Gear Review: Dion SnowshoesCustom fit snowshoes that are fast and fun
Before I tried Dion, snowshoeing was a clumsy, plodding, and waddling experience for me–a way to get from point A to B without postholing. Why did they have to be so wide and heavy? Easy: They don't. Text and photos by Dan Larson.
Made by longtime trail and snowshoe racer Bob Dion, Dion Snowshoes are some of the narrowest on the market, ranging from 7 to 9.5 inches wide, and all but one model weighs less than 3 pounds.
