To protect our employees and customers during the Covid-19 outbreak, we have temporarily closed all REI stores. Because of this, we aren’t able to accept ski rental returns yet. Check back here for updates!

Un-outgrowable gear

As your snow kiddo grows, their gear can grow with ‘em. No need to buy the next size up every season. (We have a limited number of adult skis too!)

Rent once. Ski all season.

Once you’ve picked up your gear, it’s yours for the season. No more waiting in rental lines or dealing with all the unknowns of slope-side rentals. You also get complimentary waxes all winter long (up to once per day).

Save money (and closet space)

Get skis, boots and poles for just $170 for kids, and $280 for adults. And when ski season’s done, you’ll get a bunch of storage space back in your life—just in time for spring cleaning!

Pricing for next season might differ and will be announced in the fall.

    • The seasonal ski rental program is a flat cost for the entire season, so there are no refunds for a partial season or early returns.
