Frequently Asked Rental Questions

I have my own boots. Can I just rent the skis?

Yes, but individually rented equipment will be same as set price.

If I take my own ski boots, can you adjust the ski for my boots?

For ski boots, provide your sole size (not shoe size), a 3 digit number (ex. 305mm) located on sole or side of your boots. For snowboard, provide your boot size. Binding will be adjusted accordingly.
Binding setting may vary depending upon delivery location. Please see below.

Courier Delivery Service

We deliver equipment with your binding adjusted to the sole size provided. You will be responsible to finalize your adjustment.
