There are a variey of options for equipment.
1. Some MYSL CLUBS have rental equipment banks. Club rentals are intended for those fully participating in the club. Of these clubs, some allow you to request and pay for rental equipment oniine [Club Rentals - Online]* and some have fitting nights where you pay onsite [Club Rentals - In Person]*. See info on the Clubs pages for details on the different clubs. This is childrens' equipment only and waxless classic skis. This is a first come, first served situation. And all of the clubs run out of equipment. You can still participate in any club with your own equipment.
2. Some LOCATIONS have very good and inexpensive daily rentals [Chalet Rentals]*. You just need to show up 30 minutes earlier than your club meeting time to fit and pay. This is for adults and children, classic and skating.
3. Some clubs and club locations have neither equipment banks or onsite rentals. In these cases, it is up to you to purchase (at a retailer or ski swap) your own equipment. [Skiers Must Have Equipment]*
Children's equipment (for discounted rental price and less expensive retail packages) is typically defined as:
Skis: waxless (fishscale) 170cm and under
Poles: Basic loop strap poles
Boots: Classic boots size 38 and under. MYSL rentals typically range from size 30 - 42.
If your child requires equipment larger than this (read, boots) then you will likely not be able to use our club rental program. And you will be into adult/junior pricing at retail shops.
