Soldeu Ski Rental - Sports Calbo Rental Shop
We work with Sports Calbo because of their reputation for excellent service, their location, and their huge selection of equipment. Their shop is found right in the centre of Soldeu, in the same building as the gondola to access the slopes, meaning that the shop is extremely convenient. On the ground floor they have a big shop where you can purchase clothing and accessories, but walk down the ramp or take the lift to -1 where you will see the Sports Calbo rental shop.
El Tarter Ski Rental - Nordic Esports Rental Shop
In El Tarter we have chosen to work with Nordic Esports as they have a fantastic location, right next to the slopes, plus they have a great choice of equipment. Their shop is just above the ticket windows, where they also have a snack bar.

Soldeu Ski Hire & Snowboard Hire
On your winter holiday, unless you have several trips per season, you will probably find ski hire or snowboard hire both easier and better value than bringing your own equipment, so we've put together a guide telling you what to expect.
Before you travel, check you have your weight & your height measurements to hand, preferably in metric although if you just have imperial measurements then staff should have conversion tables in the hire shop.
At the Soldeu ski hire shop, firstly you will have your boots fitted and it is important you have them correctly fitted to ensure that you feel comfortable and are safe on the slopes. Usually snowboard boots are soft and are fastened with either laces or "dial up", twisting a dial to tighten them. Ski boots are hard and are normally fastened with buckles. Your boot fitter will make sure they fit correctly before you move on to getting your snowboard or skis fitted.
When being issued your skis or snowboards there are many factors that help to decide how long they will be including your experience, height and weight, then your bindings will be fitted to your boots. Those of you going snowboarding need to know whether you ride "regular", ie. with your left foot forward, or "goofy", ie. with your right foot forward. This impacts on how your bindings will be set. Snowboard boots securely fit in to the bindings, and attached to one should be a leash which wraps around your leg and clips in to place when you ride. If you are skiing, your bindings are fitted to length of the boot, followed by the DIN setting which is adjusted according to your experience and your weight. A ski binding is designed to release the ski when enough pressure is applied, normally when you take a tumble!
If you're on skis, the last things to collect are your poles. To check the size, with your ski boots on, turn one of your poles upside down placing your hand just under the plastic bit near the bottom (the basket) - your arm should be at a 90 degree angle.
Your rental equipment will have serial numbers etched or possibly stuck on and it is definately worth noting them down to ensure that you keep a track of your skis, snowboards and boots throughout your stay! This is particularly important to make sure your ski boots fit your bindings plus that the bindings are set correctly. Also, when your return your equipment at the end of your stay the hire shop will check to ensure you are returning the correct equipment.
