Equipment Demo at BNS

One of the most valuable ways we learn about equipment is getting it out on snow. Testing skis, stone grind patterns, waxes, boots, poles and clothing is a huge part of what we do and we make it a priority at BNS. Every year we close down the shop and bring ALL of our staff to test out the gear from our vendors. In addition to the two days we spend on snow there, we have an extensive fleet of demo equipment that we are constantly testing ourselves so we know what works and how different equipment will suit different people.

We know that trying gear out before making a buying decision is very helpful, so we have an extensive selection of equipment available to test out on snow. In addition to the rental and demo gear available at our Boulder and Midwest shops, we also offer several free on-snow demo days where we add our regional reps' demo fleets into the mix to give you a great opportunity to find what is best for you. See the events page for our demo schedule.

Visit us in our Boulder, CO or Bloomington, MN locations to rent skis for a trip or just take out a few different demos to test out before you buy. See the chart below for details and pricing on what equipment we have available to rent/demo in each location. We will apply one day's demo fee toward the purchase of similar equipment, so trying before you buy is free!

BNS has premium quality demo and rental equipment and the rental period is generous. Pick up anytime after noon and return skis by noon two days later for a single day rental. Each 24 hour period after this counts as an additional day. For example, if you pick up skis Monday at noon and return Wednesday at noon, that is a single day rental. A weekly rental is any seven-day period.
