Our snowshoe lines this year will include a variety of different colors,
features, and price-points for men, women, and children. Snowshoe stock will become available as the snow starts to fly,
so plan on stopping by, asking questions, and trying on a pair or two. Our brands of snowshoes this year include MSR, and
our newest addition, Crescent Moon. For those of you that have never tried snowshoeing and would like to try
the sport before you purchase a pair, we also offer
snowshoe rentals at our US-31 location.
Engineered to get you
through whatever Mother Nature throws your way, MSR snowshoes are constructed on an unprecedented foundation of all-terrain
traction, modular floation and weight efficiency. MSR's Lightning Ascent series is one of the most aggressive that
Backcountry North carries; water jet-cut from a single blade of aerospace-grade aluminum, it's frame delivers unrivaled
edge-to-edge grip with minimal weight. The relatively new Modular Flotation tail additions are small and light enough
to bring on any trip; you can take advantage of the agility of a shorter, primary snowshoe in packed conditions, while adding
5-inches of flotation on-demand for deeper snow or while carrying a heavier pack. Some MSR snowshoe models offer Tevevator
heel lifts that conserves energy on the steep inclines while increasing traction. MSR Snowshoe components are proudly made in Seattle, Washington, while
Cascade Designs employees build every snowshoe they make. All these features and more make these snowhoes some of the
most versatile in the market today.
Manufactured in Boulder, Colorado, all Crescent
Moon snowshoes feature a TIG welded alumimum frame and an extremely strong decking material that has great abrasion and tear
resistance. The anatomically shaped harness system is molded into a flexible but sturdy all-foot encompassing system which
is fully adjustable over the top and around the back of your foot. Unlike any other binding, the SPL secures and translates
the motion of your foot to provide the most responsive and comfortable performance oriented capture system on any snowshoe
in the world. Each snowshoe is carefully inspected for the highest standards of performance and reliability before it is shipped.

making snowshoes since 1994 and has established a reputation for manufacturing uniquely designed, high performance showshoes.
