The packages tab on our web site describes each package that we offer.   We  will also be happy to talk you through the best choice when you arrive to pick up your equipment.  

Q5. What is included with my rental? 
Ski package includes skis, boots, bindings, and poles.  Snowboard package includes board, binding w/ leash, and boots.

Q6. What is a DIN setting? 
This is a setting on your ski bindings that is determined by your height, weight, age, shoe size, and skier ability level.  It is very important that you supply us with the right information so that this can be calculated correctly.

Q7. Is your rental equipment well maintained and in good condition?  We take pride in keeping our equipment in the best shape possible throughout the season.  All equipment is tuned and bindings are tested prior to season opening yearly.  And if the equipment is reserved either by an individual or a group, it will be freshly waxed!

We rent helmets for both adults and children.  We also have a great selection in our retail department in a wide range of prices and styles for everyone.

We offer equipment breakage insurance that will cover breakage under normal usage.  However, if the equipment is lost, stolen, or damaged beyond normal usage you will be responsible to reimburse at the equipment’s full value.

Q10. Do you offer equipment rentals for the season? 
We do offer season rentals for both skis and snowboards at all locations.  The equipment is yours to keep upon renting until April 15th.  You can bring it in at any time for a trade in size or repair.  Please contact the store nearest you for more details.

Q11. What is your reservation refund policy? 
If you cancel your reservation at least 24 hours in advance we will refund your deposit.

Q12. What is skier type? 
A description of each skier type can be found on the reservation tab on our web site.  This information is provided by you, and helps us determine your desired setting on your bindings.

Q13Do I have to have a parent or adult with me to rent equipment? 
A release form signed by a parent/guardian is required for anyone renting under the age of 18.  The form can be downloaded from the Reserve page on our web site.  Scroll to the bottom of the page and print the Rental Liability Release.  A valid ID is required and needs presented when picking up your rental equipment.  The person showing that ID will also be required to sign the rental agreement.

Q14. Can equipment be picked up the night before my first day renting?
