    I just bought the MSR Lightning Ascent with the tail extensions. Fortunately, we just received a 12-15" snowfall a few days afterwards. We have been out in this fresh snow a few times already. The snowshoes are working really well. The heal lift bar is incredible. We hit a steep local ascent. That climb gets you 400 feet of gain in a half mile with a few steeper sections. It was amazing how easyi it was. I'm a bigger guy, and the bars were more than robust enough to support my >200 pound weight. The snowshoes themselves made the climbs and descents really manageable. I often thought I'd have to traverse something, but no! My "traction action" was way better than normal hiking boots or shoes! I can't wait to hit some of the ADK High Peaks in the winter! #46ers Woo Hoo!
