We are incorporating CDC and local Health Department guidelines to keep our guests and employees safe. In addition, we are committed to the following:
Employees will wear face coverings and practice physical distancing protocols whenever possible.
All rental equipment will be sanitized prior to each usage. Our vehicles and physical locations will be thoroughly and frequently disinfected.
We’ve added limited and contact free fitting options to ensure maximum safety and peace of mind for both our guests and employees.
COVID-19 Operating Procedures
The procedures outlined below are designed to safeguard the health and safety of our guests and employees while providing the excellent customer service and outstanding ski and snowboard equipment that Black Tie is known for.
DISINFECTION: All tools, workstations, vehicles and shop surfaces are sanitized daily using an EPA-approved microbial disinfectant.
PRE-DELIVERY: All rental equipment (including, but not limited to, helmets, skis, snowboards, boots, and poles) is disinfected using an EPA-approved microbial disinfectant while wearing masks before being loaded into a sanitized delivery bag. The vehicle interior is sanitized daily and between any staff transitions.
AT DELIVERY: We wear masks to unload and deliver your rental equipment and adhere to social distancing guidelines through this process. Additionally, we sanitize any tools utilized for adjusting bindings, etc. and our paperless waiver system further minimizes contact. Our preference is to conduct fittings in an outdoor environment or open areas (lobby, foyer, garage) when possible. Enhanced procedures to provide limited or contact free boot-fittings are available based on the preference of our clientele. We ask that all guests wear masks throughout the entire fitting. Guests are strongly encouraged to bring their own face covering, but we can provide disposable masks for those in need.
AT PICK-UP: Our staff will wear masks and sanitize all returned rental equipment.
EMPLOYEE HEALTH SCREENINGS: We are requiring employees to check for COVID symptoms before each shift and to stay home if they feel unwell. In addition, employees will undergo daily temperature checks at the start of each shift.
Other Important Notes:
We prefer cashless transactions. Gratuities for our delivery technicians can be added to your credit card.
We also understand the difficulty making decisions during these uncertain times and want you to feel confident in reserving your rental equipment. Black Tie will give a full refund to any guest who cancels their reservation more than 48 hours in advance. Guests who need to adjust their reservations within 48 hours, please reach out to the location you booked with directly.
Want your equipment delivered? We will bring e-bikes or paddleboards to your vacation lodging or hotel. A Black Tie gear expert will go over your gear with you and get it set up properly. Once you are done with the equipment, you can return it to our shop or we will come pick it up!
Pick up your gear at our walk-in shop! Conveniently located at 660 North Main Street at the north end of town right next to Barrio 75. Not only a great place to get your rentals, you can ride off right from our front door!
Locally grown in Sun Valley!
Black Tie Adventure Rentals was founded on the belief that the best way to explore Sun Valley is off the beaten trail. Harry and Brent first connected over our love of skiing and the uniqueness of the Wood River Valley and we are excited to deliver new ways to explore the valley. Whether it’s paddleboarding on Alturas Lake, catching sunset from the top of Galena Pass, or effortlessly cruising between the symphony and dinner; Black Tie has you covered!
Enjoy Your Adventures,
Harry & Brent
The lightest weight model in our lineup, the RadMission is a slick, stylish single-speed electric hybrid bike. Old-school cyclists love the ride-feel, similar to a road bike, while apartment-dwellers relish the ability to lift it up multiple flights of stairs.
All fun, no hassle. The single-speed drivetrain, push-button control pad, and accessible step-thru frame get you around stress-free. This head turner delivers on more than just style: it can help you carry cargo, passengers, and even your morning joe.
The ebike model that started it all: Hop on our flagship fat tire and you may never want to leave. Now in its sixth version, the RadRover 6 Plus powers through all types of weather and terrain, with the technology and design to make it your best ebike ride yet.
The Galaxy SOLtrain is the flagship board of the SOL Paddle Board fleet. Featuring the Patent Pending GalaXy Stringer System, the GalaXy SOLtrain is ideal for lake cruising, river running, ocean exploring, fishing, yoga and carrying a small front passenger, you can literally take this paddle board wherever, whenever.
The GalaXy SOLuno Inflatable Kayak is constructed with the highest quality materials and designed for durability and performance. Our patent-pending GalaXy Stringer System coupled with our industry-leading drop stitch technology, adds a level of rigidity that is unprecedented. Where other brands kayaks flex or "taco" when loaded with a heavy paddler or gear, the GalaXy Stringer System won't. An extra layer of material is added to the bottom of the tubes, bow and stern to provide a puncture resistant boat that can take on any paddling adventure. The removable fin allows paddlers to paddle in a shallow water setting or with the fin inserted for ultimate deep water tracking capabilities. The inflatable seat can be removed and is compatible with an attachable kayak seat to help with back strain and support. SOL has added many features to our kayaks to separate them from the competition! The kayak comes with a durable carry bag for traveling and storage.
