CERTIFIED SKI RENTERS

It’s not just the beginners and occasional skiers who rent first class equipment. The best players prefer the latest models, or things that are adapted to current conditions on the slopes. Also they like to test the skis before they buy it themselves. One of the requirements is good equipment rentals, with perfectly maintained equipment and super service. Therefore the quality mark of the Ski-Arena Sauerland is created. This certification is granted to certain ski rentals. In the Holiday World Winterberg, different ski rentals have tested their equipment, with which a certain package of services is guaranteed.
