Rent Demo Skis for your Breckenridge Ski Holiday

I can vouch from first-hand experience that traveling without your skis is a lot easier than with them; I’m writing this post while I travel by bus from Logan airport to visit my family in New Hampshire. I packed my helmet, goggles, gloves and long johns, but left my skis at home in Breckenridge. No more hauling boots, gear AND skis. Traveling light is the way to go.

The conditions I expect while visiting are typical New England: plenty of snow followed by rain and a freeze. While I could have brought my race skis to handle the ice, I chose to leave them and rent. You can do the same when you travel by renting demo skis in Breckenridge for your ski holiday.

When I get to the ski rental shop in New Hampshire, I will get to choose from a wide range of rental and demo skis at the shop–much the same as you will when you visit us at A Racer’s Edge in Breckenridge. We have demo skis in all styles from race skis by Fischer to fat powder skis by Kastle (BMX 108s) and Rossignol (the ever popular Soul 7). In between we offer great carving and freeride skis.

I recently skied the Fischer 9.5Ti which is a 95mm waisted, 21m ski with a unique feature which lets you select between early rise and standard camber with a simple flip of a switch.

By leaving your skis at home you’ll be able to enjoy a large variety of skis and save yourself the hassle of toting your skis from your home to the airport, to your destination and back.

So while I’m expecting ice and hard pack conditions, I’ll have the flexibility to swap out my rented demo skis should the fresh snow fly and it become a powder day. So will you when you visit us in Breckenridge. See you in the New Year!

New Year’s Day in Breckenridge: Try Demo Rental Skis

For everyone celebrating a winter holiday this week (or last), Happy Holidays! We hope you got a reason or two to get out in the snow this week…it’s snowy and beautiful in Breckenridge and the week between Christmas and New Year’s is always a fun time to be in Summit County.

Since New Year’s Eve is coming up, we’ll pass along a tip that most skiers and snowboarders forget: New Year’s Day is a great morning to rent skis in Breckenridge and hit the slopes! Sure, New Year’s Eve is treated as the entirety of the holiday, but many of us get New Year’s Day fully or partially off, and it’s a great time to get out early and get some early runs in before the rest of the crowd is out of bed.

If you’re an early riser, or don’t plan on staying out too late on the 31st, set up a ski rental for the 1st, try out some demo skis and have the slopes nearly to yourself as you make the most of the second half of the New Year holiday!
