There is a reason Norwegian don't snow shoe and that could well be it... They ski!

As for your Atlas, most modern snowshoes are design for packed trails and or alpine situation where most of the snow is windpack. There as been lots of demonstration that traditional snowshoes are way superior in real world situation where you would be in deep loose snow. They float better.
