We needed to rent ski equipment for 4 adults and 3 kids in Northstar. The timing of our rental home and the tight space in our rented van spurred us to try this service. It was so easy and the staff was professional. I never want to rent through a shop ever again. Great service.

Not only does Black Tie do equipment fittings at your accommodations, their equipment is great and service is exceptional! I wish I remembered their names, but the two guys who brought our equipment were awesome! So nice, right on time, and made sure everything fit well. Easy process, well priced compared to most rental places, and they are just a... More

We made the mistake of renting at Squaw first - inefficient and poor quality rentals. We waited an hour in line. Black Tie can take specifications online or over the phone and deliver or have everything ready for you for pickup. Great quality equipment and knowledgable staff. Easy and affordable. They have us in the system now and we will... More

I have now used this service two times - really not sure there is anything more they can do to improve. The service and equipment is excellent - it is obvious that customer service and satisfaction is top priority. The staff is very friendly and helpful. And they are very flexible in terms of drop-off and pick-up.

Tech showed up right on time and gave us a couple of choices for skis. Ended up with K2 Rictors which were in excellent shape. The whole process was quick and convenient and surprisingly a little cheaper than renting from the resort. I will absolutely do this again next time I go out west.

They set me up with everything I needed for my 4 day ski trip to Tahoe. I ordered over the phone a week ahead, and they arrived at my rental house with a van full of skis and boots the evening I got there. They fitted me with boots and skis that performed perfectly. A friend who showed up without... More

There is no reason to stand in long lines, schlep your skis, boots and poles.....Black Tie is the difference between an OK ski experience and a truly enjoyable experience. Let's face it, the worst part of skiing is walking in uncomfortable boots and carrying equipment. Black Tie eliminates the part of skiing we don't like. More than that, these guys... More

We used Black Tie on our recent trip to Northstar California. The front desk at our resort told us about them. The reservation process was super easy. The guys arrived on time with a variety of equipment options. They were helpful in picking our equipment compatible with the conditions and our ability levels of skiing/boarding. The equipment was top notch... More

We were put onto Black Tie by some friends. After a quick chat on the phone re sizes and ages the BT team arrive at our accommodation with a selection of our size gear.
