Ski and Boot Hire

Skis, bindings, skins and harscheisen/ski crampons (these usually come supplied as a package) and also boots can be hired if necessary. Please contact one of our recommended hire shops at your course base and order them well in advance – let them know your objectives plus your ski level, and they will advise the best setup for your needs. On our Norwegian and Greenland trips, any ski rental equipment should be taken from home as there is no local hire. Expect to pay approx. 200 Euros per week to hire touring skis/bindings/skins/harscheisen/poles, or 250 Euros a week also including boots.
