The Huron snowshoe is the best-known snowshoe whose origins can be traced back to the Huron people of Canada. It is used mostly for hunting, trapping, and long hikes in open forests and fields. It was the model preferred by the first French settlers that came to New France in 1604, and by coureurs des bois and trappers during their winter travels. Very quiet and easy to maneuver, its design provides great flotation in soft snow and its streamlined tail helps maintain a straight trajectory.

Note: It is recommended to apply varnish once a year at the end of the season to prevent the wood frame and raw hide to absorb moisture and water. That will extend the life of your natural snowshoe. We recommend using a wood boat varnish.
