Atlas Junior 718 Snowshoes feature kid friendly easy click-in buckles and adjustable footbeds that allow them to grow with your child.
- Mountain Gear
The key to unlocking outdoor winter fun, these children's snowshoes are kid-friendly, easy to put on and take off, even for kids, and provide a platform that facilitates both great float on the snow and a natural, unrestricted stride. Warning, when kids use these snow shoes they often times never want to go back inside!
The kid-friendly design of the 718 Junior packs Atlas® performance into a small package, built tough for kids who want to walk on water! Lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum frames and tough, one-piece Nytex™ decking meet all weather conditions and provide lasting durability. Adjustable bindings fit most children's winter shoes and boots; they go on easy and cinch securely. Robust traction system with aluminum toe and heel crampons offers stability and traction on inclines and traverses. Recommended load specification includes weight of hiker with gear.
The Atlas Junior Snowshoe remains one of our top choices for introducing kids to snow hikes, especially if you're looking for a durable design that can last through a few sibling hand-me-down cycles. These one-size snowshoes are great for getting over and around rolling winter hills and slick hardpack slopes, even if those obstacles are no further than a few yards from the backyard porch. You'll find nothing toy-like about the sturdy aluminum-framed snowshoe and two-piece toe and heel cleats. Some of the staff members here have used Atlas Junior Snowshoes for their kids and love the versatile webbing shoe harness because once it's sized and attached, there's no need to stop for perpetual adjustments throughout a winter hike or casual neighborhood walk. The Junior Snowshoe has an 18-inch length that won't hinder small gaits while handling weights up to 80 lbs. Because kids tend to use their snowshoes to venture into spaces where the snow isn't hardpack, stick to the weight guidelines for exceptional floatation results.

Snowshoeing is the perfect way to introduce children to the wonders of winter. Built on a sturdy 18 aluminum frame, the Atlas Junior provides excellent flotation for kids up to 80 lbs. The aluminum toe and heel crampons offer proven traction for sure steps. Because kids grow faster than their gear, the adjustable footbed of the binding will change with your childs foot size. No fuss and no hassle with complicated strapping; a quick click of a buckle is all it takes to get your kids ready to play in the snow.
