The BackCountry

Four-season Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area is known for outdoor recreation. It’s certainly full of “back country” destinations that offer unparalleled views and experiences you won’t get at a ski resort or along a paved road. The BackCountry in Truckee is here to help you get geared-up for it all. Bikes, safety gear, and apparel, as well as snow sports and camping gear, they can get you outfitted for your next Tahoe outdoor adventure. They’re located at 11400 Donner Pass Road in Truckee. Call 530-582-0909 for more information or to ask if the gear for your activities is ready for rental. Hours are daily 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.


If your packing list for outdoor gear is limited to the clothing and accessories you can fit into a suitcase, you’re going to need the big things before you head out on an adventure. Outfit yourself for activities like backcountry or cross country Truckee skiing, snowshoeing, climbing, and more. They even rent safety gear so you’re ready to go no matter what.


From bike parts to the latest in safety equipment and apparel, there’s something to meet everyone’s needs. Bike sizes range from 10” to 26” so you can choose the one that’s right for you. They can even outfit your rental car with bike racks and carriers to make exploring the great outdoors of Lake Tahoe limitless!

Hike, Camp, or Climb

While you’re likely returning to your vacation rental provided by Tahoe Signature Properties, you might consider a night camping on the mountain after a good hike. Score the latest gear for both activities, including backpacking-size tents, water bottles and hydration packs, hiking and day packs, headlamps, and even first aid bags full of the basic first aid items you need while out on a hike. Take the adventure vertical! You can get rope, helmets, shoes, harnesses, and everything else you need for a climbing adventure before heading out.

Snow Sports

If you’d rather not rent, you can buy snowboards, skis, poles, ski boots, and everything else you’ll need for the snow sport of your choice.


You likely brought warm socks, a thick coat, snow hat, and other winter gear for your winter adventure, or baseball hats and lightweight clothes for summer activities, but you may need to replace something. There’s apparel for men, women, and youth for every need.
