Equipment Rentals

New for 2021 Season: Ski Rentals available!

For CLUB Members - Those youth registered in an RDN season program.

NEW FOR 2021* Club Rental Program


Beginning this year, participants of the Jackrabbits and Youth Learn to Ski programs are offered the opportunity to rent a set of quality boots, poles, and classic skis (skin-style).  This is a great opportunity to get new kids/families into the sport, so let's share this great news and get the word out.   


Quantities are limited and prioritization will be offered based on registration time.  Note the deadline to sign-up to Jackrabbits and Youth Learn to Ski is Friday, January 8th.  Equipment will remain at River Bend on non-program nights (see rental program details below) and the club will work to assign sizing in consideration of all participants requests (we will refund registrants should availability dictate). This also means that for families that are just looking to try it out for a day, they can do that by renting directly at the River Bend Clubhouse (follow the signs).

Important: Renting families MUST pickup and return their rental equipment to the River Bend Clubhouse at the beginning and the end of EACH practice.  This allows youth in the community the ability to rent nordic equipment during non-practice nights.  Renters are provided four (4) youth free ski rental coupons to use on non-practice nights throughout the season.  River Bend also offers family rentals for adults and older youth.  Please ensure arrival 15-minutes before practice to ensure starting on time.
