Mobile equipment rental operations are fighting for your business.  They come to you when you arrive on your ski vacation. Ski Butlers in Steamboat is now offering free gear for kids this season. It's valid for every one child under 12 with every five-day paid adult. It's also good for junior snowboarders.

Ski Butlers is based in Park City and serves 30 North American resorts. However the free gear for kids deal is only good in Steamboat. "Skiing is about bringing families together," says Glen Traylor, president of Ski Butlers Steamboat. "This is a great way to make a ski trip affordable for the entire family which I hope will allow more families to visit and ski Steamboat this winter."

Another company offering delivery service is Rentskis.com. It's no extra charge and you can get your gear at your door at Aspen, Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, Telluride, and Winter Park. They'll also deliver to Park City.  Some resorts have slopeside shops for easy pick up or adjustments. Packages range from beginners to intermediate and advanced, as well as skiers, freestylers, and snowboarders.

Christy Sports also has daily ski rentals with Door 2 Door by Christy Sports. They'll deliver to any location. You'll also get in-store support at any of the 40 Christy Sports stores in Colorado and Utah. The company also offers ski and snowboard rental packages for kids and adults. The season-long packages are available only while supplies last.
