"THE place to go in Tahoe for anything snow rental related. There are a few Rainbow Mountain stores located all over the Heavenly area, but this one is definitely the place to go- a bit out of the way, and not located right on the mountain, but the folks in this store know their stuff.
Stopped in to rent skis, boots, and snow pants and jackets for the wife and I, since we live in Florida, and did not want to purchase anything that we wouldn't use again. The staff helped us pick out exactly what we needed, didn't pressure us into anything, and gave us good equipment at a great price. If you're staying in the Tahoe area- look for those coupon books, and you're sure to find coupons for these guys in there somewhere, offering up some savings that will make this experience even better.
Staff was super friendly, very knowledgeable, and they offered up everything we needed at a great price. Save more by booking on their website, or by using the coupons. Can't recommend this place enough- this store RULES."

"Rainbow Mountain Ski & Snowboard Rentals is the place to go for snowboard and ski rental packages! A couple of my friends needed to rent some snowboards for our trip to Heavenly, so we stopped by Rainbow Mountain because it was conveniently located on the way to the resort from our cabin.

The snowboard rental package was about $25/day, which included 15% off for mentioning Yelp. They had a good selection of top quality boards for beginners, intermediates, and advanced boarders. They had brands such as, Burton, Head, and K2. If you're afraid of damaging their gear, you can add on a $2/day insurance. The insurance is a plus, because you don't know what can happen when you're hitting the slopes.

I forgot to pack my boarding socks, so I bought a pair for $13. I also got my personal board re-waxed for an additional $5(machine-wax). The machine-wax lasts a few days and they had the hand-wax for about $12, which lasts a few weeks. I only needed it waxed for a day so I opt for the $5 one.

The customer service was excellent at Rainbow. They were fast and most importantly, friendly. You can tell that they value their customer's business."

"I got my performance snowboard rentals for 20% off when I made an online reservation. You can pick it up after 2pm the day before, service was friendly, quick and efficient. The shop is located right by the California Heavenly slopes. I would highly recommend getting rentals from here."
