X- Country Skis and Snowshoes available to borrow this winter

Outdoor recreation is more important then ever this winter so we are happy to announce that CROSS-COUNTRY SKI AND SNOWSHOE EQUIPMENT RENTALS are now available at the Boreal Centre.

Although the centre is currently closed to the public for drop-in use, we have worked hard to develop a new equipment rental process for our snowshoes and cross-country ski equipment that will enable local residents to safely enjoy outdoor winter fun within the current COVID-19 restrictions. Due to limited equipment and high demand, rentals will be available on a short-term basis only. These rentals are available FREE thanks to special funding from our sponsors.
DOWNLOAD THE EQUIPMENT RENTAL FORM and submit it to info@borealbirdcentre.ca. If you have any questions, you can contact us at 780-849-8240 for more information.
