Meet the Owner

Hi – My Name is Nick Leonard.

Skiing has always been a big part of my life. Having grown up ski racing on the frigid & icy slopes of New England, I moved west in search of deeper snow & better terrain. My introduction to Black Tie came by way of working for my longtime friend Adam with his team in Vail/Beaver Creek. After seeing first-hand how simple Black Tie’s process was for guests, the unrivaled customer service that was provided, and the joy that this sport brings to people of all different kinds, I knew I wanted to own a location of my own and keep skiing a big part of my life. I made that a reality in the fall of 2016 after taking over one of Black Tie’s longest running locations, and have happily been providing guests of Aspen/Snowmass with Black Tie’s signature service ever since.

I love calling the Roaring Fork Valley home. So much can be said about the skiing – fresh tracks in Highlands Bowl, Snowmass’ long & wide groomers, Aspen’s top-to-bottom gondola laps – but there is so much more to offer. From music, arts, & nightlife to world-class fly fishing, hiking, & sightseeing – there is truly something for everyone to enjoy here.

Whether you’re here for a day, a month, or some time in between, let us at Black Tie Ski Rentals help make the equipment rental process the easiest it’s ever been. We provide a wide variety of equipment for all ability levels and snow conditions and pride ourselves in both the quality and variety of our equipment. Along with our awesome team here at Black Tie, we look forward to providing the ultimate ski rental experience for you and your family during your next visit to any of the four wonderful resorts Aspen/Snowmass has to offer.

Let it snow!
