Ski rentals

Hello! We are flying into Burlington and driving to Killington, then on to Stowe in January. We want to travel with our ski boots but rent skis and poles somewhere in VT, preferably Burlington. Any recommendations? It appears that this is not an option at the actual ski resorts so I'm hoping for a local ski shop recommendation. Thanks!

Call The Alpine Shop in Williston Road in South Burlington-Its actually about a mile from the airport.

I know they do season long rentals but not sure about daily/weekly. Worth giving them a call!

I think that Alpine Shop may only do seasonal leases these days. Same with Ski Rack. http://www.skirack.com/ But try calling those places because they'd be the most convenient for the route you are taking.

You can definitely rent here in Richmond. http://www.skiexpressvt.com/ It's a bit out of your way for heading south to Killington from Burlington (maybe an additional 20 minutes), but would be on your way back assuming you are finishing the trip Stowe back to Burlington.

Also, I would be surprised if you cannot rent "skis only" at the resorts and at places nearby (as opposed to skis/boots combo--that you can definitely rent). But I do think it would be easier to have the same equipment the whole trip instead of renting/returning twice at both locations.
