Let’s be honest, travelling with skis or a snowboard royally sucks. Dragging a bulky, oversized bag across the airport terminal, up and down stairs, cramming into hotel elevators, paying for excessive baggage fees—none of it is fun.
Sure, you might look really cool, and people at the airport might ask: Where are you going skiing? Or say something like: What’s in the bag? An opportunity to talk about your upcoming ski trip to an exotic, far away destination. But you don’t want to talk to anyone at the airport anyway. You just want to plug into your favorite podcast, get through the security checkpoint and be on your merry way.
And, there are definitely those of you who say: I like bringing my own skis wherever I go! We get it. We prefer having fine-tuned gear at-the-ready, too. But what if there was professionally tuned, brand new gear waiting for you at your destination, and all you had to do was bring your ski boots? What if you could swap out skis or snowboards based on the day’s conditions and not feel stuck riding the same thing everyday? What if you could save a bunch of money on baggage fees and buy a few more rounds at the après bar instead? Sounds dreamy.
Dream no more: Haus Quiver is here to transform those fleeting thoughts into a reality. With a simple monthly membership—starting at just $40/month—Haus Quiver redefines the way you travel to the mountains. Offering a hassle-free demo program and a professionally tuned fleet of skis and snowboards from K2, Faction, Icelantic, Burton and Never Summer, Haus Quiver is rejuvenating the way gear rentals work, from the reservation process to the easy, “no strings attached” exchange program.
Offering pick-up locations at 12 North American destinations—Breckenridge, Vail, Crested Butte, Frisco, Telluride, Keystone, Beaver Creek, Northstar, Heavenly, Park City, Stowe and Whistler Blackcomb—Haus Quiver has you covered at some of the most sought-after ski areas in the world.
The entire Haus Quiver process is built around maximizing your time on the mountain, not wasting time waiting in line at the rental shop. So, the moment after you book those airline tickets and confirm your hotel (if you’re in Breckenridge, consider the flagship Gravity Haus as your place to stay), simply reserve the skis or snowboard you want to ride via the easy-to-use mobile app, skip the line at the shop when you arrive to pick up your gear, get a quick boot/binding check from the in-house pros and hit the slopes. Seriously, it’s that easy.
Cross-country ski vacations don’t need to be synonymous with hauling gear. And you shouldn’t have to choose your demo equipment from a shop’s leftovers. Nah, that’s not how you want to do it. Instead, join Haus Quiver and unlock more potential from your next set of demo skis or snowboard (and lighten your load) when you visit the mountains. Select single-day or multi-day rentals that pair with the conditions and your riding style. Forget the ski bag at home and grab your boots. That’s all you need to get started with Haus Quiver. How you ride, where you ride and which gear you choose—well, that’s all up to you.
