To coincide with the debut of its new insulated collection, Vasque is excited to announce sponsorship of the 2012 - 2013 U.S. National Snowshoe Team. Snowy weather calls for high quality footwear and the new Vasque insulated collection offers durability, technical features, and comfort to outdoors enthusiasts who enjoy playing outside in the heart of winter.

The U.S. National Snowshoe Team is comprised of 16 of the finest winter endurance athletes from all over the United States. The states represented on the 2012 - 2013 National Team include: Colorado, Nevada, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Washington, and Arizona. The team is composed of six junior athletes ages 19 and under and 10 senior athletes 20+ years of age.

“The U.S. National Snowshoe Team is outside training and competing when Mother Nature is giving us her winter worst,” states Chris Miller, National Sales Director, Vasque Footwear. “That’s why Vasque is more than happy to supply the team with boots from our new insulated collection, so their feet can be warm and comfortable and they are able to perform at their best.”

The Vasque insulated Snow Junkie and Snowblime utilize 200 grams of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Ultra, a premium insulator used in top quality outerwear, and UltraDry™, a Vasque proprietary waterproof membrane. Engineered and built to withstand the harshest winter weather conditions, Vasque’s insulated collection is the perfect fit for these endurance athletes.

“We are very pleased to have an outstanding footwear company such as Vasque come on board to support our team this season,” says National Team Director Mark Elmore.

Elmore also serves as the USSSA’s Sports Director and explains that team members are expected to compete in many important events this coming season. In 2013, they will compete in the La Ciaspolada Snowshoe Race in Italy which will also be serving as the 2013 World Snowshoe Championships, the Teva Winter Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado, the Jeremy Wright North American Snowshoe Championships at Beaver Creek Resort in Avon, Colorado, the GV Snowshoe Challenge in Quebec City, Quebec Canada, and the U.S. National Snowshoe Championships in Bend, OR.
