Dartmouth Outing Club

Book Your Cabin

All cabins are available for use all year round. Reserve up to six months in advance (and note that the "reserved" page fills up so quickly six months before hunting season that "cabin fever" takes on a whole new meaning!)

Moosilauke Lodge

Gear Rental

Why buy expensive equipment when you can rent? Bicycles, ice skates, snowboards, snowshoes, skis (Alpine and cross-country), tents, packs, sleeping bags, portable stoves—check here for your outdoors needs.

Destinations off-campus but nearby

Skiway

The Dartmouth Skiway

Whether you are a skiing novice or plan to train for the Olympics, you can find the right terrain in the Skiway's 100 acres and two mountains.

The Dartmouth Cross Country Ski Center

The Dartmouth Cross Country Ski Center maintains over twenty-five kilometers of groomed cross country ski trails on Oak Hill and Garipay Field in Hanover, New Hampshire, as well as the ice on Occom Pond for ice skating. The Cross Country Ski Center has two facilities. One is based out of the DOC House on Occom Pond, which provides equipment rentals for skiing, skating, and other winter activities, as well as group and private instruction. The other facility is at Oak Hill, located in the north-east corner of Hanover. To get there, go north on Route 10 past the Golf Course, turn right at the Co-op gas station, then take a sharp left after the road turns to dirt — park in the first lot on the right.

Ropes Course
