Going to Vail area in June: Best places to playboat and rent gear ?

I need some help. Im going to be going to Vail in late June for a week and I need to optimize the best play parks and features in a 2 hour area. Some spots I would like to hit would be Glennwood but thats all I know of beside the one in Vail village. Where are the best parks and what is the best spot where I can rent the most up to date equipment (Rockstars)?
Thank you
Patrick

Good shop would be Alpine Quest.

Steamboat is about 2 hours so you could add the town run for the C&D holes and they did more work on them this winter. Also would add Buena Vista as its within your range. South Canyon wave can be in which is below shoshonee but not as far down as Glenwood on the Colorado. Don't remember the outcome of the Lawson hole rework, but that is within your driving limit and used to be my favorite hole when I lived down there.

Glenwood (single feature) and BV park probably get the most hype and justifiably so.

Avon 5 or 10 miles west of Vail has a park that has had pro competitions,supposed to be better than Vail. You can easily check out a couple spots that are good at some flows behind the rodeo grounds in Eagle, apx. 20 minutes west of Vail on the way to Glenwood .
