GV Ojibwe Traditional Wooden Snowshoe [160+ Lbs]

$259.99 CAD OJIBWE

The GV Ojibwe Full Traditional Wooden Snowshoe is a Long & Narrow Snowshoe which is ideal on plains & trails where a snowshoer will meet a more level, open terrain. The name Ojibwe [Ojibwa] comes from one of the largest of the Native peoples of Canada that settled along the Great Lakes in Ontario, in western Canada and north-central United States. This highly aesthetic snowshoe is one of the oldest of traditional wooden snowshoes. Curiously, it resembles those used by the ancient peoples of Siberia, Greenland and Scandinavia many centuries ago.

  • The unique shape provides great flotation in opened forest & field where there is a lot of snow.
  • Built with two tightly fit cross-bars tenons and a pointy nose, the Ojibwe is a really narrow snowshoe but extra long to offer maximum flotation.

  • The ancestor of the modern alpine ski.
