What is a ski/board seasonal lease?

The Ski Bum gives you the ability to lease adult and youth ski and snowboard equipment. For children leasing enables you to put your child in the correct size equipment and allowing them to progress faster and enjoy winter sports. For adults, it is a less expensive way to discover skiing and/or snowboarding.

The leasing program starts October 15th and we will accommodate everyone as best as possible while supplies last. Stop in early for the best selection.

We will size you and/or your child and fit you/them in the appropriate equipment. We then will adjust and tune up the gear and allow you to keep it until the end of April.

If your child grows or you have a fit issue during the season we will do everything we can to re-fit you or your child, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to fit all circumstances.

To lease we need the following:

1. A valid drivers license

2. A valid credit card (not a debit card) that expires after June 2022
