Park City has become one of the most sought after real estate areas for people moving to Utah, and it isn’t hard to see why. It is a beautiful town, small enough to feel exclusive, but has a ton to see and do. Not to mention the utterly breathtaking views of the snow covered mountains, and the valley below.
But what it is most known for is its skiing and snowboarding. With Winter on its way, it is time for enthusiasts to prepare for their favorite hobby. For the latest information on gear, product demos, rentals, swaps and more, you have to check out these five awesome local businesses. They can help you get ready for that first dump of powder, and keep you powering through to the final thaw.
Jackson’s has become well known in the area for having inexpensive rentals and being extremely helpful. Not only will they assist you in all equipment fittings, and give you full demos before you make a selection, but they will switch out gear based on fit or snow condition without complaint. So if you need to pick something better for a harsher day, or lighter powder, there is no problem.
Do you have kids in need of skis? You may want to consider Bahnhof for your needs. They are patient and explain how to fit, care for, store and use skis at the time of fitting, making them perfect for kids who need a more thorough demo. If you need to take an extra day they are easy to work with. Their wide selection of gear means there are no rushes to return a rental if you want to use it a little longer.
Want to see package prices before you head to the store? Looking for delivery, rather than going in person? Whitedog is a more flexible rental gear shop with great prices. Having all the info on their website helps you avoid calling and running all over town to find what you’re looking for.
Christy Sports is a bit of a pricier option than the ones above. But they make up for it by having a very wide selection, which can be viewed on their website. They rent both skis and snowboards, as well as boots for both. Plus they occasionally have discount deals going on that are well worth taking advantage of.
Jan’s is a great rental option to keep in mind year round. When warm weather hits, they’ve got mountain bikes, road bikes, fly fishing equipment, and more available. But as we’re quickly approaching ski season, you’ll be glad to know they have great deals on the best equipment available for the 2016-2017 winter season. You can rent and/or purchase everything you need for an epic day on the slopes.
