Atlas Snowshoes Junior Snowshoe:
The Atlas Junior Snowshoe remains one of our top choices for introducing kids to snow hikes, especially if you're looking for a durable design that can last through a few sibling hand-me-down cycles. These one-size snowshoes are great for getting over and around rolling winter hills and slick hardpack slopes, even if those obstacles are no further than a few yards from the backyard porch. You'll find nothing toy-like about the sturdy aluminum-framed snowshoe and two-piece toe and heel cleats. Some of the staff members here have used Atlas Junior Snowshoes for their kids and love the versatile webbing shoe harness because once it's sized and attached, there's no need to stop for perpetual adjustments throughout a winter hike or casual neighborhood walk. The Junior Snowshoe has an 18-inch length that won't hinder small gaits while handling weights up to 80 lbs. Because kids tend to use their snowshoes to venture into spaces where the snow isn't hardpack, stick to the weight guidelines for exceptional floatation results.
