Snow King Mountain prides itself as being Wyoming’s first ski hill, and boasts “great steeps, ripping groomers,” and terrain dedicated to beginners. But before you can hit the mountain, you’ve got to make a decision: should you buy or rent equipment? Of those two options, renting is much more budget friendly and can end up saving hundreds of dollars. This is especially important because travel and resort costs can add up quickly. We’ve got you and your budget covered with tips for scoring the best Snow King Mountain ski rentals.

Ski Packages for Less

The earlier you browse Snow King Mountain ski rentals, the more money you’ll save in the long run. As soon as you know when you’re going to hit the slopes, check with us for the best, most current deals on rental gear. We can help you reserve rentals online and alleviate the rush of finding rentals on the day of your trip. Even better, reserving rentals online can help you avoid inflated resort rates.

Another option for saving money on Snow King Mountain ski rentals is to check out off-site rentals. Local shops are happy to rent skiers and snowboarders gear for a lower price than what’s offered at the resort. For example, Snow King’s Performance Ski Package is priced at $47.50, and their Snowboard Package is $65.00. For comparison, the single day rate at Hoback Sports in Jackson, WY offers a Performance Ski/Board Package for $44.50 in store and $36.60 online. Even better, JH Skis offers a Sport Package priced at $40 – but the price for a Snowboard Package is $50. Depending on your needs for Snow King ski rentals, any of these options could be great for a budget-friendly trip.

Things to Keep in Mind

The gear offered at off-site shops is typically just as good as what you’d find at the resort. For example, JH Skis offers a wide array of ski brands like Rossignol, Faction, and Atomic Century. This shop also delivers skis, which can be a huge convenience.

In terms of rental equipment, pay special attention to the boots. Boots can make or break your ski experience, so it’s extremely important to try them on until you find a pair that fits best. In addition to great boots, wearing the right socks is imperative. Make sure to wear either synthetic or merino wool, and steer clear of cotton. Last, make sure to either rent or purchase a helmet. For frequent skiers and snowboarders, a helmet purchase can save a lot of money.
