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 a full line of Rossignol and Salomon skate skis, boots and bindings. We can also help custom fit Swix or Start poles to your exact height to get the most out of your efforts on the trail. Our expert ski technicians can offer waxing advice, or wax them for you and make them rocket-ship fast.
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 or MSR 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
Playing in the mountains in the winter can be a wonderful experience, if you stay safe. Backwoods is proud to offer the latest Air Bag Packs and tools for staying safe in avalanche terrain, from simply giving out the Avalanche Center’s phone number (208-622-8027) to demoing the latest digital beacons. Remember knowledge is the best tool out there. And Yes, we refill Air Bag Canisters.
