Falling through the ice on a remote snowshoe expedition!

A sunny lunch stop interrupted!
Cold, dry snow is used to absorb moisture before it can soak through all the clothing layers. Harold had no problems continuing on the rest of the day without need to change his footwear or pants.
This is a great example of what we call transition ice which we find most commonly on small rivers and creeks. Where the snow has drifted along shore there is often a narrow band of weak (or non-existent) ice right along shore, which is hidden under the drifted snow. We try to be particularly careful when transitioning from shore to creek and back again.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This was our longest, hardest trip of 2016, and was intended for experienced adult guests, and was advertised as such. This was our first time travelling on this particular waterway. On many other trips (including student and youth trips) we stick to waterways that we have traveled many times and are very familiar with.

Run | Atlas Snowshoes

Developed to provide a precision fit for running in technical winter terrain, the Run snowshoe features the fastest binding in the Atlas line, the Speed Helix. Built with the Boa Closure System, this binding delivers a micro-adjusted fit for precision and comfort on technical terrain, with a low profile, lightweight design that keeps you running further.

The aluminum Dual-Trac crampons are designed for a lightweight step while still preforming in icy terrain. And the SLS suspension system keeps the snowshoe under your foot for quick maneuverability on technical slopes.

To use, simply step through the webbing and place the ball of your foot squarely on the Atlas logo and twist the side step Boa closure system until tight. Tighten the heel by threading the heel strap through the metal opening, looping back to secure.

Whether on a city trail for your daily jog, or competing in a qualifying race, the Atlas Run takes snowshoe running to the next level.

Exploring Snowshoe Mountain West Virginia - Ikon Pass

With loads of awesome resorts to shred, I took my Ikon Pass to Snowshoe, West VA and went for a rip on my snowboard in the Polar Vortex! Cold temps meant lots of great snow to ride, and some local help from Shawn Cassell, Kurt Schachner, and Grant Reeves! Snowshoe is such a gem well off the beaten path, but such a rad place to shred in a place where you don't think people go skiing.
