Re: Ski and Snowboard hire [season/short-term]

IME season rents are usually calculated at 55% of the new price, so if you want new kit every year then it's worth it. Otherwise, you are quids in if you buy and use your kit for 2 seasons. I would always recommend buying your own boots and having them fitted properly - painful feet are one of the quickest ways to be put off skiing.

Re: Ski and Snowboard hire [season/short-term]

Has anyone any updates or recommendations for short term ski rental in Zurich? Have 2 friends coming over and planning to do tour to different resorts so would be handy the rent skis directly from Zurich instead of renting them from resorts.

Do they need boots too? I would never hire boots away from resort- as if they are uncomfortable, you are stuck with them.

Yes they would and even thou I do understand the risk, think getting everything from one place would be easiest.
Personally I am so such a beginner on skiing myself that even so have rented different model of boots at least 4 times and now have my own pair: I would have been happy to ski with any of those models for a week.
