I would add Adirondack Paddle 'n Pole west of Albany on Rte. 5. They have a good selection of rentals. Try the link below or use Google. I couldn't find a direct URL. As a general matter, xc-ski areas rent skis appropriate to groomed trails. NNN-BC equipment is scarce in quantity because those who use it purchase it outright. Garnet Hill has NNN-BC, while the Mountaineer prefers 3 pin bindings. I suggest a call to both Garnet Hill and to Paddle'n Pole. Garnet Hill is a 10 to 12 mile round trip detour off Rte. 28 on the way to Indian Lake, while Paddle'n'Pole is a short westbound hop onto Route 5 from the Northway just north of I-90.
