Cross Country Rentals
The Summit Station at Royal Gorge is the premiere location in Tahoe to get outfitted for your cross country adventures. However, if you would rather begin your cross country journey at Sugar Bowl, snowshoes, classic and skate ski equipment can be rented from Village Rentals. To get to Village Rentals, walk out of the Gondola and up the slope past the Nob Hill lift. There you can slip into some boots, clip into your skis, and off you go into the magical trails of Royal Gorge XC right from the door. At the end of a beautiful day of good clean fun, return your gear to Village Rentals without having to lug it anywhere at all.

Village Rentals offers a limited selection of cross-country and snowshoe gear. Summit Station at Royal Gorge offer a more expansive selection.
