Do these shoes kick up snow like the 2008 version? My wife loves everything about hers, but the snow kick-up has become a deal-breaker.

My parents bought the Atlas 12s last season and had the same problem. I can't attest to the newer models, but I believe the snow kick-up is tied to the spring-loaded suspension, which is pretty much the same between the two models. My mother believes it has something to do with the pointed tail, as well. I have MSR Lightning Ascent snow shoes and have not had this problem.

Happy trails!
