There are still miles of steep hills and snowy valleys standing between you and a comfortable couch, hot chocolate, and a warm fire at the cabin. It's a good thing you have the Easton Mountain Products Women's Artica Hike Snowshoe to get you there. Its aluminum frame uses flexible material across the left and right rails for better articulation over uneven terrain that reduces stress in your ankle, knee, and hip. Easton Mountain Products raised the tips to better handle the steeper sections, and this women's model has a shorter step pattern that eases your strides and means the snowshoes won't catch on eachother. Made mostly with aluminum, this snowshoe brings the durability without the weight so you can cover miles faster for many seasons. The Quick-Cinch binding system offers a quick and easy one-handed pull-and-go method to get in and out, and padding covers the bindings to hug your boot and eliminate any uncomfortable pressure points. Its decking material is highly durable and withstands most abrasions and punctures. The Virtual Pivot Traction cam digs into snow deeper for better traction over slippery surfaces, and it allows a more natural step for better control over steep hills. And the stainless steel crampon resists wear against dirty trails and paved roads. You'll be back in that cabin sipping cocoa and playing games before you know it.
