Winter Snow Season is on its Way!

Beat the Snow Season Crowds with The Ski Renter!

Snow Season is Just Around the Corner!

Winter is heading our way! Lake Tahoe has already had some snow and more is coming! This is a great time to beat the crowds and come in to The Ski Renter in Cupertino to set up a lease for the season. This is a first-come, first-serve basis and we do have a maximum, so come on in as soon as possible. Equipment will be due back in April and if you lease for your kids and they grow during the season (big surprise!), come on in and we can refit them for boots and skis/snowboards to fit their growing bodies. Ready for the season to start? We are! Come on in and see us!

More Snow!

Our slogan at The Ski Renter is “Think Snow!” Well, we thought snow, and snow we got! 

We have been tracking snowfall at Squaw Valley daily for the past thirteen years. (Hey, that’s what we do. It’s our business!) As of this writing, the base at Squaw is 138”, with 243” up on top.

In the snow report below you’ll see the conditions of other resorts in the area:

It’s been more snow on top of more snow this season. Total cumulative snowfall to date is 462”, which is the most we have had in over ten years. Temperatures have been a little warmer, so the snow has been wet, but now temperatures are dropping.

We may get a few inches of snow over the weekend, but then there should be a break in the storms for an extended period of time. Lots of snow on the ground, clear skies, colder temperatures, and consequently, better skiing and boarding!

So enjoy, be safe, and even though we have lots of it,

Think Snow!

Get Outside With Family This Coming Thanksgiving Weekend!

In case you haven’t heard: REI has decided to close all their stores for Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving). Instead, they are encouraging their employees and clientele to get outside. We love that other retailers share our values! Thanksgiving Weekend is a time to be with your family and friends.  We’ll be closed Thanksgiving Day, but we’ll be back in the store on Friday from 10am to 2pm, just in case you need anything.

So get outside! Plan your first trip to the snow this season or camp where it’s still warm. Plan ahead by calling the The Ski Renter and reserve all the gear you need for your Thanksgiving adventures!
