Flexible snowshoes are a great bet in steep, challenging terrain - i.e. mountains, the only place snow falls deep in California. And MSR's Revo Explore shoes give you the most bang for the buck, featuring:
> Rugged ExoTract™ deck with aggressive perimeter teeth for confidence in challenging conditions
> New HyperLink™ bindings with redesigned ratchets and plush EVA foam for secure, comfortable hold on your boots
> Redesigned binding ratchets make these easy on & off!
> Ergo Televators reduce fatigue & increase traction on the steeps, engage with a flick of a pole grip
> Womens size with slimmed-up profile provides more agility with women's narrower stride
> Optional Revo Modular Flotation tails provide extra support for larger hikers or softer, deeper snow
When sizing snowshoes, don't go by the user's "naked" weight - instead, consider the total weight you're asking these snowshoes to carry: the person with all winter clothing, boots, poles, backpack, water, food, etc. And consider snow conditions - if you hike often in deep powder snow, consider a larger size; if you hike mostly on firmer snow, consider a smaller size. Of course, with MSR snowshoes you can add optional "tails" to extend the shoes an additional five inches to support a larger load or venture into softer snow!
