The City only has 8 sets of ski equipment, which have all been loaned out.
However, if you don’t have skis don’t panic. We will try to get you on skis. Forrest Southam has a supply of classic skis, boots and poles that can be rented at Sticks N Stones at 49 East Main Street. For a season of rental skis, contact him directly at forrestglade at gmail dot com . Forrest is super easy to work with. He may have some skate skis, too (ask him about that). Additionally, you can rent classic and skate ski packages at the BYU-I Outdoor Resource Center (208-496-7337). I think that’s a daily rental, not a seasonal rental. In the past, they’ve offered ski club members a discount - ask them about that.
Finally, I have a couple of my own skis that we can try to fit people into as a last resort, but very limited boot sizes. We’ll do what we can - we want everyone to get out and ski.
Buy your own
Go ahead and look around on Craig’s List and local stores if you’re interested in purchasing skis (which I recommend if possible). They do NOT have to be high-end expensive skis. As you get into the sport more, you may want to upgrade eventually. Feel free to start on either classic skis (cheaper, and a good way to start) or skate skis (more pricey, but fun).
The closest ski shop is probably Idaho Mountain Trading in Idaho Falls. The closest specialty shops (which have a bigger selection) are in Driggs (Peaked Sports, Yostmark), West Yellowstone (Free Heel and Wheel), and Jackson (Skinny Skis). There’s also shop in Pocatello (Barrie’s Ski & Sports).
There used to be - and maybe still are - some consignment shops that might be a good spot to check:
Victor Outdoor Seconds in Victor, Idaho
Headwall Recycle Sports in Jackson,Wyoming
Also, I've been told that Play it Again Sports in Idaho Falls sometimes has good nordic ski equipment.
