Equipment Hire

Beginner Skis

Recommended for: 0 - 2 weeks' experience.

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.

Lower Intermediate Skis

Recommended for: 1 - 4 weeks' experience.

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.

Intermediate / Advanced Skis

Recommended for: 3 - 12 weeks' experience.

Intermediate advanced level skis are designed to be responsive, engage quickly in the turn and hold on to the carve but at the same time to be forgiving when required, and allow you a bit of a skid where you still need it, especially at the end of the turn. This level of ski is designed to help you to improve your skiing technique.

Overnight Equipment Storage

No more lugging your skis or board back and forwards to the slopes every morning and evening, you can store them 'FREE' with us at either of our shops.

Our ski storage service is a godsend for families with children, people staying a long way from the slopes, or just anyone who can't be bothered to carry their skis home.

Please note that you can also store your boots at our Streetside shop, unfortunately this is not possible at our Slopeside shop due to lack of space.

Please note that Equipment Storage is a Premium service and is not available for those renting ‘Low-Cost' equipment packs.

Courtesy Transport

“Traditionally”, you walk or get the bus to your chosen ski shop then lug all the kit back to the chalet yourself after you’ve been fitted for it. But have you ever thought, quite apart from the hassle, how much time it takes you to get there and back again with all your equipment?

Why not take the easy way out?

We have a full professional team of dedicated drivers and up to six vehicles operating all weekend with a transport co-ordinator organising it all. Just give us a ring when you arrive, and we will send a vehicle to collect you, bring you to the shop and take you back again at the end.

Please note Courtesy Transport is available to and from our Slopeside location only due to parking restrictions etc at Streetside.

The number to call is -

06 16 28 50 08

A new era in ski rental

WHY SNOWBERRY

Who said ski hire should consist of:

  • waiting at a freezing cold bus stop to get to the hire shop
  • standing in a long queue waiting half an hour or more before anyone even approaches you and then not understanding a word they say
  • feeling disappointed and a bit cheated when you're handed a scratched up pair of skis that aren’t really what you wanted and have obviously seen better days
  • being asked your size and handed a pair of boots as if you were at the local bowling alley
  • being told it's a busy week so your 5 year old can't have a helmet
  • hardly being able to ski at all because the boots you are given are actually 2 sizes bigger than your feet
  • asking to change your skis and being told that will cost 15 euros extra, or even worse just that they have no skis left so you can't change at all
  • being served by a spotty 18 year old who seems to know a lot less about skis and skiing than you do
  • Not at Snowberry!

    We've looked at all of this, and everything else, that's wrong with the way ski hire has "traditionally" been done and then looked at how it SHOULD be done. And that's what you will find at Snowberry.

    Elsewhere you pay the same price whether you're one of the lucky ones who gets one of the very few pairs of new skis or one of the unlucky ones who gets kit that's a long way past its sell by date. We don't think that's fair!

    We believe if you want new skis you should be able to book them and be guaranteed to get them, and if you are prepared to compromise on older skis you should get a cheaper price - so that's the way we do it.

    Likewise, with boots and bootfitting, we're horrified how little importance (none!) other shops place on getting it right. It's quite simple, if your boots are wrong you might as well forget it! With other shops, if you're lucky they just might measure the length of your feet but many don't even bother with that.

    At Snowberry we carry out a full eight point, four dimensional foot analysis, and that's before we use our expertise to select not just the right size but the right shape as well from our range of over 60 different boot models.

    On top of that there's our fantastic staff (almost 400 season's of experience between us), our two huge and superbly-located shops and all of our unique, innovative and exclusive "Snowberry Extras" designed to make your ski hire experience - and your whole holiday - as perfect as possible.

    Ski shops are NOT all the same.

    Snowberry is widely regarded as one of the best ski hire shops in the world and for good reason. At Snowberry we have always specialized JUST in rental and we're passionate about making the whole rental experience as great as it can be. Over the years we have taken the whole concept of ski hire back to the drawing board and re-designed it bit by bit.

    Choice of Equipment

    Of course our equipment is what it's really all about, and we certainly believe that it's our job and our responsibility to make sure you get the very best and most suitable equipment for your time on the slopes.

    Once again we've bought way more rental kit than any other shop in town - in fact probably more than most of them put together.

    We don't buy cheap rental versions. We don't put intermediate skis in our advanced categories to keep our costs down. We don't window dress with a few shiny, new skis which hardly anyone is ever going to get. And we don't buy second rate brands that no-one every heard of or chain store own brand models either.

    Nor do we mislead you by telling you our skis are "top quality", "recent", "high end" or whatever. And we certainly don't con you by showing you pictures of the latest models and hiding "or similar" in the small print only for you to find that the "similar" model you are give on arrival is nothing like the ski you hoped for in style, quality or age. Ok, it has a bendy bit at the front and a bit you stick your feet in the middle, but that's where the similarity ends!

    Rent from Snowberry and we give you the choice of this season's new skis, last season's ones or our two season old budget kit - STILL newer and in better condition than the stuff you will end up with from a lot of shops in town. YOU choose how old your skis are, and the price of course matches!
