Ski and Snowboard Rental 2020/21 Rental Information
IMPORTANT COVID RENTAL UPDATE BELOW - PLEASE READ
Due to COVID-19, all rental equipment MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE ONLINE. There will be NO OPTIONS TO PURCHASE IN PERSON AT OUR TICKET WINDOWS, so please plan your visit during the 2020/21 winter season accordingly. A limited number of rentals will be available each day in order for Welch Village to control capacity at our facility. There will be NO OPTION TO PURCHASE RENTALS AT OUR TICKET WINDOWS in person this season due to COVID-19. Please plan your visit ahead of time. ALL RENTAL PACKAGES ARE DATE SPECIFIC RENTAL ITEMS and you MUST use the rental item on the date that you purchase (all sales final; no credit or refunds will be issued if you do not use your rental on the day that you choose and no date transfers will be allowed). If you cannot use your rental due to weather, road conditions, change of plans, or any other reason not listed here, you WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TRANSFER TO A DIFFERENT DAY. In the case of a resort closure, rentals will be transferred to a different day this season. Unused rentals are forfeited and not refundable. Rentals are not transferrable to a different guest. Rentals are only available for the guest name that was added at purchase time and for the date you purchased. PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ & UNDERSTAND THIS POLICY BEFORE PURCHASING.
RENTAL EQUIPMENT IS NOW FOR SALE ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE. We will be putting ski rental packages online only 1 week in advance this season. Stay tuned to welchvillage.com and our social media channels, as this information is changing rapidly.
Once you purchase your rental items, you will receive an email containing your rental voucher barcodes. You MUST print or "screen shot" on your smart phone the voucher barcodes from your email (the second email that you receive from Welch Village contains your voucher barcodes), and bring them with you to the ski area for redemption. The vouchers MUST BE presented at the outdoor ticket windows at our Main Chalet, and will NOT be accepted at Madd Jaxx. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND downloading your barcode vouchers prior to arriving at the ski area, as we have VERY LIMITED cell phone reception and internet service to do so. If you do not come prepared with your barcodes already downloaded and printed or "screen shot", please expect significant wait times to process and verify your rental vouchers.
