Although many skiers and snowboarders prefer their personal gear to that of a rental shop, renting ski and snowboard equipment should be considered as a valid option for traveling visitors. Utah’s “Greatest Snow on Earth” mostly consists of fluffy, deep powder—much different snow than that of the Northeast, where snowfall is wet and icy. Visitors seeking to enjoy Utah’s phenomenal powder need to be prepared with the right tools and equipment to handle the unique slopes and successfully navigate the deep snow. Renting skiing or boarding equipment will ensure that riders get the best materials for the region and current conditions, making the difference between a nice ski vacation and the ultimate winter destination experience.
*Due to the dry and deep powder at Utah ski resorts, travelers are wise to rent gear when they arrive in town to make sure they get the best equipment for the conditions. The right ski and boarding gear can make the difference between a nice ski vacation and the ultimate winter destination experience.
