The 10 Best Snowshoeing Poles
This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Snowshoeing poles help you keep your balance when on the trails and make crossing slopes and navigating tricky terrain easier. They also reduce the impact on your knees, making the entire experience more pleasant. They are essentially the same thing as trekking poles, except for having a larger basket. Since this is often an interchangeable piece, many are just as suitable for summer use. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

We wanted to include models that are just as suitable for summer use as winter so you get the most for you money, like the Foxelli Carbon Fiber, Vive Ultralight, and Hiker Hunger Tungsten-Tipped. To meet the needs of those preferential to aluminum models, we included the Life In Motion 7075, PaceMaker Stix Expedition, and Black Diamond Expedition 3. Of course there are also hikers preferential to carbon fiber models because of how lightweight they are, so you'll find many of them on the list as well.
