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 using the pictogram on the snowshoe deck.
Adjustable: Snowshoes must be properly adjusted to ensure your safety.
1/ Your feet must reach the ends (front and back) to optimize boot support.
2 / The straps or buckles must be tightened as much as possible.
Choose snowshoes according to your weight:
Choose snowshoes according to the wearer’s weight (including the weight of their backpack) to enable them to remain on the surface of the snow. This is known as lift. There are different snowshoe sizes to adapt to all sizes and hiking practices.
15 to 50 kg: child model
40 to 80 kg: small to medium deck
60 to 120 kg: large deck
Heel lift for greater ease when climbing:
Choose snowshoes with a heel lift to walk easily and comfortably uphill. This removable heel lift raises the heel. When climbing steep hills, it reduces the effect of the slope and saves you energy.
Using poles for increased stability when snowshoeing:
We strongly recommend that you use poles for better stability when snowshoeing. Especially if you intend to walk on slopes or on powder snow where you may sink in more. There are 2 types of baskets. Choose large baskets so the poles remain on the surface.
Choose breathable clothing for snow 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, and 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.
Dressing using the 3 layer technique
Whatever your cold-weather activity, use the three-layer principle:
Layer 1: A high-tech base layer to wick moisture away from the body to keep your skin dry.
Layer 2: A fleece or sweater to provide warmth and transfer moisture outwards.
Layer 3: A jacket to protect against outdoor conditions: rain, snow, and wind.
To eliminate moisture, the whole outfit must be breathable.
The outfit is suitable for snowshoeing:
The ideal snowshoeing outfit. It enables sufficient warmth, while integrating ventilation zippers to reduce perspiration and stretch inserts to enable greater freedom of movement. Hardwearing boots with good grip for great traction on snow:
SH500 X-Warm fleece, SH520 X-Warm pants, SH520 X-Warm boots.
For snowshoeing, you need warm, waterproof and breathable high hiking boots. Also choose boots with good grip for areas where you will remove your snowshoes (in the parking lot or if there is not enough snow).
Never overlook safety.
For off-piste hiking, make sure you are equipped with maps, a compass and/or GPS, 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 look for a victim. And do not forget to revise your security basics.
