View Full Version : Snowshoe recommendation
11-23-2006, 08:09 AM
Anyone here that can recommend a pair? I'm looking to spend about 150 bucks or cheaper if possible. I'll be hiking in somewhat hilly country about once or twice a week with a 20ish pound pack. Thank you in advance.

Both Atlas and Tubbs make good shoes. We have Atlas and they've been great. If you're not familiar with snowshoes, you need to make sure you buy a pair that are rated for your weight plus gear. If there is an REI near you, they can make recommendations for your application.

I tried some MSR Denali snowshoes last winter and they were great. Checking 'em out online I see they recommend people use tails depending on your total weight.
If you're going to be going up and down hills, you may want to get a set with heel lift bars (like the MSR Ascent) to save your calves some agony.
