Montpelier, VT October 24, 2009 ORS Snowshoes Direct announced today that they will be bringing award winning, Colorado made "Crescent Moon Snowshoes" to their winter snowshoe line-up. ORS Snowshoes Direct will carry snowshoes in the Crescent Moon Gold Series (voted Backpacker magazine's Fall/Winter 2009 "best binding"), featuring models for both the "go anywhere / all-terrain snowshoe" and "racing- running snowshoe" category.

"We wanted to round off our snowshoe offering with some innovative, comfortable and easy-to-use snowshoes to satisfy both our serious snowshoe racers as well as provide an option for our all-terrain users.", says David Kinsley, Retail Marketing Manager for ORS Snowshoes Direct. "The clincher with Crescent Moon Snowshoes was the fact that these snowshoes are not only made in the USA, but Crescent Moon strives to operate as greenly as possible using only wind powered electricity in their manufacturing facility and recycling all their left over materials. The snowshoes feel good on our customers feet and our customers can also feel good about supporting a company that cares about the environment."
