Silver Snowboard Hire
This is the lowest snowboard package we offer! Why? Because you progress so quickly on a board, by the end of the week a Bronze package just wouldn’t fit your needs!
The Silver package offers an all-mountain snowboard. Most boarders opt for these as they are so versatile; they are designed to work well in all snow conditions!
If you’re unsure about what you need or are just starting out, this is the perfect board for you!
Gold Snowboard Hire
For Gold Hire, we’d expect you to have been linking turns for at least one full week in resort. Still struggling to link? Check out Silver hire instead…
In our Gold package, there are two types of snowboard available:
Freestyle – these are only available with Gold hire! Freestyle boards are usually a little shorter in length and have a true-twin shape. If you’re a park rider, your board will be cambered (it has an upward curve in the middle). This allows more precise turns and is much more powerful on groomed terrain.
All-mountain – these are newer than the Silver boards on offer and so have seen less snow! All-mountain boards are flatter as they’re designed to work well on all terrains. If you’re unsure about where you’ll spend the most time, we suggest you opt for an all-mountain board!
Platinum Snowboard Hire
Platinum hire is designed for those with their own kit but fancy trying something different. We have two boards available in our Platinum package:
Freeride – these are designed for people who spend a lot of time off groomed runs. They typically have a stiffer flex and are longer than freestyle boards. Freeride often have a directional shape so perform optimally in one direction.
Powder – powder boards love the pow! Similar to freeride boards, powder boards have a slightly wider nose and a tapered, narrower tail. The bindings are often set a little further back on the board to help the rider float through the deep snow! Powder boards have a genourous rocker which also help you float through the pow!
