Our ski season seemed to be getting off to a slow start. We had a warm October and November. We started wondering if we put our boats away too soon. Our new Salomon skis and boots came in and we were wondering if we were ever going to see snow. Then it came, only to melt away and break our hearts once again. However, in the past couple of days the snows have come again and all indications are that it is going to continue to come down and our temps are going to continue to go down.
So you may ask, what can Stone Harbor do for you this winter. Let’s start by mentioning that we have all the base layers and ski clothing you will ever need. But you already knew that. Our clothes and accessories selection is as good as any you will find anywhere. And remember that even if you are not coming to see us soon, you can buy from our on-line store. Don’t see what you want? Give us a call. There is a good chance we can help you from our store stock.
If you are coming to town, remember we have a great selection of rental skis and snowshoes. You can reserve the equipment by going to our web site. We have skis for the groomed trails and a limited number of skis for back country. You have your own skis? We have a great selection of waxes, scrapers, irons and other accessories.
You don’t know how to get to a great ski trail? We have developed a Cook County map that shows all the ski areas, snowshoe and snowmobile trails. It even show the dog-friendly trails in case you want to try some skijoring. And we have those harnesses for rent also.
I almost forgot (well, maybe not)– we have a good selection of new ski packages for sale. Skis and boots by Salomon and Madshus. Back country skis by Altai and Sporten that are a combination ski and snowshoes. And speaking of snowshoes, we have MSR and Crescent Moon equipment for sale also.
So come on in and see us. We have you covered for your next winter adventure.
