Rental Shop

Trailer is open 10am - 4pm Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm Weekends

Our rental shop will get you outfitted for classic or skate ski equipment and snowshoes. New for 2020-2021, trail passes can be purchased online in the Kawartha Nordic online store. Save time when renting equipment and bring your completed rental form to the rental shop. The rental shop is located in the trailer in the parking lot. Please note that if you are renting equipment please purchase your trail pass in-person at the rental shop.

In addition to fitting you with rental equipment, our rental shop staff can offer advice to make your day with us more enjoyable. For your safety and that of our staff, all sales and rentals will be completed outside through the rental shop window. Once your equipment is ready it will be placed outside for you to pick up. All returning rentals will be placed in the waxing trailer where it will be sanitized before next use.

Save time and bring a completed, printed rental form with you: Rental Form

Need to wax your skis before heading out? We have a self-service wax room in the trailer directly behind the rental shop and day pass trailer. Tables and forms are provided but bring your own wax supplies and iron.

We also offer day and season trail passes along with various sundry items for sale, and can accept payment by debit, VISA or Mastercard during business hours, but when the rental shop is closed, please deposit your exact change in the box at the self-serve booth outside the shop.

Trails are open 24x7 during the winter.

Gift certificates are available for purchase and can be redeemed online or in person at Kawartha Nordic for trail passes or rentals. See below for details.
