This is the spot! Barclay and the rest of the staff were really welcoming and have an effortless style of getting you in the right gear and out on the mountain! Can't beat the location next to Gondola 1 either!

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.
