These are long shoes. Compare these to a similar picture I posted above with my old bear paw shoes. The first thing I noticed was the long tails but after a couple hundred yards they felt fine. The airstrip proper was kind of crusted on top from a few days of rare sun. I wanted powder and found it off the strip in the trees.
These shoes offer great flotation in the soft stuff. And I really like the bindings - the best I've used on a traditional shoe. As Gunny said they don't twist on the shoe when you want to make a turn and they're very quick to put on or off.
Lots of snow up there. My estimate is about 15 feet. Here's a look at the cabin at the west end.
