Customer Testimonials

  •   These guys are great! They make it super easy to get all the gear - even when we had a shitload of kids with us. Also, the gear is good quality. I highly recommend!

      Awesome service and decent choice of equipment. They hooked me up with a good board and made sure I had the right set up for the spring snow conditions. They also gave my friend some juice for her board for free. Good deal for 4 days and you pay for 3.

      What a great place to pick up rental equipment.  I called to check their rates and they were less than other locations and had far better equipment.  Super convenient. We rented really great skis at a very fair price.  Super easy in and out.  Get better equipment then standard stuff you will be glad you did.  Great friendly staff.  We will come back when we are in the area again.

  •   These guys are amazing. We dropped in to see if they could help us with a problem with the bindings on our new snowshoes (not their rental equipment -- our own stuff) and all the guys joined in to figure it out and fix it for us, no charge. Ceasar, you are our HERO!

      I wish there was a 6th star! Triston and Anthony have the best rental store in South Lake Tahoe. All in all, this rental store had promptly helped me with fixing my daughter and I snowboards in only less than 30 mins! I appreciate their customers service and their hospitality.

      We recently rented skis, boots and poles here for two different days in the same week. The staff is super helpful and knowledgeable and we felt well taken care of. They saved our paperwork from the first day so when we came back 3 days later we were in and out even faster than the 1st day. Rates are competitive and if you check in on Yelp they'll give you a 10% discount on the rental gear. I also bought a pair of sunglasses since I'd forgotten my ski glasses at a very reasonable price. The equipment was all fairly new and worked out very well for us on both days. Highly recommend renting your ski or snowboard equipment here if you have a need to.
