Our Traditional Wooden Snowshoe Models
With a superior weight vs. flotation ratio, this model is perfect for deep snow and backcountry explorations. As winter warms, the snow gets wetter; wet snow won’t stick to this wooden frame. Additionally, the suspended free rotation pivot helps facilitate maximum flotation to keep your steps light. 14 oversized crampons are attached to the decking, along with six tempered steel tips and a front traction bar. Combined, these ensure a great grip on ice. Easy to use binding gives a full stride with comfort.
