We don't have a lot of use for snowshoes in the Phoenix area for some reason, but for those of you headed to slightly cooler weather, here's a great option for traipsing around in the snow without wearing yourself out. This is a new design for snowshoes that features lightweight foam instead of a heavy metal frame as support. That means less energy exertion to cover the same distance, and there is no technical skill required to put on - just stick pretty much any size foot in the intuitive binding straps and start hoofing it like a pro. These are roughly 24" x 8" and weigh only 3.5 pounds for the pair, so not much more than hiking boots. They work best for folks under 200 pounds. And, don't run around on a dry parking lot with these; they're designed for snow only and you don't want to needlessly wear down the tread and spikes on the bottom. Fits sizes 7 Women to 14 Men. When introduced at the influential Outdoor Retailer show, this innovative new snow traveler garnered awards from Outside Magazine, Gear Junkie, Backpack Gear Test, Men's Journal and others.
Check out the video below or see more at Crescent Moon's web site, or give us a call for more information. We'll ship right to you or your destination for easy pickup. Or stop by our store in the desert and take with you for your trip up to Flagstaff. We have a lower-cost small group/family rental program for that short jaunt up to snow country with the family or friends - 4 pair for the price of 3 for a full weekend use - save 29 bucks! Use the drop down box above to select that option.
If you want to keep a pair after trying them out, we'll deduct the rental portion from the purchase price of $159.
