We have rented from this place for several years, and here are the reasons we keep coming back: 1. Location is very nice - very close to the Vista Bahn gondola (lift 1 and Vail). This makes for easy start and end to the day....More

Highly recommend for anyone needing to rent skis while in Vail. The location is perfect- right next to Gondola 1, so minimal hauling your equipment around town if you take advantage of their very reasonable overnight storage rates. Good selection of equipment and since I...More

I dropped my skis off for a wax & sharpen for approx. $40. I picked them up the next morning. Prompt friendly service. My friends who spend 4 weeks in Vail recommended this place. My skis were good all week with the current conditions.

Going down the stairs to Vista Bahn Ski Rental is like taking a trip back to Vail in 1970. It's the only place in Vail that still tunes skis by hand and the service is still personal. It's a family business that's been handed down...More
