I use an old MSR which is similar to the Evo Ascents. It works well on dry powder as long as it's flat land. Heading up a steep incline, the snowshoes lose traction because the dry snow is not cohesive enough.
I see the same issue; MSR snowshoes are my main ones for snowshoeing as most of the ground I cross is of harder, wetter snow.
For interior, deep powdery snow in low temperatures...........large atlas snowshoes are great for flotation on the light fluffy stuff.
Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............
