Anticipation is building for opening day at Vail, and this is the time to plan your Vail ski vacation. You have chosen to visit the finest ski destination in North America, and now it’s about preparing for two things: the days on the mountain, and the nights in town.
As far as gear, Bridge Street Ski Haus has Vail ski rentals covered, with high-quality daily and seasonal rental equipment, clothing and more, along with the most convenient storage lockers in town, steps away from Gondola One. Along with making tracks, choosing the right accommodations in Vail can make for an outstanding ski vacation.
Bridge Street is partners with a variety of Vail lodging providers, in order to offer travelers unparalleled convenience and accessibility. Guests who stay with these partners can take advantage of the Bridge Street Ski Haus experience, storing gear at the shop and much more.
Booking a vacation stay with a Bridge Street partner means that guests can stroll to the shop in street shoes, change clothes and gear up in the store. There’s no need to join hundreds of fellow skiers and boarders in the “Bridge Street Shuffle,” with hands full of gear, bags and more, walking across the bridge into the base area.
Think about boots; great on the mountain, but not the most comfortable option for walking around town. Book with a Bridge Street partner and your clean, dry, warm gear is waiting each morning, just feet from the lift. Expert ski technicians are available to fit boots and tune gear before you hit the slopes.
At the end of the day, enjoy hot chocolate, coffee, cookies, and brownies in the shop before changing into street clothes, ready for après ski. Need gloves, goggles, a base layer or more? Find it all in the shop.
