Had a great 4 hour snow shoe trip up to Emerald Lake. Estes Park Mountain Shop provided boots, snow shoes, poles, snacks and water. Nick Duttle was the guide they hooked us up with and he delivered a great experience. I highly recommend both. So much fun.

We came from Texas on vacation. I didn't want to have to purchase boots that we would only use this one trip. I called ahead and made arrangements and both my daughter and myself rented a pair of boots for the week. It was well worth it and we didn't have to worry about packing them.

We rented sleds for $5 each for use in Hidden Valley in the RMNP and equipment for skiing (skis, poles & boots) for $25 per person which is a great deal compared to renting at the resorts. Saved us a good chunk of money! They have everything you could possibly need.
