A crossover from our summer operation Wild Havens. These canvas bell tents make a genuine palace for your powder backcountry adventures. 

Due to the bulk and weight you will need a sled or heli to get these tents into the zone and they are not straightforward to pitch but once you've got it setup you will be so satisfied.

We recommend using these tents as a communal area for a group to shelter and cook on. We recommend sleeping in one of our dedicated 4 season camping tents.

These tents are, most often used with a wood burning stove which we are unable to rent due to insurance and federal restrictions. Portable wood burning stoves are available to purchase online and you can often find used models locally.

The use of any kind of heating or cooking equipment is the renters responsibility.

Due to the complexity of pitching a tent like this in the snow we will only rent them out to people that have a good understanding of what is involved. Although the tents are robust, if not used correctly it is easy to damage them. If you are interested please send us a message outlining your experience and trip plan.
