FAQs - Aspen, CO Ski and Snowboard Rentals

Packages include skis or snowboard, bindings, boots, and poles (ski).
  • How do you determine the best ski rental shops in Aspen?

    We feature the local Aspen ski shops with the highest reviews on Google/Yelp (at least 4.0) to make sure you have the best rental experience possible.  Our goal is to feature the top local outfitters with the best gear and service.

  • What are the differences between the types of ski rental packages (Demo, Performance, Sport)?


    Demo (or premium) packages are for the advanced skier that wants a specific ski or snowboard rental to match their specific riding style or matching the skis to the terrain. These are high-end, high-performance skis and snowboards.


    Performance packages are intended for intermediate to beginner levels, typically for groomed terrain and generally have a stiffer, more specialized flex pattern, and may be wider in the waist.


    Sport packages are primarily for groomed runs and intended for more beginner level skiers or snowboarders.

    **All packages include downhill skis or snowboard, bindings, boots and poles (ski).

  • What is included in the rental package?

    Packages include downhill skis or snowboard, bindings, boots and poles (ski).

  • How can I save money on ski and snowboard rentals?

    Renting online in advance can save you money. Many outfitters offer online reservation rates that are better than walk-in rates. This helps the shops manage their inventory and plan in advance. It also guarantees the availability of equipment.

  • Can I just rent skis or a snowboard? I don't need the full package.

    Yes, most of our shops also rent just skis or a snowboard. You can rent just the skis, the snowboard or with boots and add-ons like helmets.

    You can also purchase gloves, goggles and more at the shops.
