Looking for an all-around ability snowshoe? Check out Atlas Treeline

Snowshoeing is a great way to explore the outdoors when the snow comes, offering the ability to trek through both serious backcountry or walk through the local forest preserves. Much like skis, you can find a snowshoe designed for specific winter activities and conditions, from sleek racers to bulky shoes for deep and steep terrain. The Atlas Treeline (or the Elektra Treeline for women) is part of the trail series and is a good all-around shoe that can do just about anything.
