Ski & Snowshoe Rentals

Trails & Conditions

Due to the warm temps and deteriorating trail conditions we will be closing ski and snowshoe rentals.

Wilderness Trail is currently closed. 

We are doing everything we can to help keep everyone safe during rental season this year.  The staff has spend time discussing and putting new safety protocols into place.  We will be requiring masks inside of our building and only allowing a limited number of people inside the building and gearing up at a time.  we are expecting the rental process to take a little bit more time because of the safety protocols that we have put in place. 

***Please allow for more time and be patient when coming to rent gear this year
