Whether you live for wide-open pistes for carving, 15-meter tables, the perfect pipe or a big huge board for POW – we have the high performance snowboard for you. There are four general High Performance Snowboard types to choose from.
- FREERIDE High Performance Snowboards: longer in length and semi-directional. Moderate to stiff in flex. Perfect for bigger turns on groomers or soft snow conditions.
- FREESTYLE High Performance Snowboards: shorter in length and semi-directional or twin-tip shape. Moderate to soft flex. Deeper side cut for quicker and tighter turning. Perfect for pipe or park. Great for jumps, rails, boxes and tables.
- PARK/JIB High Performance Snowboards: flexible and short. Twin shape with twin flex for switch riding. Wider stance.
- ALL-MOUNTAIN High Performance Snowboards: a hybrid between Free ride and Freestyle boards. Do everything board, directional in shape, moderate in flex for various types of terrain.
Choose from Nitro, Ride, Never Summer, Option, and Prior High Performance Snowboards. You can switch boards at no charge and we store overnight for free!
We offer the top models from Volkl, Rossignol, Head, K2 and Fischer. Most skiers that have moved past level 1 skiing and are now on blue and black runs predominantly should be using High Performance Skis. If you are linking turns, able to control your speed and enjoy a variety of terrain then you will definitely enjoy High Performance Skis. It used to be that High Performance meant stiff racing type skis. This is certainly no longer the case. High Performance Skis come in a variety of widths and stiffness for many conditions you will find on the mountain. Choose from carving skis, all-mountain skis, twin-tip free ride skis, powder skis and the traditional race skis; we have them all. Most of our guests choose all-mountain High Performance Skis when conditions are soft and carving High Performance Skis when conditions are firmer. Keep the skis all week or switch them to match changing mountain conditions. Start with carving skis in the morning and move to all mountain skis in the afternoon. The choice is yours and at no extra charge. We offer free storage, unlimited ski exchange, tuned and waxed equipment and of course the awesome Affinity – INTERSPORT Rent service we are famous for!
About Affinity Sports
Affinity Sports was founded in Whistler with the goal to deliver a higher level of service coupled with superior rental products than were traditionally available to renting customers. Our history in the snow sports industry is a long one and we felt that we could use our expertise to enhance the overall rental experience for clients.
We developed our product having recognized the hassle of transporting your gear while traveling and conversely the frequent disappointment of rental equipment available in many resorts. We determined that if we made available great rental equipment, a broad range of products and elevated the level of service, skiers and snowboarders alike would have no reason to visit Whistler with their own gear. Consequently, we tune and wax all of our equipment, all the time, allow and encourage our customers to try different models to suit the conditions, FREE, and are committed to doing our best to serve your every rental need.
The Affinity difference will be immediately evident when visiting any of our 6 Whistler rental locations. One of our staff members will greet you immediately upon entering the store and will assist you with every aspect of the rental process, answering any questions that you may have along the way and explaining the differences between our many products. Whether it be skiing waist deep powder or cruising groomed runs with the family, our goal is to get you outfitted with the equipment that will work best for you.
Additional services we offer all our guests include:
- Extended hours of operation. All of our locations are open from 8 am until 10 pm daily. Our shops are much quieter in the evenings making this an ideal time to get set up with your gear. This ensures that you’ll be ahead of the pack the next morning and will have first shot at the fresh snow.
- Free overnight ski and snowboard storage saves you the hassle of lugging your equipment all the way back to your local accommodation.
