membership and rentals
HOC members have access to all gear room rentals. The membership fee is $10/year.
Ten dollars a year doesn’t get you much these days, unless you spend it on an Outing Club membership. (I can remember when ten dollars would get you a day’s skiing at Killington, a lobster dinner, a new set of bamboo poles and there’d STILL be change to go to the moving picture show.)
Membership in the Outing Club entitles you to all available rentals, there are no 'item fees'.
Rentals are on a two week contract. We'll email you after two weeks and if you want to keep your item, and we don't need it for a trip, let us know and we'll extend for another fortnight.

We have recently started offering a short-term ‘borrow’ of off-road bikes. We have four ‘fat bikes’ and 12 mountain bikes. They are great for an afternoon in the Glen (although not the Root Glen) or a lunchtime fitness loop. Helmets are provided and must be worn.
If you stop by the Glen House during our gear rental hours you can simply leave your Hill Card and pick it back up when you return your bike!
