Darn Tough Winter

It's been a tough winter across the country for those in the outdoor industry.  This has meant tough times for those of us depending on snow.  Locally I'd hoped to take the Camel's Hump Challenge this weekend but yet again it has been postponed due to lack of snow.  Down the road a few miles, Bolton Valley Resort opened their Timberline quad for the first time this season yesterday.  But fortunately conditions high up in the backcountry are decent, even if there is a lack of powder out there.   So tomorrow's day off promises a great traverse of the Bolton-Trapps section of the Catamount Trail

If you're on-line reading this you probably could care less that I'm inside today working  But you might care that all week we've been loading up our Clearance Page with great deals.  Given how firm--i.e. icy--many trails have been this year, now may be the best time to get a grip with the 360 degrees of traction offered by MSR snowshoesMSR's Lightning Ascent snowshoes are now at the LOWEST PRICE we've ever offered them for.  From my personal experience I can't speak highly enough of how well these perform going through the woods and up and down steep mountainsides.  Despite our darn tough winter, I still wish I was outside now!
