Renting snow equipment is generally the recommended option for beginner skiers and snowboarders alike. With renting you can familiarize yourself with the products and see what works best for you before you commit to anything. There are many varieties of brands and styles to try out, where you can learn your own individual preferences. For more experienced winter sport enthusiasts, it may be best to invest in your own equipment. Some experienced skiers and snowboarders still prefer to rent for convenience as well as the ability to alternate between snow equipment for different mountain conditions.
At Alpine Ski Shop we make it easy for you to rent your ski gear rentals and snowboard gear rentals with our online booking system. As long as you book your rentals within 24 hours prior to your arrival, our team will have your rentals ready and waiting, saving you time to spend on winter fun.

the right snow equipment?
There are skis for every experience level, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Beginner skis are usually softer and more flexible which makes turning at lower speeds more efficient. Intermediate skis have a wooden core which helps with stability and making more precise and accurate turns at higher speeds. Advanced skis are for experts who have been accustomed to diverse and challenging terrains for years.
Ski socks are quite different from your average socks, and to prevent blistering and excess moisture ski socks can help. Ski socks also are known to keep your feet warmer than average socks. Many times people try to wear warm thick socks or double up on socks which is one of the worst things you can do to your feet.
Snowboards come in different lengths, shapes and sizes for different skill levels. Beginners are best with choosing an all around snowboard for any terrain, while more advanced snowboarders can choose boards specifically for different conditions.
Helmets keep skiers and snowboarders safe as well as warm on the slopes. Regardless of your skill level, it is always recommended to wear a helmet to reduce the risk of injury. Helmets come in all shapes and sizes from a half shell to a full face helmet. You can be measured by a professional in the shop to find the best fit.
Ski goggles protect your eyes from the winter conditions outside, as well as support your vision while you are skiing or snowboarding. Just like anything else, there are different goggles for different skill levels, conditions, and times of day or night. Cylindrical lenses are the most affordable, but you don’t get as much of a peripheral view, and aren’t as protected from glare. Spherical lenses are an upgrade, where you get a wide peripheral view, and more glare protection.
A ski mask is a face covering used to protect your face, exposing partial facial features depending on the design. Ski masks are worn under helmets and provide the skier or snowboarder with an extra level of protection from the outdoor conditions.
Whether you want to rent or purchase, Alpine Ski has the best brands and knows their stuff. I’m always looking for cool new ski clothes, and this has been my go to shop for years.
Don’t think twice. If you’re going to Camelback for the day, this is the best place to pick up some skis and snowboards at really low prices. I didn’t order ahead and they still had everything I wanted.
