Well-priced snowshoes for winter walking on the white stuff
Unless they have been abducted by aliens for more than half a century, Coloradans all know Sniagrab (“bargains” spelled backwards) is the first harbinger of winer. Gart Brothers, a pioneering Denver sporting goods retailer, launched this Labor Day weekend sale 57 years ago as a ski sale. It is now a mega-sale not just for ski gear, apparel and accessories, but also for snowboarding stuff and snowshoes as well.
The offerings are not enormous, but the price is right on the less expensive of the two on-sale models for Nordic Walkers who want to see if the like snowshoeing, for occasional snowshoers or just to have an extra pair in the car or for winter visitors. The more expensive is a performance shoe. PowdeRidge Path snowshoes are $39.95, a 60 percent savings off the original $99.99 price and are available at all seven Sniagrab locations. Tubbs Flex TRK at $89.99 is 40 percent off the original $149.95 price. It is available only at the Sportscastle on Broadway and 11th Avenue, Denver. Alpine Design adjustable trekking poles including snow baskets are just $19.95 (originally $39.99).
