Boot Rentals

Winter in the Pacific Northwest requires a little extra gear…

Washington winters can often be wet, cool and, in some places, extremely snowy! Mount Rainier National Park, for example, receives an average of 12-15 feet of snow at the higher elevation areas we explore on our full day tour. Due to the active nature of our guided tour experiences, it is important to have proper gear to be safe and feel comfortable while out on the trail. If you’re looking for guidance on what to wear for your tour, check out our page on how to dress based on the season and destination.

All of our winter snowshoe tours include the use of snowshoes and trekking poles to keep you traversing easily over the snowiest of trails, but warm, waterproof boots are essential for protecting your feet and keeping you comfortable throughout the day.

If you are traveling on any of the following tours, sturdy, waterproof boots are required for both your comfort, but more importantly for your safety along the trails.

Mount Rainier National Park Tour
When: Late October – May

Olympic National Park Tour
When: November – April

Leavenworth Tour
When: November – March

If you are traveling on any of the following tours, waterproof shoes are strongly recommended:

Deception Pass + Longmire Tours
When: November – April
Why: Seasonal Rains can make the trails muddy and slippery. Longmire also receives occassional snow throughout the winter.

Mount Rainier National Park Tour
When: May – July 1
Why: Due to the dense snowpack, many of the high elevation trails are snow covered through the end of June.

Olympic National Park Tour
When: May + Late October
Why: Spring snowmelt and Fall rains/snowfall can make the trails wet + muddy.

Mount Rainier + Yakima Wine
When: July + October
Why: This tour visits a high elevation trail which is usually the last to melt in the summer and the first to receive snow in the fall.
