Great equipment and service. Weather was really bad when we visited, and they handled my early equipment return with true customer appreciation. They treated me like they'd like my repeat business, and they will get it!

Always top of the line and newest gear and great service. A French guy was our tech and was both incredibly knowledgable and personalable. I am pretty familiar with other local shops and think Dave's is always the best bet.

Top rental place. We booked for our family of 5 online and got a 10% discount by paying up front. The guys in store were extremely professional, gave good advice and sound tips. Very reasonable value. Slightly limited selection of gear, but it is the end of season. Highly recommended!

It was easy and quick to get our cross country ski gear and they gave us some good suggestions on where to go. Will definitely go back to Tahoe Dave's Skis & Boards

The price and gear make the poor service acceptable! The employees were just not very friendly, they gave good advice but did not seem interested in helping me very much.

Ski shops staff can vary from incompetent to highly competent. We found Dave's ski rental and tuning staff HIGHLY competent. We came here ONLY to rent skis and poles. The equipment guy listened to our needs, our skill level, etc., asked one or two questions, and then made two recommendations; we chose one (Volkyl skis). The skis had sharp edges... More
