Snowshoe Rentals

Something new and very exciting is coming to Voisey’s Brook Park: Snowshoe Rentals!!! ❄️

Take an unguided snowshoe adventure on over 5km of trails, see the various wildlife that live in the park, and enjoy the outdoors. Thank you to the Government of NL’s Community Healthy Living Fund for their support of the program, which will see residents in Portugal Cove – St. Philip’s spend time outdoors this winter!

Weekend rentals are available by pre-booking only through eServices. Rentals are for up to a three hour period and begin at 10:00am, with the last rental at 2:00pm returned at 5:00pm. Each pair of snowshoes costs $5.00 to rent.

Snowshoes will be available on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the winter season, beginning on the weekend of Saturday, February 6th – Sunday, February 7th, 2021. Rental booking will be open through eServices on Friday, January 29th, 2021 at 9:00am.

* All weekend rentals must be pre-booked through eServices before 4:00pm on the Friday before use. Rentals cannot be rented directly from the Voisey’s Brook Park hut. *

Registration Overview:

  • Registration takes place online through eServices and it is completed by time slot and snow shoe size (limited quantities available)
  • For example, if you were to rent snowshoes for a party of three, you would select the time slot, then select which size snowshoes to add to the cart:
    • 16/17 inch (children’s) – 40 to 80 lbs
    • 19 inch – 50 to 90 lbs
    • 21 inch – 80 to 120 lbs
    • 25 inch – 110 to 160 lbs
    • 28 inch – 150 to 190 lbs
    • 30 inch – 160 to 210 lbs
    • 36 inch – 210 to 260 lbs
  • In this example, since you are renting three pairs for $5.00 each, your total would be $15.00
  • Once you finalize checkout in your cart and pay for your rental, information will be sent to your email for details on pick up
  • Pickups will occur out of the Voisey’s Brook Park Hut during your scheduled time
