Rah rah for gear rentals
A recently published Wall Street Journal article recommends that skiers rent most of their gear when they travel. “Imagine arriving at your hotel room and a full array of premium ski equipment is waiting for you. It’s not just some weird fantasy anymore.” The article by Michael Frank mentions Ski Butlers and Black Tie Skis, both of which operate in Jackson Hole, as well as the Four Seasons in Teton Village, which lends an in-house supply of skis, including Black Crow, Fischer and Kastle brands. The article advises against renting boots. “Ski boots should be specially made for your feet. Otherwise they hurt like hell.”
