Cross Country Ski Lessons and Rentals

Cross Country Ski Headquarters has over 200 pairs of ski rentals, and dozens of snowshoe rentals. We can fit Junior boot size 6 (3 year olds) to Men’s size 15. Rentals include the newest technology No-Wax and Backcountry skis from Fischer, Salomon, Alpina, Atomic, Madshus, Kneissl, Karhu & Rossignol, and state of the art Skating and Classic Waxable skis from Fischer, Atomic, Rossignol, Salomon & Madshus.  We use both the SNS and NNN binding systems on our rental equipment.

All Rentals include boots, skis, bindings and poles, plus a Cross Country Ski Headquarters Facilities Pass (savings of $8 per adult per day!). Plus, if you are new to skiing, our staff will escort you to the trail, help you get your skis on, and teach you how to get up after you fall down!
