My snowshoes are awesome! I purchased a pair for myself and a pair for one of my kids (for the one I could convince to come with me!)
I ended up using them on a number of occasions over the winter. My whole family even went out (borrowed a couple of other pairs)...check out our video of our family day shoeshoe on our face book page (Islandsunrise cottages, fishing & hunting outfitters)
Next year we will be making additional purchases!
My wife and I have been wanting to try snowshoeing for a couple of years now, we have often thought about making our way to the Winter Sports Complex, located in N. Muskegon, Michigan, at least to "try before we buy", this never happened.
About a month ago, we decided to just go for it, without ever trying snowshoeing first. Our fist time out was on our wooded lake property, with about one foot of snow. We easily strapped on our snoeshoes and headed in to the woods, and down to the lake. A very good 1st experience! The next time out, we headed to the beach on Lake Michigan! Not sure why, but we had the beach to ourselves! LOL! What a difference to see the beach frozen and the "icebergs" the lake was forming instead of seeing boats and sunbathers!
We have had a pleasant experience with our BigFoot Snowshoes, from ordering to hiking and now have an activity to look forward to during the loooooonnnng Michigan winters! Thanks Bigfoot!

Could not wait to use our Big Foot snowshoes since the big storm of Friday, February 8, 2013. On Sunday, February, 10, 2013 which was a beautiful bright sunny day we went over to Bronte Park in Oakville, Ontario to use their ski trails. What a work out! We actually saw 4 deer running through the bush. What a sight!!
We are new to snowshoeing, and loved the step by step guidance we received on the Bigfoot website. We love the snowshoes! They are easy to use, & the poles are great. Thank you for a great shopping experience.
Hello, recently i purchased a pair of bigfoot snowshoes for my 7 year old son. I have owned and extensively used bigfoot snowshoes since 2009. They are an excellent snowshoe for a reasonable price. Our snowshoe's are used for checking our snare-lines. Conditions are harsh with 40 plus centimeters for 3 to 4 months. The shoes have stood up to the thickest spruce and tag alder thickets that we could walk through. We have never experienced damage or bent crampon's, as they are used when snow levels are sufficient. Furthermore, the harness system allows children to get them on and off easily. For the price, these are built with very good quality and workmanship. I highly endorse your product.
My snowshoes arrived while I was attending my son's wedding in Hawaii. I was excited to learn that they had arrived and that I would be able to snowshoe as soon as I got home. I went from kayaking the Wailua River in Kauai, Hawaii to snowshoeing in Revelstoke all in the same week! Doesn't get any better than that!
We have had our snowshoes a month now. Gone out 6 times and have been really happy with them. We are novice at this and find the shoes work great for what we want. We have not had any problems as reported from others. No damaged or bent ice clets. Mine you, we use the shoes on snow and not pavement, gravel or rocks. We got the package on Boxing day sale for 50% off and find the value totally worth it. Very happy and please and have recommended the shoes to others.
After a prediction of a green Christmas I was so happy that after a great Christmas dinner we were able head out with our new snowshoes all except one pair were bought at Bigfoot! Great service too!
We got such a great deal on our snowshoes. They have almost paid for themselves already and we've only gone snowshoeing twice. I love hiking and when I am snowshoeing I feel like I am hiking in the snow. Thanks for the great service.
After a big snowfall this past winter, I decided to get my mom a pair of snowshoes for her birthday to make it easier for her to walk the dogs. I was immediately impressed with the Big Foot website and how easy it was to find great products when I previously knew nothing about snowshoes. I was then greatly impressed with their response and expertise when my shoes were lost in the mail. The shoes work great, were easy to get on and get used to and my mom says it’s the best gift she's ever gotten. I highly recommend Big Foot Snowshoes to anyone looking for the best product and service for their money.
After looking around for snowshoes in downtown Toronto, I discovered there were slim pickings unless you wanted to spend hundreds of $. We were not going to Nepal but were going for a weekend in the beautiful Bruce National Park, camping in one of their new Yurts. I stumbled upon Bigfoot, they had good reviews and a special of free poles, bags and shipping if you buy 2. I did and we are thrilled with them..the green ones. They are light and easy to put on and walk in. No problem going up or down hills. Would (and have) definitely recommend them.
We purchased 6 pairs of Bigfoot Adventure series snowshoes to have at our house when friends and family come over. They are perfect for stomping around our property and on the local trails. Easy to use and lightweight, we can't wait for another snowy winter like we had this year!
