Equipment

Created with Sketch.

Snow Sports Equipment

  • Skis, Ski Boots and Ski Poles or…
  • Snowboard, Snowboard Boots, Snowboard Leash
  • Velcro strap to bundle skis and poles. Ski and/or snowboard bags are ok, but leave them in the Bus cargo hold
  • Backpack (NO suitcases, NO boot bags, NO large duffles)
  • Please label/tag all equipment and bags
    (write on clear packing tape with a sharpie to label rentals)

Snow Sports Clothing

  • Ski/Snowboard Helmet (required)
  • Ski/Snowboard Goggles (required)
  • Waterproof Snow Gloves (2 pair are recommended)
  • Layered, synthetic clothing is best
    Avoid cotton underwear and sweatshirts
  • Waterproof Snow Pants
    (either insulated or shell plus long underwear)
  • Waterproof Jacket
    (either insulated or shell plus zip-in insulated liner)
  • Thin or medium non-cotton socks — modern boots are well insulated so thick socks are NOT necessary.
  • Please label all clothing

Equipment Rentals

  • Daily/weekend rentals require pickup and dropoff of equipment each time you need it–time consuming and more expensive in the long run.
  • Season rentals let you keep the gear for the entire season.
  • Note that season equipment rentals do sell out so shop EARLY!
  • Students MUST have their gear IN HAND to board our buses. Do NOT plan to have your student pick up/return gear at the Summit! E.g. students may not use Summit Season Rental Passes.

Equipment Tuning

  • If you own your own gear, be sure to check that it is properly tuned, sized and adjusted to allow for growth in height, weight and foot size.
  • Be sure your boots fit! You should be able to wear them buckled/tied comfortably for several hours at a time — try it at home.
  • Be sure your ski boots fit your ski bindings and your bindings are correctly adjusted!
  • Be sure your snowboard boots fit your snowboard bindings and your bindings are correctly sized with no loose, torn, cracked or missing parts!
  • Most stores selling and renting equipment offer equipment tune-ups if you take your gear to them (don’t forget the boots).
