What snowshoes do others here use for winter hiking and how do you like them? Using mine on Monday, I came to realize that they are a little long(36 in.) for trails where you have to switch directions side to side and between objects on some trails and they don't have good traction when coming downhill. They are not really geared towards being used for hiking even though they do work pretty good going uphill.
