Many Rental Opportunities!snowshoe_on.jpg
Below is a listing of ski area's and stores that rent skis and snowshoes. We have tried to place them based on city/state area. Please call in advance just to double check on the info. We try our best to keep this current, but as in life, we don't always catch everything.

A variety of Michigan shops offer ski and snowshoe rentals. However, plan ahead by calling and reserving to be sure they are available. If you are coming from out of town, check with your local ski shop to see if they rent skis or snowshoes.

We STRONGLY recommend that you rent your skis in your home town or on the way north. Due to scheduling difficulties we are not able to offer demo's on-site this year.
