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. YMCA Windy Corner Cross Country Ski Centre. Situated at the start of the ski trails, beside the car park at Windy Corner, Falls Creek. They have Salomon skating skis, but not the Pilot boot-binding system.   http://www.camps.ymca.org.au/discover/howmans-gap/windy-corner-cross-country-ski-centre.html Email: <This email address is being protected from spambots.

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.
