Seasonal Ski Rentals

Our 2019–2020 ski rental program wrapped up for the season in February.

2019–2020 Gear Returns

Due to temporary store closures as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, renters for the 2019-2020 season are able to keep their seasonal ski rentals for good, at no additional charge. For those that do not want to keep the gear, returns will be accepted at participating stores during the month of September 2020. For more details and additional options see FAQS for returning gear.


Future Seasons

Due to the current environment, we may not be running seasonal ski rentals in 2020. However, we are looking forward to 2021 and hope to see you then! In the meantime, check out our daily rental options or shop REI.com or Used Gear selections if you are looking to own.

Return Window: September 1 through September 30

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.
