Escape Cabin Fever with Norris Outdoors

Imagine this: It’s almost winter break, and you’re about to head home to relax and soak in the temporary freedom from school. Meanwhile, you’re lying on your bed when an idea suddenly strikes you. You bolt upright.

“Let’s go camping!” you exclaim to an empty room. Or maybe it’s not empty. Who knows.

The more you think about it, the better this idea seems. You don’t even need to limit yourself to camping. Winter means snow, and snow obviously means the perfect opportunity to go skiing or snowboarding! Just imagining the cozy lodges, the flickering campfires, the exhilaration of zipping down snowy slopes, and the laughter and quality time spent with friends is enough to get you excited.

This is probably the best idea you’ve had, ever. You get ready to share this amazing idea with everyone on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat when a terrible thought suddenly crawls into your head.

You don’t have any equipment. How’re you gonna have fun when you have no equipment?

Luckily, Norris has your back. For all of winter break, Norris Outdoors is offering a discounted price on item rentals. You can rent ski bundles (boots, poles, and skis) for $35 while tents, backpacks, and sleeping bags are all $25 each. All other items are only $10. Those aren’t daily prices, you realize. Those cover the entire 3–4 weeks of winter break. Finally, a deal that your poor, suffering bank account can handle.

In light of these amazing deals, you do the reasonable thing and call up all your friends, plan a huge trip, and rent some equipment from Norris. Just pick up your rental items from Norris Outdoors from December 5–9 and return them on either January 3 or 4, and bam, your amazing winter break is set. How easy and affordable was that? You can practically see the pine trees already, and you can’t wait.
