This Ski Rental and Equipment Shop is minutes from the slopes. The staff are experienced trained skier's with a real passion for providing excellent equipment and service at a sensible price. I have used this family run business for a number of years and wouldn't recommend anywhere else in South Lake Tahoe.

My husband and I rented skis two days during our stay in Lake Tahoe. There's a lot of competition around but if you want good customer service and not have to deal with the lines at Heavenly for rentals, this is the place to go! Prices are very reasonable and equipment is in great shape!

We stopped in here because the cord on my wife's snowboard bootliner had broken and we needed to get it replaced. We hadn't bought them here, but the guys replaced it quickly and when we went to pay, they only suggested $5! I gave them $10 anyway to say thanks, but it was really good service and greatly appreciated.

We had a group come in to rent boards and skis here. The employees were incredibly friendly and accommodated our large group easily. The check in process was quick and informative, especially for the new boarders in our group. The return process was super quick. They have the best pricing in the area and go above and beyond to provide... More

We rented boards and boots for our 4 kids from Rip-N-Willies. They kept all the sizes on file so when I went back again the next time I didn't need to re-measure the kids feet or anything. I din't even need to bring the kids to pick up the gear! Super convenient. We rented probably 5-6 times from them last... More

Rip N' Willies was recommended to us by friends who frequent South Lake. We were very pleased with the gear and the service. They had the right gear for the whole family. Would definitely use them again. My wife was surprised to notice her improved skiing ability using the skies recommended by Willies. Their coupon made the higher end performance... More
