Equip. Rentals "Ski Trucks" Salt Lake City

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hola friends! Instead of renting again and again, and just for 15-20 days/year skiing, any thoughts/advice about Salt Lake City "Ski Truck" USED equipment (skis/bindings/boots)? Prices seem very good....

Thank you.

There's a thread in ski gear discussions "Worst ski website"...it happens to be your boys truck ski. Yikes, after reading their site I wound't suggest anyone buy anything from them.

Taylormatt, tks.

YIKES! Buyer Beware! Employees dangerous!

These phrases seem apt to all the stuff in the site you sent me!

I just wanted to chime in - if you know the equipment, you can buy on eBay and have it shipped to your hotel/lodge, and it's WAY cheaper than shipping your own skis.

On my trip tp Tahoe, the airline wanted to charge me $155 to travel w my skis ONE WAY! I shipped them RT by fedEx for $90

I stopped into see the much advertised Skitrucks warehouse (it's huge) on crappy day not worth skiing this time last year. Ended up buying a new helmet and couldn't be happier. The owner was very cool and friendly.
Seemd to be a place to buy ski accessories and odds and ends. And also maybe a good place for a local casual skier to buy used skis/boots cheap instead of renting all season. Not an experts store by any means but interesting in it's own way.

I have bought my daughter a new/used set up from them every couple of years.  Started when she was 4, she is 9 now.  The equipment has been fine and you can pick and choose the level/age/usage you want.  Most of the stuff I have gotten her was used 1 season and ski'd on very few days. 

They have been great about returns that don't fit properly and then next year buy back anything they sell you at 1/3 of what you paid.

The staff/owner have been very friendly over the phone and easy to deal with.

If I lived in a resort town I would probally go to the ski swaps but I don't.  I am in a small town without so much as a sporting goods store that sells ski equipment, so they are the easiest cheapest way to insure my daughter has her own equipment.  Ebay is a pain and I have had too many bad experiences there.

Now that her level has improved and she is old enough I may start looking for other deals, like I bought her a good new helmet last season.  But for a beginner it was a great deal.

Going back to SLC, looking to buy used equipment, again.  Has this outlet improved in quality and reliability?


They certainly offer the best deal I've found in SLC.

There is only one place I buy used gear in the valley. Each year I make a pilgrimage to 2nd Track Sports on 3300 S to check out early season and late season inventory. It's a consignment store that sells used and new gear. Their prices are usually great (recently I bought a pair of Rossi Soul 7s with Fritschi bindings for $140 - super happy). They sell everything - coats, helmets, boots, skis, gloves, etc.


2nd Tracks gets the Park City Four Wheel Drive Rental stamp of approval !

If you don't mind getting last season's gear checkout levelninesports in salt lake city. I picked up a new pair of rossignol smash 7's here after looking all around. They have a website you can take a look at their inventory
