Equipment - Seasonal Rentals

Please clearly label your child's equipment with their name whether it is owned or rented.  Duct tape and a permanent marker on poles, skis and boards will ensure that each child has the correct equipment when they leave the bus and avoid confusion later.  Please send me the serial number of your Viking-rented equipment as that ensures I can identify any swapped equipment easily. In addition, there will be a Corral for stowing your skis/boards during the day to avoid any misplacement or swapping that frequently occurs since there are so many rentals.  

Order Mabel’s Labels
Blizzard has a fundraiser account with Mabel’s Labels. They produce  labels that stick on anything. We highly recommend purchasing a sheet of these labels to apply to every article of clothing and equipment that you bring to Blizzard or just to label your everyday clothing and personal belongings. Enter “Blizzard” in the box for our club. The Mabel’s link is: campaigns.mabelslabels.com 

 “My child has their own ski or snowboard equipment.”

Bring it with you to the bus. There is room on the bus for everyone’s skis, snowboards, boots, and other clothing and equipment. Everything is brought to and from the ski area each week—there is no long term storage at the ski area.  Please ensure that personal equipment is clearly marked with the member's name.

“My child needs to rent equipment.”

We prefer that you rent your equipment for the entire season. Daily rentals from Wilmot delay class starts and take adults away from the supervision of the larger audience of members.

Seasonal Rental

We recommend the following ski shops for seasonal rental:

  • Viking Ski Shop
    3422 W. Fullerton, Chicago, IL or

We no longer facilitate the daily rentals from Wilmot.

Please clearly label your child's equipment with their name whether it is owned or rented.  We will be providing weather-proof Blizzard stickers for your skis and poles, or duct tape and a permanent marker on poles, skis and boards will ensure that each child has the correct equipment when they leave the bus and avoid confusion later.

Please send me the serial number of your Viking-rented equipment as that ensures we can identify any swapped equipment easily.
