Make sure everything is in good condition, and it still fits. Of course, skis, sticks, and snowboards are a must. However, if you don’t own any of this, you can either buy it or rent it in Aspen or have us get it for you. We work with exclusive ski butlers who take care of this whole process while you relax and focus on having fun.
