Ski Hire Reviews
Good enough for our guests? Good enough for us!
Skiworld is a company run by skiers, for skiers, and our overseas staff use the same ski hire suppliers as our guests. What better way to find out about our equipment hire (and get some choice recommendations!) than from the people that use it on a daily basis?
"I have been riding my K2 Missdemeanors for three and a half seasons now and I’m still in love with them. They are great all mountain skis so I can use them in all snow conditions. They have some pairs of K2 skis in both our hire shops here in Val d’Isere and I would definitely recommend giving them a go! Amongst the gold ski hire selection they also have Rossignol Unique 4s which are ultra-lightweight carving skis for women with 20% less weight than their predecessors.
