If Outdoor Adventures is closed due to one of the above listed Holidays, the equipment rental for that day is free. For example for the President’s Day Holiday, you can pick up your equipment on Friday, return it to us on Tuesday, and only pay the weekend rental rate. Reservations can be made the Monday of each week for that week’s use.
Current University of Utah students and faculty and staff with current Campus Recreation Services membership with a U card are eligible to rent equipment and receive a 20% discount from the published rates. You must present your valid U Card in order to receive the discounted rate. Please remember to bring your University ID when you reserve or check out equipment.
Non-Members may rent equipment with a Drivers Licence and are asked to pay with a credit card.
For information on becoming a CRS member visit the CRS homepage.
Equipment may be reserved beginning Monday of the week of check-out by paying the full rental fee.
Boat reservations for any time during the river running season may be made beginning on the last Monday of March. To reserve boats or bikes two days rental fee must be paid. The balance is due one week prior to equipment pick-up.
Reservations are possible only for rental periods of two days or longer.
Reservations for one day are not possible.
Equipment cancelled the day of pick up will result in a loss of all fees paid. Other cancelled reservations are subject to a 10% cancellation fee, or a renter may opt for a 100% shop credit for future rental instead of the 90% refund. Boats and bikes have a more specific cancellation policy. See the supplemental contract for details.
Equipment is due by 5:00 pm on the return date. Equipment returned late will be charged a $2.00 service fee plus the additional day or days rental fee for each day late.
Equipment returned soiled or damaged will be assessed a cleaning and/or damage fee. It is the responsibility of the renter to check the condition of the equipment at the time of check out.
