With a wide selection of different stores and outlets to pick from, you’ll not be lost for choice when it comes to hiring skis or snowboards in St. Anton. Equally, if you’re looking to buy your own equipment out in resort the choice is most impressive.
Different skis for different levels
St Anton has a high quality of skis for hire and they generally tend to focus on intermediate and advanced level skis.
Intermediate level skis are normally good quality carving skis. The skis are normally only one season old or new that winter, and are suitable for all keen intermediate skiers. They’re also generally suitable for beginner skiers as well.
Advanced level skis are the highest grade of ski available, and they’re usually the highest quality available as well. These are generally this season’s new models of carving skis, and are suitable for intermediate/advanced skiers.
