Free transportation service
Complementary pick up to get your equipment fitted at the store and drop off back at your accommodation with your equipment after fitting. Call 0261 850 506 when you arrive and are ready to be collected for your fitting. At the end of your stay, leave your gear with your hotel and Central Snowsports will collect it.
If you want to try something new, swap your ski gear in for snowboarding (or vice versa). You can do this once for Standard Range Equipment or as many times as you like for Premium Range Equipment, during your rental period.

Unlimited equipment changeover
