Can we get the kids ski free discount on top of our advanced reservation discount? [Back to Top]

Kids ski free discounts do not overlap with any other existing discounts.   If the family has skiers that are not eligible for the kids ski free package the discount will be applied to those skiers.   Depending on the value of your discount we always try and figure out if the kids ski free package or the discount for the entire family is the least expensive.  We like to apply whatever works out to be the least expensive for the customer. 


Do you offer 3 out of 5 day rentals [Back to Top]

Powder Pursuits provides one grace or rest day for rentals up to 5 days.  On a grace or rest day the customer will be allowed to hold on to the equipment for no extra charge on the selected day they are not skiing.  It is on the honor system that they will not be skiing on that day.  All rentals of 5 days or longer will be given 2 grace or rest days that they will be able to keep the equipment on for no extra charge.

How early can we pick up our rental equipment? [Back to Top]

All rentals may be picked up after 3pm the day before the rental is to begin.  If the renter wants to night ski the night they pick up that will be a seperate charge from the next days ski rentals.  Night skiing rates are half price of the regular day rates.  All rentals are expected to be returned by 6pm the night of the last day rented.  Late returns may face a fee especially during peak season due to the high volume of turnaround on rental equipment.
