Powered by positive buzz percolating on the pages of the Wall Street Journal, Ski magazine, and sporty blogs, Ski Butlers's staff of deliverymen and service techs takes the hassle out of outdoor recreation with delivery and pick-up service of ski and snowboard rentals. Starting early in the morning, drivers head to hotels, lodges, and igloos around ski slopes to outfit sportsmen of all ages with high-quality skis, snowboards, and supplies from brands such as Rossignol, Atomic, Elan, Fischer, and Völkl. Butlers carry an assortment of boots and poles to ensure that riders secure a well-fitting rental. After fittings, which can take as long as an hour, butlers slip renters the digits to their help line. In the event of an equipment issue, butlers meet skiers on the mountain to resolve the problem with the minimum possible delay and hassle. The company has grown to service 30 of North America's top ski destinations, including Whistler, Salt Lake City, Telluride, Lake Tahoe, and Thomas Jefferson's cowlicks on Mount Rushmore.

For the past 20 years, Canyon Sports has helped adventurers safely scan the Wasatch Range with a series of shops specializing in equipment rental and maintenance. Throughout the winter, Canyon Sports equips mountain visitors with rental skis and snowboards. It also distributes lift tickets for local resorts including Alta, Snowbird, and Deer Valley, freeing skiers from alternative methods for getting to peaks, such as stowing away in a yeti's pouch. During warm seasons, the shops rent mountain bikes and road bikes and can also fine-tune riders' personal cycles.
With the natural ease of a caterpillar transforming into a different species of caterpillar, Utah Xtreme Paintball changes its sprawling indoor turf field several times a week. The space may be reconfigured at any time as an NPPL tournament field or a scenario field, complete with sheltering structures such as a brick turret and padded barriers camouflaged as stone walls and wooden crates. In either field configuration, referees watch over players as they vie for victory.
Before players engage each other in the arena, Utah Xtreme Paintball's pro shop outfits them with gear such as semi-automatic markers and tanks of CO2 or compressed air—each of which is regularly checked and maintained. The climate-controlled field allows for year-round play, and a staging area with concessions and flat-screen TVs ensures that any visitors could technically live there for a full year.
