My wife and I rented skis and poles for four days at Tahoe Dave's. Knowledgeable staff gave us perfect skis for our respective abilities. No hassles, no issues. Decide to ski and extra day? No need to bring them back, just settle up when you're ready to return them. Great selection, good location. Parking is a bit of an issue... More

Stopped here to rent cross country skis for the day. The service was great and everyone had a great day. There were 5 of us and we were in and out in 10 minutes. Everything fit and the equipment was in really good shape for being rentals.

These people are excellent fitting equipment to you needs. They are very experienced and know what they are doing. If you rent for a period of time and return the equipment they offer a credit. Good people and good equipment at a reasonable price.

My wife & I decided on a whim to get on the slopes following more than 20 yrs of NOT skiing. Being a little intimidated, and very ignorant, we were pleasantly surprised when store manager, Vic and his assistant, Jennifer dispelled all our apprehension. They were friendly, professional and understanding. They fit us perfectly with our equipment and made our... More

Great equipment and service. Weather was really bad when we visited, and they handled my early equipment return with true customer appreciation. They treated me like they'd like my repeat business, and they will get it!
