When Do I Need to Place a Reservation?
We recommend placing reservations at least 2 weeks before your planned climbing or ski trip. If you are climbing in May or June, or plan to rent alpine touring, splitboard, tents, or sleeping bags we recommend reserving 3 weeks in advance.
Do I Need to Prepay My Rental?
Prepayment is REQUIRED on all: Tents, Sleeping Bags, Alpine Touring, and Split-Boards. Your reservation is NOT complete until payment is made for these items. Prepayment is done after a reservation has been submitted online, and a reservation specialist from The Fifth Season has called to take payment.
