Hit the trail with these with a light pack. The snow was a little crusty on top and light under but fairly deep, some of the trails were a bit packed. Really satisfied with the stability of these, both side hill and up/down hill. Also used the tails and they really reduce the maneuverability. The bindings are really solid and comfortable. The only issue with them is they will leave a mark on your boots.
I love the solid plastic construction of these snowshoes - much more durable than my pair of Tubbs. The crampons work great even in hard packed/icy snow and the heel lift makes climbing hills a breeze.
