  2. Six-week rentals that you keep at West which can be used from 3-9pm on the days of the program.

All renters will need to visit West Mountain Sports (across the courtyard from the Main Lodge) to be fitted for your equipment ahead of the season. Seasonal renters should register for the program and stop in soon after purchase to be fitted for equipment to take home and keep for the season. Rental Prefit Dates are available HERE
