Ski & Snowboard Leasing & Demos

Plan Your Next Snow Sport Adventure

If you're visiting our beautiful region and want to hit the slopes, you're in luck. We have an excellent selection of high-quality, well-maintained skis, snowboards, boots, and poles - all ready for you to rent.

Our ski and snowboard rentals include the best insider information on local trails that you'll find anywhere. We also have all of the gear that you need for a fantastic day or weekend in the mountains, including winter apparel designed to keep you comfortable and warm from head to toe as well as ski and snowboard waxes for a variety of conditions.

Ski Season Leasing Packages

Our packages include either a set of skis or a snowboard, boots, and poles. A la carte options are available upon request. While we do accept walk-ins, contacting us ahead of time to make your reservation is the best way to ensure that we have the gear you need ready for you in the correct size and style as soon as you arrive at our shop.

Junior Alpine Lease Program

Lease excellent quality Atomic Jr. skis with Salomon bindings or Volkl Jr. skis with Marker bindings, Rossignol and Nordica boots and Scott and Masters poles. No more pawing through ski swaps hoping to find the proper skis and boots. Let our expert ski and boot fitters do the work at a fraction of the cost of new equipment. Bring your kids in for ski, boot and pole sizing. Then allow our technicians a couple of days to tune up the skis and adjust the bindings to your child’s boot size, height, weight and ability level. Then come pick up the gear, and all you have to do is get your kiddies to the slopes.

Junior Season Snowboard Lease Program Details

Lease excellent quality boards and boots from Burton. No more pawing through ski swaps hoping to find close enough snowboards and boots. Let our expert board and boot fitters do the work at a fraction of the cost of new equipment. Bring your kids in for board, boot and binding sizing. Then allow our technicians a day to mount and/or adjust the bindings to your child’s boot size and height. Come pick up the gear, and all you have to do is get your kiddies to the slopes.

Adult Alpine Season Lease Program Details

This is a season lease of performance ski gear that will suit beginners all the way to solid intermediate skiers. If you are not sure you want to plunk down for new skis but know you want to avoid the rental lines, this is a great option. Come on by to try on boots and see what ski length will be best. Then allow our technicians a day or two to tune up the skis and adjust the bindings to your boot size and height/weight and skiing type. Then come pick up the gear and have fun skiing.

Junior Nordic Season lease Details

This is intended to be a intro to Nordic skiing package with skis as short as 100cm. They are waxless classic style skis and comfortable and warm boots. Bring the child in to get sized up and you can take the skis with you the same day after we get them set up.

Alpine Demo Skis

We realize that sometimes the best way to choose skis is to try ’em before you buy ’em. We have a demo pair of most of the ski models that we have on the wall . This means you can, for only 30 bucks a day, take those skis you’ve been secretly admiring to the slopes of your choice. Since the money you pay in can be applied toward the price of new skis (in the same ski season), it’s a win-win situation. Demo two skis, get $60 off. Really get to know the personality of the skis before you sign anything. Commitment can be scary.

Free Demo Day! 

We will have our entire fleet of demo skis at Whaleback on Saturday, March 4th, from 10am to 3pm.  Demos are free with a lift ticket and must be 18 to demo.  Conditions should be incredible!  The Whaleback Core Team is hosting the Eastern Tri-States mogul competition that morning.  Ride the lift and watch some of the best jr mogul skiers from Me, Ma, and NH compete. Hope to see you there!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you lease helmets?

We do not lease used helmets as we cannot guarantee that they have not been in a crash and therefore they may not have all of the protection they are supposed to.

What happens if my child outgrows her lease boots in the middle of the season?
With a junior boot fit we err on the side of being a little big versus a little tight if there is any question. If the child’s foot grows a bunch during the season, simply bring everything back in and we’ll gladly swap your lease boots and re-adjust the bindings for the bigger boots for the next larger size.

Does my child need poles?
Beginning alpine skiers do not need poles, as they will focus on basic turning technique first. Poles can complicate and confuse younger skiers and generally provide no benefit until technique develops. They are appropriate for intermediate and advanced skiers, however. Together we’ll make this determination initially. If you decide that poles are needed in the middle of the season, just come on in and pick some up.  Poles are included for all nordic packages as even with the smaller nordic skiers poles are a benefit for that style of skiing.

How old is too old for the junior purchase/lease programs? As far as the skis are concerned (and this similarly applies to snowboards), if one or more of the following are true the child will be beyond our junior lease program: more than 12 years old, weighing over 130lbs, over 5 feet tall or having a size 6+ foot. We will certainly do our best to accommodate special circumstances (an 8 year-old with a large shoe size, for example) if at all possible. Come in and talk to us if there is any question.
