For high quality, lightweight snowshoes made in the heart of the United States, look no further than Redfeather Snowshoes. Redfeather is based in La Crosse, Wisconsin, a small college town along the Mississippi River with plenty of bluffs, marshes and natural areas to explore. Having spent several years living in La Crosse, I can attest to this community's love for the outdoors.
With so many natural wonders to discover and such a long Wisconsin winter, it's not surprising that Redfeather was the first to introduce many snowshoe features that have made snowshoes lighter, faster and easier to maneuver. Redfeather Snowshoes was the first to commercially produce V-Tail snowshoes, the first to produce snowshoes made for running and the first to produce snowshoes made specifically for children and for women, among other firsts that revolutionized the sport.
Redfeather Snowshoes is owned by a non-profit company whose mission is to provide job opportunities to people with disabilities. Aside from technically being a nonprofit, Redfeather involves itself in the community by giving presentations to help kids stay active throughout the winter, outfitting the USA's Special Olympics Snowshoe team and sponsoring a local conservancy that protects over 12,000 acres of scenic lands in western Wisconsin.
Sierra Trading Post loves working with this unique company and regularly offers a selection of their snowshoes at great prices. My Redfeather snowshoes have helped me explore everywhere from iced over Wisconsin lakes to the summit of a Colorado fourteener. Take a look at some of our favorite Redfeather products and start exploring for yourself!
1. Redfeather Race Snowshoes: Who says you can't trail run in the winter? Just strap on a pair of Redfeather Race Snowshoes and you're ready to go! The raised V-Tail, lightweight design and hinges built to accommodate running shoes were all crafted with runners in mind. Winter running problem: solved.
2. Redfeather Hike Snowshoes: Deep snow's got nothing on Redfeather's Hike Snowshoes. Vinyl decking and an aluminum frame offer durability that lasts, and a rounded tail allows you to stay above the snow in the winteriest of wonderlands.
3. Redfeather Pace Summit Snowshoes (For Women): The Pace Summit Snowshoes were designed with a rectangular shoe made specifically for a woman's narrow stride. These snowshoes won't get in your way as you tackle fierce summits and traverse steep slopes using a Live-Action Hinge and stainless steel crampons.
4. Redfeather Trek Summit Snowshoes: Redfeather's Trek Summit Snowshoes are always up for a challenge. With their V-Tail design and aggressive, stainless steel crampons, these snowshoes were made for ascending and descending rough terrain with speed and stability.
