Snowshoe Kit HD
Available at Costco.com
Ready to upgrade your winter adventures? The ALPTREK Snowshoe Kit HD improves on the standard Snowshoe Kit with aircraft-grade 7075 Aluminum and a new Quick-Fit Binding, making the Snowshoe Kit HD lighter, more durable and easier to adjust. The tough aluminum front and steel rear crampons dig into the snow to provide dependable traction regardless of the conditions and the integrated heel lift puts your foot in a neutral position and alleviates calf strain on uphill climbs. Assisting you on your trek are the 7075 Aluminum trekking poles with two basket accessory options. To make sure you have a safe place to store your Snowshoe Kit HD, each kit includes a convenient carry bag made of durable ripstop nylon and featuring two carry handles.
Optimal load* refers to the weight of the user plus the gear they are carrying.

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 HD 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.
