Snowshoeing around our place is an almost daily thing once there is enough snow on the ground. Most of the time we use stiff, heavy winter boots and the high-tech aluminum and plastic snowshoes of today. They are easy, bomb-proof and stand up to the ice and crusty snow that we seem to get a great deal of.
With the snow that came on Friday and Saturday and the cooler temperatures that followed the snow is deep, light and fluffy. Perfect for using my traditional snowshoes. Rawhide and ash, 120cm long, 36cm wide (48 x 14″). The flotation is incredible. Worn with all leather Mukluks and lamp-wick bindings I feel like I am barefoot again!
