- I've rented from here a couple times with no problems, then saw all the bad reviews on Yelp. When I showed up at the ski shop on March 26th 2014, I expressed my concerns. The workers acknowledged the bad reviews, they remembered those people. I asked them to double check my bindings, they did. I rented the sport package skis, ended up with standard Rossignol (blue and white). These skis worked ok, but I was at Snowbird and they got dumped on. The next day I went back and expressed my concerns and wanted to try something else, a wider ski that could handle the powder better. They put me in Rossignol Phantom 80s, and these skis were much better. It seems to me the trend is a wider ski. The old style Rossignols (blue and white) will work on the groomed runs, but it just seems everyone has wider skis that can handle the powder and crud better. Heck, there were people with Atomic skis that were even wider than my Phantom 80s, and they were rentals too. If someone comes in and it's a sunny day and the runs are groomed, then the old style Rossignols will be fine. But if the area is getting dumped on, the Phantom 80s or similar are better. So for my visit, everything worked out, the ski shop heard my concerns, swapped out the skis after the 1st day, and I had no problems with the return. I hope the trend continues because this shop has a good location downtown. The coupon I printed from the web site worked, and the discounted lift tickets saved me some money. When you go, ask them to check the weather, tell them which resort you plan on visiting, and then decide which ski will work the best depending on which trails you will be skiing.
