Our journey is deep into the snowy unknown of our local wilderness and our mount of choice is the Range BC Snowshoe. The reason is clear–this trusty stallion uses a strong aluminum frame with saw-toothed rails to keep our load low and traction high. Speaking of traction Atlas tossed in their Helium crampon the lightest in their lineup to bite into the ground below and ensure we’re never falling to our knees. The Range has a PackFlat binding that’s formed to fit our big mountaineering and snowboarding boots. If we’re not out there in those bulky boots we can pack the binding flat to trek in our normal winter hiking boots.
