The ALPTREK Snowshoe Kit is designed to take your hiking experience into the winter months with ease. Our snowshoes allow you to stay afloat while walking through snow-filled trails and mountain valleys. Getting in and out of these snowshoes is super easy – give the bindings a firm tug, secure the strap on the strap hooks, and you’re ready to go! Traction is provided by a steel crampon at the back of the snowshoe combined with an aluminum crampon towards the front. For moderate to steep slopes, the integrated heel lift can be raised to put your foot in a neutral position and alleviate calf strain and fatigue. Offered with a set of adjustable aluminum trekking poles, various pole accessories and a convenient carry bag, the ALPTREK Snowshoe Kit provides quality and reliability for all winter explorers.
Optimal load* refers to the weight of the user plus the gear they are carrying.
The ALPTREK 821 and 825 Snowshoe Kits fit most standard hiking boots up to size 12. Some oversized hunting or work boots may not be suitable for use with included heel strap. For shoe sizes 12 and above, we offer an Extended Heel Strap. To purchase an Extended Heel Strap, contact us at email@example.com. The ALPTREK 930 Snowshoe Kit comes standard with the Extended Heel Strap and fits most standard hiking boots up to size 14.

ALPTREK snowshoes are recommended for adult use only.
While snowshoeing is a beginner friendly activity we recommend all users be properly educated themselves by taking winter safety and/or avalanche safety classes. It's always a good idea to practice with your gear in a safe environment prior to hitting the snowy trails.
