The airlines aren't making it any easier or less expensive to check bags, especially skis and snowboards, and we appreciate that skiers and snowboarders LOVE their gear….but this winter, we advise you to leave your equipment at home. Avoid the hassle of traveling (and paying for) your gear on the airlines, choose equipment that's designed for Bansko’s terrain and conditions, and have it ready to pick up at a ski-in, ski-out location. To make the deal even sweeter, Skipal Sports is offering a 10% discount if you book your skis online before you arrive. So to make a long story short – rent!
Still determined to bring your own boards? Skipal hire shop offers after-ride ski&boot storage by the Gondola. This allows you to straight hit apres ski bars free of boots&skis baggage to care for. They will heat your boots up overnight making them warm and nice for next day on the slopes. By the way this option is included if renting skis&boots with Skipal!
