Are you new to skiing or snowboarding? Do you live in a warm climate where you’ll never get use of ski gear again? Are your kiddos sizing up each winter? Instead of wasting money BUYING all new equipment, just rent your ski equipment at your destination. There are also cool services like Kit Lender that allow you to rent warm and cozy apparel without long-term parka commitments. But, it pays to plan ahead and reserve your gear online in advance to get the best prices.
