Down Wind Sports is a firm believer in the concept of "try before you buy"! A perfect way to find out if you like an activity or a particular piece of equipment is to participate in our rental program. The following is a list of equipment that we have available to rent through our Marquette and Houghton stores. Ice climbing boots and crampons, cross country skis, snowshoes, mountain bikes and goat/canoe rentals. A one time rental fee can be applied to the purchase of any new purchase that was rented.
