Welcome to Vail’s Premier Ski Rental Shop

Family owned and operated since 1977

Est. 1977

Voted BEST OF VAIL Ski Shop & Ski Tune

Established in 1977, Vista Bahn Ski Rentals is one of the last Vail owner-operated ski shops. The Gros family — Joël, Jane, Sacha, and Dominique — have lived the ski life for over 40 years and are proud of their ski heritage. When you step into our shop, you step into our family. In an industry where shop employee turnover is paramount, we’re happy to welcome back our same crew year after year – including a few bi-lingual Argentinians to welcome our international guests.

We not only offer the highest quality ski rentals, we also have a variety of storage options to avoid the drudgery of schlepping gear and provide quick repairs, ski tuning, and advice about boots and gear right on the spot.

  • Free Storage with any of our Rental Equipment

  • 18 Steps from Vail Village Gondola One
