Why Rent Skis or Snowboard from Us?

Did you know that Shawnee Peak has a top of the line rental shop? We feature the best equipment from Elan, Salomon, Burton and Smith. Each year, we add several hundred pieces of equipment to our fleet and recycle out the old gear. Our staff is fully certified not to mention very passionate about skiing and snowboarding! They will get you on the slopes with ease and in the gear that is right for you.

We are a Burton Learn-to-Ride Center and the only one in Maine! What does that mean? Shawnee Peak exclusively offers Burton snowboard rentals and our equipment is designed for those learning to snowboard or take their abilities to the next level! We have all sizes, as well as junior and women’s specific equipment.

For you skiers, we exclusively offer Elan skis, which are the best in the industry as they feature many innovations designed for skiers of all abilities and ages. We also have a fleet of ski boots from Salomon, Dalbello and Alpina. With versions for all sizes including women and children-specific, our boots are very comfortable! After every use, we check our equipment and dry out so that it is ready for the next person!

Shawnee Peak recommends that everyone wear a helmet – we carry both Smith and Anon helmets. These helmets are VERY comfortable and warm – it is cool to wear a helmet! We have all sizes for the littlest kid all the way to the big adults! Please bring goggles as we do not rent goggles.

Renting on-site at Shawnee Peak has many advantages as well. First, it is a one-stop shop. There is no need to lug equipment into a car or have to park twice. When you’re here, you’re here! Park the car, grab your ticket and come on over to the rental shop. If you want, you can leave your footwear in the shop and head straight out to the hill. After you finish for the day, just bring your stuff back and off you go! Don’t forget to grab a beer or cider donut and reminiscence about a great day on the slopes.

Most importantly, renting on-site offers the most important advantage – if you have a problem with your gear, you can come back and we can fix it ASAP! Unfortunately, we are NOT able to fix equipment that has been rented off-site.
