A friend of mine swears by the Denali snowshoes, either of these models (both links are clickable)
This is what the Blurb says
MSR introduces a sleek, new snowshoe this season, the Denali Evo. This premier snowshoe has the same great traction and modular design as the Denali Classic, but with a beefed-up deck, binding, and crampon for improved performance and usability. Steel traction blades, crampons, and molded braking bars in the deck yield UNMATCHED traction, not to mention peace of mind on steep, death-ice pitches. A new stand-up binding by MSR makes the Denali Evo super easy to get in and out, and still folds down for easy packing and storage. The Evo deck with a tapered tip and tail allows you to walk with a more natural gait so you’re not doing the “Franken-stride”. A crampon extension plate eliminates heel drift while the 4-strap binding locks your foot in for a great fit and secure attachment to the snowshoe.
It is important to have a good way to strap them to your rucksack for the descent so that don’t pendulum around. The floatation tails are a good idea for powder days if you don’t have any friendly skiers to break trail.
