Ski Rental Info

Skate Ski Rental for First Year Skiers Only. (Scroll down for info about Classic Rental)

The Booster Club sponsors a skate ski rental program for first year skiers. If you are a first year skier and wish to rent skis for the year, please complete the online form below.  (Depending on the demand, we may have skis available for second year skiers, but you will need to wait until we get all the first year skiers set with skis.)

Pay the rental fee online (

You will need to provide ski boots, poles, and a ski bag.  Look at the Gear Page for info on ski swaps and local ski shops.

Pole length should be from the ground to about the skier's lips or nose for Skate Skis.

A ski bag is very handy and inexpensive ones can be found at local ski shops.

Our first year skiers will be using Skate Skis.  Boots can be either Skate or Combi boots.  Combi boots can be used for Classic nordic skiing as well and work great for both skating and classic, if you can find them.  There are several types of binding systems (how the boots are attached to the skis) in the nordic world, and it can be a little confusing. Visit this page for complete information on ski boots and bindings.

Classic Rental

We have classic skis available for rental, for $25 per season. We will also provide classic poles.  You will need to have your own n boots and a ski bag.

Our priority is to provide classic skis to second and third year skiers.  Other skiers may apply, and we may be able to provide you rental classic skis, depending on the demand.

A note about ski boots:  Like skate skis, there are NNN/ProLink or SNS bindings.  The boots are different for classic and skate, unless you have combi boots, which work for both skate and classic. 

To apply for Classic Skis, please complete the online form below.  You may also use this paper form by printing it and bringing it to practice.
