I loved being out in the wilderness alone with God in such beautiful country. As I was snowshoeing down the mountain, in powder the shoe slipped until I hit some ice. Going on someone else's blazed trail is easy, it's harder when you blaze your own through the untrekked snow...especially powder.

Just bought it today. Live in Denver, we got about 30 inches wanted to walk around our neighborhood. 20 minutes into the walk they broke. The steel or aluminum rings that hold the shoe around the frame broke off. Don't think they are steel, which is the problem.

For the spirited day hiker who wants superior technology without breaking the bank, there's the Tubbs Venture snowshoes made exclusively for Eastern Mountain Sports.
The Tubbs Venture 21 women's snowshoes are made for winter fun, when exploring rolling terrain is a must. Women-specific Fit-Step frames are tapered to enhance medial clearance and promote a comfortable and natural gait, stride and stance. Women-specific bindings are engineered to closely interface with the shape and size of women's boots, eliminating sloppy movement underfoot. Lightweight, 6000-series aluminum frames feature broad, rounded tails for flotation and balance over powder and packed trails. Waterproof TriTec(TM) decking, a weave of PVC and polyester fabric, provides lightweight flotation, and is virtually maintenance-free. ReAct(TM) bindings form closely around boots, and asymmetrical bases mimic boot shape to enhance fit and eliminate sloppy movement. ControlWings(TM) align and center heels for stability, a plus when traversing slopes.

If you want superior snowshoeing technology without breaking the bank, Tubbs has their Venture series in men's and women's models. Whether you're logging miles through the snow-covered trees to stay fit or enjoying a stroll with family, the ergonomically designed Fit-Step frame makes your adventure more comfortable by reducing muscular-skeletal impact by 10%, while the RII Revolution Response suspension system gives you lateral flexibility. The gender-specific ReAct binding features a dual-pull system and patented Control Wings for directional stability. Closeout, limited to stock on hand. Tubbs Venture snowshoe features: RII Revolution Response: Energy efficient and effective, RII delivers shock absorbing lateral flex and quick side slope responsiveness to maintain a natural foot position in all conditions. Full step rotation allows the tail of the snowshoe to drop, shedding snow and allowing the toe crampon to bite deeply. Fit-Step Frame: The innovative and biomechanical aluminum Fit-Step frame, designed with a slightly upturned, rounded tail, reduces muscular skeletal impact on hip, knee and ankle joints by 10%. ReAct Binding: The asymmetric and easy to use ReAct binding combines gender-specific, stable base construction with Tubbs' patented Control Wing technology for a comfortable and secure fit. Talon Crampon: Compact, carbon steel Talon toe crampon provides constant contact on all types of terrain and engages the slope more quickly with the Fit-Step frame shape. A Carbon steel heel crampon, centered under the boot, optimizes grip on descent and side hill traverse. SoftTec Decking: Tubbs SoftTec decking provides durable, lightweight flotation. Women's-Specific Design: Tubbs was the first company to manufacture women's-specific snowshoes, and we remain committed with women's-specific versions of ever model. Tubbs women's-specific snowshoes are lighter in weight, feature ergonomically tapered frame shapes for ease of stride, and offer custom fit women's-specific bindings sized and scaled from a woman's boot in sizes 5-11.
