We haven’t seen much snow yet this winter, but it’s undoubtedly coming and when it does, that means one thing: snowshoe season! If you’d like to get a pair of your own snowshoes for winter running and our Super Frosty Loomis snowshoe race on February 12th, FLRC is organizing a group purchase of our favorite Dion racing snowshoes at a 20% discount.
If you’ve never tried snowshoe running, you basically strap your running shoes into small, light snowshoes that let you run snow- and ice-covered trails with abandon—it’s like turning your feet into huge paws with claws. We had a snowshoe clinic last winter that was huge fun (see my video), and I hope we can do that again this year.
Here’s the deal. As a group, we need to buy at least 12 pairs of Dion snowshoes to qualify for the discount. The recommended models from Loomis race directors @Dave_K and @esambo (the 121 or maybe 120 frames, with either QuickFit or SecureFit bindings and ice cleats) cost between $245 and $280, so you’d save about $50 through the group purchase.
We have informal commitments for about 6-7 pairs now, and if you would like to order a pair, reply here so I can add you to the list. Once we hit the 12-pair minimum, I’ll open an ordering page on Webscorer where you can pick the pair you want and pay via a credit card. Once everyone has ordered, we’ll place the group order with Dion, receive the snowshoes (hopefully before Loomis, but there’s no telling), and either have a distribution snowshoe run (snow permitting) or let you pick them up some other way.
So: Do you want to join the group purchase for Dion racing snowshoes? Reply here!
