We know that renting gear is not necessarily your favourite part of a winter holiday. But for us this is where the FUN begins. We try & make the rental process as easy as possible. Everything we do is driven by our love of skiing & riding & we want to help you get the same BUZZ, whether it’s your first time on snow or whether you’re a Masters Racer. We want to help you have the BEST winter holiday EVER.
Rented From Us Before?
Let us know what gear you want & when. We already know your size and equipment settings. In the case of kids, we will need to re-measure them as they are bound to have grown since the last time you were here! Just email us at least 5 days before your first day on snow at for any specific requests or re-hires.
Renting For The First Time?
When you come into the shop we take the time to fit the gear to your specific requirements giving a personalised service for maximum safety and comfort. Our busiest time of the day is between about 4pm and 6pm, but we are open from early June to early October, 7 days a week.
