My husband and I did a guided snowshoeing trip with The Gear ReSource Outfitters this past weekend. Unfortunately the candlelit snowshoe trip was cancelled due to impending rain, but Nicole, our guide, did a great job communicating with us about alternative options. In the end, we ended up in Nerstrand Big Woods State Park for an earlier snowshoeing adventure. It... More

A friend and I did the 1/2 day snowshoe/winery outing with Nicole and Grant. 35 people in the group, and it never felt crowded or rushed. They do an awesome job! I also bought Groupons for the moonlight snow shoe tour -- we are going this weekend and I can't wait! After a fantastic few hours in the park, the... More

I went with a group of 8 other girls for snowshoeing/winery experience. We went to the state park in Red Wing on a perfect 20 degree day. Nicole, Robert, and Phillip (and Dakota and Sampson- the adorable dogs!) did a fantastic job! Only one of us had been snowshoeing before, but I think all of us would go again! We... More

I have gone twice now with them on a Snowshoeing/Winery Adventure. It is a workout, that is for sure! Amazing scenery, wonderful guides, and such a GREAT time! Next up - I will be signing up for a Moonlight Snowshoeing adventure.

My wife and I signed up for a combination snowshoe outing/wine tasting through The GearResource Outfitters in Northfield. We are locals, and have shopped in the store a number of times, but had never done one of their excursions previously. Nicole was very patient and helpful, answering lots of my questions via phone. Robert and she led the snowshoeing outing... More

My husband has always wanted to kayak and for Father's Day I gave him a gift certificate from Gear ReSource to kayak down the Cannon River. We took the trip this last Saturday and it did not disappoint! The folks at Gear ReSource did a great job of setting everything up for us and getting us outfitted and trained. We... More

We wanted a true Minnesota experience and opted for a snowshoe outing which exceeded all expectations. The staff was extremely nice and understanding with first timers. Their website does not do them justice. The infortmation/description was lacking. However, we called the store directly for further information and they were great at handling our questions and even directed us to YouTube... More
