Kids deserve to be as comfortable as adults in the snow, which is why Tubbs redesigned their popular Kids' Glacier Snowshoes this year and gave them the same ergonomic benefits found on their bigger shoes.

Disconnect your tween from his or her cell or computer and reconnect with the beauty of the mountains with the Tubbs Kids' Glacier Snowshoes. Completely redesigned, the Glacier features a simple tightening and locking buckle on the QuickLock binding system that makes getting in and out of the Glacier's a cinch while also providing all-day stability and control. Its Fit Step aluminum frame features a slightly upturned, rounded tail to reduce muscular skeletal impact on hips, knees, and ankle joints by 10%. Equipped with a Fixed toe cord pivot system, the Glacier offers an efficient stride over flat and rolling terrain in packed snow conditions while keeping the snowshoe close to the foot for maximum response. In addition, its Recreational crampon has front and rear braking teeth for a secure grip uphill, downhill, and side hill in packed snow conditions.

The Tubbs Glacier Youth Snowshoe has many of the performance features designed into Tubbs adult models making it the perfect snowshoe for youth and pre-teens who weigh up to 120 lbs. A Rotating Toe Cord system allows the snowshoe to drop and shed snow, and the QuickDraw binding cinches easily to hold the foot securely for a full-day hike. At only 2.8 lbs a pair, the Glacier is easy to walk and play in. Now, the whole family can enjoy snowshoeing!
