backcountry ski rentals in southwestern ontario?
« on: December 20, 2008, 06:41:14 pm »
Hey.

I'm planning on slipping out on a little trip between Christmas and New Years.
I'm not exactly sure where I'll go yet but I'd like to add some skiing to the trip.

Does anybody know where I could rent a some backcountry skis?
I called mec, but they only rent skating and track skis.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I think you may be out of luck. Try Sojourn in Barrie but I can't think of anybody who would rent them. Maybe Algonquin Outfitters if they are open.

You may be able to find a pair that are not back country but more of a combi style. Wider than your average classical pair but with no steel edges like the back country skis
Colder is better
