Please note - we are not providing test-fit socks this season.  Bring your own ski socks for the most accurate boot fitting experience!

Reservation Information

Stop by between October 15th and December 15th for pre-season equipment sizing.  We'll keep your family's info on file - after that, reservations are just a phone call away!
Walk-In Rentals

Walk-in group sizes for XC ski and snowshoe equipment will be limited to five renters per group or family.  For groups larger than five users, please contact us ahead of time to coordinate multiple separate fittings.  Large groups will need to come in at separate times to pre-size and reserve equipment.

Walk-in fittings will be available after 12pm the day before you plan to use the equipment - the final fitting of the day will begin no later than 4:30pm.  Equipment may be picked up the night before for next-day's use.  Same-day fittings the morning you plan to use the equipment will be difficult to accommodate.  Please plan ahead!

We will do our best to accommodate walk-in XC ski and snowshoe rentals for daily use.  Please understand the space in our rental fitting area is limited and our fitting capacity is capped at 4 people from the same group (or family) at one time.  Expect longer fitting times than usual.  We encourage renters planning to use our XC ski or snowshoe equipment this season to come in between 10/15-12/15 to be pre-sized for equipment.

Walk-in Rental Rates:

  • Same as Daily Rental rates for XC ski and snowshoe equipment
