Where to rent AT gear in Colorado (between Boulder/Denver and Beaver Creek)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm looking to rent AT skis/boots next week, headed from Boulder to Beaver Creek, so looking for a shop that's not too far out-of-my-way (e.g. 30 min or 1 hour detour). Any suggestions?

 

Also, I only need the skis for 1 or 2 days, but will stay in Beaver Creek for several more days, so I prefer renting close to Beaver Creek (rather than Boulder) so I don't have to pay for extra days of rentals.

 

Thanks in advance!

Call Bent Gate in Golden? Don't know if they rent but they might be able to direct you.

I think your best bet might be at Mountain Outfitters in Breckenridge.

I would recommend REI Denver

Bentgate is an awesome shop, but they are closed on Saturdays.  This can make renting gear difficult, depending on your schedule.

Wilderness Sports in Dillon- just off of I70.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I stopped by Mtn Outfitters in Breck to chat with them, but didn't end up renting from them (since it wasn't easy to get there the night before, and I wanted an early start before they opened in the morning). I ended up snowshoeing up and carrying downhill skis/boots in my backpack (with the help of a friend). Not recommended but got the job done!
