Save Big by Planning Ahead

The best way to save money on a ski trip and Crystal Mountain ski rentals is simply to plan ahead. Prices can fluctuate wildly depending on when you visit. But the earlier you browse prices, the more cost-effective your trip will be. It’s also more budget-friendly to rent equipment than to buy it. In fact, renting can save you hundreds on travel costs. We can help you reserve rentals online and alleviate the rush of finding rentals on the day of your trip. Even better, reserving rentals online can help you avoid inflated resort rates.

Another option for saving money on Crystal Mountain ski rentals is to check out off-site rentals. Local shops are happy to rent skiers and snowboarders gear for a lower price than what’s offered at the resort. For example, Standard Ski and Snowboard Packages will run you $42 at Crystal Mountain. However at Greenwater Skis, the Adult Ski Package is priced at $34, which saves you $8 off of the resort price. On top of that, Greenwater Skis is self-described as a service oriented shop with a desire to provide guests with the finest equipment and professionals. So while you lose the convenience of renting from Crystal Mountain, you get a good discount and a dedicated, family-oriented staff.

Things to Keep in Mind

Off-site shops typically offer rental gear that is just as good as what is offered at a resort. For example, Greenwater Skis has a huge array ski brands like Rossignol, Nordica, Atomic, and Salomon. New Demos for the 2016 season are also available. Greenwater Skis’ committed staff, fair pricing, and great selection make the drive off-site for Crystal Mountain ski rentals well worth it.

Also regarding rental equipment, remember to pay special attention to boots. Boots can make or break your ski experience, and fit and comfort will make all the difference in your ski experience. In addition to great boots, wearing the right socks is imperative. Choose synthetic or merino wool, and steer clear of cotton. Last but not least, rent or purchase a helmet. For frequent skiers and snowboarders, a helmet purchase can save a lot of money, and the added protection is definitely worth your money.
