" You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place - Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know." -Ren-aumal.

Tubbs is a good brand for snowshoes. www.tslsnowshoes.com is where you would find out about snow shoes in India. for more try emailing on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )

But be it Tubbs or any other brand, here are somethings to consider -

Recreational hiking snowshoes, the basic ones are perfect for amateurs and first-timers. Normally these are ideal on simple terrain that doesn’t involve steep ascent or descents.

try and avoid used snow shoes. In case you go for them, please check them thoroughly.

Snowshoes for aerobic/fitness are ideal for those who are runners and cross-trainers. These snow shoes have a sleek design and are usually tougher than other types available.

If you are more experienced with snowshoeing and are fond of powder, a very good option is to buy a pair of hiking/backpacking snowshoes. They are extremely tough and durable, with strong aluminum frame, durable material for flotation & bindings that support all types of boots.
Apart from Tubbs, try on ebay too.. all the best!
