How To Get The Most From Your Steamboat Ski Rental Experience
[toggle title=”PERFORMANCE RENTAL” open=”yes”]Our performance rental skis for men, women and juniors are just that, made so you can perform at your best even if you are not the next Bode Miller. Our gear is purchased to enhance your experience and our two buckle Live Fit Atomic Boots are an awardwinning and patented technology that will ensure your boots have never felt better or been easier to get in and out of. Our Atomic Performance lineup is designed and built for beginners and aspiring skiers.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”PREMIUM RENTAL” open=”no”]We have more than 30 pairs of men’s, women’s and junior demo skis in the store (see page 28 and 29). We match your height, weight and skiing ability to the conditions to ensure the skis you have on your feet are the best suited for you and the conditions. If the conditions do change have no fear because our Premium Rental includes the ability to swap out skis as you please. Our expert staff will help you decide what is best, what is worth trying and what may be worth buying if you are interested in taking a pair home with you.
We also have the patented and award-winning AIR SHEL by Tecnica. Our PREMIUM boots are only Tecnica and the air shell is exactly what it sounds like: An inner core that fills with air to make your fit as snug and comfortable as possible (the air helps your feet stay warmer, as well).[/toggle]
