The first Tubbs snowshoes saw the light of day in the US in 1906, not far from Norway in Maine. At the time, Walter F. Tubbs was building snowshoes made of white ash wood. In 1958, the company moved to the Vermont mountains and its Green Mountain Bear Paw made its big debut on the market. We would then have to wait until 1990 to see Tubbs launch the first aluminum snowshoes, a true revolution at the time. Innovation has always been a watchword for Tubbs and in 1998, the company was also the first to create models specifically designed for women and kids. Nowadays, the brand belongs to K2, one of the world leader on the winter sports market. Since 2014, quite a few Tubbs snowshoes models are equipped with the twist-to-tighten Boa adjustment system, a quick and simple system inspired by snowboard boots.
