After a long summer, the 2019/20 winter season in Bansko is upon us! But just because it was off-season until recently, that doesn’t mean we were sitting around doing nothing. For 2020 we have plenty of new gear, new staff members, an improved interior and much more. Continue reading to find out what’s new for this year at Ski & Board Traventuria and we hope to see you this winter!
As always, we’ve replaced a large portion of our rental equipment inventory. Over the summer we received and set up over 400 pairs of skis, snowboards and boots throughout all of our rental classes. Most interesting are our new VIP skis, which we’ll be reviewing independently during the season. The most notable new skis in that class are the Head V-Shape V4, Rossignol HERO Elite MT CA, Dynastar Speedzone 4×4 78 Xpress² and the Fischer XTR The Curv Pro, all of which are this year’s models. For the most advanced skiers, who want a pure-breed race ski, we’ve stocked up on Head i.GS RD World Cup Rebels skis. We also have a wide selection of brand new ski boots, helmets and goggles for rent.
Our biggest upgrade this winter is in the snowboard department, where we’ve introduced Burton Bindings, which are specific for rental use. The main advantage of the new binding system is that we can set up your stance and binding degrees much faster, thus shortening queues in the shop. The bindings also allow for toolless adjustments once on the mountain. Want to change the angle of your leading foot, but don’t have a screwdriver on you? Don’t worry, just flip a switch, rotate the binding via the engraved degree references and you’re good to go. Apart from bindings, we also have a few hundred new snowboards available for rent from Burton and other top brands.
We’ve substantially expanded our ski clothing rental line for this year. We have a wide selection of different models of jackets and pants for anyone who just hasn’t found the need to buy their own. Whether you like baggy loose-fitting garments or something slimmer, you’re bound to find something that fits your style perfectly.
Over the summer we’ve made some upgrades to our shop interior as well. Most notable is our improved queue management system and self-check-in desks. We are always trying to shorten the queues and this year you’ll be spending less time in line and more time on the mountain. We’ve also freed up some more space for products you can purchase, such as socks, gloves, chapstick and etc.
But wait, there’s more!
Apart from the new gear and upgraded interior, we have also introduced insurance for your rented equipment. No more need to worry about what will happen if you lose your snowboard or bend a pole during a fall, it’s covered. We’ve also bought new manual base repair machines for the nastier scratches.
