Snowshoes have been around for thousands of years and were used
in Asia as an early means of transport through heavy snow. The
original models have not changed much with time because they have
proven to be essential equipment for those traveling on foot in
frigid, icy environments.
Traditional snowshoes are constructed from
wooden frames, allowing for reduced noise and better buoyancy on
the ice and snow than aluminum and plastic varieties. They are
available in diverse lengths, widths and style preferences. Laced
varieties can be easily maintained and become a keepsake item for
generations over time.
Wood snowshoes are available for many different
needs when residing in cold climates with large amounts of snow.
Racing snowshoes allow for greater speed in winter conditions when
taking part in competitive events on designated trails. Sport snow
shoes are made specifically for those participating in snow-related
recreational activities in wooded regions.
Military snowshoes are made of magnesium alloy for lightweight
wear and ease of movement, weighing only a few pounds. Webbing is
constructed of stainless steel cable and all joints are welded. The
entire shoe is covered with a durable protective coating to
maintain good working order. Military snowshoes
are available for the public to purchase as well and make a good
investment for the snow enthusiast.
