Ski rental in Denver/maybe Frisco/Dillon/central location?

Not sure exactly where to post this - planning to visit and stay with friends who live in Vail, and will ski there for a couple days. Will also ski the next few days on our own, somewhere in Summit County, location still TBD. Does anyone have recommendations on central location to rent skis - perhaps somewhere easy access from I-70 towards Denver, so we can do easy pick-up and drop off?

In the past we rented in Breck from Blue River Sports but this time I think we need easier central access within Summit County and/or towards Denver. Thanks!!

We have been very happy with Precision Sports; it is right off I-70 (exit 203) on Hwy 9/Summit Blvd.

When we have out of town guests in need of skis, we take them to Maison de Ski in Idaho Springs. Not the usual chain. It's a bit of a throwback to 'old Colorado' (they used to have a 25 cent lift ticket in a frame on the wall). Here is a Google maps street view link (hope it works):

Web site is http://maisondeski.com/

You can rent skis and (important!) helmets. Idaho Springs has two exits from I-70. Very convenient on and off.

If you want to rent in Denver try Larson Ski and Sport on Kipling. It's about 1/2 block south of I-70.
