Hello from CO (with new snowshoes)!

Hi all! My name is Gerry and my pair of Atlas Access Snowshoes were just delivered!! They are much needed!

Last week, I tried hiking Hessie Trail to King's Lake (which is just east of the Continental Divide) - without snowshoes. I made it almost 1/2 way before turning around. I got tired of my boots sinking 2-3" with each step - and sometimes even sinking up to my knees in the snow. Ugh.

Tomorrow - weather permitting - I am going to hike Hessie Trail to King's Lake. This time, I will be wearing my shiny new snowshoes.

@Gerry welcome to the community, and thanks for sharing the update on your new snowshoes! Hopefully you'll find them to be super helpful on your hike tomorrow!

@Gerry Welcome!

Did you get a chance to use your snowshoes? How did you enjoy them?

Hi John,

It's a wonderfully different experience hiking across snow with these puppies on! I can't wait for this winter to try them again. It was a great purchase. I only wish that I did it sooner.
