Norway is rich in history of the manufacture of snowshoes.

Names such as “TUBBS” and “SNOCRAFT” are associated with Norway earning it the title “Snowshoe Capital of the World” for many, many years.

Sadly, snowshoes are no longer manufactured here.

A gentleman by the name of C.P. Nisbet has done extensive research on the history of snowshoes in Norway and may be contacted at
