Renting your ski equipment when you go on vacation at Squaw Valley is a great way to stretch your vacation dollar. Renting equipment has become a great alternative to buying your own gear, especially when you factor in the increased costs of flying with your skis. But even though you save a lot of money renting, there are ways you can save even more. Here are some tips on how to save a bundle on your Squaw Valley ski rentals.

Gear For Less

If you want to save as much money as possible, make sure to reserve your gear as early as you can. As soon as you know you’re going to go skiing, check with us. We can make sure you save up to 20 percent on all your Squaw Valley ski rentals. Getting your gear early also will make sure you get the best selection possible. If you don’t reserve your gear, don’t despair. There are other ways to save money on your rentals. Just make sure you don’t pay the window walk up rates at the resort.

As a comparison, the Inn Shop of Squaw Valley has a daily walk up rate of $41 for Squaw Valley rentals. There is a discount for longer multiday rentals, so seven days comes out to $211. If you go to Tahoe Dave’s Skis and Boards, a seven day rental comes out to $185. While $25 per person isn’t a huge savings, it’s still money that you can keep in your pocket or spend on something else.

Things to Remember

You should keep in mind that the gear you get from ski rental shops is comparable to what you get from the resorts. Whether you’re getting basic gear that will help you hug the slopes or trying out the latest styles with a demo package, the quality will be comparable. What you should keep in mind is that with our help, you’re going to save a bundle on your Squaw Valley rentals.

Speaking of gear, don’t forget your socks and your helmet. When it comes to socks, don’t think that your ordinary white cotton socks will cut it. You need a pair of merino wool or synthetic ski socks. This ensures a proper fit for your ski boots and will keep your feet warm and dry.

A ski helmet is another essential piece of gear. You may choose to buy a helmet, simply because it will be cheaper in the long run. This is especially true if you’re going to go skiing more than a couple of weeks in your life. Whether you choose to rent or buy a helmet, just make sure to wear one when you’re on the slopes.
