Avalanche Safety

    Playing in the mountains in the winter can be a wonderful experience, if you stay safe. Backwoods is proud to offer the latest tools for staying safe in avalanche terrain, from simply giving out the Avalanche Center’s phone number (622-8027) to demoing the latest digital beacons. In season we also hold beacon clinics every Tuesday afternoon at 3PM… call ahead to find out where.

    Nordic Skate & Classic Skiing

    With the North Valley Trail system, the Wood River Trails, and Sun Valley Nordic Center, you can skate every day of the week and not hit the same trail twice. We are proud to offer the full line of Rossignol skate skis, boots and bindings, as well as boots and bindings from Salomon. We will also help custom fit Exel poles to your exact height to get the most out of your efforts on the trail. Our expert ski technicians can offer waxing advice, hot box your skis for better wax penetration, or grind the bases to get them back to factory fresh.

    Looking for a great way to get out in the winter and enjoy the simpler pace of walking through the mountains? Then try a pair of Tubbs, MSR or Salomon snowshoes and see how easy it can be. We offer various sizes for different activities (packed trail versus fresh powder) and ability levels, as well as different binding systems for more security or better packability. Complete the package with a pair of adjustable poles and you’re ready for a great winter tour.
