Was looking at these snowshoes for a while, and was curious if
Was looking at these snowshoes for a while, and was curious if the bindings on this specific set were compatible with a snowboard boot (in this case, a Men's 10). I'm looking at the 930, as I weigh 165, so would be in the 100-200 range with up to a 35lb pack. Don't plan on over-nighting, so I think it's the right size.
I have a pair of traditional insulated boots I would use for day hikes, but was wondering If I did end up hiking and bringing the snowboard along for the descents, if I would be able to use the snowboard boots without a big hassle (read: lugging around another pair of boots and changing on the mountain).
Thanks in advance, -MP
