Rented snow boots and microspikes for $20 for a hike in the rocky national park. They were so helpful reccomending hiking routes, advising on conditions and equipment. Definitely made our trip easy, safe, and fun.

I've been going to the Estes Park Mountain Shop since before I can remember- well, since I was born (20 years ago). The staff has always been great and helpful, and they have awesome deals on NorthFace and other products. I wasn't entirely blown away with their boot selection when we went over Christmas break, but they carry anything else... More

Thanks to the array of equipment available and the helpful service, we left ready to have an awesome day snowshoeing. We rented snow boots, snow shoes, poles, and a pair of gloves and bought a hat.

Rented snowshoes here and my wife bough some nice hikers at the same time as well. Nice, friendly staff. Great selection of stuff. Bargain basement was cool. I could have spent a lot more time (and money here), but we had to get going for snowshoeing.

We stopped in every morning to rent whatever equipment we needed for our day. Staff were super helpful and knowledgeable about the different trails, their current condition, and what equipment would be best. Super cheap but also good quality rentals! We tried snowshoeing and micro spikes, but they also had sleds, cross-country skis and other stuff too.
