What is the difference between Sports and Performance rentals? Which is right for me?
Sport Ski and Board Rentals: Suited for beginner to intermediate skiers and boarders, these products offer easy turn initiation and have a forgiving flex making them ideal to progress your skills. Our Sport range is best for skiers and riders starting out or looking to progress their skills at slower to moderate speeds across all ability levels.
Performance Ski and Board Rentals: Recommended for intermediate to advanced skiers and boarders, performance skis and boards offer excellent ease of use with a stiffer flex, while providing better grip and stability at moderate to higher speeds.
Please note our Performance range is subject to availability
