GV Ojibwe Traditional Snowshoes

  • Product Number: 3319

The name Ojibwe comes from one of the largest of the Native peoples of Canada that settled along the Great Lakes in Ontario, in western Canada and north-central United States. This highly aesthetic snowshoe is one of the oldest of traditional wooden snowshoes. Curiously, it resembles those used by the ancient peoples of Siberia, Greenland and Scandinavia many centuries ago. Its unique shape provides a great flotation in opened forest and field where there is a lot of snow. Its narrow and lifted nose, combined with its long narrow tail, are providing great gliding properties in downhill on hard snow. It might be the ancestor of the modern alpine ski. Quiet and stable, it is a good all-around snowshoe for long distance adventure.
