Why We Like The MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoe

Balancing our needs for float, traction, and light weight, the MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoe carries us through the backcountry with confidence. The frame provides 360-degree traction when we're crossing a field of powder or ascending a wind-blown ridgeline, and Paragon bindings work with steel crampons to provide sure-footed traction.


  • Lightweight yet burly snowshoes for gnarly adventures
  • Ballistic nylon decking stands up to rough terrain
  • 360-degree traction frame provides grip anywhere
  • DTX Crampons with Paragon bindings offer support
  • Heel risers help reduce fatigue during long climbs
