What a season!



Our last campsite on the Missinaibi

Thank you SO much for such an amazing winter. We have over 13 feet of snow fall this winter and without any significant thawing that means that we still have snow in the dark corners of the land.

We have spent the last month bringing in our firewood for next year and we’re already getting excited for what’s to come for the 2020 season.

Come back often and sign up for our newsletter because it won’t be long before our schedule is live!

We’re Outta Here!

The time has come where we put on our snowshoes and vanish for three weeks in the great northern landscapes of the mighty Missinaibi River. We are travelling by foot, self-supported for 160 kilometres (100 miles) down the river towards the small town of Mattice. This means- the store is shut down until we get back. If you do not hear from us, this is why!

Thank you all SO much for your support this season- what a fantastic season it was. We will see you all when we get back! If you would like to follow our journey head to our Facebook or Instagram Page for all our updates.

Enjoy the rest of your winter everyone!

What a Season Thus Far!!

We are currently out on our Life on the Trapline course and have been non-stop since Christmas. We hope you have all been able to get out and enjoy this extreme winter we’re having. It has been a wild ride thus far and we want to thank all of you who have been patient with slow response times as we are focusing on our expeditions.

Up next is our biggest guided trip ever and it is down the historic Missinaibi River. We will be gone for three weeks on the trail with 10 intrepid explorer’s snowshoeing 160 km down the steepest section of the river.

Thank you so much for all of your continued support!

Our Pond lit up with activity and the new moon rising.

All good things must come to an end!

Our DIY Sale will come to an end on Dec 31st as we prepare to transition into our expedition season.

On that same note, please be aware that shipping and communication speeds will be slower during our busy trip season.  DIY kits, stoves, toboggans and other non-custom orders should continue to ship quite quickly, but new mitten and moccasin kits will not be filled until the spring.

Thank you so much for your support this pre-season, and wishing you a cold, snowy and adventurous winter!

We’ve tried the carrot, now its time for the stick!

You got this! You can definitely make your very own beautiful, functional moccasins and mittens!

We have continued to have an incredible response to our specialized clothing and equipment this year, and for that we’re very thankful!  Unfortunately because of that response, our hand-crafted mittens and moccasins are now subject to lengthy delays. As of December 3rd, we are now targeting shipping new moccasin and mittens orders between Christmas and New years.  That’s the stick.

But we’re still happy to dangle the carrot for you as well!  If you’re willing to make them yourself we’re shipping our DIY moccasin and mitten kits without delay, and we’re still offering them at a sale price while we try to work through our backlog of finished items.

Thank you for your patience!
