Always such excellent service here. Our group of 12 hired boots, skis, boards, helmets etc. Nothing was too much trouble, time taken to ensure everyone was happy and comfortable. Only charged us for the time used (as some gave up early). Cannot recommend highly enough

Well, James is a very intelligent boot fitter! I went with a problem, he didn't try to sell anything unnecessary and with a few tweaks to my existing boots and a good 45 mins later I was a happy skier.
