DISCOVER THE ADVANTAGES OF A SKI RENTAL AT FONT-ROMEU FOR YOUR WINTER HOLIDAYS
Do you like the idea of spending a few days skiing when the slopes open? The atmosphere of a ski resort during the winter season attracts you and you would like to enjoy a stay in a family environment? The ski resort of Font-Romeu is the ideal place to recharge your batteries with your children. You will also benefit from a welcome rental service, which we invite you to discover below.
FONT-ROMEU RESORT: WHAT IF YOU CHANGE ALTITUDE?
The Font-Romeu ski resort is one of the most popular with families. Situated at an altitude of 1800 metres, in the heart of the Catalan Pyrenees, the place abounds in breathtaking panoramas. You will enjoy a multitude of pistes suitable for all levels - with 15 green runs, a snowpark and fun environments adapted to the youngest. And if you're not used to the slopes and want to give yourself the best possible chance, Font-Romeu has 4 ski schools - including a French ski school (ESF) and an international ski school (ESI). You will also easily find a ski rental sign at your service to help you choose the best equipment.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SKIS BEFORE LEAVING?
Whether you are used to ski resorts or are a beginner, it is important to have equipment adapted to your profile and your skiing ability at your disposal. Your cross-country ski hire adviser will recommend that you choose a pair of skis according to your technical level and the frequency of your practice. Examining your morphology is also essential to determine the type of equipment you will need. For a totally beginner profile, you will tend to go for a pair of skis that are easy, accessible and forgiving. For an intermediate profile, it is best to opt for comfortable and progressive skis. Finally, if you are at an advanced level, you will be recommended comfortable and high-performance skis, or even very high performance skis.
WHICH RANGE OF SKIS FOR WHICH PISTE?
You prefer to ski for leisure, and you wish to be able to discover all the slopes of the ski area? For that, you will need a "Piste" range, with rather short skis with a narrow skid. In this way, you will benefit from an increased reactivity. Thanks to these skis, you will negotiate turns more easily and you will be less subject to vibrations. You don't know exactly what kind of snow awaits you in Font-Romeu and would like to enjoy yourself on all terrains? Here again, a selection of skis from the "All Mountain" range could suit you. This equipment is generally easy to handle and very comfortable, thanks to a runner with an average width of 80 mm. This makes it easier for you to negotiate larger and smaller turns. If you're often outdoors, the Freeride range may also be of interest to you, thanks to its versatility and generous ski size. Don't hesitate to ask your ski rental professional for more information.
SHOULD YOU BUY OR RENT YOUR SKIS?
The question is relatively simple to deal with: if you are familiar with the ski slopes and never miss an opportunity to reach a winter sports resort as soon as the slopes open, you probably have your own equipment, adapted to your profile. On the other hand, if you plan to ski more casually and occasionally, cross-country ski hire is a much more suitable alternative. By renting your equipment, you will have access to quality equipment throughout your stay, checked by your local professional who often has many years of experience in ski maintenance and ski hire. In short, there is no need to overload yourself with equipment that you can pick up as soon as you arrive at the foot of the resort.
