Equipment Rentals

Maine Bound Adventure Center is open for rentals!

Rentals are open to students, faculty, staff, campus recreation members, and community members. 

 

Due to increased demand for XC ski and snowshoe rentals we are no longer taking walk-in weekend and weeklong advance reservations. To reserve skis or snowshoes for a weekend or a full week please fill out this form.*

Are you interested in renting skis and snowshoes for a group? Gather height and shoe size for xc skis, and approximate weight for snowshoes, then fill out our ski and snowshoe reservation request form.*

We will get back to you within 72 hours. Please note that skis and snowshoes may not be available on some weekend days.
