Your trip through our ski or snowboard rental shop will be a breeze. Here are a few pointers to help!
Mountain High offers complete ski and snowboard rentals at all three resorts. All rentals are purchased at the Ticket Windows along with tickets and lessons. Rental equipment may look the same but is set differently for each individual so don't mix them up. Always rent at the mountain. If there is a problem with the equipment, we are able to make a quicadjustmentnt or replacement.
- West Resort - Located across from the base lodge adjacent the parking lot.
- East Resort - Located to the right of the ticket windows.
- North Resort - Located just inside the main lodge.
Mountain High features state-of-the-art rental ski and snowboard equipment. For new skiers and riders, we offer special rental equipment designed to make learning easy and fun.
The first equipment issued is your boots. The rental technician will need to know your street shoe size to assure that your boots fit properly. Your boots should feel snug around your foot, but not tight. Once buckled, you should be able to wiggle your toes, but your heel should not move when you pull up on it. If your boots feel too loose or too tight, please do not hesitate to ask for a different size!
Next, you will receive your skis. Brand new this season, our Rossignol Experience Center is filled with completely new skis, boots & bindings! We are very excited to bring you this state-of-the-art technology as our rental standard. You may notice that your skis are quite short. This is a good thing for learning - trust us!
On the top of your skis you will find complicated looking devices called bindings. These miracles of modern engineering not only hold your feet on the skis, but they also know when to let you go if you fall. A binding technician will set your bindings based on your weight, height, age, and ability level. Please be as accurate as possible to assure proper settings! You will also be issued ski poles which are used for balance and moving around.
Once you are out on the snow, your instructor will show you how to use your bindings to attach your skis to your feet. It's actually quite simple - place the little ledge on the front of your boot under the front binding piece (called the toe piece), line up your heel and press down. To get out, you simply press down on the lever in the back with your ski pole. If your ski comes off during skiing, the ski brake will stop it from continuing down the hill without you!
Our fleet of Rossignol snowboards is the most innovative beginner equipment on the market, due to its soft core flex design and side bevel - perfect for making the first few turns! Snowboards work pretty much like skis do. The big difference is that they are much wider, and you only get one. They have a sidecut just like skis, and turn the same way a ski turns.
Snowboard bindings have one big difference from ski bindings - they don't release! Once your feet are in, they should stay there. Getting in your snowboard bindings is easier than ever with strap-in bindings.
Helmets are becoming a popular choice. We strongly recommend that you educate yourself and your kids on the use of helmets. Visit http://www.lidsonkids.org/ for more information. Helmets are included in Children's lessons and are also available for purchase at Mountain High.
