You can go to rentskis.com and rent from Ski Depot . By doing it ahead of time you same some money on your rental and you will get in and out faster

I know people who have good things to say about Ski Depot in WP, though by February they're always out of the skis I want to demo. I've always gotten superior service from Alpine Sun in Old Town. You might want to contact them about their rates.

Ski Depot is good, and has good equipment. There are rental shops at the Jane base as well as in the Zpehyr at the Winter Park base. Also in the Zepher is a Rossi store where you can rent demos. Where are you staying?

Aren't all ski's descent equipment?

I think Christy's in town rents and there is the shop that does demo ski's at the base area which I see was mentioned.

humor missed alert...

"descent" = any passing from higher to lower in degree or state; decline

"decent" = adequate; fair; passable



i think i would first determine what skis you wish to rent. and are you just looking for cheap rentals or nice demos?

usually when i'm hitting a mountain and am going to demo (I never rent) I find out the shops in the area, then check them out online or call them to see what skis they actually carry. i also usually have a list of what i wish/would like to demo and several alternates.

if you are demoing, i'd find a shop that's on-mountain so you can partake in a multi-pair demo (if they offer it). this is great as you can try a number of skis for one "low" price as opposed to renting/demoing from a shop and only getting 1 pair for the day.

also, i think some shops might offer discounts if you're going to rent/demo for extended days (i.e. have them out for a week as opposed to a day).

If you are looking for demo skis, try the shop at the Zephyr ( I think it is called the Adventure Center) or the Jane shop. Like Dookey mentioned, each one will let you try multiple pairs.

of course, the advantage of renting at the base is that, if the binding slips or there is some problem with the equipment, the shop if right there. fyi, WP's shops are not allowed (liability concerns) to adjust other shops' equipment.
