Are you planning on doing a triathlon this year? Perhaps it is your first race and you don’t know if you want to invest in a new suit? Please call before coming in, so we can guarantee we have a wetsuit for you to try on. We always recommend trying them on first to make sure you get the proper fit.

Plan ahead, reserve your rental early before they are all spoken for. We offer weekly wetsuit rentals. The wetsuit is picked up on a Tuesday, and is due back at the store by 6pm on the following Monday.

  • We are offering Orca S2 fullsleeve suits for $50.
  • The $50 rental fee may be applied to a purchase of a wetsuit within the same season. Only one $50 credit will be applied, even if a suit is rented more than once.
  • We have a limited supply of wetsuits available, so we highly recommend reserving a suit to ensure availability for your event.
  • The Renter is responsible for repairing any damages to the wetsuit.

We offer Louis Garneau snowshoes and we have 3 size runs of Men's Ergotrail FX epic II, and 2 size runs of Women's Ergotrail FX Flora II shoes available for rent. The more you weigh, the more surfae area you need for optimal flotation in the snow. With the proper size, you'll still sink into the fresh powder, but not nearly as deep as you would in boots alone.

The Louis Garneau shoes come in a variety of lengths between 22 inches and 36 inches long. The width is designed to be proportional to the length, so a lighter hiker's shoes will be narrower. All of our shoes list the weight capacity specific to each snowshoe to help you determine your best fit. ( See the size chart below)

Snowshoe Size Chart

If you are in between sizes, think about maneuverability and traction-a smaller snowshoe will offer better of both. Smaller snowshoes are also better for steep slopes, thick forests and wet snow. On the other side of the spectrum, larger snowshoes will compress more of the snow below you to give you the feeling of floating higher. In light, dry powder and on flatter, straighter excursions, you'll enjoy a bigger snowshoe.

  • Snowshoe Rental: $12/Day
  • Pole Rental: $8/Day
  • Snowshoe/Pole Rental: $18/Day
  • Weekend Snowshoe/Pole Rental: $25 (Includes Saturday pickup and return by closing on Monday)
