The Grand Canyon trip was awesome! I took way too many photos. This should be on everyone's bucket list.
Unfortunately I had a bad experience with a outdoor rec personnel the equipment rental in particular, so as I finally got an answers on the phone I started speaking to a lady trying to get some answers about a canopy, she was very short and rude and as I was talking she said hold on.. put the phone down talking to someone else and said “ oh geez some people!” When she got back on the phone I proceeded to ask questions price, what I need to reserve? All the while she kept saying yes! Yes! Umhum! I said again price?? No answer I asked her name and she hung up!! I called back a gentleman answered and I told him what just to place, then said “I’m not surprised!” I asked what her name was he said Joann, he took care of what I needed and I was thankful! But to have someone treat Soldiers/Family members like this? Soldiers who served/serving there country?? And to think it happens often ??? “ “Get advice and learn from the experiences of the staff.?” “get a group of friends and work with the staff to create a custom trip that everyone will enjoy and make great memories.”??? 😞 sorry couldn’t find a website or email to address this
Cody, are we on for the sunset ride tomorrow?!
Holiday open house
are you still offering the whitewater rafting in July and August?
I'm searching for two runners to complete my team in Aspen/Snowmass next weekend (Friday and Saturday 8/9 Jun) at the Ragnar trail race. If you don't know about Ragnar, it is an 8 person relay race, overnight, and each runner will complete 14 miles spread over three loops (with a break between each loop). I thought the KAFB outdoor rec community might have interested runners. Long drive from ABQ (8hrs), but it will be epic...let me know!
We had SUCH a great time on the Thirsty Thursday tour! Alec rang in his birthday and Sharon had a blast seeing downtown Albuquerque in warm weather. Thank you, Cody, for organizing such a good time!

Outdoor Rec has many great services and rentals for anyone to explore Albuquerque and enjoy the outdoors of New Mexico. Excitement, Challenge, And Education...That's What Air Force Outdoor Recreation Is All About

What we do

Outdoor Recreation

Kirtland Outdoor Recreation has many exciting opportunities and physical challenges for KAFB outdoor enthusiasts. They offer services and rentals to assist in your outdoor explorations and adventures in the beautiful desert and mountains of New Mexico.

There are many exhilarating Outdoor Adventure trips regularly offered to choose from, with monthly activities for anyone with base access. Outdoor Adventure Programs include: ski trips, scuba-diving classes, horseback riding, bicycle trips, brewery tours, hikes, paddling adventures, climbing programs and other thrilling outdoor excursions.

Get great advice from the knowledgeable staff, and take advantage of great rental equipment for all of your outdoor adventures. Discover the large inventory of party equipment, lawn and garden, watersports, ski and winter sporting equipment, team building supplies, and camping gear.

You can even get a group of friends together and work with the staff to create a custom trip that everybody will enjoy. Groups must have eight or more people plus a date for the trip. Outdoor Recreation Programmers will then help plan the full details of your made-to-order trip and how much it will cost.

The Boulder Lab has officially opened and is located in Outdoor Recreation. If you are an advanced climber or are just starting out, the Boulder Lab has something for everyone and is outfitted with a gym, games, and a private team building room.

Visit the Ski and Bike Shop for first class maintenance and services offered and check out the bicycle rental fleet including road and mountain bikes.

"There's no limit on how much you can check out, and you can check things out year-round," Director Joni VanMeir said.

"Having people come here to research camping trips is great because if they have any questions, we have programmers here to help answer them. Most of us fish, hike, camp, or bike, so there's a good chance we've been to the area." VanMeir said.

Outdoor Recreation has everything you need to start or continue a lifetime of adventure. Begin your adventure by signing up for an outdoor trip or renting the gear to create your own."

Outdoor Recreation is located in Building 20170 Gibson Ave
