The cost of any of our ski and snowboard programs does not include ski or snowboard equipment for your camper.For those of you who don’t have equipment for your camper, there are 3 main options that we recommend:
1) PURCHASING USED EQUIPMENT – $
This is likely your least costly option. We always encourage parents not to rent but to purchase all of the equipment that they need for the season. You can easily find all of the equipment that your camper will need second-hand from another parent that is selling their child’s gently used equipment. We suggest starting your search online on sites like Kijiji or Facebook Marketplace. Additionally, there are many ‘Ski Swaps’ that you can visit where people bring their used equipment to sell.
2) PURCHASING NEW EQUIPMENT – $$
This is a more costly version than purchasing used equipment, but probably still less expensive than renting all season. If you would like to purchase new gear, we recommend visiting our friends over at The Sign of the Skier (2794 Yonge Street, Toronto ON). They are super knowledgeable and they might even give you a deal if you mention that your child is an Evolve Snow Camps camper this winter.
3) RENTING FROM MOUNT ST. LOUIS-MOONSTONE – $$$
This is probably your most costly option as it will be $40 per Saturday for the skis/snowboard & boots, along with $10 per Saturday if your camper also needs to rent a helmet (click here for more information about rental prices at MSLM). Along with the cost, I do not recommend that option as your son would also have to go with his coach to get his equipment every Saturday morning which will mean he will miss a lot of riding time.
