"There is no such thing as too much snow." 
- Doug Coobs
Winter is here! 
It's official folks, winter is here! If you want to venture out into the wilderness this season, make sure to swing by the shop for a pit stop. We are now fully stocked on snowshoes, ski accessories, gloves, toques, insulation layers, base layers, mid-layers, shell jackets and lots of food to keep you fueled.  We also rent snowshoes, poles, sleeping bags, ice axes, and beacons - pretty much anything you need to keep yourself safe this winter.
Pure Life Paddle Boards 
We're excited to announce our new partnership with Pure Life Paddle Boards starting December 2019! Pop by the shop and check 'em out; until those lakes freeze you have no excuse! We'll be selling boards for touring, recreation, surfing and white water - for all ages! These boards are designed and tested right here in beautiful Chilliwack, British Columbia. Stay tuned for summer courses and guided trips this upcoming Spring.

We did the math...as a combined staff we have over 80 international trips to 62 different countries! We're always excited to hear about your overseas adventures, and we can help you choose the best gear for your trip, whether you're camping on the beach in Costa Rica or trekking the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. 
If you enjoy extensive world travel but want a practical backpack that offers all the benefits of a suitcase, a Deuter Aviant travel pack might be what you're looking for.

Building on the foundations of AST 1, AST 2 is a 3-day course for advanced backcountry skiers and boarders.

CREVASSE RESCUE & GLACIER TRAVEL  // January 18-19
