Winter Rentals

For all of you crazy people…

Stone-Harbor-Back-Country-SkisWhile philosophers may wax poetic on the quiet solitude of winter adventures, they neglect to tell you the reason for that solitude: it’s cold. We’re talking bone-chilling, eye-tearing, expletive-inducing cold. It’s the kind of cold that attracts crazy people–our kind of crazy people. The kind of people who know there is no bad weather, just bad gear.

We can’t do anything about the weather, but we can definitely help with the gear. Like Snowtrekker tents, the tents that laugh at Old Man Winter and beg for more snow. And Clam ice fishing shelters to create a portable winter oasis. And don’t forget about your transportation to that secret hiding place we call the northern woods: we have snowshoes from Crescent Moon and MSR Evo and backcountry skis from Altai. And of course we have skijoring kits. Don’t ask why, just come in and we’ll tell you all about them.

Lest you think we are leaving you out in the cold, we have Wintergreen outerwear to keep you toasty warm during your winter adventures. And Therm-a-rest cots and Big Agnes sleeping bags to cover your bases at night.

Once you have the right gear, you see winter for what it really is: a sparkling playground with an exclusive membership–no wussies allowed. Ha! If only those wussies knew how easy it is to have fun.

  • Wintergreen Shell Pants :: $10 per day

“It wasn’t just stylish–it was shockingly functional. That is: warm. This isn’t surprising. Wintergreen Northern Wear isn’t some Filson-come-lately–it’s the Gold Standard for cold-weather coats.” –Jesse Kornbluth,

Cross-Country Ski Gear

  • Rossignol Evo Tour Skis :: $25 per day
  • Rossignol X5 Ski Boots :: $15 per day
  • One Way Diamond 600 Poles :: $10 per day
  • Touring Ski Package (skis, boots & poles) :: $40 per day

We stock waxless skis and make sure they are well-maintained, so all you have to worry about is which trail to hit first.

Backcountry Ski Gear

  • Altai Hok Skis :: $40 per day
  • Spartan Freewalk Skis :: $40 per day
  • One Way Diamond 600 Poles :: $10 per day

We’re not sure how they do it, but both the Sporten and Hok skis are lightweight and still rugged. They call them part skis and part snowshoes; we call them a great way to see the north woods.

Snowshoe Gear

  • Crescent Moon Gold Series Snowshoes :: $20 per day
  • MSR Evo Snowshoes :: $15 per day
  • One Way Diamond 600 Poles :: $10 per day

Snowshoeing is an awesome winter workout! The Crescent Moon Gold Series snowshoes are the best backcountry snowshoes for all conditions. You can thank the modified tear drop shaped frame, which offers the perfect combination of maneuverability and enough surface area for excellent float.

The Evo snowshoes offer great traction and flexibility. They come equipped with modular flotation tails that give you the maneuverability of a smaller shoe in packed conditions with optional tails for powder or heavy load conditions.

Big Agnes is a little further away, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, but hey, they still have cold weather cred.
