Stopped here to rent cross country skis for the day. The service was great and everyone had a great day. There were 5 of us and we were in and out in 10 minutes. Everything fit and the equipment was in really good shape for being rentals.

These people are excellent fitting equipment to you needs. They are very experienced and know what they are doing. If you rent for a period of time and return the equipment they offer a credit. Good people and good equipment at a reasonable price.

My wife & I decided on a whim to get on the slopes following more than 20 yrs of NOT skiing. Being a little intimidated, and very ignorant, we were pleasantly surprised when store manager, Vic and his assistant, Jennifer dispelled all our apprehension. They were friendly, professional and understanding. They fit us perfectly with our equipment and made our... More

Great equipment and service. Weather was really bad when we visited, and they handled my early equipment return with true customer appreciation. They treated me like they'd like my repeat business, and they will get it!

Always top of the line and newest gear and great service. A French guy was our tech and was both incredibly knowledgable and personalable. I am pretty familiar with other local shops and think Dave's is always the best bet.

Top rental place. We booked for our family of 5 online and got a 10% discount by paying up front. The guys in store were extremely professional, gave good advice and sound tips. Very reasonable value. Slightly limited selection of gear, but it is the end of season. Highly recommended!
