    I don't. But REI rents them on the cheap.

    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!
