special equipment rental/tryout
Which ski areas/ski shops offer rental/tryouts of the shorty/double tipped skis?
Ski Liberty, Ski Roundtop and Whitetail all offer ski boards for rent. Ski Liberty and Ski Roundtop have both Dynastar Twins and Salomon SnoBlades. Whitetail has a few pair Salomon SnoBlades. You can rent either at Liberty for 5.00 per hour w/ boots included. Liberty also offers Dynastar Groove shorty skis ( 153cm w/ releasable bindings and a slightly turned up tail for tricks )at the same price.
Last season, Ski Liberty also had a demo booth where you could rent this stuff without standing in line with full day renters. I think they will have the booth this year as well. Think COLD! (Used to be think snow - but with snowmaking capacity as it is and the need for clear roads - Think COLD says it better!).
