Skiing And Snowboarding Rental Gear Delivery Moves From Fad To Fixture
A growing trend in skiing and snowboarding has hundreds of thousands of participants renting ski gear online to be delivered to their door, rather than visiting "brick and mortar" rental shops.
This trend will continue to grow, because more Americans are taking up downhill skiing and snowboarding at the same time that delivery services are booming for almost all goods and services, notes Bryn Carey, CEO and Founder of Ski Butlers.
The company will deliver its millionth ski-rental-day early in winter 2018-19: convenient, hassle free packages from $31 to $71 include delivery to hotels, condos or wherever. A Ski Butlers’ trained ski technician personally fits boots, skis, snowboards, poles - including the latest technology and all freshly waxed and tuned. Helmets and other accessories are available too.
More new skiers and snowboarders will drive this growing trend.
"The winter sports industry is thriving, up 5 percent overall in the 2016–17 season," according to the Snowsports Industries America (SIA) 2017 Participation Study, including a 6 percent growth in young snowboarders.
Simultaneously, Americans want almost everything delivered, from Target orders to McDonald’s deliveries.
Also supporting continued growth for Ski Butlers and the delivery of rental ski gear overall is the combination of veteran skiers and snowboarders facing increasingly-expensive airline baggage fees and the fact that most new skiers and snowboarders will rent gear.
With Ski Butlers, skiers and riders have the latest gear and avoid long lines at busy ski shops. This allows them to spend more time on the slopes and less money on airline luggage fees - plus no schlepping.
Ski Butlers has succeeded by focusing on delivering personal service along with the latest gear and a sundry of snow sports accouterments. Skiers and snowboarders not only having more time on the snow, but more time with friends and family too -and more freedom while on vacation and far less time preparing your own gear -no driving around to find a shop for wax and tune up.
New this winter at its North American locations, Ski Butlers will offer the innovative 2018-19 Rossignol "7 Series" line with high-quality carbon fiber for elasticity and dampness, and the 2018-19 Rossignol Experience line (including the 88 and 94).
