We’ll whisper it: you should rent your skis and snowboard on your next trip. We get it. You’ve got your pride and joy — your perfect setup — and you want to shred it at every opportunity. But when was the last time you mixed it up a little? Come to that, when was the last time you flew to a new resort without the added hassle of hauling your ski bag across the country? What if we told you that your one fear with gear rental wouldn’t be an issue?
Because we all know that concern — ‘what if the gear is no good and I can’t ride as well?’ — and it’s part of the reason we bought our gear in the first place, right? Well, Ski Butlers has excellent news for you. They recently announced the release of their Premium line of equipment delivered right to your door. This line builds on their current Rossignol setup with partnership skis from Parlor Skis, Wagner Skis, and a snowboard created with Whitespace, the brand brainchild of legendary rider Shaun White. Here’s what Ski Butlers offers.
Ski Butlers is a rental operation with a difference. There’s no standing in line with your ticket as you watch your lines get ripped up by other riders because these guys come to you. The best gear is delivered to your door, so you can spend more of your holiday skiing or snowboarding without standing in a rental store. Although Ski Butlers operates at over fifty of the best worldwide ski resorts, the Premium package is limited to certain ski areas.
While Ski Butlers has always taken pride in having the best gear for the task — their Rossignol lineup includes everything from quality beginner setups for your first turns to some true powder munchers for those skiing at the highest level — they have now taken things a step further.
What’s the easiest way to ensure you have the best gear on the market? Well, Ski Butlers decided to partner with brands and collaborate on design. CEO Bryn Carey said, “These brands were selected to be unique, custom-built, and designed specifically for certain locations.” So, what have they come up with?

Parlor Skis, from New England, has designed and manufactured their setup to suit the resorts they will use. By accounting for gradients, conditions, and ski trails in those ski areas, Parlor ensures that you have a set of skis that look great, make every turn count, and maximize the terrain.
