We love winter in Salt Lake City. In fact, winter is fantastic throughout Utah. The skiing is great, the views are spectacular, and the people are second to none. Why would we want to offer ski rentals and snowboard rentals anywhere else?
There are other places to ski; no doubt of that. But no other locale is quite like the greater Salt Lake City area. If you’re planning on visiting for your next skiing vacation, rest assured we will do everything we can to make your trip a huge success. Let’s start with some helpful tips you can put in your back pocket and pull out when you’re ready to start planning.
1. Carefully Research Your Accommodations
Utah has tons of accommodations for every preference and budget. From the cheapest hotel rooms to the most luxurious single home vacation rentals, we have it all. So our first piece of advice is to research your accommodations very carefully. Make sure you know exactly what you’re getting and what your final price will be.
We don’t anticipate you’ll have any trouble, but there’s no need to take unnecessary chances. Cross your T’s and dot your I’s. Maintain regular contact from whoever you are choosing to stay with. And if you ever have reason to be cautious, don’t be afraid to back out.
2. Rent from a Reputable Business
If you plan to rent your ski equipment once you arrive here in town, we have you covered. Even if you don’t choose Canyon Sports for ski and snowboard rental, we still encourage you to rent only from reputable businesses.
Do an online search for reviews. Look for businesses with legitimate commercial addresses rather than residential addresses. Once you’ve narrowed down your choices to a short list, check out every business on social media. We are confident that doing your homework will result in Canyon Sports being one of your best options.
3. Check Us Out for Discount Lift Tickets
If you’re hoping to score discount lift tickets, just know that you won’t be able to get them at the resorts. We know of only two local resorts that sell discounted tickets directly to consumers. But they only do so through their websites.
You also will not find them at retailers all over Salt Lake City. To our knowledge, we are one of just two local companies given access to discount lift tickets on a regular basis. So here’s the deal: you can visit us for both discounted tickets and ski and snowboard rental. How’s that for a great deal?
4. Plan as Early as Possible
This last one may be the most important of all: start your planning as early as possible. Some 20 years ago, it may have been okay to decide on a “last-minute” trip just a few weeks out. Traveling to ski in Utah didn’t require advance planning. That’s no longer the case. Salt Lake City skiing vacations are extremely popular right now. If you are waiting until two or three weeks before travel to start planning, it’s too late.
We recommend planning 4 to 6 months in advance. The sooner you can make your reservations, the greater the chances you’ll get everything you want. And by the way, this doesn’t apply just to lift tickets and equipment rentals. Even your accommodations and flights get harder to come by the closer you get to your travel dates.
We hope your next Salt Lake City skiing vacation is a fantastic one. If we can help you with affordable and reliable ski and snowboard rental, we’d be glad to pitch in. Contact us to learn more.
