Ski Equipment (Rentals, Purchases, Boot Fitting)
Peak Performance is the "Go To" shop in Killington for ski equipment, both rentals and purchases. Their incredibly knowledgable staff has been taking care of our family for 20 years, and they are both patient and eager to ensure their customers are happy. https://www.peakskishop.com https://www.peakskishop.com/RENTALS_ep_40.html If you reserve your rental equipment on their website in advance you will get 15% off of your rental rate. Their equipment if first rate and meticulously tuned and waxed before it is given to you. Peak does not handle snowboarding gear, so for that we highly recommend Darkside Snowboards as they are the snowboard specialists in town.
