Renting your gear during your vacation at Northstar at Tahoe is a smart play. After all, traveling with skis can cost upwards of $200 per trip, not to mention the initial cost of purchasing your skis in the first place. But even though you’re saving money on the rental, there are other ways to save money as well. Here are some tips on how to make your dollar stretch even farther when you get your Northstar at Tahoe ski rentals.

Getting Gear For Less

It’s important to save money on your vacation. After all, the less you spend on things like rentals and lodging, the more you have to spend on more fun things. To save the most on your Northstar at Tahoe ski rentals, just remember to plan as far in advance as you can. When you know you’re going skiing, check with us. With our help, we can save you up to 20 percent on your ski gear, whether you’re after a basic package or looking to ride the slopes on a demo set.

If you forget to reserve your ski rental in advance, don’t pay the window prices at the resort. That price is the highest price you’re going to pay in the area. You can still save money, however. Take the window price at Northstar at Tahoe. You’re going to pay $67 per day for a basic ski package. However, in nearby Truckee, you can get a basic ski rental for $29 per day. If you plan on skiing longer than 3 days, the daily rate drops to $26.10. That’s a huge chunk of change that you can save.

What About the Gear?

In case you’re wondering if there’s a difference in gear quality between your resort Northstar at Tahoe ski rentals versus what you find at local rental shops, there isn’t. Shops offer anything from top of the line skis for demo ski packages to introductory skis for their basic packages. The skis are usually only one or two years old, and in many cases, the stock is changed out every year. The reason resort prices are so much higher is because of the convenience factor. Your Northstar at Tahoe ski rentals can be delivered straight to your room, but you’re paying  more than double the local store price for that convenience.

One thing to always remember when you’re getting your ski rental at Northstar at Tahoe is to get your helmet. Helmets aren’t included in most rental packages because a lot of skiers find it advantageous to buy their own helmets. This can be a very frugal purchase, especially if you’re going to ski more than a couple of weeks in your life. Still, it doesn’t matter if you buy or rent a helmet, you just want to be sure to wear one out on the slopes.
