Skip The Lines, Choose Ski Rental Delivery

This winter, rather than lugging your gear through busy airports or spending the first morning of your vacation in overcrowded rental shops, have a ski rental delivery company bring all of the equipment you need right to your front door.
Over the years, a number of companies have cropped up that allow customers to reserve high-quality skis and snowboards that are sent directly to vacation accommodations. In this article, we take a look at several options that serve most of the world-class ski destinations in North America and many in Europe.


Founded in 2004 in Park City, Utah, Ski Butlers is one of the largest ski rental delivery companies out there. The company sends equipment to 35 resorts in the U.S., Canada, and Europe and can fulfill orders for both individuals and large groups. Everything is done through an online portal and there is no delivery fee charged for any gear that is rented and shipped. All equipment has to be reserved for a minimum of two days, however there is no penalty for cancelling a reservation should plans change.

Worried about whether or not the boot you choose online will fit? No problem. Ski Butlers will show up to your home or hotel with multiple pairs so that you can be sure that you are getting a great fit for your vacation. If you have any issues with your rented gear, Ski Butlers also promises to show up wherever you are within 30 minutes and respond to any concerns. With great customer services and most prestigious resorts covered, Ski Butlers will take good care of you no matter where you are.


Black Tie Skis is another U.S.-based company that will send equipment directly to ski destinations all over North America. The company services 39 resorts in 15 locations across Canada, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Utah, and California.

Similar to Ski Butlers, Black Tie also has an online reservation system for managing gear rentals that allows renters to set delivery times on the hour and half hour so that renters are never waiting too long for their gear. Additionally, the company provides slopeside assistance for renters should they need changes or adjustments to their equipment. Given the breadth of resorts covered, Black Tie is a fantastic option if you are skiing many different destinations.


Started 15 years ago in Steamboat Springs, CO, Door 2 Door Ski & Snowboard Rentals also provides direct-to-home ski and snowboard deliveries and pickups. Shortly after its launch, the company joined forces with Christy Sports, one of the largest brick-and-mortar ski rental and retail companies in the world.  As a result of the partnership, D2D benefits from having access to Christy Sports’ catalog of equipment. D2D serves 16 resorts in Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado.

Like the others, the company also has an online portal for managing reservations and offers 24/7 support by phone. Additionally, renters can get help at any Christy Sports locations, a great perk of choosing D2D as your gear rental and delivery company.


Although not a ski rental company, Ship Skis is a delivery company that will pick up your personal equipment at your home and deliver it directly to your winter vacation lodging for as little as $40 each way. With Ship Skis, users schedule pick-ups online, pack up their own gear, label it, and set it outside for front door pickup or drop it off at local retail locations. Founded in 2011, Ship Skis has grown to serve more than 3,500 facilities worldwide due to its partnerships with major logistics companies, including FedEx and UPS. Going this direction is perfect if you already own equipment and want to take it with you wherever you go without the actual hassle of physically transporting it.

There are many great delivery options available now so that renters don’t have to stand in line at local gear shops or lug personal equipment through busy airports. This season, spend more time doing what you want to be doing – shredding!
