Ski holidays should be a pleasant experience but let’s all admit they are less relaxing than beach holidays! With so many things to organise, especially on family ski holidays, the first few days quickly become stressful and exhausting rather than enjoyable. Once you’ve sorted out ski gear and ski passes for everyone, ski school for the older kids and childcare for the younger ones and worked out where everything is and how it all works, you might well feel like you need another holiday! One great way of saving time and stress is by pre-booking ski equipment online before you leave. Read on to find out why.
There are, of course, many companies offering ski rental online so we decided to take a closer look at what is on offer. We scoured the internet and came up with what we think to be a pretty good all-round ski hire service. The ski hire company Ski Republic seems to really understand what you want, need and expect from your ski hire. When you read their “manifesto”, you really feel that you would be well taken care off on your ski holidays. This is what Ski Republic believes in:

Being lucky enough to have parents who were crazy about skiing, my love for the mountains started when I was 4 years old on our first family ski holiday to Austrian ski resort of Obergurl. One ski holiday a year was never enough and tears rolled down my face as I looked out the back window of the car on the drive down the valley on the way home!
