Float over snow. Go slow, steady. Be thrifty. One of the least expensive pair of snowshoes you can get is the best. Unfashionably molded of single piece of unbreakable bomb-proof plastic these Denali are idiot-proof easy to get on and off, very lightweight, and small enough to fit into your carry-on luggage! Try that with fancy ones. A classic model by now, any bugs in the near-solid-state Denalis have long been worked out, so these economical shoes have a huge following. I find them far more comfortable than other snowshoes I’ve used for casual excursions. They have optional extenders for heavier weight or snow conditions.
