Misc. Gear

*Note: it is better to own most of the safety gear rather than rent. The history of these rental items is impossible to know and the integrity impossible to test. Transceivers often need new batteries, test yours before going out. Crampons can break, ours are intended for snow travel only, not for use on ice. Rental skins are cut to fit a variety of different skis and therefore do not provide the best traction for uphill travel. We have this rental gear if you need it, but also sell these items in the shop new.

Request Gear

 

Please fill out the form to receive advice on availability. It is our intention to never run out of any rental gear, except perhaps holiday saturdays. Filling this form out alerts us to look at our stock, but we don’t put gear aside. There is no way to know which boots you will fit, and furthermore skis and binding comaptability is hard to forcast without knowing your boot.  We work fast and will get you into the right gear for your adventure.  We will get back to you with advice and availability!
