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.
1. Falls Creek Cross Country, Situated at the start of the ski trails, Windy Corner Car Park, Falls Creek. They have a vast selection of skating skis and boot-binding systems.

2. Rocky Valley Ski Centre, Kiewa Valley Hwy, Mount Beauty, (about 600m from the race office)

3. Snow Trek and Travel, 161 High St Wodonga (85 km from Mt Beauty on the road between Sydney and Mt Beauty) This is another specialist cross country store.
