A Courteous Reminder

The Ripley Rental Department would like to encourage all season renters to make rental reservations with a 30+ minute lead time prior to coming to the hill.

Rentals reserved with less than an adequate lead time can expect a delay in picking up equipment.

Due to increased need for rental equipment for our guests, Renters who make equipment reservations that are not picked-up will not be allowed to pre-reserve equipment on future visits.

Rental reservations are a courtesy and were intended to decrease your wait time and need to come inside the building. If issues with pick-ups continue to increase, it may become necessary to discontinue this service.
