From the time I was little Ive always loved the outdoors. I grew up in a family where appreciation for natures beauty was a value drilled into us nearly as often as "Say please. My name is Brian Hughes and my wife Bec and I are the founders of Tuckerman Outfitters LLC. When we started this business we saw it as a chance to share our love of nature with other outdoor enthusiasts like you. Were passionate about adventurous living and we hope you are too. In short Tuckerman Outfitters isnt just our business; its personal. We care about the outdoors and we care about you. Thats reflected in the products we offer and the level of service we provide. We love helping others to enjoy natures gifts just as we do.
Snowshoeing has become quite a popular pastime for many in the Canadian Rockies. First of all the equipment is minimal you need a pair of snowshoes. It is also a lot easier to learn than cross country skiing and for sure costs a lot less than downhill skiing. Now for the list. My wife and I along with members of our hiking club The Rocky Mountain Ramblers have personally hiked these trails many times. 1. Paradise Valley This is a beautiful hike in the Lake Louise and Moraine Lake area of Banff National Park. There is little elevation gain on this hike and beautiful views of towering Mt. Temple and surrounding peaks. Most people will go as far as the second bridge and then turn around but if conditions allow (avalanche) you can carry on to Lake Annette.
Snowshoes are seeing a resurgence in popularity. Today these pieces of equipment can be divided into three types: aerobic recreational and mountaineering. The first aerobic are small and lightweight. They are not intended for use over rough terrain but rather on groomed trails. Such snowshoes are commonly used by runners who want to be able to exercise even when there is snow on the ground. Recreational snowshoes and a bit larger and as the name implies most often used on snow hikes. Such hikes are usually three to five miles as anything beyond that is considered mountaineering which requires the largest and toughest kind of snowshoe.
Working with rawhide. You just received this hard stiff piece of rawhide and are wondering how in the heck do I get this soft enough to use. I have received many calls from clients asking how to best rehydrate the rawhide. Finally I decided to just write it down and put it on our web site. Rawhide Lace: The best way I have found to relax rawhide lace is to place the entire bundle in lukewarm water let me repeat t hat LUKEWARM WATER! A small child should be able place their hand in it without whining! Hot water will destroy the tissue in rawhide and you will have gelatin. Leave the bundle overnight if you even think you might leave it longer than 12 hours add some pinesol or a bit of bleach to the water usually a cup of pinesol or a couple oz.
