Tahoe Donner offers some of the best ski and snowshoe rental equipment to help guarantee fun on the snow.

The Basic Ski Equipment Rental Package gives you the choice of traditional classic (striding) or ski skating skis, boots and poles.

The Snowshoe Package includes snowshoes and adjustable poles. We recommend you bring your own snow boots for maximum comfort or borrow a pair from us if you do not own your own.

Performance ‘Demo’ Equipment: We also offer an extensive lineup of high-performance ‘demo’ ski skating, classic ‘skin’ skis and boots. Recommended for strong intermediate or above skiers who wish to try a faster ski. Reservations for ‘Demo’ rental packages or a la carte items  are not available. Come on into the rental shop and we can help you pick and pay for the right gear.

A La Carte Rentals: If you only need skis boots or poles we offer ‘a la carte’ pricing.  Please do not reserve rentals online. Come on into the rental shop and we can help you pick the right gear. If you are looking for just skis, boots or poles, we offer ‘a la carte’ pricing. Our boot binding system is Salomon/Atomic Prolink (also compatible with NNN system boots and bindings). Please email us at xc@tahoedonner.com if you need more information.
