Keystone Sports, where they have "Great Gear, Great Service, and Great People" offers discounts of up to 25% on ski & snowboard equipment rentals when attendees book online any time prior to rental pick up, at: www.rentskis.com/ksymposia. Rentals may be kept for multiple days and will follow the guest's lift ticket purchase, i.e.: purchase for "2 of 3 days." Guests are encouraged to book in advance because not only is it easier for those booking and paying but when you arrive to pick up your rentals, the line is shorter for those with advanced reservations, the discount is bigger, and there are more staff dedicated to these customers.

Guests without a reservation can still receive up to a 10% discount on-site when they mention they are with Keystone Symposia.
