Winter Rentals


Are you ready for some crazy fun?

While 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. We have snowshoes from MSR; backcountry skis from Altai; cross-country skis from Salomon; and toboggans from Black River Sleds. And don’t forget about your four-legged friend–ask us about skijoring kits.

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 stay warm at night with Snowtrekker tents, the tents that laugh at Old Man Winter and beg for more snow. Add a wood-burning stove, sleeping bag and cot for extra comfort.

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.

Backcountry Skis
  • Altai Hok Skis :: $45 per day
  • Salomon Escape 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.

Cross-Country Skis
  • Salomon Escape 5 Grip Skis :: $30 per day
  • Salomon Escape Plus Ski Boots :: $20 per day
  • Salomon Escape Poles :: $10 per day
  • Touring Ski Package (skis, boots & poles) :: $45 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.

Skijoring Kits
  • Kondos Outdoors Skijoring Kit :: $10 per day

Share the northern trails with your best friend! The folks at Kondos Outdoors in Ely have put everything you need into this kit, except for the harness. The towline includes with an inline shock absorber, waist best, lines for one or two dogs, along with a neckline and a panic snap.

  • MSR Evo Snowshoes :: $25 per day
  • Salomon Escape Poles :: $10 per day

Snowshoeing is an awesome winter workout 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.

We offer winter camping gear from people who know a thing or two about winter. Snowtrekker tents come from Solon Springs, Wisconsin and Black River Sleds call Foxboro, Wisconsin their home. Big Agnes is a little further away, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, but hey, they still have cold weather cred.

“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,
