Equipment Rentals

2022-22 SKI SEASON

Kanata Nordic has a small fleet of rental ski packages, snowshoes, and headlamps. The ski shop is accessed from the main Kanata Nordic entrance on Corkstown Road (on the hill between the campground and the equestrian park). Look for the tall red flag. DO NOT trust Google as it will direct you to the club’s mailbox on the other side of Kanata.

This year the shop is located in the chalet (see trail map) but all rental operations occur outside and safely distanced. Please wear a well-fitting mask when you’re dealing with our rental shop volunteers. You can drive through the parking lot and around the bend where you’ll see the shop. You can park at the side of the road as long as you’re not blocking through traffic.

Rentals are first-come, first served. We do not take reservations unless it’s for a group (6 or more).

The rental equipment was made possible by a generous grant from the Ottawa Community Foundation.

OPERATING HOURS

Saturdays and Sundays until March 14. If the trails are closed the rentals likely are too, so check this page.

From 9:30am – 12:30pm only

Important! On weekends only members can park at this parking lot and use the trails there. But non-members can drive in to rent equipment to use elsewhere. We recommend the nearby Ottawa West Winter Trail (OWWT). Here’s a link to the OWWT trail map (scroll down).

Volunteers needed! Our little rental shop is in need of volunteers. Retail experience would be nice but more important is a helping attitude and knowledge of our trail network and skiing (ideally both classic and skate techniques). Hours are flexible but likely some mid-week and weekend mornings. We’ll train you. Interested? To find out more contact Marlene.
