If you are taking a course with International Alpine Guides or another guide service, call the shop and we will due our best to outfit you with some touring gear while supplies last.

Our Truckee store is right on the main drag – 11400 DONNER PASS ROAD – easily found the moment you pull off I-80, with easy parking just out front. Grab food in our parking lot at Taco’s Jalisco or 7-11. Across the street grab some world class coffee and cafe treats at Zuri Coffee Co. or at Wild Cherries Coffee House.

Misc. Gear

*Note: it is better to own most of the safety gear rather than rent. The history of these rental items is impossible to know and the integrity impossible to test. Transceivers often need new batteries, test yours before going out. Crampons can break, ours are intended for snow travel only, not for use on ice. Rental skins are cut to fit a variety of different skis and therefore do not provide the best traction for uphill travel. We have this rental gear if you need it, but also sell these items in the shop new.
