Outdoor Equipment Rental & Bike/Ski Shop
Located at the east entry to Dixon Recreation Center, the Adventure Leadership Institute™ includes outdoor equipment rental; maps; river and snow reports; and the bike, ski, and snowboard shop.
Equipment rental is available to all RecSports students and members. We offer equipment for a number of activities, including backpacking, ice climbing, mountaineering, rafting, rock climbing, bouldering and more.
Gear rental is available for both personal and class use. RecSports students and members have full access to rental equipment. Select items are made available to the OSU community as well.
