Suicide Six Ski Rentals
Suicide Six is located in Pomfret, VT, just north of historic Woodstock. It got its name from the founder of the ski area, who often joked that to ski Hill 6 would be suicide. When he opened the resort, the name stuck. Still, despite the name, Suicide Six is a great little ski area well worthy of a weekend trip or a stop during a ski tour of the Vermont hills. If you’re contemplating stopping by, whether it’s for a day or for a week, you’ll need skis. And if you’re travelling, chances are, you’re going to need information on Suicide Six ski rentals. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered; both on the latest prices and deals and the knowhow on how to save that little bit extra.

Another way to save some money on your Suicide Six ski rentals is to rent off site. While there aren’t any ski shops exactly close to Woodstock, there are plenty of them on the routes leading into the town. If you’re coming from the West along SR4, you’ll pass through Killington, which has a ton of ski rental places. Rates are extremely low there. For example, Root’s Ski Shop offers basic rentals for only $15 per day. That’s over half-off the resort rate. With that sort of savings, you can more than afford to upgrade your car rental to one with a roof rack to drive the skis to the resort.
Furthermore, Here’s Something Else
When you get your Suicide Six ski rentals, don’t neglect that one essential piece of equipment: your helmet. Just because this ski area doesn’t have the biggest vertical in the state doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wear a helmet; far from it. But you probably already know that and have figured the extra five bucks per day into your ski rental budget. Did you know however, that in some cases, buying your helmet is actually a smarter decision? Think about it this way. A new helmet runs about a hundred dollars. If you plan on going on three weeks of skiing in your life; not this year or next, but ever, you’ll save money in the long run by just buying a helmet.
On the other end of your body, you’ve got your feet. When it comes to ski socks, you should know that you don’t want to just grab a pair of socks out of your workout bag. Cotton socks are great for running in the morning, but you don’t want to use them in your ski outfit. They’re too thick to let your boot fit properly and they don’t wick moisture away from your foot. So at the end of the day, you’re left with feet that are sore, wet, wrinkly, and frozen. Get a good pair of ski socks made of merino wool. You won’t regret it.
