Snowshoe Program

Thanks to the Government of NL's Community Healthy Living Fund for supporting our new snowshoe program! With their financial support we were able to purchase 22 sets of snowshoes in a variety of sizes. 

Snowshoe Rental Program

NOTE: Rentals will be FREE of charge during the week of our winter carnival (February 8 - 18, 2024)

We are pleased to introduce our very own snowshoe rental program. Thanks to the support of Government of NL’s Community Healthy Living Fund we were able to purchase 22 sets of snowshoes in 2021 for use within the region. We have 3 options for rentals of our snowshoes:

 

Daily Rental during Weekdays

  • Rentals between 9:00am – 4:00pm between Monday to Friday

  • Cost: $5.00/set for a 5-hour rental

  • All rental requests must be emailed to bookings@bbrlc.com and payment must be received by EMT or cash/debit/credit

  • Rentals can be picked up at the Lifestyle Centre – an email will be sent once they are ready.

  • All rentals must be returned to the Lifestyle Centre by 9:00pm on the same day as they were picked up.

Un-Returned & Damaged Snowshoes:

If snowshoes are not returned by the date indicated on the rental agreement, an email reminder will be sent. If after 1 week and we do not have a return, a final reminder will be sent via email and a phone call will be made to ensure messages are being received. If snowshoes are not returned after the final reminder, the renters credit card will be charged for the full amount that the snowshoes were purchased for ($135.00). Any snowshoes that are returned with damages are the renters responsibility. Any unreasonable or excessive damage to the snowshoes will result in a $100 charge to the renter.

 

How to complete online rentals:

Please allow 24 hours to process the rental request as we will need to make sure that the size you are requesting is available for rental – Ex. do not request rentals an hour before you need to use them.

 

  • Go to bbrlc.ca and download a rental request form. Send the fully completed form and EMT payment to bookings@bbrlc.com (payment by cash/debit/credit can be done during pick up).

  • You can also visit us at the Lifestyle Centre to complete the request form (please note: if you stop by and pay by EMT we have to confirm receipt of payment before we can give you the snowshoes)

  • Wait for a confirmation from BBRLC office staff letting you know when and where to pick up your rental.
