No equipment rentals:

Based on our first week of operation (12/18-12/24), concerns about too many people arriving at Great Brook and specifically about crowding at the trailhead require that the ski touring center temporarily cease equipment rentals.  Sales of day passes and season passes will continue as usual.  We regret that this restriction will prevent many from being able to ski but, in order to maintain safe conditions and keep the facility in operation, we must limit attendance.  Serving only those who already have equipment will be the most effective way to regulate turnout while honoring commitments made to those who have purchased season passes.  This policy will be reassessed as the winter progresses.


The huge inventory of ski equipment for rent at Great Brook includes skis, boots, and poles for all ages and sizes. The waxless touring skis can suit toddlers and all adults, and skating skis are also available. A fleet of comfortable Salomon Profil boots ranges in size from children's 9.5 (European size 27) to men's 14 (European size 50).

Other equipment for rent includes:

  • Pulk Sled:  Children too small to ski can be pulled by parents in this special sled.  Protected from the elements and buckled with a 3-point safety harness, kids can safely sit (and sleep!) while you ski.
  • Snowshoes:  For those not interested in skiing, Great Brook offers snowshoes to explore the park's many ungroomed areas.  (Please note that snowshoeing is not permitted on the machine-groomed ski trails.)
