I need to get snowshoes for hiking backcountry and have no idea where to start. Whats a good, cheap snowshoe that will clip to my ski boots?
I'd recommend stomping into your local mountain thrift store with your ski boots on and seeing what they have. Otherwise MSR Denalis. I'm saving for AT bindings and skins.
first of all, thanks.. second, im taking an avalanche class next semester.. ive got it covered, thanks for saving my life
also are you saying that I should get completely seperate touring bindings or just get trekkers? I really dont want to get a completely seperate binding so if trekkers would work for what im looking for thatd probably be what I would go for, dont really wanna remount my skis with new bindings right after i payed 300 for them. Just looking for the best option to do a lil hiking at brighton, just to get some better lines
thats good, i hate to see people getting in over their heads.
for what it sounds like you're going to be doing trekkers might be nice, but sooner or later you're going to want AT bindings
either way you need skins, check out black diamond, g3, or BCA
