  Ski Equipment Rental


When you're a beginning skier or just you want to practice the sport to know if it's the right one for you, it makes sense to rent ski equipment. Once you're sure that you're going to spend enough time on the slopes to justify buying ski equipment (which can be expensive) you can invest in your own ski gear.

Where to Rent
There is a pair of options for renting ski equipment. Many local ski shops rent equipment packages. One advantage to renting locally is that you can pick up your equipment ahead of time and avoid waiting in a line at the resort ski shop. On the other hand, if you rent equipment at the resort you may be able to store your equipment during the day or overnight free or for a nominal fee.

Ski Rental Pricing
Skiers can rent a package or rent items individually. You can take a complete set of equipment, skis or boots only. Helmets and poles are available separately. Rental equipment prices vary depending on the type of equipment you are renting, how long you are renting it for, and where you are renting from. Some packages start as low as 20 EUR per day, others can cost 50 EUR or more. Some resorts automatically add on damage insurance, for a few dollars per day.

Plan Ahead
Plan ahead and reserve your ski rental equipment in advance, principally during busy holiday weeks and school vacation weeks. That way you'll know for certain that the equipment you want is available and ready when you arrive to pick it up

What you will need to buy
You will need to buy ski clothing. At least, you'll need a comfortable ski jacket and snow pants, ski gloves, a layer of long underwear, comfortable socks and goggles. The following is a list of what you will need to wear: Gloves, Hat or helmet liner, Goggles, Ski socks, Long underwear, Turtleneck and sweater or fleece, Ski pants and jacket. When you're starting out, you won't need to buy high-end clothing, but, do make sure that it's warm and waterproof.
