The Alaskan traditional wood snowshoe, also known as the Yukon wood snowshoe, is characterized by its long and unique shape. Available in 2 sizes, 10" x 46" and 10" x 56", It appears to be a happy blend of the Huron and Bear Paw models. It originated among the First Nations of western Canada and the northern United States. It is used mainly for hunting during long periods of travel in open forests and plains. Its long streamlined tail helps maintain a straight trajectory. Very quiet and stable, its versatility makes it an ideal choice for long-distance hikes.

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.
