Why We Like The MSR Lightning Trail Snowshoe

When our excursions take place on mellow, rolling terrain, we strap into the MSR Lightning Trail Snowshoe to cover some serious ground with lightweight efficiency. In creating the Lightning Trail, MSR's goal was to streamline the design, cutting down on weight without sacrificing performance to keep us cruising over the snow—and we're happy to say they nailed it. MSR gave the Lightning Trail their 360-degree Traction Frame for premium edge-to-edge grip, which works in tandem with the easy-to-use Paraglide binding and stretch mesh that fits nearly any footwear.


  • Lightweight snowshoe for quiet, comfortable hiking and touring
  • Single-piece aluminum frame provides low-weight, stable footing
  • 360-degree Traction Frame offers solid edge-to-edge grip
  • Pivot crampons grip well on slick ice or slippery trails
  • Paraglide binding handles rolling, uneven terrain with ease
  • Stretch mesh hugs feet securely for use with virtually any boot
  • Streamlined TPU-coated nylon deck is lightweight and quiet

I've had and used snowshoes all my life... this set proved themselves through one of the snowiest winters recorded in Wyoming, this year... extremely well constructed, as lightweight as one can hope for, durable and reliable... I will never be without a pair... Tongue River Valley, WYO...
