Hikers in the winter months strap on snowshoes to keep their feet from sinking into snowdrifts, where their vulnerable ankles might be seized by a hibernating yeti or secret colony of ice elves. Avoid meddling with mythical creatures with today's Groupon: $14 for a two-day snowshoe rental with poles (including weekends) or $20 for a 3-hour kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddle board rental from Ocean River Sports on Store Street. After picking up a pair of snowshoes at Ocean River Sports' convenient dockside location, outdoor adventurers can trip lightly over the snow cloaking their favourite wilderness trails, even bringing the shoes on overnight trips to explore forests further afield. Those willing to delay gratification may opt to bask in summer sunshine during a three-hour rental of Ocean River Sports' many seaworthy crafts, including kayaks, canoes and surfboard-like stand-up paddle boards that offer the rower a unique core workout and astonishing views of the tops of nearby canoers’ heads.
