Skis aren't the only thing for rent at Vail ski shops. Now, visitors who get to the mountain and realize they've forgotten that warm hat, those toasty gloves, or even a winter coast can just rent one.
A pair of ski pants will cost you 12 dollars for the day. Gloves just six bucks. And a warm winter hat is a bargain at five dollars a day.
The rentals are not just for the absent-minded, says Adam Greenier, owner of a Vail ski shop. A lot of his clothing rentals go to tourists who arrive in Colorado, only to find an airline has lost their luggage.
Squeamish about wearing someone else's clothes? Not to worry, Greenier says his shop washes the items after every few rentals.
