I arrived with my wife and two kids at 9am opening time and stood in the ski rental line behind about 30 other people for about 1 1/2 hours!!! We never even made it to the cash register to pay...we were still standing in line when we gave up and left!! Believe it or not, there were people demanding refunds, which caused even further delays to those trying to get in. We complained to the head manager on the way out and he intervened and worked to keep us from leaving. (He gets an A but unfortunately, the rest of the staff we had to live with for 1 1/2 hours in line was very rude. So I'm rating the staff you'll interface with, not the head manager) Many people were in the same boat as us...frustrated at standing around in one of the most disorganized operations around. If you want to go skiing and insist on going to Badger Pass, then by all means you should avoid renting ski equipment from here. Bring your own, rent it from your local sports store, do whatever you can to avoid the rental place here. We went on a weekday too, not a weekend. If you bring our own equipment, you can probably be on the slopes in under 30 minutes upon arriving. If you ignore my advice, you may stand in line for up to 2-3 hours!! In case you wonder, there is no way to pre-order on the internet. The skiing is OK for beginners and intermediates. The lift lines were short and not too bad. But again, bring your own gear. If you can't do that under any circumstances, then go to Mammoth.
