Dog friendly camping? Of course!

So, make plans to get out there and enjoy; and don’t leave your best friend home when you do it! You can check out www.bringfido.com for hotels and restaurants that welcome your pet. And if you need equipment, give us a call! We are The Ski Renter in Cupertino. We rent all of the basics, and a lot more. And when you come to pick up your gear, bring Fido with you—as you might have guessed, we’re dog friendly, too!

Renting at The Ski Renter is Green!

We have always operated The Ski Renter sustainably, and several years ago, we certified through the City of Cupertino’s Green Business Program, and we continue to renew it periodically.

What is a green business? In brief, it is a business that operates sustainably, conserving energy and other resources, minimizing waste, and reusing, recycling, and/or composting what we can no longer use. Our lamps are LED, using about one-fifth as much energy as the previous light use. We have a programable thermostat and we set it high in summer, low in winter. All of our faucets have flow restrictors, our toilets are high-efficiency flush, and our appliances are Energy Star. All of the wood used in the store comes from sustainably managed forests, certified by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). The paints we use are low toxicity, zero-VOC. The waxes are non-petroleum products and environmentally friendly and safe.

Renting ski and camping equipment instead of buying it is more sustainable, too! Think of The Ski Renter as skiing and camping equipment “pooling”, making The Ski Renter the “uber” of skiing and camping equipment. Rather than everyone buying their own equipment and then only using it occasionally, leaving it in a closet or the garage the rest of the year, our equipment is in constant use, being shared between hundreds of users every year!

We rent tents (all sizes), sleeping bags, sleeping pads, backpacks, stoves, coolers, lanterns, bear canisters and pretty much anything else you might need for backpacking and camping all year round, and, of course, we rent snow ski and snow board equipment during the ski season. We have it all. So call us at 408-255-9600 to make a reservation, or email us at tsr@theskirenters.com. The Ski Renter, 10675 S. De Anza Blvd., Ste. 2, Cupertino, CA.

Why buy when you can rent? It’s the green thing to do!
