AbstractA snowshoe is provided with a transverse steel cable that engages the opposite longitudinal side members of its frame structure. A harness secured to this cable consists of two jaw members which are pivotally connected to one another at one end thereof and cooperate to clamp the edge of the front sole portion of a user's boot. A rubber strap is attached at its opposite ends to one of the jaw members for further securing the boot to the harness. The decking of the snowshoe has an opening to allow the pivotal movement of the front portion of the boot during use. The jaw members have finger-engaging portions to facilitate the mounting and dismounting of a boot to and from the harness.
