4th of July and S’mores!

Get it? S’mores!
The long weekend is right around the corner and it’s not too late to grab some gear from The Ski Renter and head for cooler ground. Our summer inventory includes backpacking and camping tents, sleeping bags, stoves, coolers and more. All from high-quality, reliable brands!

We hope you are enjoying our warm weather options as much as we enjoy providing them to you.

“I’ve rented here for years and it has only gotten better with time. New owners bought it a few years back and they have improved the service and products each year. The owner is often there when I come in and he always helps me find exactly what I need. Best mom and pop experience I have had.”

Why buy when you can rent?
