“Hiking, Paddling and ‘Bending a Knee’ since ’73”
…. this is our 38th year!
In Summer: We offer flatwater kayaks, by Hurricane, Wilderness Systems and Perception, custom fit to each paddlers use, from small mountain ponds to coastal waterways. Back this season, we have Stand Up Paddleboards, the newest fun adventure sport for a summer workout or just cruising around. We also have a Thule rack specialist who can recommend and install a car or truck rack on your vehicle to carry anything from cargo boxes, to bikes, to boats and ladders…We have hiking and camping footwear and gear, tents, packs and sleeping bags, along with the technical outdoor clothing by Patagonia and The North Face for all your summer adventures.
In Winter: We are specialists in Telemark , Backcountry and Alpine Touring Skiing… We began ‘bending a knee in ’73’ and it has been our passion ever since. We ‘talk Tele’ and ‘AT’ like no other shop in the area. We know all about “earning your turns”. We can teach you all about the ‘uphill’ and the downhill on ‘freeheel’ equipment. We sell Telemark, XC, Metal Edged Backcountry, Alpine Touring/ Randonne’ Skis, Boots and Bindings, as well as climbing skins, and Atlas Snowshoes. We have a downstairs showroom year round.
