I stayed in a condo that had in -house service with Black Tie. I never had it so easy. Just sign online, describe your skill level, age, weight, height and your boots and skiis are delivered and fitted in your condo,hotel or house. No line, and no hassle.

“Great Service”
Reviewed March 8, 2011

This was our third visit to Crested Butte and our third time staying at Westwall Lodge. Conveniently located on their main level is a Ski Valet located slopeside, operated by Black Tie Ski Rentals. Black Tie is a class operation with excellent equipment. It couldn't be easier. You can book everything online and if you have rented with them in the past, they have a record of your equipment preferences, skill level, etc. If it is your first rental with them, they show up at an agreed time and place to try on boots and suggest skis for your ability level. They'll even come to your room or condo to try on the equipment. If at any time you don't like the equipment, you can swap it for something else. This year we had a misconnect for the fitting time (possibly due to a conflict with the Super Bowl), but they did leave a message to this effect on my cell phone which I never picked up. But it all worked out fine because they had my equipment ready at the Ski Valet the next morning.

The young men that worked at the Valet were all extremely pleasant and helpful. For us older folks it's nice to have an extra hand getting your boots on and off and carrying your skis outdoors to the rack. You do pay a bit of a premium price for all this service, but it's worth every penny!

“Best ski rental in the world”
Reviewed January 24, 2011

We've rented skis and boots from Black Tie in Crested Butte the past two years, and I would highly recommend everyone to rent their equipment from them. They gather your info prior to arriving so they can bring equipment to your front door almost the moment you arrive (great for being on the first chair the next morning instead of waiting in line at a regular rental shop!). Returning equipment is just as convenient. All equipment is top notch and in pristine condition. The techs who bring everything are courteous, efficient, and knowledgeable about the equipment and the mountain terrain. We had a variety of skiers this year, from beginners to expert young adults to old timers....they got it right for all of us.
