Ski and Snowboard Rentals


For those who visit the Vail Valley during the winter months, chances are skiing and snowboarding are at the top of their “must-do” list. After all, skiing is what put Vail, Colorado on the map.

The Vail Valley plays host to two World-renowned ski resorts within a 10 minute drive of one another: Vail Resort and Beaver Creek Resort. Each resort offers incredible terrain suitable for all levels of skiers. For a more in-depth explanation of both resorts, check out our Resort Guide.


The first thing travelers need in order to prepare for an amazing ski or snowboard vacation? Skis or a snowboard, of course!

What are the benefits of renting?

  1. Spend more time on the slopes and less time lugging skis and snowboards around the airport.
  2. Try the latest and most advanced skis and snowboards on the market.
  3. All gear is professionally maintained and tuned, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Where should I rent equipment?
With so many ski shops in the area, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. Vail Butler has a short list of shops we love and endorse.

Why? These shops are all locally owned and operated, have an excellent reputation when it comes to service and reliability, and they carry top-end gear you’ll love.

Save time by reserving your equipment online, or submit a contact form to request help from Vail Butler’s concierge team.
