The Redfeather Story Redfeather Snowshoes was founded in 1988 by a snow-bound triathlete with the idea of designing a better snowshoe that would allow racers to train during the snowy Colorado winter months. His original design became the legendary Redfeather Redtail, the lightweight aluminum V-tail snowshoe that transformed snowshoeing from an awkward mode of transportation into the modern sport that we all know today. Located in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Redfeather continues to strive for technical innovation, performance, and unsurpassed quality in all of its snowshoes.
