Tahoe Dave's offers gear and clothing from K2, Nordica and Rossignol and rents the same type of gear to beginners and pros. A full-day beginner ski or snowboard package starts at around $54 for adults and around $29 for children, and if you rent for over five days, the fifth day is free. Their snowshoe rates include the shoes and poles for $15 a day and the store will show you the best places to go.
The store also offers discounts for children under the age of 20, students, seniors and those with a military ID. Pre-paid reservations get 10 percent off. Tahoe Dave's also sells demo gear for a reduced rate.
