Click here to see our two-page 4-Season Equipment Rental brochure (July 2020).


If you’d like to enjoy the great outdoors this winter, but don’t have your own equipment, you can rent what you need from Outdoor Recreation.


Season rentals are for skiers and snowboarders who rent a specific set of equipment and keep it for the entire winter ski season. Then tend to be frequent skiers.


Daily rentals are for skiers and snowboarders who occasionally rent equipment for an occasional ski trip.




Reservations can be made up to 14 days in advance if there is a fitting form on file for the current season (Note:  This differs from our general rental policies.). Due to the limited quantity, we do not take reservations for Ski/Snowboard Pants and Jackets.


A new fitting form must be completed each ski season. Fittings can be completed in person Monday – Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 pm. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. No reservations can be made without an updated form on file. It is the renter’s responsibility to complete the form.


Due to the high frequency of Skis and Snowboards being returned damaged, we offer a Damage Insurance for these items. The insurance covers any repairable damage to the base of the ski/snowboard, but does not cover the loss of the equipment due to irreparable damage, theft, or loss.  


Rental Rates

There is a minimum one-day charge for all items; the one-day charge is based on a 24-hour period. Rental charges start the day you pick up or reserve to pick up the equipment. Equipment is back no later than 2 p.m. the day that it is scheduled to be returned, unless the item is paid for and taken in the same day after 2 p.m., then the item is due back at the time payment was rendered. Sundays are not taken into consideration when determining rental fees.


Reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance of the date of pick-up. Payment in full is due at the time the reservation is made. Reservations can be picked up any time during business hours.


No refunds will be given for reservations over holiday weekends.  Otherwise canceled reservations will receive a full refund. If you do not pick up your reserved equipment, but do not cancel the reservation, no refund will be provided.  

Early Returns

No refunds are provided for rental items returned earlier than the contracted due date.


Late Returns

Equipment returned after 2 p.m. of the scheduled return date will be assessed a late fee of 50% the one-day rental rate for the item. Equipment returned after the scheduled return date will be assessed the full one-day rental rate for each business day it is late.

Condition of Equipment

It is the responsibility of the renter to inspect each item thoroughly before leaving our facility. If an item has damage or a defect, it will be noted on your rental contract or a replacement will be provided if available. Any damage/defect to an item not noted on the rental contract will be assessed damage fees to be paid by the renter. An ODR staff member will assess damage fees, which will be no more than the amount required to cover the costs of any replacement parts and their installation.

The renter will be responsible for the full replacement cost of items that are no longer able to be rented due to loss, theft, or irreparable damage.

Inclement Weather

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.

Base Closures

If the base is closed to non-essential personnel on a day you are scheduled to pick up, a refund will be provided for the day of the closure if you choose to pick up the next business day or for the full rental period if you choose not to pick up your rental. If the base is closed to non-essential personnel on the day you are scheduled to return, your rentals well be due by 2 p.m. the next business day.

Delayed Reporting

If delayed reporting is in effect for non-essential personnel, ODR will open 30 minutes after the designated reporting time.

Loading and Unloading

Customers are responsible for loading and unloading their rental equipment in/onto their vehicle and/or trailer, ensuring items are secure, and attaching any tow-able items to their vehicle. Outdoor Recreation and its staff are not responsible for damages or injuries caused by the loading/unloading process.

When picking up or returning bounce houses, canoes, or kayaks, customers must be able to bend, stoop, and lift at least 50lbs and must be accompanied by another person who can bend, stoop, and lift at least 50lbs. Accommodations can be made for individuals with disabilities.

My friend and I took Willy’s ski tune class in the Outdoor Rec building.  What a great guy and the perfect class for someone like me.  He is the most knowledgeable person I’ve met when it comes to ski tuning and his easy nature enabled him to connect with all the students.  He answered every question and made sure we all knew what we were doing before we left the building. I’ve already recommended that other skiers/riders look into signing up for his class.  Good Job 21st!                                                                                                                                                                                                                               – Anon., Dec. 21, 2016
