  • WARNING! I would discourage renting your ski-material at this shop, they’ll charge you excessively and unfairly, ignore your mails/signed letters, don’t inform about any insurance and lie over the condition of your material! Long story short: At returning my rented snowboard to the skishop at the end of the week (8/02/2019), they charged me € 500, according to them the new price of a Burton 150 radius 2019 board, on top of the € 149 renting cost, because the board was damaged and as they said: “past recovery”. First, they charged me € 185 more than the actual new price of a Burton 150 radius 2019 board. The new price of this board is actually € 314.95, confirmed by Burton (given in attachment). Secondly, they falsely claimed the board was “past recovery”, because at home (Belgium) it could be repaired for € 35 at United Brands in Sint-Katelijne-Waver. Lastly, they ignore every attempt you make to set this right, mails and even signed letters…
  • Awful experience here today. Not a big review poster, but very rude staff so I'd suggest staying away from this place .Walked in today hoping to buy some gear. Said bonjour as I walked inside & smiled at the guy working the shop. He immediately decided I was an English speaker so he asked "how can I help you?" I said "ah parlez Anglais?!" He looked at me like I was an idiot and pointedly repeated "how can I help you?" So I figured English it was, even though I do speak French. I asked if he had equipment for snowshoeing. He pointed to snow boots you would use for walking. Not snowshoeing. I tried to explain again .He said he has no idea what I am talking about. So I began walking out and he yelled "bye bye!" Clearly not a huge fan of Americans or English speakers. He was so rude, it was actually appalling. Too many choices to buy gear in this resort area - definitely avoid this shop .
