Reservations may be made up to 30 days in advance for summer equipment rental items, and are highly recommended on large items like grills, dunk booths and equipment for large group functions.
Skis can only be reserved seven days in advance. You may be fitted and take the equipment the same day. Fittings end 30 minutes prior to close. A fitting information card will be kept on file for the remainder of the current season. A non-refundable deposit of 50 percent is due at time of reservation. Skis must be returned by noon on the return date or an extra day rental may be charged.
All equipment is checked out based on current availability. ODR is not responsible if equipment is not used for weather conditions or other circumstances that may prevent a customer from being able to use the equipment.
There is a minimum one-day charge on all items rented. In order to make a rental reservation a 50% rental deposit is required. This rental deposit is non-refundable once the reservation is placed. The remaining 50% of the rental fee will be due upon pickup of the items rented. If you cancel your reservation you will forfeit your 50% deposit but may receive the remaining 50% of the rental cost if you paid in advance.
Rental charges start the day that you pick up your equipment. Weekly rates are five daily fee charges; Sunday is FREE for summer gear. For example, if you pick up a $10 tent on Friday and return it on Monday, your cost will be the low price of just $20 for the whole weekend. All gear must be returned by noon to avoid late charges.
Failure to pick up reserved items or a cancellation of a reservation will result in forfeiture of the entire deposit (50 percent rental fee). Late charges will be added when equipment is returned after noon on the return date in the amount of 50 percent of the daily rental rate.
Condition of Equipment
Thoroughly inspect each item before leaving our facility. If the condition does not meet your satisfaction, simply ask any member of the Outdoor Recreation Team to replace it with a like item or have the loan receipt annotated to indicate the discrepancy. It will be assumed that any equipment checked out is in a serviceable condition unless noted on the receipt. Damage or loss of any item will be charged against the user for the cost to repair or replace that item, in accordance with applicable regulations. All equipment must be returned in its pre-rental condition, i.e. tents will be completely dry, food preparation and storage equipment should be well cleaned, ice & water coolers must be thoroughly dry, cleaned inside and out.
Late Return Policy
When checking out equipment, you will be asked for a specific return date. If the equipment is returned after noon on the specified date, it is considered late. There will be a late charge assessed for each item returned after the due date. Late charges will be added when equipment is returned after noon on the due date in the amount of 50 percent of the daily rental fee.
