Find Affordable, Reliable Montana Ski Rentals

Nobody wants to feel frustrated by vacation planning, but if you’re not careful, you can end up spending a lot more than you should on Montana ski rentals. Don’t feel overwhelmed by what should be a straightforward rental process. There’s no need to spend hours researching different equipment. Personal sizes and general skill level is usually all that’s needed to choose your rentals. Let us help you understand what’s available and how you can get your equipment at a better price.

Choosing Your Montana Ski Rentals

Keep in mind that if you rent from the resort, you’re going to pay the maximum price possible. The resort knows that you are at the mountain and you’re going to pay for the convenience. If you haven’t reserved your gear before you get to the mountain, take a few minutes to check in town. There may be shops with stock left to rent to you. For example, if you’re skiing at Whitefish, a basic ski package is going to cost $30 per day for multiple days, so $210 per week. However, by going a short distance to the Sportsman Ski Haus, the rental price is only $115 for seven days. That’s almost a hundred dollars you save for a short detour.

Resort rentals can be a problem-solver for those with compact cars, but even then it’s important to plan ahead and make your reservations early. The longer you wait, the more you are generally going to pay. Let us help you book your rentals, and we can save you up to 20 percent. Another thing booking in advance saves you is time. Once your Montana ski rentals are reserved, you should be able to just swing by, get your gear, and head out to the slopes.

Shops vs. Resort-Based Equipment

If the rental shop is charging a hundred dollars less for their rental equipment, isn’t there a difference between the two sets of gear? Not really. Again, the resort is charging you a premium because they are the ski resort and you are paying for the convenience. In the end, can you tell the difference between a pair of Rossignols and a set of K2’s? Probably not, and you’re going to be pleased with your gear no matter where you get it from.

One thing to keep in mind is that you need to rent a helmet. In fact, you may want to purchase your own helmet. On average, a helmet rents for $10 per day. The cost of a brand new helmet is about $80 to $100. Therefore, if you ski more than ten times in your life, the helmet pays for itself. One reason you may want to own your own helmet is that you know where your helmet has been and if there have been any incidents that could compromise its safety. Rental helmets are inspected, but things can be missed.
