Where can we rent some nice demo skis.We are staying in park City but plan on skiing all over.Last time I was out there we rented at a small shop right in Park City and all of the equipment was junk.I don't mind spending a little more to get some nice stuff and would like to be able to switch it out and try new stuff

I haven't rented there, but shops such as Jan's Sports and White Pine touring have good reputations and I suspect, nice demo skis.

Ramp is located in Park City, you can stop by the factory and pick up a pair of demos to take out for the day.  Just let them know ahead of time to make sure they have the skis you want.

Christy Sports and Cole Sport in Park City and Deer Valley both have good equipment. They are generally more expensive than other shops in the area but have good demo skis. You can also switch out on same day to try different skis. You didn't say when you are going, but obviously the time of year is a factor--earlier (Dec/Jan) the equipment is in better shape and later (Feb/March) it starts to get worn. Good luck.

I've demoed stuff at the Canyons up on the mountain by Red Pine Lodge (sorry, can't remember their name).  The hardship with demo-ing skis from a non-base lodge location is you are stuck with that one ski all day.  Doing on-mountain demos where you can do several skis per day is a far better way to go.  Plus you get lots of good feedback from the on-hill ski techs every time you go back in for a new set, worth the extra $$.

I had a good experience at a place in Kimball Junction in January 2011.  Well equipped cutting edge equipment shop and we were the only ones in there in the morning.  Had great service and got discounts on the spot.  Problem is, I can't seem to find it on the map now.  Kimball Junction isn't very big so you'd either find it or perhaps they closed?

I just got back from Utah. I rented from both Ski 'N See (downtown SLC) and Breeze ski rentals (PC). It was nice to have multiple on-slope locations to swap my skis out as the conditions changed. I got excellent service from both shops. If you reserve online in advance, it worked out to $33 per day for demo skis.

Next time you're in Salt Lake City check out 7even Skis to try some of the skis that they build in the shop.  They have great tuning services as well.

I think next time you should be Salt Lake City. The Lifthouse, a ski shop at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, has served the needs of skiers and ‘boarders for 41 years. No other shop in the ski and snowboard industry comes close to providing the variety of gear and services that we are known for. We have a huge inventory of all the top brands and products and our goal is to provide the best customer service. I think it is best for you.
