Can I rent snowboard clothes?

Stratton does not rent snowboard clothes. However, you can find all the ski and snowboard gear you could need just steps from our rental locations. Check out Stratton Sports, First Run, Head Case, Burton, the North Face or Syd and Dusty’s, all located conveniently in the Village. Here are a few items we do not rent but do recommend you wear on the slopes:

  • Goggles
  • Snow pants
  • Wool socks
  • Warm layers and a waterproof jacket
  • Hand and/or toe warmers
  • Gloves (and glove liners)
  • Face mask and/or neck gaiter

First, determine your Snowboarder Type

Type 1 – Cautious riding on smooth slopes of gentle to moderate pitch

Type 2 – Moderately riding on slopes of all variety of pitch

Type 3 – Fast riding on slopes of moderate to steep pitch

Next, there are two different ways you can rent your gear: online or in-person

Renting Online

  • This method reserves your gear as we do have a limited inventory of rental equipment.
  • You must book two days in advance.
  • This method allows you to pay online.
  • This method allows for expedited pick-up, which is outlined below in the ‘picking up your online rentals’ section.
  • Click here for gear and equipment rentals only.
  • After you check out, a window will pop up asking you to enter sizing information that way the rental team can process your reservation and begin to put together your specific gear for when you arrive.

Picking Up Your Online Rentals

  • If you reserve your equipment online two days in advance, you can go directly to the Burton Experience Center to pick it up the morning of your arrival. Due to the nature of snowboard sizing, the snowboard rental team can have your boots set out for you in advance, but will wait until meeting you to pick out the correct board size. Keep in mind you can always swap out sizes if needed.

Renting In-Person/Day-of

  • This method allows you to rent the day-of/last minute.
  • You’ll pay in-person so you can pay with cash or card.
  • You can rent your snowboard gear day-of from the Burton Experience Center (located between the Gondola and the Main Base Lodge) or from Sun Bowl Rentals (located in the Sun Bowl Lodge).
  • Go directly to one of these locations and the rental team will walk you through the whole process.
  • You can rent a snowboard from Village Rentals. However, you’ll pick up the gear from the Burton Experience Center either way.

Rental Locations

All of these locations are open from 8am-5pm Monday-Sunday. Wherever you choose to rent your gear is where you’ll need to return it. If you reserve your gear online, you must come to the Burton Experience Center to pick it up, not Sun Bowl Rentals.

Village Rentals – Located in the courtyard, you can go here if you pre-booked your rentals online and you got skis as well as a snowboard.

Burton Experience Center – Located between the Gondola and the Main Base Lodge, this is where you’ll go if you rented a snowboard online or you’d like to rent one day-of.

Sun Bowl Rentals – The Sun Bowl rental center has everything you need to rent day-of if you’re starting your day in the Sun Bowl parking lot.
