Ski and Snowboard Rentals

We’ve heard lots of different descriptions about what it feels like to walk in ski boots, and “I feel like a robot” is by far the most common.  While ski boots are not the most comfortable footwear around, they should never cause you pain. We are experts at finding you the perfect fit for your family’s lodging needs and that’s why we only work with experts to find you the perfect fitting ski gear.

 

If you’ve never been skiing, it’s important to have someone show you the ropes on how to dress the part so you can feel that much more confident when hitting the slopes.  Our partners are the best around. They will take the time to discuss layering and materials that keep you comfortable.  They will talk about proper boot fit, what to expect, and all of the different varieties of skis and boards available for you to try.


 
 
 

Common Mistakes

  • Layering socks –  Despite what you may have been told, only wear one pair of wool ski socks inside your boot. This allows for maximum blood circulation to you feet, which equals warmth.
  • If you wear jeans, you’ll likely find yourself wet and cold.  Save them for dinnertime.
  • Do yourself a favor and wear a helmet. We think this one is self-explanatory…
  • Cotton anything – Cotton against your skin will absorb moisture and make you cold all day. Look for Synthetic and wool fabrics for warmth and comfort.
