Exploring Winter Wonderlands

Some of the most beautiful landscapes you’ll find in Michigan can only be found in winter! Here are a few items that are great for getting outdoors when the temperatures are freezing and the snow is piling up.

TREKKING POLES

Hiking on trails can be difficult this time of year. Improve balance and stability while hiking using trekking poles! Used as a single pole or as a pair, trekking poles can take pressure off your joints along snow covered trails while greatly enhancing steadiness. Trekking poles work well for spring, summer and fall hiking trips as well! We have trekking poles from MOUNTAINSMITH and PINNACLE in stock.

KORKERS ICE CLEATS

Many outdoor enthusiasts enjoy walking or running in a winter wonderland! One item that can make having fun safe and enjoyable when the roads and trails are slippery are ice cleats from Korkers. Korkers offers ice cleats that fit over regular shoes, trail shoes and even boots. The cleats dig into snow and ice, giving you the balance and stability to enjoy the outdoors on a trail, on a frozen-over lake, or a slippery sidewalk. We have Korkers ice cleats in stock, so stop in today!

OSPREY DRYSACK

When hiking or camping in the winter, your gear and gadgets can easily get wet and damaged if not properly stored. One way to keep your valuables dry is with a dry sack from Osprey. They are available in a variety of sizes, are reasonably priced, and are a great accessory for securely and safely storing gear and gadgets all year-round.

Stop in to Earth’s Edge today to get properly geared up for exploring Michigan’s winter wonderlands! We are open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
