A friend of mine is in her early 20's, a long distance runner and interested in getting into snowshoeing, especially for light weight hiking. I would guess that she is around 5' and in full winter clothing still does not break 100 pounds. Anyone have a suggestion on the snowshoe that would be best for her? She is from the NE US

MSR Denalis would work just fine. They are small to start off with.
Also, The Atlas line for ladies is good-and they make a 22" version for smaller ladies.
Any shoe of 22" would work well for her weight :-)
