KID'S SEASONAL RENTAL PROGRAM


We are now accepting Junior Rental Equipment returns during normal business hours.  Equipment is due back BY MAY 1, 2021 to avoid late charges.

DETAILS FOR THE 2021/22 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 2000+ 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!

In 2020, we utilized an appointment based Junior Rental Fitting system.  This proved to be beneficial both to our customers as well as our staff.  We plan to continue an appointment based fitting system for the 2021/22 season and will alert our customer base as soon as scheduling opens up for the season via Newsletter & here on this page.  Once the program kicks off, you can schedule a fitting for the season!  Ski Packages are available on a first come/first serve basis.  If you schedule ahead to November, there may not be skis available for you.  In 2020, we sold out of ALL packages by Thanksgiving!  

During the fitting appointment, your Junior Skier's measurements are taken by one of our specialists, they are offered a selection of skis & boots to choose from, and then will take the skis 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.

For the first time since its inception, our rental package rates will increase for the 2021/22 ski season and are as follows:

$119    Gently used ski package includes skis, boots & poles (if desired) **no additional fees for binding adjustment** 

$149    Mixed package includes new skis with used boots OR new boots with used skis (& poles if desired) **no additional fees for binding adjustment** 

$169    Complete NEW package includes new skis, boots & poles (if desired) **no additional fees for binding adjustment** 

STAY TUNED IN MID-JULY AS WE WILL BE OFFERING AN 'EARLY BIRD' DISCOUNT  ($10 OFF USED PACKAGE) FROM MID-JULY TO AUGUST 30TH.  APPT ONLY. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE.  NO HOLDS OR PREPAYMENTS.  CHILD MUST BE PRESENT TO BE FITTED PROPERLY.

All fees include binding adjustments at the time of rental.  Equipment rentals typically begin in September with equipment due back in the store no later than May 1, 2021*.

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 9, and Adult Ladies Size 9.
Our Maximum height is approximately 5'4" (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)
**PLEASE** call us with questions about sizing - 248.652.9240

Pricing is based on package availability and/or customer preference.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
- This is a Junior SKIER program ONLY.  Unfortunately, we do not offer a similar program for Junior Snowboarders.
- Beginning with the 2020/21 season, our Junior Rental program is restricted to those living in the metro Detroit area, including our Canadian neighbors (Windsor).
- I'm sorry, we are unable to REFUND monies for Seasonal Rental Package(s).  We will accept equipment returns prior to May 1st.

*Late returns are subject to daily late fees.  Valid credit card information is retained at contract initiation.
