Classic Canadian Wooden Snowshoes
Wood, Rawhide, Leather, Metal
This pair of vintage snowshoes is ready for a walk through the woods with some fresh fallen snow, or can go right above the fireplace at the ski condo. Handmade in Canada the same way for many, many years. White Ash is harvested, then steam bent into the snowshoe shape. Rawhide lacing is then woven (while wet) to create the distinctive snowshoe footprint. When the rawhide dries, it becomes taught and can hold the weight of a grown adult on the snow. Leather bindings were a major upgrade from a simple cloth rope tie, which constituted the foot attachments on the earliest snowshoes.
