Rentals FAQ's

What happens if the boots you deliver don’t fit?
We carry plenty of spare boots to every fitting so we will always ensure you receive a boot which fits correctly.

I have often had problems with getting shoes and boots to fit – should I mention this in the booking?
We have boots to fit all sizes and shapes of feet but if you often have a specific problem (for example you have wide feet) then please mention this in the booking and we can come to your fitting prepared with appropriate boots for you to try on.

Can I exchange boots and is there a cost?
If you try your boots and they seem like a great fit to start with then you do a run and they hurt, come back and we will get you swapped out at no extra charge. Keep coming back until it is perfect, our goal is to make your skiing as enjoyable as possible. There is only one charge for adult boots so it will not affect your final bill if you change to a different variety of boot.

Do you have touring boots, and what is the price for them?
We have a great selection of touring boots and hybrid boots; the cost is the same as alpine boots. And you can change between them as you need.

How important is it to provide accurate details when pre-ordering equipment?
The details you provide during the booking process help us to select equipment appropriate for your ability and size and also allow us to safely configure the release settings on the skis. The more accurately you are able to answer these questions, the easier it is for us to select and safely set up your equipment.

How will I recognise my place in the storage?
There is a very simple numbering system, where you have the same number for your boots and skis and this corresponds to a number of the racks.

What happens if I lose my number?
Don’t worry we can look you up in the system and give you another sticker.

Can I leave my helmet and gloves with my equipment?
You are more than welcome to leave your helmet on your skis here at the end of the day, however we don’t have the capacity to store clothing unfortunately. However, we do have a different storage facility. These are lockers where you have room to store clothing and skis etc, they also have showering facilities. These are two separate products and have a different price.

I’m arriving into town the evening before I want my rental to start, can I collect it to save a rush in the morning?

Will my rental equipment be fully serviced before I receive it?
Yes. All equipment is fully serviced and waxed before every rental.

Do you provide any form of cover against theft, damage or loss of equipment?
Yes – we offer optional comprehensive cover which covers your skis or snowboard against theft on the mountain, loss or accidental damage with no excess to pay. This is charged on a per-day basis for the duration of your rental and the price depends on the category of ski or snowboard you are renting. When making a booking you have the option to either include or opt-out of this cover. If you choose not to take the cover, you will be charged the full replacement cost of any lost, stolen or damaged equipment.

Is theft a problem in the resort?
Generally speaking, theft is not a major problem in resort but sadly it does occasionally happen. There are a few measures you can take though to reduce the risk of having your equipment stolen:

• Whenever possible, keep equipment in site

• If you are leaving the equipment outside a mountain restaurant, pair up one of your skis with one of someone else’s skis in your party and separate them. This stops your skis being picked up by mistake by someone who has similar skis, and also reduces the risk of opportunistic theft.

How do I return the equipment?
If you didn’t have the equipment delivered, then please just bring the equipment back to us here in the shop. Make your way down the returns desk and one of our shop assistants will gladly take your equipment and settle the bill with you.

When do I pay?
You will pay upon return if you collected your equipment from the shop. This enables you to swap equipment without needing to get a refund.

Can I pay cash?
You can pay with card, cash, or you can put rental equipment on your sporting club account.

I have had an injury and can’t ski any more.
We hope you recover quickly, and will of course refund the cost of your rental.

Bootfitting FAQ's

What happens if I need to come back and get my boots readjusted?
That’s no problem, you can come back as many times as you like, that’s why we offer a 100% guarantee.

Does the price of the boots include adjustments?
Yes, the price of the boots includes the fitting and any needed adjustments.

Do I need to make an appointment if I want adjustments?
We recommend calling us to book an appointment in advance so we can guarantee that we will be able to fit you into the schedule.
