How do you select my equipment?
Our state-of-the-art reservation system and our professionally trained rental techs use the information you provide to select the best possible equipment to suit your needs. If by chance the boot or ski is not suitable, we carry a full back stock in our vans that are parked right outside.

We will do our best to bring that exact piece of equipment, or something comparable.

In the rare event that something happens with your equipment we are just a phone call away. Our rental techs can meet you shortly with a replacement.
Do you rent helmets?
At Black Tie Ski Rentals of Boone / Banner Elk, we take the safety of our clients seriously. That’s why we only carry Atomic Helmets, which offer the latest and greatest in safety with MIPS technology. Helmets are safe, warm and are available for all ages and sizes. You can request them when making your reservation.
What does the Damage Waiver cost?
An optional damage waiver is available and covers damage to equipment caused by normal wear and tear incurred while skiing. It does NOT cover damage due to NEGLIGENCE, THEFT, OR LOSS. We strongly recommend selecting the damage waiver.
What if I have my own boots?
If you have your own boots, you can deduct $4 per day from the cost of your package. Please specify when making your reservation that you have your own boots by selecting a “ski only” package.
Individually owned and operated?
To make sure each and every guest receives the highest levels of service and personal attention all Black Tie Ski Rentals locations are locally owned and operated. Chances are the owner is the one fitting your boots!
How many people do I need for a group?
Traditional groups start at 15 people, and you should contact your desired location directly to discuss any group discounts that may be applicable.
Will I get a refund if I want to take a day off in the middle of my trip?
No, renting skis is like renting a car: if you have your equipment for 4 days and you only use it for 3, you still need to pay for the entire rental period.
