Whether you’re a first-time visitor to Tahoe in the winter or you’re a seasoned Tahoe local, you should try renting snowshoes. Nothing compares to the tranquility felt when surrounded by a magical winter wonderland. Snow absorbs sound, so the woods are wonderfully quiet and peaceful on a nice winter day. To spend time enjoying the huge winter playground that is our Tahoe backyard is an experience that will live inside you forever. I highly recommend getting out in the snow and wandering around a bit. It’s good for you! As Tolkien said, “Not all who wander are lost.”
In order to stay on top of the snow and save energy while you’re exploring, you’re going to want cross-country skis, backcountry skis or snowshoes. And I’ll bet you didn’t know you can rent some of the best snowshoes on the market right here in Kings Beach, California! We rent snowshoes in Tahoe because we realize the benefit our neighbors and visitors receive through experiencing the great outdoors. And we rent snowshoes made by MSR (Mountain Safety Research), who makes high-performance outdoor equipment for serious adventure enthusiasts. MSR has been trusted for decades by extreme athletes and the U.S. military, and we would offer nothing less to anyone looking to share our passion for the outdoors, even if only for a few hours. So come on down to Tahoe Mountain Sports and check out a pair of MSR Snowshoes!
MSR calls these lightweight snowshoes the “workhorse” of their product line. They provide excellent traction and are super durable, plus they float on snow well so you can go the distance without getting too worn out.
These are the most aggressive, all-condition pair of MSR snowshoes. Greater surface area and ultralight weight provide quick and easy access to the backcountry.
Snowshoes aren’t only for those who enjoy walking on snow or winter hikes simply for the pleasure of it. There are all types of snowshoes; snowshoes for snowboarders, hunting snowshoes, mountaineering snowshoes, work snowshoes, snowshoes for kids, and more.
The next time you’re looking for snowshoe rentals in Tahoe, think Tahoe Mountain Sports in Kings Beach! We also rent avalanche beacons, shovels and probes as well as backcountry ski rentals and ski backpack rentals. If you’re really getting out there, we rent ABS avalanche airbag backpacks, and for those who are into video cameras we rent helmet cameras. There aren’t many other places to rent video cameras in Tahoe that work so well as action sports POV cameras. In fact, ION video cameras could quite possibly be make for the best helmet camera, since they’re not only WiFi video cameras, but they’re also smartphone compatible helmet cameras!
