Hi All,

 

Headed to JHMR first week of March. Very excited.

 

Can anyone recommend the best place to rent skis? I'm thinking at the following link:

Hi - I'm headed to JH a couple of weeks after you - can't wait!  I had planned to go with their rental shop, too, using the 20% prepay discount deal for a demo package.  Would love to hear about your experience afterward, and/or if you find another option elsewhere. 

 

Where are you staying? Being my first time there, am still debating lodging options and location...     looking forward to it!

I'm headed to JH in one week. I had asked the same questions about rentals, on the advice of another I PM'ed Teton Powder Junkie. He is an instructor and ambasador. We are going to book him for a lesson so he was kind enough to recommend JHSports and give us his employee discount info. I suggest looking him up. Any idea what skis you'll be renting? looking for recommendations...

I just got back from my first trip to JHMR.  I rented at two places:  Hoback Sports at the town square, and JH Sports right in front of the gondola.  The guys at Hoback were accommodating and friendly.  The skis were well tuned and they had good top end stuff.  However, I have to admit the boots they put me in were a bit mediocre.  I was able to get by with them, so I wouldn't say they were horrible, but they weren't what I expect from "demo package".  The package at JH Sports was higher quality, but not surprisingly, the ski edges weren't quite as sharp (probably because they rent more stuff).  The boots were much higher quality though, so I would recommend them.  I'd also recommend Pepi Steigler because it looked like their Kastle package was really nice high end stuff new stuff.  And it's right there at the tramline (next door to JH Sports).

 

There were a few other rental shops- Wildernest seemed fine although I didn't try them.  Probably worth giving a shop a call to make sure you get what you are looking for.  Everyone is so laid back out there.  It was pretty easy dealing with pretty much everyone I talked to all week.  Not kidding.  They don't stress out over anything.
