If you find it hard going walking in soft snow with your snowboard or skis to get to those well hidden runs, Small Foot snowshoes might be the solution. The Small Foot snowshoes created by Bulgarian company Any Exit have been specifically designed with backcountry snowboarders in mind.
When deflated the two snow shoes fit into a small bag together with a pump for inflating. Once inflated a set of straps on the snow shoes allows them to be securely attached to your boots. They might not provide as much area a set of full size snowshoes but for portability they look like they fit the job.
