The Ojibwe traditional wood snowshoes 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. Quiet and stable, it is a good all-around snowshoe for long distance adventure.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.
