How to Find Us!
See map here. Truckee, CA is right off of Interstate 80. Our store is very close to a huge assortment of high quality Sierra ski touring destinations that we have outlined on our website. We are in the process of developing an amazing online guidebook and search engine for backcountry ski tours and descents, coming soon! We are also within 5 miles of Sugar Bowl, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar Ski Areas. We are only 30 minutes from Reno Airport.
10% off for 3 day rental, 15% off for 4 days or more. 15% discount for groups of 8 people or more.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more than a few speciality items. With some advance notice, I can sometimes bring in extra gear for your party. I'll also be happy to help you plan your adventures in any way!
We avoid making reservations because we cannot control when the previous person returns the equipment, and would never wish to have your reservation missing at pickup time. This allows us to treat everyone with more flexibility. Our rental fleet is large and items are typically out for only one day, and we will nearly always have a number of good choices of equipment in your size. If you require an equipment reservation to make your trip possible (such as a guided trip or a class, or just have very tight scheduling), call or email ahead and we can work with you. Students and clients of Alpine Skills International, upstairs from us, are allowed to reserve gear for ASI events and classes.
Rates and Time Periods
All rates are per day only. You pay for individual calendar days, not 24 hour periods like 11am to 11am. To get the 1-day rate you return the equipment the same day by closing time; 2 days is returning it any time the next day, and so forth.
