We Now Offer Snowshoes for the Entire Family

We Now Offer Snowshoes for the Entire Family

We’re excited to announce we have added snowshoes to our line up of products we stock in our stores. We have snowshoes for the entire family starting with kids shoes from MSR. For adult snowshoes we offer models from MSR, Crescent Moon, and Garneau.

The MSR model we are stocking is the EVO. These snowshoes offer modular flotation tails allowing for a smaller more maneuverable shoe for packed conditions and when conditions demand more flotation you can snap on the optional 6-inch tails.

The Crescent Moon Eva Foam snowshoe is the first and only snowshoe that doesn’t rely on the awkward pivoting-hinge mechanism to function, but instead uses a rocker shaped platform to promote a seamless heel-to-toe motion for walking, just like a normal hiking or running shoe. Recommended for first timers, outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, runners, and people who love to get out in the snow.

Our models from Garneau are the Massif & Blizzard. Both offer the convenience of a BOA binding system which is easy on and off and mitten friendly. The Blizzard offers a more aggressive crampon and a heel raiser which reduces calf fatigue while climbing.

Poles are an important accessory in most conditions when snowshoeing so we have a few pole options as well from MSR and Black Diamond.
