It’s been a busy few weeks up to the start of the 2017/18 winter season in Bansko, but we’re happy to announce that all of our new rental equipment is good to go! Ski & Board Traventuria has received hundreds of new pairs of skis, boots, poles, snowboards and accessories and we’ve spent countless hours mounting bindings during the off-season. That is over a third of our whole inventory, which will be new for this season, with the other two thirds no older than 2 years old. This year our clients can rent the latest models from a variety of top brands, such as Rossignol, Atomic, Fischer, Head and more as part of out TOP and VIP ski packages. In the snowboard department, we have new models from Burton, K2 and others and our new boots continue to use the BOA lacing system for easy on and off. For the children, we have new Fischer and K2 skis.
Premium Ski Package
If you choose to book with us a Premium Ski Package, over the Basic Package, you will have access to our newer skis. (The difference between a Basic and Premium Ski Package). The standard Premium equipment is best suited for skiers level 1-3. The equipment has been picked to be adequate for beginners, but can also handle more aggressive skiers. This line consists mostly of last year’s TOP skis by Head, Fischer, Elan and other brands. For more advanced skiers we suggest upgrading to the TOP or VIP rental equipment.
TOP Ski Supplement
During the booking process, you can upgrade your premium ski package to have TOP or VIP equipment. New for this year in the TOP lineup are 2017/18 models such as the Elan Explore X; Head The Link (Pro); Blizzard Race RTX; Atomic PERFORMER XT; Fischer XTR Pro Mtn X; Rossignol ZENITH SX; Salomon XDR FOCUS and others. In the lineup, there are models suitable for a wide range of skiers, level 1-6. If you’re not sure on what to pick, our experienced staff will help you choose the best ski for your ability level and riding style. The skis in this line are all brand new, until their first use. Afterwards, they are fully serviced after each rental.
VIP Ski Supplement
This ski supplement consists of the best skis our rental shop has and is well suited for advanced skiers, level 4-9. New 2017/18 models we have are the Rossignol Hero Elite; Fischer RC4 Curv and Atomic Redster MX skis, all still in their original wrapping. As part of the VIP lineup, we also have brand new 2016/17 Head Supershape skis and all of last year’s VIP skis, most of which have only been skied a few times. We don’t suggest the VIP supplement for beginner skiers, as the TOP lineup is better suited for them. An extra bonus to getting VIP equipment is the ability to change your skis as much as you like. If you want to try another model or take a pair of powder skis when there’s fresh snow, you can.
Ski and Board Boots
We know how important comfortable ski and snowboard boots are so, like every year, we’ve replaced a large amount of our rental stock with new boots. We have a wide variety of models from Head, Fischer, Dalbello, Rossignol, Nordica and Tecnica. If you find your boots uncomfortable even after skiing in them, let us know so we can find you another pair. Keep in mind that all boot makes and models differ in fit, so don’t despair if the first pair of boots you try aren’t comfortable and feel free to take your time during the fitting process. All of our boots are dried and disinfected after each rental. You can also order boot drying during the booking procedure to have freshly dried boots every morning.
Our new snowboard boots are all equipped with the BOA lacing system. This system replaces the traditional shoelaces with metal ones, which contract by turning a knob. This makes for much easier on and off and a more secure fit. New models for this year from Salomon and Head, with many pairs of small and children’s sizes.
Burton and K2 are the main brands we’ve stocked with 2017/18 models. We have a wide variety of sizes, suitable for kids and adults. Bindings are adjusted for each client depending on their shoe size, leading foot and any personal preferences.
Rental Clothing and Accessories
We also offer rental clothing and protective gear. We have ski jackets and pants in a wide range of sizes with good waterproof and breathability ratings. For protection, we offer helmets and goggles for rent, which you can order during the booking procedure. We also have new ones for sale in our shop from a variety of brands.
