(Please note that we may have to prepare your order at the time of your visit depending on how crowded the store is if you make a reservation on the day of your visit.)

Our experts will also be happy to check out any unexpected problems with your snow gear.

Our carefully selected models suit the needs of all of our customers, from kids to experts.

Cleaning and sterilization

To ensure that customers can wear our rental clothing and accessories safely and with peace of mind, we use a special antiseptic solution to disinfect and sterilize items, and when drying items we carry out further disinfection using an ozone generator together with a deodorant treatment.
