Are you worried about facing the long rental lines at Camelback Ski Resort in the Poconos, PA? Shorten the time it takes to get on the lift by checking out some local Camelback ski rental alternatives. In many cases, you can find cheaper rental prices and nonexistent lines. Here are some local ski and snowboard rental options. Be sure to plan ahead, though – you don’t want to miss any slope time because you forgot your poles or boots.

Great prices on ski and snowboard rentals in the Poconos are available at Mike N Matt’s Snowboard Shop (Route 115, Blakeslee, PA). You’ll find a much wider selection of snowboard rentals than those available on Camelback and at better prices. Their location close to Camelback Ski Resort is a plus, as are the prices – ski rentals for $12 and snowboard rentals for $18. There’s a $150 refundable deposit required. If you’re looking for a place to purchase ski and snowboard gear, skis, boots, poles, and snowboards are available to buy, too.

If you hit this local shop, you’ll find all shapes of skis and comfortable Dalbello boots for a great day on the mountain. Staying at Camelback Ski Resort a few days or more? This shop offers longer-term rentals for reduced rates. Need a tune or repair?
