Four Reasons to Rent Skis/Board at Vail CO

When hitting the slopes at Vail Colorado this season, you may want to consider renting your boards, or skis instead of buying or bringing your own. In the long run renting could save you money, and it is far more convenient too. Let's explore four reasons why you should rent your gear at Vail this season!


1. Rock The Latest Skis/Snowboards

You can demo as many skis or boards a day as you want at Bridge Street Skihaus at Vail. New gear is expensive, and every year there is more of it to choose from. Renting gives you the ability to ride the latest boards and skis without having to shell out a lot of money to buy them new.

If you are an avid skier or boarder this is also a perfect way to try out a bunch of different gear before you decide to make a purchase. Rentals are also perfect for people who only hit the slopes a few times a year or maybe only once every couple of years. You take advantage of the latest gear technology without having to own and maintain your equipment. You don't have to worry about maintenance or transportation either. In fact, you don't have to worry about a thing. Rentals make your trip to the slopes so much easier. Spend less time dealing with logistics and more time enjoying the slopes.


2. No Gear Transportation Hassles

Rentals are perfect for travelers! Getting your skis or boards from home to the Vail can be a major hassle, especially if you are flying. Lugging large, bulky items through airports and paying the extra fees for them to be checked, then having to deal with the uncertainty that your checked items will even arrive at your final destination is far more hassle than it's worth. Especially when you can just rent gear when you get to the mountains. Renting is far simpler, and at the end of the day you have nothing to worry about or keep track of.

Lugging ski equipment through the airport can be a nightmare. 

3. Free Overnight Ski/Board Storage

Wouldn't it be great if you could just leave your boots, poles, skis, and boards, at the slopes in a safe place instead of having to carry them off the mountain and load them into the car and bring them back to your lodging? Renting from Bridge Street makes hauling all your gear back at the end of the day a thing of the past.

You can leave your rented gear at Bridge Street Skihaus overnight for free in a safe, locked space just steps off the mountain. (We'll put your boots on a boot warmer for you so they're nice and toasty in the morning.) This makes getting started everyday super simple so you spend less time getting situated and more time flying down the slopes!


4. Mere Steps to Vail's Gondola 1

Bridge Street Skihaus is literally 50 feet from Vail’s Gondola 1. In combination with free overnight storage, the proximity to the gondola ensures you will spend more time on the slopes and less time dragging gear around the mountain. Plus, who wants to walk in ski boots any further than they have to?

Gear rentals make your ski vacation at Vail a breeze. You won't have to worry about whether or not your gear still fits comfortably, you won't have to worry about getting your gear to the mountain and resort, you won't have to pay extra fees for gear transportation, you get free overnight storage, and you are right at Gondola 1. While you are planning your next trip to Vail, look into all of the benefits that rentals provide. Rentals will make your next ski trip the easiest time you have ever had. Plus, you will save yourself money and most importantly time on the slopes!
