Tubbs® was originally founded by Walter Tubbs in Norway, Maine, in 1906 as a manufacturer of ash snowshoes, skis, sleds, and furniture. In the 1940s the company moved to Vermont and was manufacturing close to 100,000 pairs of wooden snowshoes per year, many of which were used by Allied troops in World War II.

By the 1980s, snowshoe recreation seemed to be in a slump and Tubbs was manufacturing only about 1,200 pairs of wooden snowshoes per year. In 1989, however, after introducing the metal snowshoe, sales increased to about 5,000 pairs that year.  Change came slowly but growth has been consistent, thanks in part, to companies like Tubbs who helped increase the awareness and enjoyment of the sport. From the half million US snowshoe enthusiasts in the mid-90s, the sport is now enjoyed by as many as 5 million people, according to some estimates.

Innovation such as ArcTec Plus® decking material, 3D Fit binding platform, and their patented Control Wings® has helped Tubbs virtually dominate the snowshoe market.

For your next backcountry, racing, fitness, or recreational snowshoe adventure, Tubbs has the snowshoe for mom, dad, and even junior.
