Increased Floatation Allows Snowshoers to Tackle the Backcountry with Pack in Tow

SEATTLE, Wash. - Tubbs Snowshoes, a global leader in snowshoes and snowshoe outreach, expands the award-winning FLEXâ„¢ Series with the addition of the new FLEX ALP XL for tackling the backcountry with heavier loads.
