Steamboat Ski Equipment Rentals

Heading for Ski Town USA? Then you'll need to know about Steamboat ski equipment rentals. Here's some info you may find helpful before strapping an outfit on to the bottom of your feet.

For you novices like I once was, there's a lot more that goes in to deciding what's right for you than you think. First of all, common sense stuff here: accurate information about your skier type, height, weight, age and ski boot sole length will be gathered by the rental shop to determine the release and retention settings of your ski bindings to maximize your fun, and to avoid any risk of injury.

The friendly outfitters at the Steamboat ski equipment rentals shop will use three category types to determine a package that's right for you: Type I, II, and III. Type I skiers tend to be cautious and travel at slower speeds on easy to moderate slopes, and will prefer a lighter release or retention setting. That's o.k., that's where a bum like me got started.

Type II skiers are moderate skiers, taking to a variety of speeds and terrain, and will require an average release/retention setting. You know, the common variety.

Type III folks are the rowdy ones who just crave the rush of slamming the steeper, challenging slopes and will prefer a better-than-average release and retention setting. Hey, there's something for everyone at Steamboat. Bar none.

And you'll be glad to know that Steamboat ski equipment rentals utilize the finest products available. Such as high performance Rossignol Bandit and Axiom Super Twin skis for all-mountain skiing. The Sport Super Side-Cut is a wider ski for easy navigation and features the Rossignol Freeride and Rock X skis. For the Junior in your party there's Rossignol Comp J skis with Salomon and Technica ski boots.

Helmets are available for children and adults.

For the superpipe going snowboarder in the family, packages feature Rossignol boards with freestyle bindings for juniors and adults.

And by the way, at Steamboat Kids 12 and under rent FREE for every five days a parent rents. Some restrictions apply.

For Teens 13-18, ask about the 25% discount on all rentals, except for helmets.
