Ski Gear, Bike Rental activities in Vail
Troy's specializes in two things. It rents high-end, full-suspension mountain bikes in summer, and hires out the best skis on the mountain in winter, both of which can be used to explore the 5000 acres of frontside and back-bowl country that makes the Vail resort great. This shop is independently owned, has friendly staff, and it's been around awhile.
With tips from Troy's you can ski at Vail for a week and never hit the same trail twice. Note: Troy's doesn't rent snowboards.
Another Colorado ski-mountain staple. You'll see Christy at almost every resort in the state, and with good reason – it's been at the gear game since '58. Prices vary with quality (though they do offer demo packages for gear heads). The best deals are always found online and booked in advance, but they take their share of walk-ins too.
