Start planning your ski trip and enjoy a white-snow sporty vacation. Consider the most popular ski vacation destinations, browse our ski vacation rentals in the US, and prepare your gear to hit the slopes this upcoming season. At Rentalo, we want to help you make the most of your ski travel by providing some useful tips and recommendations.

Plan your ski trip accordingly

The earlier you plan your ski trip, the better the chances you get discounts and better deals. Consider an early or a late season trip, also try a mid-week journey to avoid crowds and get special discounts at selected resorts. If you are flexible with your travel dates, you may also want to try last-minute accommodations and ski packages; check directly with the ski resorts for special deals and availability. Also, be attentive to special resort promotions that bundle ski and stay offers; some of these include lodging, lift tickets and quick ski instruction. You will save money on packaged offers.

It is also a good idea to check detailed ski reports and weather conditions in the ski location of your choice. Check also available and open trails, and visit the resort´s website for updated relevant ski information. Some resort websites have live webcams that may give you a better grasp on the spot you are visiting.

Traveling with your ski gear

If you are taking your own equipment, check your ski gear during your ski trip planning so you can review and pair it to local ski conditions. Prepare a list with everything you may need; remember to check boot and ski clamps, wax your skis and take clothing in good condition.

You may probably want to rent a car that comes with a ski rack to place your gear and ask for GPS navigation devices that also come handy if you are driving around and skiing at multiple locations.
If you are flying to your ski destination, check the airline regulations before you start packing. See if there are special and separate regulations for your luggage and a sports bag. Remember, ski bags may be large in size and heavy, check if your gear meets the cargo size and weight requirements in advance of your ski journey to avoid paying extra fees. You may want to consider taking your boot bags and a day´s set of ski clothing on a separate bag, that way if your luggage gets delayed, your skiing won´t be held up.

Skiing may be a demanding and exhilarating experience. Plan your next vacation trip in advance, check our ski destinations and lodgings in Colorado. Review vacation rentals in Breckenridge, ski homes in Vail, vacation homes in Steamboat Springs and hotels in Aspen. Enjoy the slopes!
