What is Black Tie Ski Rentals?

We are Telluride’s Premier Ski and Snowboard Rental Delivery Service.  Black Tie will come directly to guest accommodations to fit an entire family. After the fitting, guests can choose to have their equipment taken to Ski Valet at either the base of Chair 8 in Telluride or Station Mountain Village.  This service provides the ultimate ski rental experience.  

How does it work? 

We will coordinate a time to meet each client to fit them at whatever lodging property that they are staying at in Telluride. Once you book with Black Tie Ski Rentals, we set up a personalized fitting time. From the second we contact the guest, we act as a full-time ski vacation concierge.  Anything they require is only a phone call away.
