Anthony Kunkel’s Northern Lites Snowshoes

How winter warriors do it

Adventure Pro

Anthony Kunkel is no stranger to cold weather running. The up-and-coming athlete is racking up first place wins all over the West, winters included. A little snow doesn’t slow him down.

We got a chance to talk to Kunkel about his Northern Lites racing model snowshoes and how he prefers to keep it simple, by simply bolting his running shoes directly to them.

“They’re about the lightest thing on the market,” says Kunkel. “I’m totally impressed with them. You’re totally mounted and stable on there.”

At the 2017 Winter Warrior Snowshoe Race we saw what he was talking about.
