The Tubbs Snowshoes Wayfinder is, to me, the daily driver of snowshoes. You can take it offroad or even bomb down the highway, but it’s really perfect for comfortable cruising all day long.

The aluminum frame keeps it light, while the SoftTec™ decking keeps you atop the snow for easier cruising. Featuring the Boa® Closure System, the CustomWrap™ binding makes it easy to step in, turn the dial, and head out. Carbon steel toe and heel crampons give you good grip on the uphills, downhills and side hills in packed snow conditions.

Tubbs offers two models: the Tubbs Wayfinder men’s snowshoes and the Tubbs Wayfinder women’s snowshoes – both new to their Trail Walking collection.  The Tubbs Trail Walking collection of snowshoes are geared towards those of us who follow groomed trails. These are perfect for a city park or a local forest preserve.

Tubbs Snowshoes’ mission is to encourage adventure, exercise, family fun, and connection to nature by providing high quality snowshoeing equipment, to get people outside and in the snow. They’ve been doing that since 1906 and have built the brand through quality products and grassroots action like the Get Outdoors Program. Ambassadors like myself try out the snowshoes, get hooked, and want everyone to get outside with us.
