My trip to Whistler was the first time I can remember where I haven’t been through an airport lugging around suitcases, backpacks and most importantly, my gear. For me, the trial of dragging a huge, overweight snowboard bag is a notorious hassle (not to mention the danger I impose on anyone within a 5 ft radius of me while I carry the thing around). On our week trip to Whistler however, I got to leave my gear at home and try out some of the best brands in skiing and snowboarding. It was a nice change.
Pre-booking your rentals at Whistler means when you arrive at your hotel, there is a voucher waiting for you upon check-in. You can bring this voucher to any 10 of the convenient rental locations, get your equipment fitted, and be out the door and on the slopes in no time. I should also mention you can return them to any location at either base, or even switch them throughout the day to match your skiing style and the conditions.
