We have cross-country skis, poles and boots, snow shoes and pulk (sledges) for hire.

Many of our rental skis are backcountry or BC cross country skis. These are wider and more stable than a track ski and have metal edges. They do fit into the pressed tracks.

We also have classic track skis with NNN bindings available to rent. We have waxing classic skis and now some new classic skis with ‘twin skins’. Please specifiy which type of track ski you would prefer when you enquire and we will do our best to fulfill your request.

Our skistall staff are available each morning to offer ski servicing and expert advice.
We also sell ski wax and cross country ski accessories.

Some ski hire FAQ:

Can I bring my own cross-country ski boots?
You are very welcome to bring your own boots. Please check which bindings will fit your boots and tell us when you request ski hire.

Our track skis have Rotafella classic NNN bindings. Our metal-edged skis have wider BC bindings.

What are the best boots to wear for snowshoeing?
If you would like to bring your own boots for snowshoeing – a good option if you will be doing more than one day of snowshoeing, then warm, waterproof hiking boots with good ankle support are best. The ankle support is important and for this reason light trekking shoes are not suitable. Fabric summer hiking boots may not be up the the job of keeping you warm. Gaiters can be a good idea if you have them and are a personal choice.

If you are joining us for the snowshoe day as part of the guiding programme then you are welcome to wear your rental BC ski boots which do the job well for that snowshoe tour.
