After years of silent communion with Nature and seasonal moments of adrenaline-fueled exhilaration, our approach to the mountains changed. We opened ourselves to the smallest inspirations and creative impulses, and thus the Snowfoot was born.
We live on the slopes of the indomitable Monte Rosa: the largest 4,000m massif in Europe. The valleys which host us have been home to traditional craftsmen and innovative builders for centuries.
The last thing we wanted to do was ‘build a snowshoe’. But after following the clues in our environment and studying our access needs that is exactly what happened, but with a radically innovative perspective.
The first Snowfoot prototypes were made with the sole purpose of climbing steep mountains in fresh snow. As we tinkered with and improved our ‘franken-shoes’, we realized that we were actually creating something incredibly versatile, powerful and unique. It slowly dawned on us that our product was useful for every activity that involved snow and walking.
Like the famous wheel, snowshoes have been ‘reinvented’ millions of times throughout history, redesigned each time to satisfy the conditions of local terrain and climate. We are honored to carry forward this honorable tradition by creating the first snowshoe dedicated specifically to alpine pursuits.
We invite you to join us on this journey. Snowfoot has changed our lives. We’re sure it will do the same for you…
