GV Huron Traditional Wooden Snowshoe [100 to 175+ Lbs] 2 Styles

$239.99 CAD HURON

The GV Huron Traditional Snowshoe is the best-known snowshoe whose origins can be traced back to the Huron people of Canada. It is used mostly for hunting, trapping, and long hikes in open forests and fields. It was the model preferred by the first French settlers that came to New France in 1604, and by coureurs de bois and trappers during their winter travels. Very quiet and easy to maneuver, its design provides great flotation in soft snow and its streamlined tail helps maintain a straight trajectory.
