Alpine Touring Rentals

(includes Splitboard, Avy, Telemark)

The Bugaboos. The Monashees. How about the local mountains and backcountry just outside our doorstep?  In BC, we are spoiled with a diverse and incredible range of alpine touring options.  And with a season that stretches from October to July – you’ve got lots of time to enjoy it!

Alpine touring (AT) has seen a considerable growth in popularity recently and for good reason.  No lift lines, no crowds, no icy runs.  Just you, some friends, knee deep pow, and incredible solitude.  We’ve got the gear to make that happen.  Our rental ski quiver features great touring options from DPS Skis, Black Diamond, and G3.  Plus you’ll be secure in our Scarpa, Garmont, or BD boots.

Avy equipment is also an important part of being safe and having fun.  We’ve got some of the best brands, with G3 (Shovels and probes), Black Diamond (Shovels), Mammut (Probes & Beacons), BCA (Beacons), Black Diamond (Ava Lung), and ABS (Avalanche airbags - 2 sizes, Small & Large torso length).

*We have skis mounted with Tele bindings, touring bindings (tech style) and original touring bindings.  Splitboard customers provide own bindings.

*TRUE OUTDOORS also offers information evenings on avalanche safety throughout the winter.
