The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of outdoor sporting equipment and apparel at Track ‘N Trail.
Track ‘N Trail’s staff stuffs their craniums with sporting knowledge, while stocking the store with adventuresome gear from a wide swatch of purveyors, including The North Face, Black Diamond, and Osprey. Having tackled various Canadian challenges such as mountain and observation tower climbing, the shop’s team harnesses Nordic knowhow and can recommend guide books including Ski Trails in the Canadian Rockies ($21.95). After perusing a variety of ski gear and clothing from the likes of Fischer, Atomic, and Alpina, patrons keep paws toasty in a pair of Auclair powder country gloves ($49.95) while winding trails or fish-tailing down mountainsides. Customer’s can also select an Icebreaker Oasis Crewe long sleeve merino wool thermal undershirt ($89.95) designed to trap heat and hug torsos as tightly as an affectionate bear-hug from an aunt who happens to also be a bear. Outdoor enthusiasts can also try on and try out a wide array of gear suited to cross-country and backcountry skiers, hikers, backpackers, and climbers.
