Recreation Rental Program

Rental equipment is available at a reduced cost for your own adventures.

Find gear for activities such as paddling, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, camping and more. Equipment rotates to match the seasons. At times, equipment is packaged with upcoming trips or ticket sales for even better deals.

As all equipment is purchased with S&A Fees, we are able to offer high quality gear at rates lower than local shops.

The Rental Program is housed in the Recreation Office in the Annex. Contact the Recreation Office for more information.
