Deep, steep, epic, and effortless.
Float through pow and dig into steeps on the Tubbs Women's Mountaineer Snowshoe, an all-terrain beast. It may be the carbon and steel Anaconda toe and Python heel crampons or 19-degree heel lift that make for animal ascents, but it's the impact-eating upturned tail, shock-absorbing articulation, and lightweight women-specific fit that keep you happy on long-haul adventures.
- Women-specific version is lighter, tapered, and scaled for women's sizes 5-11
- Pro-Step frame features a continuous bend with longer, lower rise for optimal flotation, lower nose that packs easily, and impact-reducing upturned tail
- R2 Revolution Response articulation absorbs shock with lateral flex and responsiveness; full-step rotation sheds snow for unhindered crampon bite
- Women's-specific, asymmetric ActiveFit binding features control wings that center the heel and padded midfoot that gives a custom fit without pressure points
- Razor-sharp Anaconda toe crampon boasts eight constant-contact carbon and steel teeth; Python heel crampon delivers downhill braking
- SoftTec decking is durable, lightweight for optimal float, smooth, and soft
- ActiveLift 19-degree binding powers up steep terrain with a strain- and fatigue-reducing heel lift that easily pulls up or folds down

- Q & A
Bought for my daughter
My adult daughter wanted to keep up on the trails with her dad, so I bought her a pair of tubbs mountaineer 25 snowshoes. I love my pair, and after a 10 mile mountain climb my daughter stated that they are the best pair of snowshoes she has ever used. She's sold on them just like her old man. They fit a large variety of shoe/boots and easy on/off. Snow doesn't stick to them and weigh you down and very easy to travel at a fast past over ice and deep drifts.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
My buddy has 25" Tubbs Mountaineers, she and I went snowshoeing together this weekend and I wanted to share a few things.
First and foremost, she loves her Tubbs Mountaineers, they are her second pair of snowshoes, her dog, Zora, gnawed the harness off of her previous pair of Tubbs. Why Zora? Why?
In fact, she likes her Tubbs so much that she expressed surprise that everyone else in our group was rocking Atlas brand 'shoes.
We compared ours side by side - my supposedly 27" Atlas Elektra 10's look to be the same length as her 25" Mountaineers. Go figure. We didn't whip out yard sticks to check but you'd think we'd be able to eyeball a 2-inch difference. [Laugh Track] There's a humor goldmine there that I'm not touching with a 27" pole, or 25" as the case may be.
I like the harness setup on the Mountaineers, it looks like it cradles the foot nicely and my pal got into and out of her 'shoes quickly.
She did complain that the heel strap gives her trouble on occasion; sometimes her snowshoes are difficult to escape. Better than the alternative though, no one wants to throw a shoe.
Some in our group had trouble with the uphill sections. I mean, we all huffed and puffed and agreed that we shouldn't have had a beer (or two) before taking off but there was obviously a marked difference in crampon quality too.
The Mountaineers have an ANGRY-looking crampon, it looks really cool and it was obviously effective.
I really don't need to replace my snowshoes, they perform well, they're comfortable, and they're nowhere near worn out. However, if the Kimber dog ever went all tazmanian devil on them, I'd be sorely tempted to go with a pair of 30" Tubbs Mountaineers.
Great for mountaineering & backcountry
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I got these to use before committing to a splitboard, and I love them. They are super light, pack down really well, and have EXCELLENT grip on all sorts of sketchy snow situations.
I used mine hiking up volcanoes all over Chile this past winter, and from scree scrambling to hardpack to ice to deep pow to corn snow and everything in between, these snowshoes always pull through.
I especially like the heel crampon feature, which has more of a true crampon feature than most other snowshoes, which have a serrated "blade." Also cool is the heel riser for ascending anything vertical.
Finally, these snowshoes are awesome since they fit my snowboard boots comfortably--and the quick-adjust makes for easier "transitions" when getting in and out of them.
