How to use snowshoes?
Before putting them on: There is a snowshoe for the right foot and one for the left foot, check you have the correct snowshoe on each foot thanks to the pictogram on the snowshoe deck.
Your snowshoes must be properly adjusted to ensure your safety.
1/ Your feet must reach the ends (front and back) to optimize support of your boots.
2 / The straps or buckles must be tightened as much as possible.
Choose your snowshoes according to your weight:
Choose snowshoes depending on the weight of the wearer (including the weight of their backpack) to enable them to remain on the surface of the snow. This is what is known as lift. There are different sizes of snowshoes to adapt to all sizes and hiking practices.
15 to 50 kg 33-110 lb: child model
40 to 80 kg 88-176 lb: small to medium deck
60 to 120 kg 132-264 lb: large deck
Heel lift for greater ease when climbing:
Choose snowshoes with a heel lift to walk more easily and comfortably uphill. This removable heel lift raises the heel. It can be used when climbing steep hills to reduce the effect of the slope and save energy.
Using poles for increased stability when snowshoeing:
We strongly recommend that you use a pair of poles for better stability when snowshoeing. Especially if you intend to walk on slopes (uphill, downhill, etc) or on powder snow where you may sink in more. There are 2 types of basket, choose large baskets so that the poles remain on the surface.
Choose breathable clothing for winter hiking:
We tend to over-dress when hiking in the snow because we are afraid of the cold. However, you will heat up very quickly when snowshoeing.
Adopt the 3 layer technique!
This technique enables warmth to be adapted to your effort: remove clothing when it is warm, put it back on when it is colder or during breaks. If you are too hot, you will perspire more, which will cool you down during breaks or when going downhill on a hike.
Dressing using the 3 layer technique?
To dress correctly in the winter, no matter what your activity is, we recommend that you apply the 3 layer principle:
Layer 1: The technical base layer will enable moisture to be wicked away to keep skin dry.
Layer 2: The second layer (fleece, pullover) provides warmth and wicks away moisture.
Layer 3: The jacket protects you from outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind.
The outfit must be breathable to wick away moisture.
The outfit is suitable for snowshoeing:
Our design team has worked on the ideal snowshoeing outfit. It enables sufficient warmth, while integrating ventilation zips to reduce perspiration and stretch inserts to enable amplitude of movement. Hardwearing boots with good grip for great traction on snow:
Fleece SH500 X-WARM, Pants SH520 X-WARM, Boots SH520 X-Warm
For snowshoeing, you need warm high hiking boots that are waterproof and breathable. Also go for boots with good grip for the areas where you will remove your snowshoes (on the car park or if there is not enough snow).
NEVER OVERLOOK SAFETY...
For off-piste hiking, carry a map, a compass and/or GPS and an Avalanche Victim Detector, a shovel, and a probe. These three pieces of equipment enable you to be found if you are caught in an avalanche or to look for a victim. Don't forget to review the safety basics.
