Vail brings in nearly 6 million visitors per year, and it's easy to see why. Beautiful mountains, amazing skiing, and a great atmosphere all make Vail the best ski destination.
Preparing for your resort vacation in Vail will bring an important question: should you buy or rent ski equipment? Ski rentals used to have a bad reputation of being solely flimsy, old equipment. That's no longer the case though, Bridge Street Ski Haus stocks the newest and best ski equipment you can get.
Let's go through some of the major benefits of renting ski equipment for your next ski trip.
It's no secret that skiing is an expensive sport. Between clothing, skis, boots, poles, helmets, and goggles, buying your own equipment can cost you thousands of dollars. It will be especially expensive if you're buying equipment for your whole family.
If you decide to rent ski equipment, you'll be charged per day for boots, skis, and poles. The cost per day will depend on the quality and brand of the equipment you choose, but it will cost you less than buying everything yourself.
Unless you are an avid skier, dropping thousands of dollars on equipment for only a couple weeks of vacation might not be the best call.
You'll be saving money by renting, and oftentimes you can save even more with special deals or promo codes on our website.
Reserving your gear ahead of time in bundles or packages can often save you money.
If you buy your own equipment, you'll likely be using it for many years in order to get your money's worth. While this can be great the year you buy it, this equipment will soon become outdated.
Ski technology is constantly evolving: new skis, poles, and boots are made each year to keep the equipment innovative and high quality. Here at Bridgestreet Ski Haus, you have the opportunity to try out the best equipment the industry has to offer.
Buying new equipment every year isn't really feasible; renting gives you the chance to try out the latest and greatest stuff without emptying the bank.
Renting is also a great idea for someone looking to make a purchase in the near future. You can try out all different brands, types of skis and poles, boot sizes, and even different colors, in order to see what suits you. This way you can actually take the stuff for a test run before taking the plunge and buying it.
Skis are bulky and can be hard to get from place to place. With the closest rental shop in Vail to Gondola One, renting with us will make things much more convenient for you and your family on your next skiing vacation.
Whether you are flying or driving to Vail for a ski vacation, renting will remove the hassle of transporting multiple pairs of skis, boots, and poles.
If you are flying, you'll have to check your ski equipment. This can be costly; most airlines charge for every checked bag, and for each person's equipment you would be checking a minimum of two bags. And since skis are quite large and bulky, you might face extra fees to check them.
If you're driving, you won't necessarily have to spend extra money to transport skis you own. However, you would need a somewhat larger car, or at least a compartment on the top of your car, to fit all of the equipment as well as your luggage.
By choosing to rent ski equipment, these dilemmas would disappear. You would be able to arrive in Vail, come to Bridge Street Ski Haus, and immediately start skiing. Renting is more convenient and will make traveling much easier and cheaper.
Besides travel, if you buy your equipment, you have to think about how you would get your skis to and from the mountain. This would likely involve a van and heavy ski bags. At the end of the day when you're tired and hungry, you'll have to lug your skis all the way home.
By renting, you won't have to worry about any of that. You'll be able to show up at the mountain, rent your skis, and get started right away. At the end of the day, you can store your equipment in one of our rental lockers.
Renting equipment doesn't have to be a hassle. With online reservations, deals, and helpful employees, it will be easy. This can also save you time when you get to the mountain. Make your reservation online and you can easily get all of your reserved equipment without any long lines or hassles.
Keeping all of your equipment in a hotel room can get cluttered, not to mention all of the cold, wet snow you would be dragging in. You're in luck though, as Bridgestreet offers overnight storage for your equipment.
This will make your life much simpler; you won't have to worry about where your equipment is. All you have to worry about is whether to hit the double black or not.
Getting equipment for your next Vail adventure doesn't have to be extremely expensive or stressful. You can suit up with the latest, coolest equipment while still spending less than you would have if you bought it all yourself.
Renting equipment is easy and it will make your life simpler, allowing you to enjoy your amazing vacation in beautiful Vail.
