Loon Mountain is one of the best resorts in New Hampshire, but skiing there doesn’t have to be prohibitively expensive. Skiing on a budget starts with proper planning. One key area where you can save money is by renting your ski equipment. Still, even here, you can save money and make your vacation dollar stretch. Here are some tips on how to save even more on your Loon Mountain ski rentals.

Saving Money at Loon

Another way to avoid paying the walk up counter rental prices at Loon Mountain (and you should never pay those prices) is to rent off-site. You’re going to miss out on the convenience of having your gear slopeside, but the savings is usually more than enough to offset that. For example, the cost of basic Loon Mountain ski rentals is $43 per day. In comparison, Great American Ski Renting Company in nearby Lincoln offers an intermediate package for only $37 per day with deep discounts for longer ski rentals. All of their rentals are 2016 models, so you know you’re getting great gear for a wicked price.

Reminders About Gear

First, don’t forget your helmet. Helmets aren’t included in ski packages unless you specifically request them. And you want to specifically request a helmet. After all, helmets save lives. The reason helmets aren’t included in your Loon Mountain ski rentals package is that a lot of skiers have chosen to invest in owning a helmet. It’s a smart thing to do. The daily rate for a helmet averages out to $10 (it’s $13 per day at Loon), where a new helmet only costs about $150. If you’re going skiing more than a couple of weeks in your life, making the large purchase up front will save money in the long run.

Another thing to remember is your feet. Specifically, your socks. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that your average gym socks are going to cut it. Those white cotton athletic socks are too thick and don’t do a good job of keeping your feet warm and dry. Get a few pairs of ski socks. These thin socks are made out of a synthetic or merino wool, so not only are they thin, they wick away sweat and keep your feet happy. A thin sock will also ensure that your ski boot fits closely and comfortably.
