Year after year, the Northern Lites Elite remains one of our more popular snowshoe models.  Ideal for beginners and professional alike!

It is a full-sized mountaineering and backpacking snowshoe with highly aggressive crampons.  The size and weight of the Elite provides for unmatched maneuverability in all conditions and terrain.  It is light enough to easily use in races yet rugged enough to handle even the 1,000 mile Iditarod!  At about 2-1/2 lbs. per pair, the Elite is by far the lightest 25” snowshoe on the market.  Your Elite Snowshoes come with either the traditional Northern Lites TruTrak binding system or the new Northern Lites Speed Binding when you need the ultimate convenience for getting your snowshoes on and off quickly.
