It’s about time to hit the slopes this year! High in the Rockies, fresh powder provides some seriously awesome opportunities to get your skiing fix. The first thing you’ll need to get started is equipment! If you don’t have your own ski gear or don’t have space for it to travel with you, you’ll want to check out these Winter Park ski rentals. Once you rent your equipment from one of these ski rental shops, you’ll be ready to get speeding down the mountain!

What to Look for in a Ski Rental

First things first, what do you need to know before you rent your equipment from the shops in Winter Park? Keep in mind that cheaper is not always necessarily better—if you’re getting equipment for a lower cost, be sure that you’re not sacrificing quality for price. Make sure to read all policies closely; it could save you some money and perhaps time. In addition, try to rent equipment that is newer, as this ensures that it will work properly and safely.

It is also a good practice to rent from a shop whose employees are knowledgeable so they can fit you with the right gear. Is the shop one who takes care to measure your boot size? Well-fitting boots are one of the most important components of a good day on the slopes. Is the staff willing to explain to you the difference between different kinds of skis? Are they transparent about how they maintain their equipment? These are all important things to consider!
