When creating high-end snowshoes, you need to choose a material that can offer excellent strength properties but also has great flexibility. Ash wood is a fine choice for snowshoes, providing strength, shock absorption, and flexibility. Tried and true ash trees make for strong snowshoes that withstand the elements and constant use.
Picking Your Snowshoe Size
Snowshoe sizing is based on your body weight plus the weight of a backpack. As a general rule, smaller snowshoes are easier to walk on. If close to a size break, choose larger snowshoes if you have long legs, carry a heavy pack, regularly break trail in deep snow or soft powder, or have light, fluffy snow cover. Choose smaller snowshoes for short legs, denser snow, or packed trails (even if new snow covers the old tracks).
