Ski hire information for international visitors.
It is better if you can bring your own equipment. However, there are several possibilities for hiring skis. As Hoppet time is very busy, you should book them before you come to Australia to be sure of not missing out.
There are three main ski hire shops that have good quality cross country ski equipment. Snow Trek and Travel (in Wodonga) has the best range of skis for classic technique.

Many skiers bring their own boots to be sure of a comfortable boot.
Contact the businesses directly and tell them what you require. They will need to know the ski length, skating or classic, ski pole length, and, if you are bringing your own boots, the binding system you require.
