First off, if this thread is in the wrong forum I apologize.
So I live in the bay area and a few friends are coming in town to ski in north lake tahoe. None of them have gear so they'd be looking to rent. No experts or anything so any basic rental would do, with cost as the most important factor.
Is it preferable to rent gear in the bay area and drive it up there or should I rent gear in Truckee or something?
Also any recommended places would be greatly appreciated!
