Our family (2 adults and a 10 year old daughter) recently rented from Browns and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Next time, we won't book through a travel agent but will contact Browns direct. Highly recommended !

Back to skiing after a long break and children wanting to snowboard. Very helpful, knowledgeable and patient. They went out of their way to ensure everything fitted perfectly. Thanks for making it so easy.
