Aspen skiers and snowboarders have two options for renting equipment: an in-store experience or a delivery service that brings rentals directly to their condo or private home. While both choices have their benefits, we've outlined three surprising perks of selecting a delivery service for equipment rentals.
About Ski Butlers, Frias Properties' preferred equipment rental delivery service
Ski Butlers' Aspen chapter is a locally owned franchise operated by longtime residents who are passionate skiers themselves. Their highly trained staff of rental technicians deliver equipment and fit Frias guests in the comfort of our condos and private homes.
Ski Butlers' rental equipment is intentionally limited to Rossignol gear, a brand that offers a range of equipment with a ski or snowboard that's suitable for every ability and snow condition. This brand loyalty allows Ski Butlers to refresh their rental fleet more often, so Frias guests ski or snowboard on newer gear.
Three perks of opting for equipment rental delivery
- A Frias couch is more comfortable! When it comes to trying on ski boots, we're confident in saying that our vacation rentals offer a more comfortable setting than a crowded rental shop, especially after a day of traveling with the whole family. Moreover, Ski Butlers rental techs bring an array of boot sizes, so guests can get the correct ski-boot fit before they are on the snow.
- Equipment trade-outs are easy. Don't like your stuff? A Ski Butlers tech will meet you at the base of whichever mountain you are skiing -- even during the middle of the day -- and swap out gear.
Or if it's nuking after the lifts close, and you want to upgrade to a powder ski for tomorrow's deep conditions, a Ski Butlers tech can come to your condo before the lifts start spinning to deliver some fat boys.
There's a third scenario where you might want to trade your equipment! If you feel like switching from skiing to snowboarding (or vice versa) during your vacation, Ski Butlers can easily accommodate the trade.
- Frias Properties guests receive free storage and transfers. While our condos may be close to Aspen Mountain, even a block can seem far when you're carrying skis, boots and likely schlepping the kids' gear. Ski Butlers extends Frias guests complimentary equipment storage at the base of all four ski mountains. If your group is moving to a different mountain the next day, your equipment will be transferred and waiting for you at the base.
