About Snowshoes

The first snowshoe was created thousands of years ago as an essential tool for our ancestors to traverse their wintry environs. The materials and designs may have changed from the original wood and rawhide, but snowshoes are still a vital tool for winter work and play. 
ALPTREK snowshoes are designed to take your hiking experience into the winter months with ease. ALPTREK snowshoe kits come with a set of snowshoes, a carry case, and aluminum quick lock trekking poles with rubber tips, snow baskets, and mud baskets.

Integrated Heel Lift

Included on all ALPTREK snowshoes

The integrated heel lift alleviates calf strain and fatigue on steeper inclines. If you are snowshoeing up a steep incline, you will benefit from the comfort and efficient functioning of this helpful feature. To use, simply pull up on the rubber pull tab until it clicks into place. Now the heel of your foot will rest on the heel lift as you hike up the incline.

Quick Lock
