If you are a beginner, you need skis that allow for easy turns. You should choose our ”beginner” equipment, that perfectly targets this need. If you are a bit more familiar with skiing and are able to go on most slopes then you should consider the ”medium” package. The skis in this option are slightly harder and more stable. If you are an experienced rider that can master all kinds of slopes then the ”advanced” package is the right one for you. It features skis that are more torsion resistant and suitable for tougher rides on steeper terrains.
What size of boots should I choose?
Often the size of the ski boots will match your regular shoe size. Just tell our staff at the rental your shoe number and they will help you find the best boots for you. Ski boots should neither clamp your toes nor feel too loose. For best comfort on a very cold day you want to have some room to be able to move your toes regularly to ensure good blood circulation.
How long should be my skis?
A traditional rule of thumb for the occasional skier is to have skis that are about 10 cm shorter than your body height. Modern skis are quite stable in speed, despite the fact that they are much shorter than slalom skis used to be 10 years ago. Therefore the old belief that ”the longer the skis, the better the rider” no longer applies, really. The preference of ski length is very individual and you can be sure you will find what is best for you and get the length you wish.
Please notice that if you only rent skis at the time of renting our staff will need to see your boots in order to set the correct bindings.
Helmet? Of course! The helmet is the most windproof, warmest and most beautiful hat you can wear while you ski. Furthermore, it can save your life. In our complete packages the helmet is always included, but it can be rented as a single item, too.
