Homewood is a great place to sling your skis and enjoy some fresh powder. If you’re considering visiting to try out the runs, you’re probably wondering what the prices for Homewood ski rentals are like. Well, there’s no question that you can save money by renting, especially considering the cost of traveling with skis. Furthermore, the resort has a great selection of skis available for you to rent. But don’t discount going off-site for your Homewood ski rentals. You’d be surprised at how much you can save by doing so.

Resort vs. Off-Site

Getting Homewood ski rentals is a great way to save money, and you can save even more when you remember to reserve your gear ahead of time. As soon as you know you’re headed to Homewood, check with us. We’ve got the relationships with the places you can get your Homewood ski rentals and can get you at least a 20 percent savings. You can also guarantee that you aren’t going to pay the walk up rate for your Homewood ski rentals. There’s no reason to spend more than you have to.

If you want to save even more, consider getting your Homewood ski rentals off site. But don’t forget to shop around, because even the rates off site can widely vary. As an example, if you get your gear from West Shore Sports and you can get a basic package and only pay 154 for a five day rental. However, Willard’s offers a comparable deal for only $141, and Tahoe Dave’s gives a five day rental for $133. As we pointed out, prices can vary, but with our help, you can make sure you aren’t paying more than you have to.

A Couple of Packing Tips

Whether you’ve been skiing every winter of your life or you’re just starting out, there are some necessities that should make it into your luggage. While everyone remembers their après ski clothes and the layers to wear on the slopes, don’t forget to pack these essentials.

  • Goggles – You’re going to need these to keep your eyes protected from snow and ice.
  • Lip balm and Sunscreen – You wouldn’t think that snow and sunscreen go together, but you’re still going to be exposed to a lot of sunlight from above and below (snow scatters and reflects the sun).
  • Lotion – Wind, sun, and dry air are going to do a number on your skin. Get some good lotion to help keep your skin in shape.
  • Pain Relievers (Advil/Tylenol/Aleve) – After a long day on the slopes, you’ll thank us for this suggestion.

One key way to save money on these things is to make sure to buy them locally before you leave for your vacation. A small bottle of lotion that costs $3 at the local superstore could end up costing twice or even three times that amount in a resort town.
