Elongated Bear Paw, Heavy Duty Lacing: Built with two tightly fit cross-bars tenons, the Elongated Bear Paw is narrower but longer than the original bear paw. This snowshoe lacks a tail, easing backward steps and facilitate turning around obstacles. This type of snowshoe is recommended for use on trails and in mountains. The heavy duty lacing is ideal for spring time conditions and wet snow.

The Elongated Bearpaw is also called: Green Mountain or otter.

The full hide lacing is made of cowhide from which we removed fur and excess fat. It’s a very strong material that is water resistant. The full hide can be cut in narrow strip to allow a Classic lacing (tight lacing, 1/4" – 6mm) recommended for dry and powder snow, or in larger stripes (1/2" - 13mm) to produce the heavy duty lacing well adapted to melting and wet snow conditions. We also use this 1/2" - 13mm lace for the Leisure lacing as it is a more spaced lacing perfect for occasional use and decoration.

We recommend storing the snowshoes in a dry cool place, protected from the sun. At the beginning of every season, we also recommend cleaning the snowshoes and re-varnishing them with an oil-based wood varnish for exterior use.
