Ski gear - where to rent or buy

Rentals

Many of the managed ski areas have rental gear on site. Phone ahead to make sure that your size is available.
Their locations are shown on our map showing rental locations - look for marker balloons that are light blue (ski stores) or white-topped (ski areas). If you're hoping to rent skate skis, those are only available from the managed ski centers where xc skiing is the main business - phone ahead to check what's available.
