Snowshoe Rentals

The Recreation Department has purchased a number of snowshoes with poles, cross-country skis, and ice grippers that we will be renting out to residents during the winter months. The cost to rent a pair of snowshoes is $1/day and they can be rented for a maximum of one week.

Items can be picked up Monday-Friday from 8:30 am-4:00 pm.

Below is a list of the snowshoes and associated weight ranges that we have available:
