“This place is a gem! We needed to rent skis before visiting Shawnee, all the usual places were sold out. We stopped at this place in the morning and were fitted with skis quickly and professionally (and patiently with some great advice, we are beginners and had lots of questions). Definitely will come back and rent from here.”
