We have 5 different ability levels of adult skis available from beginner to special expert.

Remember Premium 2019 skis and boards are guaranteed new this season!

We won't fob you off with 8-year-old stock that really should have gone to in the bin years ago!

Always rent the newest equipment that you can get hold of. It makes a huge difference to your skiing.

Equipment that is more than 3 seasons old is past its sell by date, will have lost its liveliness, the edges will be blunt and the bindings are potentially dangerous!

Special Expert Skis

Our Specialist Expert skis really are the very best of the very best out there, these are what the real pros ski on. To give you plenty of choice, we have a very wide range of models but we don't have many in each size so if you want these skis get in quickly - you won't find them in other shops!

    Advanced Expert Skis

    Advanced/Expert level is where skiing really starts to become fun and the different disciplines separate quite distinctly, with skis to match. High end piste skis hold on to the carve for grim death while at the other end of the range Off Piste skis are wide, soft and floaty for plenty of flotation in softer, deeper snow or long and stiff as befits a crud-charger.

    Intermediate Advanced Skis

    At intermediate advanced level, skis are designed to engage quickly in the turn and hold on to the carve but at the same time they will allow you a bit of a skid where you still need it, especially at the end of the turn. These are the skis to push you to perfect your carving technique.

    Lower Intermediate Skis

    Once you reach the stage where you are happy for a few hours on your own, without an instructor, you need to step your skis up a level too. Our lower intermediate skis are shaped to encourage the transition from skid to carve yet still allow you to break out of the end of the turn when you need to and are soft enough to let you get away with the inevitable wobbles.

    Beginner Skis

    Soft flexing skis designed specifically for beginners make it easy to tip the ski over on the edge to initiate a turn and collapse easily into a skid or plough, also giving you plenty of time to correct your mistakes before they react. Watch out for other shops putting beginner skiers on old downgraded advanced skis - it's downright dangerous.
