I do not envy you one bit if you’re headed someone where there is snow! Yes, I live in Illinois.. we have snow and cold temperatures during the winter months but frankly I don’t like it one bit!
For those of you who do enjoy the snow and enjoy family vacations where you’re skiing off those slopes or snowboarding here is a fab find for you! RentSnowClothes.com which offers head-to-toe ski clothing rentals for kids. A pretty cool idea for those who don’t need to fully invest in purchasing the gear only to use it once or twice.
The Head-to-Toe Package – Includes ski jacket, zippered fleece, ski bibs or pants, ski hat, goggles, baselayer t-shirt and pants, mittens and ski socks.
Items A La Carte – Rent any of the items listed above.
Currently they offer offer 8 day and 4 day rentals.
2. They Ship Your Order
They will ship your order to any valid residence, hotel or company address.
3. Return Your Rental
Once your finished just place all of the items you’ve rented in the original shipping box, affix the prepaid return shipping label (that was included in your original shipment) to the box and (1) drop the package off at any Post Office or mailing center that ships with USPS, (2) give the package to a USPS mail carrier, or (3) if it fits, drop it in a USPS blue mailbox. (If you live in San Diego you can pick up and drop off your rental at their office).
The idea for this business came from a problem many of us living in warm climates face each year – outfitting our kids for skiing and snowboarding. When your kids can make it through the winter with nothing more than a light windbreaker or raincoat, why spend hundreds of dollars on ski clothing and accessories they’ll use a few times and outgrow by next year? By renting, you will save money, plus loads of time and frustration shopping all over town and the internet searching for the right gear. You will also have peace of mind knowing your kids will be in warm, waterproof clothing designed with the latest technology for snow sports. – Melissa K. Black, Founder
