I know we have a few BB regulars who live in northern (snowy) climes and was wondering if any of you have recs for snowshoes. DH and I want to buy some for walking around our 16 acres and maybe down to the mailbox after a big snow :) He weighs around 240, so not sure if that impacts what kind he should look at...thanks for any help!
My snow shoes look an awful lot like flip flops so I can't help you there.Al (Gettinnear) (in Ft. Lauderdale)
Bosslady,some snowshoe places to read abouthttp://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/snowshoes.htmlhttp://www.orssnowshoesdirect.com/help-how-to-choose-snowsho...http://www.livestrong.com/article/180375-how-to-fit-snowshoe...http://www.sierratradingpost.com/s~-snowshoes/?perPage=24Personally, our family has used for many years and really likeTubbs snowshoes.Linda
I've been using my MSR's for quite a few years now. Not like any other brand of snowshoes and you can buy them with "tails" to extend their weight range.You can find them at all of the finer retailers. REI comes to mind as always.I hope for some snow this season.Cross Country skis are a whole other beast and nothing like snowshoes.Unlike someone else on this board who shall remain nameless, I read your post and understand what you are looking to do.Snowshoes provide a great work out too.bigpix
Snowshoes provide a great work out too.Heck yeah! Muscles you didn't know you had will protest the next day. I can't help with brands though, I bought a pair of used wooden ones from a friend, Work great, but lately there's been a decided lack of snow. Be interesting to see what happens this year.RM
Thanks for all the replies; still looking and will check REI...forgot about them!