Hi, I wanted to give you some feedback on the snowshoes I just bought from you. They are fantastic! My girlfriend and I went for a little hike in my A30's, her in her A22's, out here in Banff. We took the gondola and a chairlift up in Sunshine Ski Resort and then hiked out to one of the back country ridges.
As we passed the people hiking in snowboard boots and blazed our own trail, the Bigfoots had already payed for themselves!
The view from the top was pretty good even though the pictures I am attaching pick up a lot of the snow and cloud. It was blowing pretty hard. We got some great powder turns in on the way back down because we packed our boards. Only got in three runs that day, but they were all pretty spectacular coupled with the great and far easier hikes! Oh and my snowboard boots fit great and the bag is really convenient. Already spreading the good word on the trails.
Hello, I recently purchased the Bigfoot Snowshoes and am very impressed with them. I have never snowshoed before so I found them easy to maneuver, lightweight and was amazed that the snow did not stick to them. I highly recommend using the poles and the carrying bag makes traveling easy. What a wonderful activity to do on a winters day.
Hi Bigfoot, the snowshoes are fantastic. Its alot easier than I anticipated. Going thru deep snow was a breeze. The poles are a neccessity in my view. I lost the round tip at the end of one pole. I must not of tightened it enough. Anyway we are throughly enjoying them!
Hi Bigfoot snowshoes,
I cannot believe how much we are enjoying our snowshoes! We have gone for a hike every weekend since before Christmas, I can't even guess how many kilometers we've put on and our snowshoes still look brand new. They are very well constructed; the bindings are awesome, we have yet to have any trouble with them coming loose, even on the children's boots. These are by far the best purchase for a winter activity we have ever made.
We recommend you guys to everyone we meet.
I recently ordered 20 pairs of snowshoes for my alternative learning class and want to thank you very much for your highly efficient customer service. I ordered the snowshoes on a Friday and we were using them by Monday afternoon! I had the opportunity to make two separate phone calls and it was very refreshing to have a human being answer the phone and take care of our needs immediately. My class of students now have a new love for outdoor activities in the snow. They have found the snowshoes fun and easy to use and have already started bringing in extra clothes to have at school for the days they come in wet from "playing" with the snowshoes.
Thank you for running such a customer friendly business. We will most definitely recommend you at any opportunity we have.
My first experience with Bigfoot snowshoes was arranged by our local guide on an afternoon trip to the woods. Even though I had never used snowshoes before, the walking felt natural from the first steps; the shoes were easy to use, lightweight and felt firm. After the trip I decided to order my own set of snowshoes, a 27" pair. After much usage, I can still say that waking in snow is much easier and more enjoyable than before. Even today I can go for a walk just for the fun of it, for a good exercise and a chance to enjoy nature. Even when I managed to break the backstrap lock (which I take full responsibility for) I got a fast, friendly, same-day email response from Bigfoot Snowshoes and they promised to send me the parts with no problem.
I'm sorry, I know this sounds like a TV ad, but it's the truth.
We've really been enoying our Bigfoot Snowshoes and I don't mind sharing some pics if you want to use them for your website. A couple days ago my family and I went out on Burns Lake, BC and these are some pics from then. In the group photo - 3 of the 5 pictured are wearing Bigfoot snowshoes.
We were really impressed with how well they worked when we got to the middle of the lake and it was softer than we expected :)
Are you a business looking to increase your product lineup?
Bigfoot Snowshoes might be what you're looking for! Here's some kind words from a few of our existing dealers.
" Bigfoot Snowshoes have been a hit in our store since day one. Our first year (2008-09) sales of Bigfoot went very well. We found the price point on the Adventure Series very attractive to recreational users and those with a budget in mind. It gives them a chance to get into the sport without a large financial commitment while still getting a quality product. The Powder Pro snowshoes give the beginner something to aspire to, or offers those who are willing to spend a little more, a higher performance option. My only regret was not ordering more snowshoes early in the season as we sold out faster than expected before Christmas. We won't make that mistake this year. Bigfoot has always been helpful and available to field our questions and serve our needs. We are excited about year 2 with the introduction of kids snowshoes (19 in) and the possibility of other snowshoe related products from Bigfoot. "

" I just wanted to thank you for your excellent Bigfoot snowshoes. We were new in the snowshoe business this past winter and after discussing it with you we went out on a limb and bought some.They started selling at an amazing rate. Our staff quickly gained confidence and our customers loved them. We sold more than 3 times the number of Bigfoots this past winter than what we thought a 'Good' sales season would do. Thanks again!
