Bronze Ski Hire
The bronze package is only available for ski hire. Bronze skis are perfect for beginners who have never skied before, or for people who want to take it easy because of previous injuries.
Bronze skis are usually a few seasons old but they have softer edges, which is great when you’re learning to ski or you’re travelling at slower speeds.
If it’s your first week skiing, why not look at the Beginner’s Combo Package, which includes:
- Full Bronze Ski Hire Package
- 10 Hours of Level 0 Lessons (i.e. beginner)
Silver Ski Hire
Silver skis are good for people who have skied before. Silver level skiers are comfortable with faster speeds, sharp turns or breaks; using Bronze skis at these speeds could be unsafe.
Silver skis have usually seen less mountain time than bronze skis and so have retained more of their original strength. This means they’re more responsive and their edges are tuned to help grip the snow. Silver skis are usually all-mountain skis.
Once you begin to free-ride/freestyle, you’ll require gold level skis, but until then, Silver skis are perfect for what you need!
Gold Ski Hire
If you need Gold skis, you’re comfortable pushing the limits of piste-based skiing and are looking for something more flavourful: enter the focused-discipline gold skis!
With silver skis, the only type available was the all-mountain ski! The Gold package gives you freestyle advanced piste and off-piste skis.
Freestyle – a centre mounted twin tip ski, allowing for perfect swing weight. These are highly recommended for anyone looking to get into park skiing. Centre mounted skis do take some getting used to, so if you’re not looking to spend the whole week in the park, check out our other options…
Advanced Piste – the advanced pistes ski range is perfect for those looking for a stuffer ski to charge and really explore the mountain. Usually a directional twin with a narrow waist, these are perfect all over the mountain!
Off-piste – these are made for those looking to spend a bit more time of the groomed pistes. Normally a directional twin at 98+ underfoot with an early rocker.
Platinum Ski Hire
Our Platinum range is aimed at people who have their own equipment but may need something different to get them through the week. We have two types of ski available in this range:
Advanced off-piste – want to push it in the back country and glide knee-deep through the snow? These are the skis for you! Our Platinum skis are usually from the Rossignol series, so expect some of this season’s 98+ underfoot skis with boat loads of rocker!
Race – paid for race training but your park skis aren’t going to cut it? Make the most of our rental offer and take out a pair of our Platinum race skis! We use Head and Rossignol as our race selection so you won’t be left disappointed…
