New activities can be intimidating, and usually the hardest part of trying something for the first time is just deciding that you are going to give it a go. If you live in a region that is lucky enough to get seasonal snow, then we are going to tell you why and how to give snowshoeing a try.

We've seen this before. February rolls around, and the temperature climbs to numbers not friendly to snow cover. No significant snow precipitation in the near future means we are probably stuck with another early spring. Last spring came early. Groups were out riding on the roads by this time of year. Tree's started to bud way ahead of schedule, and we kissed our skiing, snowshoeing and powder filled fatbike dreams away.

We might not have mountains here in the YEG area, but we sure make up for it with what we've got. We've partnered with Rabbit Hill Ski Hill to offer pass-holders special discounts on our equipment rentals. When you are done shredding the slopes at Rabbit, drop into our shop and rent a Fatbike, or Snowshoes, or give cross-country skis a try!
