See the backcountry this winter with our snowshoe rentals program and thank us afterwards. Hiking your favorite trail in the winter is an incredible way to see nature and renting some of the best snowshoes available from Mountain Side makes it even better.
Our adult snowshoes are made right here in Colorado by Crescent Moon Snowshoes and they are available in three sizes. Please contact us with any questions before you rent snowshoes. Learn more about the different sizes below.
The Gold 10 Backcountry Snowshoe model accommodates foot sizes 10 to 15.
This snow shoe is built for unending exploration, where most trails end and the fun begins. Bigger bindings, more traction, more surface area equals more adventure. Built to handle large volume boots like snowboard or hard-shell tele boots and every other kind of cold weather boot. A brilliant set of traversing claws and stainless-steel teeth located at the ball, heel, and most uniquely, the climbing toe claw, give you all traction you’ll ever need. The moderated tear drop shape of the Backcountry model makes the 32”x10” dimension feel more maneuverable than traditionally shaped 30” snowshoes and the bindings work in concert with the platform to make every step one of great importance and significance in the pursuit of happiness. What more can be said, but these are the finest backcountry snowshoes you’ll ever rent? We suggest you buy them.
The bindings on the Gold 9 series are special, fitting every kind of shoe up to size 10.5 with exceptional comfort and function.
You’ll feel the support of these showshoes in every direction of movement – whether it’s uphill, downhill, traversing terrain, walking, or even running. The bindings are incredibly easy and fast to get into, and out of, but best when they’re on. They hold your foot like a podiatrist in love, and instead of nylon webbing, Crescent Moon uses hypalon for strapping. That means it won’t come loose, won’t freeze, and won’t come off your foot in the middle of a steep, snowy climb.For durability, performance, comfort and reliability, the Gold 9 Trail snow shoe is a great choice for any enthusiast, man or woman. Confidence in your equipment makes you comfortable in every situation. And with gear this good, your boundaries are limitless.
The Gold 13 Trail is for women up to 165lbs and foot sizes less than 12. Ideal snowshoes for larger kids and teens as well.
Crescent Moon was the first snowshoe manufacturer to design a women’s specific model and series of shoes to accommodate the differences of a woman’s stride. Lightweight, easy to maneuver and feature a frame bent with a steep nose and tapered tail, these shoes have a unique teardrop shape to help you maintain your natural stride. The three stainless-steel crampons include a toe claw for climbing.
The binding system of these snowshoes is so well designed and functional its recognized as the “best” snowshoe on the market by most outside magazines. That’s one small step for women, one giant snowshoe leap for women-kind.
