Vintage "KABIR KOUBA" ALASKAN Snowshoes
These are very good looking & long vintage "Alaskan" snowshoes from the Huron-Wendat reserve in Quebec, Canada. Similar to a large Ojibwa snowshoe in general shape and function, the Alaskan's upturned toe, large surface area, and sleek profile excel at covering open trail distances through any depth of snow. These are excellent snowshoe for large people, for carrying large packs, and for those who prefer the classic frontiersman style. At some point in time the toe bindings were replaced and the heel straps are made of cotton. If you are looking for a fine pair of antique snowshoes to use in the snow or enhance your chalet decoration, these are for you!
The Park of the Kabir Kouba Cliff and Waterfall is a public park in Québec crossed by the Saint-Charles River. The rapids and falls of this section of the river are called Kabir Kouba the «river of a thousand bends» in the Montagnais language.
