We Rent Snowshoes!

We are proud to be Whistler's best source for snowshoeing information and snowshoe rentals. Whether you want to get out for an afternoon or several days, we will equip you properly for Whistler's amazing snowshoe trails.

Perfect for Whistler, our snowshoes come in a variety of sizes to get you the perfect fit for any conditions. Our snowshoe kit includes snowshoes(with carrying case), telescoping poles and folding snow seat.  We proudly rent the best gear, at the best prices, and with the best service!  Our prices include free delivery & pickup anywhere in Whistler!

What type or size of footwear will work with snowshoes? Whatever you're most comfortable wearing should work just fine! Our snowshoes are equipped with a dual-ratchet binding system, as well as a fully adjustable heel strap. The lengths of the binding straps are proportional to the size of the snowshoes, so larger snowshoes are designed to accommodate larger footwear. This makes it very easy to use your snowshoes with virtually any style of footwear.

Why do we have so many different sizes? Each size of snowshoe is designed to support a specific weight range. The surface area of the snowshoe platform provides the flotation you need across a broad range of snow conditions. Selecting a size that is too small for you will mean that you’ll sink more deeply into the snow than you would in the right size snowshoe. As well, larger sizes are made with thicker tubing to handle the stresses of heavier weights.

The Bigfoot Elite Series offers a lightweight, high performance snowshoe. The combination of top quality materials and sleek ergonomic design improve stability and maneuverability while providing all day comfort you expect from a snowshoe. The tapered design permits a more natural stride under any winter condition allowing for longer hikes. The Hypalon decking provides energetic rebounding while the two extra Snow-Trac side crampons allow you to tackle a wide range of terrain.

A: We deliver anytime and anywhere in Whistler. In most cases we can drop off your gear to your hotel the night before you go so you can play with and pack your gear beforehand.

Q: Your gear is pretty high-tech, will we have trouble using it?

A: We include user guides to any tricky-to-use gear. For example, when you open our compact stove system you will see the instruction for use. If you would like a preview of our gear check out the Youtube links above for user reviews and get excited!
