Interested in trying out a new style of riding or skiing before buying? Visiting northern Minnesota and want to explore our diversely and nationally renowned bike and ski trails? You're in luck! We have an excellent selection of high-quality, well-maintained equipment ready for you to rent.

At Continental Ski and Bike we have an assortment of bikes, skis, and youth equipment to rent. All of our bike rentals include a helmet, bike lock and local knowledge of our trail systems in Duluth and northeastern Minnesota. We also have all of the gear that you may need for a fantastic outing, including clothing, nutrition and hydration solutions available for purchase. 

Reserve In-store

Due to COVID-19, we are not doing online reservations this winter and will do all rental on a first come, first served basis. Please stop in and we'll do our best to get you outside playing in the white fluffy stuff!

Winter Rentals

This winter we are offering the following items for rental:

  1. Black Diamond Glidelite skis. These things are a blast! Think snowshoe float, but you can glide down the hills, sweet! With a universal binding that will fit most standard winter boots, it's easy peasy to get outside and explore the backcountry.
  2. Tubbs Wayfinder snowshoes. Loads of float and an easy binding system that utilizes the BOA system. We have several different lengths to fit people of different sizes.
  3. Alpine Demo skis. If you're looking to demo some sweet downhill skis before dropping a ton of cash, this is the way to do it! We will have several options from several of our vendors including Elan, Black Crows, Rossignol, and Atomic. Alpine demo skis do NOT come with boots or poles and will require a binding adjustment to fit your boots, please bring in both of your boots if you plan to demo some skis. 
  4. XC Skin Ski Demo. Skin skis are all the rage, and for good reason! They glide and kick well with zero maintenance to the kick zone, pretty darn slick! As with our alpine demo, these skis do NOT come with boots or poles, this is just the ski and binding (NNN), so please come with your boots and we will make sure to adjust the bindings as needed. 

Don't forget that if you rent/demo an item and love it so much that you'd like to buy some, you can take that rental money and apply it towards the purchase!
