Pro Tips

Traveling with your ski boots is always a good idea. Just about everything can be replaced at the mountain. But not a good pair of ski boots. It takes a long time to break in boots, and the only thing worse than losing a pair of perfectly comfortable ski boots is having to start over with a new pair.

Renting Gear in Aspen

However, for our average guest who stays six to seven nights during the winter, the easiest way to travel is to skip the gear-schlepp factor altogether and rent equipment in Aspen.
