Down Wind Sports is a small, U.P. shop that carries a variety of sporting accessories including snowshoes, snowboards, skis, kayaks, tents, camping gear, mountain bikes, and clothing.

This is also a place where you can have your bike tuned.

Down Wind Sports also sponsors events and clinics throughout the year. Check with the store to see what activities they may have scheduled.

They also have a number of items that you may rent, such as ice climbing boots and crampons, cross country skis, snowshoes, alpine skis, and mountain bikes. If you try out a sport, and enjoy it, a one-time rental fee can be applied to the purchase of new equipment.

What to pay: This shop carries quality items such as Patagonia clothing, and quality sports equipment, so this is not a discount store. So unless there is a sale, expect to pay fairly high prices.
