Anyone know how to get a hold of the shop in Graegle who rents snowshoes?
I don't. But REI rents them on the cheap.
Here you go!

Yohyat, we carry two lines of Crescent Moon Snowshoes for rent and sale. We are not open fulltime until Spring however, the shop will be open Saturdays from 11-3pm until April 15, then it will be Thursday-Monday (hrs tba). If you are in need at other times, please call 530 836-2ski (2574).
I believe Mountain Hardware in Blairsden rents them as well.
Keep in mind - you can buy entry level snow shoes for under $100, and probably will pay $20 or more to rent similar ones. May be worth you while just buying, if you go even once a year.
We carry Crescent Moon Silver Series shoes which are light weight, easy to use, durable and made in the USA. Cost is $15 for the first day, $10 the next and $5 for a third. Rental fees are applied against the cost if you wish to buy. Poles are recommended for backcountry and longer treks, we have teloscoping type as well.
Regardless, stop buy for a cup of locally roasted coffee and we can chat about winter sports in the area!
thanks for the replies. I think my buddy Frank rented a set from you. I had to grab some in truckee because some of the people in my group needed boots. but we didn't get telescoping poles from that shop which turned out to be a bust. Next time!
