Club Rentals

Winter will arrive again and the club is preparing to groom and make snow in HRM! Below is all the info you need to book your rental time for your children and I’m sure there will be a few parents looking to take some lessons who can rent as well.

Participants in club youth programs are eligible for low-cost, season-long ski rentals from the Club’s inventory.

Location: 8 Cherry Drive Dartmouth. Bring membership registration confirmation email to prove eligibility (I can look at your phone) + 2 cheques

Dates: See Below

Cost: $40 for classic (4-8 yr olds) / $80 for universal (9+ and includes poles for both classic and skate). 

Full sets only (skis, poles, boots) to youth registered in lessons. 

After December 1st partial rentals of remaining gear will be available to any Halifax Nordic club member. *There are a limited number of larger-size skate skis which will be available to rent. Adults looking to rent from the club will have to wait until November 18th. Adults signed up for lessons with youth signed up for lessons will be eligible to rent during these times when renting for their children. Those adults who have rented in the past, please consider purchasing your own equipment to allow first timers the opportunity to rent from the club. 

Please select your rental time from the following doodle polls. Rental equipment will be guaranteed for your children up to December 1st. If the time slots fill up then I will create another rental day and times. This will help eliminate the mass arrivals to my garage. Thank you.

**There will be no more random arrival times. Please be on time for your time slot. Thank you.
