Cascade Mountain Tech AlpTrek snowshoes are designed to take your hiking experience into the winter months with ease. Our snowshoes allow you to stay afloat while walking through snow-filled trails and mountain valleys. Getting in and out of these snowshoes is super easy – give the bindings a firm snug, secure the strap on the strap hooks, and you’re ready to go! Traction is provided by a steel crampon at the back of the snowshoe combined with an aluminum crampon towards the front. For moderate to steep slopes, the integrated heel lift can be raised to put your foot in a neutral position and alleviate calf strain and fatigue. Offered with a set of adjustable aluminum trekking poles, various pole accessories and a convenient carry bag, the AlpTrek snowshoe series provides quality and reliability for all winter explorers.

Snowshoes FAQs

While the shoes can be used on either foot, we recommend finding the Left and Right indicator on the pull tab of the heel lift.

The integrated heel lift alleviates calf strain and fatigue on steeper inclines. If you are snowshoeing up a steep incline, you’ll benefit from the comfort and efficient functioning of this helpful feature. To use, simply pull up on the rubber pull tab until it clicks into place. Now the heel of your foot will rest on the heel lift as you hike up the incline.

(Follow these instructions if the shoe is on the correct foot as described above.) • Tighten the straps by pulling the brightly colored rubber grip inwards until comfortable • To loosen, locate the smaller strap attached to the brightly colored binding tabs. Pull this smaller strap outwards.

 Easy Pull Binding 

 Tightening the heel strap

We recommend using a stable, insulated, waterproof hiking boot when snowshoeing.

Ski boots are too large to use with the snowshoes. Typical snowboard boots up to size 12 will fit in a Large (930) snowshoe.

They are unisex, just choose the proper load weight for your adventures. 

No. Trekking poles are recommended for increased balance and stability.

The included carry bag is large enough to hold everything included in the Snowshoe Kit. Start by laying one snowshoe on top of the other and put them into the bag with the toe pointed into the bag first. Then place your trekking poles and accessories in.

The storage bag zippers are not explicitly designed to lock, but a small luggage lock or zip tie can be used.

SAFETY WARNING

AlpTrek snowshoes are recommended for adult use only.

While snowshoeing is a beginner-friendly activity, we recommend all users properly educate & prepare themselves by taking winter safety and/or avalanche safety classes and by practicing with their gear in a safe environment prior to hitting the snow.
