Ski Rental for First Year Skiers Only

First year skiers must complete the paper rental form or  the online form to rent Booster Club skis for the year. The rental fee for the season is $25. All other equipment (boots, poles and appropriate clothing) must be supplied by the skier. Skiers renting booster club skis need a combi boot or skate type boot.A note about ski boots:  Our skis have the type of binding called SNS Profil.  That means the boot needs to be a SNS Profil or SNS Pilot boot.  If you are not able to find SNS Profil or SNS Pilot boots, you can get NNN or Prolink boots and we will change the bindings on the skis you receive to match your boots. (NNN and Prolink boots will not work with SNS bindings and vice versa.)  Visit this link for information about boots and bindings.
