Telluride Ski Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

What is Black Tie Ski Rentals?

We are Telluride’s Premier Ski and Snowboard Rental Delivery Service. Black Tie will actually come directly to your accommodation to fit your entire family or group. After the fitting, you can choose to have your equipment taken to Ski Valet at either the base of Chair 8, Station Mountain Village, the Peaks hotel, the Lumiere and Element 52. This service will give you the ultimate ski rental experience.

How does it really work?

We will coordinate a time to meet you for equipment fitting at whatever lodging property you are staying at here in Telluride. Once you book with Black Tie Ski Rentals we will contact you to set up a personalized fitting time. From the second we contact you, we act as a full time ski vacation concierge. Anything that you would require is only a phone call away.
