“Rental World is one-stop shopping at its best. A 10- to 15-minute tour allows buyers to view and browse the entire scope of rental snowboard and Alpine products, as well as accessories and the latest innovations. All that, plus free breakfast and coffee—why would anyone miss it?” said Rick Kahl, editor of SAM Magazine

This showcase helps buyers narrow their choices and makes the buying process simpler. It also provides a respite from the intense whirlwind that the buying process can be, enabling retailers to make decisions in a more relaxed setting. This is especially important for rental buyers, as their success impacts the introduction of newcomers, and therefore the future of skiing and snowboarding.

If I make good decisions here, then I can help our customers enjoy their experience on the mountain. Ultimately, that helps them enjoy the sport as much as I do, and that’s my end goal.” –Cameron Parker, buyer, Wolf Creek Resort
