Ski & Snowboard Equipment Boots and skis are personally fitted for your comfort and safety. All ski hire prices throughout this brochure are based on Carving Skis. A deposit is required on all equipment.

Clothing For travel and indoors, warm casual clothing is all that is needed. For skiing we suggest a parka, waterproof pants, jumper, a ski cap that covers the ears, padded gloves, thick socks and sunglasses or goggles.
