When it comes to travel, a ski vacation is not always the easiest trip to plan. Rendezvous Mountain Rentals is here to make your overall travel experience a better one. Our local, friendly staff has spent many winters playing in the mountains, so we know a thing or two about making ski vacation planning a breeze. Here are some winter travel tips to assure a hassle-free vacation.
Rent Ski Equipment
One easy winter travel tip is to leave your snow sports equipment to local professionals. There is the traditional option of going to one of the many rental shops in the area for a demo package, or you can take advantage of having your equipment delivered to your door. This new and trouble-free process utilizes a local company that meets you at your vacation rental and makes sure your boots and skis or snowboards are a perfect fit. They also remain available throughout your stay should you need any adjustments on or off the slopes.
Ski Butlers of Jackson Hole is a nationally known company that offers a complete range of Rossignol equipment. Jackson Hole Mountain Direct is run through Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and offers many different brands. Both are available to our guests for a discount and provide great service.
Another option, if you don't want to part with your own skis or snowboard while on your Jackson Hole vacation, is to ship them directly to our office. For your protection, we do not recommend shipping directly to your vacation rental. Kindly let us know if you are planning to ship equipment, and we will do our best to deliver it before your arrival — or you can pick up packages at our office during check-in. Learn more about shipping to our office.
With base layers, outerwear and regular street attire, there is a lot to pack for a winter vacation. How is one supposed to get everything into an airline-approved bag without paying a fortune for extra baggage? If don’t own ski clothing or don’t want to be bothered to pack extra bags, try a rental company like Kitlender. They ship whatever clothing you need ahead of your arrival and arrange for return shipment. We have heard good reviews from our guests about the clothing options and ease of shipping.
Winter Shops in Jackson Hole
If you want an excuse to shop, Jackson Hole has some fantastic outdoor clothing retail stores. Check out stores like Teton Village Sports or Jackson Treehouse, which provide a broad selection of winter wear. If you are in downtown Jackson, make sure to check out the new Stio store, which features an outdoor winter collection designed here in Jackson. It is always fun to go home with something to remind you of your great Jackson Hole adventure.
We hope that you find these winter traveling tips helpful. Be sure to ask our staff for assistance if you have any additional questions.
