Camping and Backpacking Equipment

Winter is over and summer is nearly here. Last year at this time we were closing shop for the warm season. But, this year we are staying open year round and renting only the best camping and backpacking equipment to feed your inner adventurer.

So, whether you’re hiking into the desolation wilderness, or car camping at the coast, stop in to rent the equipment you’ll need to face the great outdoors.


Snow news is good news!

Snow news is good news! Snow depth at many resorts is still pretty awesome; 63” at Alpine Meadows, 50” at Boreal, 66” at Heavenly, 88” at Kirkwood, 64” at Northstar, 76” at Sierra-At-Tahoe, and 72” at Squaw Valley; some of  the best depth we’ve seen all season! But you better hit the slopes before it melts. Temperatures are below freezing at night, but up to 55 degrees F during the day.

Also, get ready for our “End-of-Season Sale” April 12th and 13th. We need to clear some of the shelves to make room for next season’s equipment, so this is your opportunity to purchase some great equipment at some very reasonable prices!  You owe it to yourself to at least come by and take a look!  We will be servingcomplimentary hot dogs and sodas, too (including vegetarian and kosher), and Nuki, our Siberian husky mascot will be there to help pass out balloons to the kids.  You don’t want to miss this!

Ski Vice President’s Day Weekend!

Presidents’ Weekend was so successful, we thought we would extend it and do it again – so we’re having Vice Presidents’ Weekend.  After all, Elbridge Gerry, Hannibal Hamlin, Charles Fairbanks, and Schuyler Colfax, Vice Presidents all, were important too!  The snow is good, the temperatures are dropping, and there is more snow predicted for later this week, so February 28 – March 2, are officially Vice Presidents’ Weekend at The Ski Renter!   Read more

Ski President’s Day Weekend!

It looks like your Snow Dancing has begun to pay off! We’ve had two small snowfalls this past week totaling 6-8” for the higher resorts, and now the predictions are for one to three feet of new snow between now and Saturday. Read more
