Commonly Asked Questions:


How long does it take to get fitted?

It takes around 15-20 minutes for us to go through the whole process of fitting each person.


What is the turnaround time for me to get my ski package?
After you've been fitted, our shop will make the proper adjustments to your skis or snowboard, and they will be ready for pick up in one week.


When do you start to run out?

We encourage everyone to come in as early as possible; being that rental season opens September 1st, the supply of skis and boards dwindles by December, so try to come in sooner for the largest selection!


When is the best time to beat the crowd?

We recommend coming in anytime during the week or bringing your kids to get fitted after school! Weekends and school holidays tend to be busier with a longer wait time.


Do you have twin tips?

We only have junior size twin tips in a small quantity, so come in early for these!


Can you rent helmets?

We don't rent helmets, and we encourage everyone to buy their own helmet. Renting helmets can be risky for safety reasons.


How old can my child start renting?

When your children start skiing depends more on their size than their age. If your children can fit safely and comfortably into a pair of ski boots, you can begin to teach them to ski!


Are there any other options besides renting to get great skis for my kids?

We know that children grow rapidly, and renting is often the most practical option until they stop growing. However, if you would prefer to buy brand new equipment for your child rather than rent, our Junior Buy Back Program gives credit towards new equipment when your kids grow to need a bigger size. If you return equipment in usable condition after one year, you will receive a 60% credit towards your next ski purchase. After two years, you will receive a 40% credit if you return usable equipment. Deal only viable for the same child, with the original receipt to receive credit. Please ask for more details.


What is the cost of the rental program?

Rental prices vary by age rather than by the size of the equipment. Ages 12 and under rent at junior prices and 13 and older are adults. See above for a more specific list of our rental prices!

The Standout Skis & Snowboards for 2018!

03/01/2017


Winter might be winding down, but the top brands in the industry have already released their new equipment for the next season. We spent a week testing new models from beginner to expert level to decide which gear will line our shelves next winter. After skiing with reps from Nordica, K2, Never Summer, Burton, and Ride to name a few, we learned the ins and outs of innovations from each brand and now have a good feel for which skis and snowboards stood out on the mountain. Here's a sneak peak of what to expect for the 2017/18 season:  


Being able to test the equipment on-snow give us the chance to recommend the right gear for our customers. This year brands like Nordica, Salomon and Never Summer stepped up their game with new improvements that blew us away.

SALOMON's brand new lineup: Men's XDR 75/78/80 Ti
Salomon took the shape of the all time favorite Quest ski and converted it into a frontside carving ski. The result: more fun, lighter weight and easier to maneuver, in all conditions. They reached their goal designing a truly versatile ski for the whole mountain, by using a progressive rockered tip, and wood core melded with titanium inside. Best all around ski for resorts, groomers, and in mixed snow.  

ski5


NEVER SUMMER: Men's Proto Type Two
No matter how bad the snow conditions got, this board withheld the ice and slush. Incorporating the best tech from all of their other Never Summer boards. An asymmetrical design with more camber underfoot makes it versatile for all mountain riding, all day long.

ski6


GIRO Goggles:
We are happy to report that Giro's new Contact Goggle, part of their Vivid line with the spherical Zeiss lens is one of the best goggles we've ever worn. Being able to spot inconsistencies in the snow, in both foggy and sunny conditions is a game changer. The optics are crystal clear, with a mirrored lens, that's distortion-free and easy to change on the chairlift with their new quick release design. We recommend everyone tries Giro next winter!

ski3


RIDE: Men's Helix Snowboard
The asymmetrical design, lets you ride both ways, with a deeper sidecut on the heel side making it easier to alternate riding style.

ski12


HEAD: Men's Kore 93/105
All new freeride series from Head destroys everything in its path. A wood core, graphene and carbon sandwich keeps the ski super lightweight with medium flex. The top sheet "design layer" is for the first time built into the ski to save even more weight made from nylon and polyester. Unflappable in Northeast snow.

ski19

ski15


SALOMON: Astra 78 Woman's Skis
For any woman who likes to do big wide turns and quick little turns, these skis are easy to navigate on the groomers. Ensuring confidence towards the end of the day by staying stable under foot, when the snow gets rough.

ski22

ski14


NORDICA: Men's Navigator Skis 80/85/95
The new Navigator Series is an all-mountain ski with a go anywhere, ski anything attitude. Designed to be lighter weight and more playful with a layer of Hex bridge Titanium and Beechwood inside. Nordica skis stood out with, nice shape, nice profile, and a solid even flex.

Commonly Asked Questions: 


How far in advance should I get fitted? We encourage everyone to come in as early as possible, but realistically two days in advance from when you plan to leave on your ski trip. After you've been fitted, our shop will make the proper adjustments to your skis or snowboard, and they will email or call you for pickup. Our system will save your size and measurements, making it easier and more convenient for the next time you need daily rentals!


When do you charge my card? We will charge your card when you come in to get fit and make your reservation. Each additional day on the mountain is $10 extra. 


When do I need to return my skis by?  We give each customer a grace period of two days for travel time! For example, if you are skiing Saturday and Sunday, you will have Friday to pick up your skis and then can return them on Monday.  

 

 

Custom Ski Boot Fitting

11/02/2016

At Outdoor Sports Center, we take the utmost pride and care in getting you set up with the right equipment. First and foremost, all of our fitting staff ski or ride. With over 100 years of combined fitting experience there is no fit obstacle we can't overcome, and you are sure to leave with the right equipment for you.

From the second you walk in the door, we start spending time with you building a profile of your skier type, style, experience level, what type of skiing you do, and where you like to ski. After that, our boot fitters select which boots best fit your needs and start the fitting process.

Custom shell work

After measuring and evaluating your feet, our fitters get you into a boot and insole that is right for you. Whether you need custom insoles, custom molded shells like the 360° Custom Shell from Salomon, or custom shell work, we have the equipment and the knowledge to get you set up right.

Custom shell work2

What is the best part? All boot fitting is free of charge when you buy your boots here, and we guarantee every single boot fit that goes out the door. Don't like how your boot skied? Bring it back and we'll get it right.
