As mojo says, you can add a tail. But this is Raincouver. We don't get pow, at best we get poo. Mostly we get pee.

Especially this year.

TheDoc7225 Thx Killclimbz, very clear.

killclimbz Here is the thing. No matter what snowshoes you get, if the snow gets deep you are going to sink a ton. For a 3 month course, you are going to suffer big time on what is already a suffer fest. A do it yourself split works just as well.

Yes the Lightning Ascents are about the best snowshoe out there. Depending on what you are doing that could be rough. You just don't have quite the range with them.

TheDoc7225 @donutz: using the lightning ascent, did you notice any problem of floating in the powder ?

TheDoc7225 I'm sure that the split will be the final solution, but meanwhile i'm not so keen on spending a lot of money, i'm just beginning this thing. Do you know the TSL snowshoes, are them distributed and used in the states ? The symbioz model looks great !
Thx for answering !!!!

killclimbz I would suggest a splitboard.

Donutz I have some MSR Lightning Ascent. They're worth the price just for the heel lift thing that you can click up when climbing steep slopes. I previously owned some Tubbs (the bent tube style of snowshoe) and the difference is huge!

Snowshoes and snowboard

Hi, i'm just beginning a snowalp course for 3 months in Italy. I'm asking what model of snowshoes you should suggest me. I use Salomon Pledge boots size 11, i'm 193 cm (6 feet and 3 inches) tall per 86 kgs (189 lbs). I'll carry my board (Burton Sherlock 163) on my backpack. Ifocused my attention on TSL Symbioz, Tubbs flexalp or even on MSR but i can't choose a model, please help me.
Thanks in advance
