For 2015, SLR have raised the bar again. Over the last couple of years we installed and have continued to improve our database rental system from Sports Rental, which provides our customers with a fast reliable service that both remembers them and their previous rentals, thereby making repeat rentals a hassle free experience. Last year we started to offer our repeat customers with a web/smart phone messaging system, that allows us to set up the equipment before you arrive based on your previous rental(s) , so all you need to do is pay and leave.... no queues...well that's the idea :)  Give it a try, it's well worth it, as new for 2015, if you use the booking system 4 times during the 2015 season, all further rentals during the 2015 season will be at the 'cheaper' Additional Day rate!!!

For more info on the booking system refer HERE.

Also for 2015 we have been upgrading the shop again .... gone are the old wooden ski racks and in comes a European styled ski racking system from ABS (Montana) of Switzerland. It increases our storage capacity on the shop floor, and improves our fleet management, and with over 800 skis, that is important!  See inside our shop here

Also for 2015, we have tweeked our rental prices, and now offer 7 day and 1 month rates. These are a prepaid rate which gives an amazing daily rate if your legs can handle skiing every day! We are also going to trial an Accidental Damage Insurance scheme this season. This will not cover lost or stolen equipment, or equipment used in a reckless manner, ie skiing down the road, or on areas with limited snow cover!! 

See all our great rental rates here:
