Please feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail with any questions.

How close is Performance Sports to the slopes?

We are located right in the heart of Lionshead Village, steps from Vail Mountain, the Eagle Bahn Gondola and Chair 8.  Our convenient location is one of the many perks to renting at Performance Sports.

Where can I store my street shoes during the day? And my skis and boots at night?

We have benches for rental customers to store their street shoes during the day.  When you're finished on the slopes, we will glady store your skis and poles overnight.  Due to space limitations we require that all customers take their ski boots with them every night.

I have my own boots. Can I just rent skis?

Of course!  You can rent skis only (or skis and poles only) at any of our rental package levels for about $5 less than the full package price.   Many of our customers have their own boots.  Your own boots, with a custom fit, are a great investment.....a comfortable fit never goes out of style!

Can I rent boots without skis?

Sorry, this is not an option.  Most of the time rental boots do not work with your own bindings.  Use this trip as an opportunity to try the best in ski technology! 

Can I choose a particular demo ski to try?

We have a HUGE variety of demo skis but we cannot guarantee that a particular model and size will be available at any time.  If you would like to request a certain ski, please give us a call.  We will write down your top three requests and do our very best to accomodate.

Mountain weather is very unpredictable - it can be sunny one minute and snowing the next!  Check the latest forcast at
