Conditions are glorious, worthy of strapping into the most epic equipment possible.

That’s where Powder House Ski and Snowboard comes in.

Seven locations in the South Lake area sell or rent skis, snowboards, gear, and even apparel. We’re talking the best of the best, the stuff you dream about owning or trying.

If a more mellow winter excursion is desired, have their team of experts set you up with cross-country skis or snowshoes, then point you in the right direction for some mind-blowing lake-level exploration.

Powder House boasts the biggest rental network in the basin, so it’s easy to get your gear and go.

“We’re out here for the mountains, and love to work in them,” Moorhead shares.

Sales and Marketing Manager for Powder House Ted Moorhead explains how their team explores the area for their customers regularly.

They celebrate Tahoe’s renowned winter sports and the extraordinary region they live in and love to show visitors how to also.

However, it’s important to Powder House pros that they maintain their down-home, local ski shop vibe, as well.

Get your Gear

Visiting South Lake and forgot your goggles?

Head to Powder House, where you can rent some without forking over the full amount for a new pair. Same with most other outerwear and apparel.

Seeking to splurge on some high-end gear? Their staff can explain why it’s worth the investment and how best to care for it.

Or take advantage of their try-before-you-buy program and get up to two rental days free while testing new skis or snowboards on different conditions.

If you’d like to check out the resorts in North Lake Tahoe, too, Powder House has partnered with Tahoe Dave’s so equipment can be rented in South Lake, then dropped off at any Tahoe Dave’s location on the north shore.

For beginners and those looking to progress their skills, Powder House also has a season-long rental program.

With ski and snowboard packages starting at $159 for kids and $199 for adults—a price that includes tune-ups and size exchanges—adventurers can make sure of what they want before making a bigger investment.

Pandemic Possibilities

Pandemics won’t stop skiers and boarders. While making reservations at, say, Heavenly or Sierra-at-Tahoe, visit TahoePowderHouse.com and reserve your gear as well.

While there are plenty of Powder House pick-up places, they can also deliver reserved equipment to you in the Heavenly area.

When reserving online, you get 25 percent off. Plus, the fourth day is free. If your legs need a break, you essentially get a rest day gratis.

Easy and economical is excellent, isn’t it?
