“Wild Ernest Rocks!!! The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and quick to get you up on the mountain for that fresh Summit County powder!!! This is the only shop I ever use for my tuning and rentals when guests come in from out of town!!” JM on Yelp

“Casey, the owner is knowledgeable and ensures that his staff also know what they’re doing and are friendly and efficient while getting everyone geared up, including the little ones.  I’ve rented from them for over 15 years, and the service and equipment has always been top-notch.
I won’t ever rent from anyone but Wild Ernest while I am in Summit Cty.” KR on Yelp

“Wild Ernest is the only ski shop I will go to in summit county. Their staff was extremely friendly and helpful and got us geared up an ready to go in no time. I will definitely come back the next time I am in the mountains.” MW on Yelp

“Very cheap rental prices.. but most importantly the service is topnotch. My boots weren’t fitting right after my first day.. and I went in and they had me try on at least a dozen different boot configurations/sizes.. they spent at least an hour with me until I was happy. I felt so bad for all the work they had to do at the rock-bottom price I paid.. but they were very pleasant and helpful about it like it was no big thing. Sold me and my friends for life.” CM on Yelp

“Very helpful staff. Staff was friendly to us and even went out of their way to benefit us. Will definitely return!” NS on Yelp

“Off the beaten path relative to other ski shops unless you’re staying on the Wildernest community but absolutely my favorite rental shop.  It’s not an assembly line “get you in and get you out” type of shop, but one where staff interact and have a good time with the customers.” DW on Yelp

“Absolutely the best place to get skis in the Summit County area.  Ski rentals are about half what they cost to rent on the mountains, with much better service and attention.  We certainly are not expert skiers, but their staff take the time to talk with us, recommend particular style of boots or skis, and make sure we are set to go, never feeling rushed.  We stop by on our way to the resort to pick up and drop them off on the way back to the airport – fairly easy access and definitely worth it!” DD on Yelp
