Maine Guide Snowshoes

Over the weekend, I attended the Fall Festival at Sunday River. During my visit, I stumbled upon a Maine Guide and his wife (Bob and Andrea Howe) from Pine Grove Lodge putting on a display of snowshoe building.

While I rarely promote a particular product, I was so impressed with the quality and durability of this snowshoe and Bob and Andreas passion for constructing these high quality shoes, I had to mention it on the blog.

What is fascinating to note, is that you can order the snowshoes in a variety of colors (see photos) as they are constructed not of traditional rawhide but also rope similar to 550 parachord. Check out their website for more information on the interesting option. 

Kit Snowshoe
Bob and Andrea sell completed shoes in a HUGE variety of styles and configuration and also a “kit” that includes all of the materials and instructions so you can build your own snowshoes. While the last thing in the world I need is yet another long and involved project, the idea of whiling away the cold winter evenings, in the workshop building my own snowshoes is actually quite intoxicating. FYI, long story short the “kit” is on my Christmas list.

If you are I the market for a set of awesome snowshoes please take a look at MAINE GUIDE SNOWSHOES:


  1. Those are nice. I have been wanting a pair for late winter trekking.

    What kind of a deal can I get if I advertise them on my blog.

  2. Rick, It might be worth asking! Now why didn't I think of that! DUH! :)


Thanks for posting a comment. Your thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated!
