Picking Your Snowshoe Size


Roughly match snowshoe size to your body weight plus the weight of any pack.

As a rule, smaller shoes are easier to walk on. If close to a size break, choose larger shoes if you have long legs, wear a hefty pack, regularly break trail or have light, fluffy snow.

Choose smaller shoes for shorter legs, denser snow or packed trails (even if new snow covers the old tracks).
