KID'S SEASONAL SKI RENTAL PROGRAM
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU CALL THE STORE!
EQUIPMENT RENTAL REQUIREMENTS

* Renter must reside in the metro Detroit area and be able to honor the terms of the contract. No out of state, or out of area rentals can be processed.

- We are unable to REFUND monies for Seasonal Rental Package(s). We will accept equipment returns prior to May 1st.
DETAILS FOR THE 2023/24 SKI SEASON:
The Ski Company Ltd Junior Rental Program is the best value in the area for your growing child!
Beware of 'Buy Back' or 'Buy In' programs (which could mean upfront costs in excess of $300 per child and either the store goes out of business or your child ages out of the program before he/she is done growing!). We are size based, not typically* age based and we are a straight-forward rental program. *Our general rule of thumb is that if your child can drive to the shop to rent skis, they are too old for our program! We have remained a steady downtown Rochester business for over 36 years and rent approximately 3000+ pair of skis a year to our loyal customer base. We are here to help encourage a LOVE for SKIING and want to make it as easy and affordable as possible for our local families!
Since the COVID pandemic, we have utilized an appointment based Junior Rental Fitting system. This continues to be beneficial both to our customers as well as our staff. We plan to continue an appointment based fitting system for the 2023/24 season and will alert our customer base as soon as scheduling opens up for the season via Newsletter & here on this page. Please check your spam or junk folders. Once the program kicks off, you can schedule a fitting for the season! Ski Packages are available on a first come/first serve basis. Our appointments are based on our staffing. As long as skis are returned on time allowing us ample tune time, we anticipate a mid-July kickoff to the rental program.
During the fitting appointment, your Junior Skier's measurements are retrieved from your pre-registration. Your youth is then offered a selection of skis & boots to choose from, and will take the equipment home the same day! Your Junior Skier will retain possession of the ski package for the entire season, and return them in the Spring! Skip the lines and the high prices at the ski hill! This program is extremely popular so be sure to come in soon to get set-up before the snow flies! Skis are due back BY May 1st but can be returned anytime prior to that deadline.
Our rental package rates are as follows:
$119 Gently used ski package includes skis, boots & poles (if desired) **no additional fees for binding adjustment**
$159 Mixed package includes new skis with used boots OR new boots with used skis (& poles if desired) **no additional fees for binding adjustment**
$199 Complete NEW package includes new skis, boots & poles (if desired) **no additional fees for binding adjustment**
All fees include binding adjustments at the time of rental. Equipment rentals typically begin in August with equipment due back in the store no later than May 1, 2023*.
Our Junior Rental Program is PRIMARILY SIZE based, not age based. (However, if your child is able to drive to the shop (age 16) to rent skis, they are too old for our program).
PLEASE ALSO NOTE, Our ski's are JUNIOR skis and are NOT designed for heavy park use. Should breakage occur due to excessive jumping, or rail use in the parks, it will be the responsibility of the renter to cover the cost of the skis.
Maximum shoe sizes are Adult Mens Size 8, and Adult Ladies Size 8.
Our Maximum height is approximately 5'3" (our tallest rental ski is 150cm).
We do have a SMALL selection of larger boots and longer skis that are available at the start of the season (think July/August timeframe)
