Availability Disclaimer

Please note that our rental fleet is relatively small and we may not always have the specific size or type of ski that you want. If you have prepaid for your skis and we don`t have anything suitable available for you at the time of rental, we will offer a full refund and direct you to a larger shop with a wider selection. Please note that providing accurate sizing details on booking will help to alleviate this issue.
