  1. Very cold morning Modern mountaineering snowshoes are great for hard-packed trails, but in soft snow, and particularly when pulling a toboggan, traditional snowshoe shapes and sizes really shine. After years of experience and hundreds of kilometres of testing we’ve settled upon a marriage of traditional snowshoes frames and modern weaving materials.  The monofilament fishing line (400lb, 250lb and 220lb test) we use is lighter, stronger and more abrasion resistant than traditional rawhide. It also needs no varnish, and is much less likely to stick to wet snow.  Quite simply it performs better and lasts longer than rawhide across a much wider range of conditions (and doesn’t require annual maintenance).  Frames are high quality hardwood.  Rugged and lightweight, these are the best snowshoes we’ve found for wilderness travel away from packed trails.

Selecting a Style: Bear paw snowshoes are great for travel in thick brush or around camp, but do not perform as well as Huron style snowshoes in wide-open areas (lakes and rivers).  We use Huron shoes to travel in, and switch to Bear Paws around camp. Find out more here.

Note: Traditional snowshoes do not include bindings.  We sell different styles of bindings to accommodate different footwear, and a large variety may be available through local sporting stores.  See our Binding Selection Guide here.

    Am REALLY enjoying my snowshoes! They’re not only beautiful in their baby blues, but very light and highly functional. I’m surprised and impressed by the traditional wick binding, that something so simple can work so well! Bravo!
