Ski Hire in Lech

I've been looking at ski hire in Lech - Hervis (based in St Anton) say they deliver skis for free to your accommodation. Has anyone used this service and if so did it work?

Or is it better to pay a bit extra and rent the gear from Lech itself?

Thanks!

Hannah

Rent locally. If you need to change skis or have them waxed/edged during your stay it'd be much easier.

i would be dubious about having skis delivered to your door. when renting skis it is imperative to measure your knee width and also know your body weight. that is so the safety bindings can be set at the correct release pressure and also the skis have to be adjusted to fit the specific boot that you are using.

there is absolutely no problem getting skis in lech itself so why would you rent in st anton?

maybe the hervis comment refers to a person in st anton, going to their rental place and then the skis will be delivered to your hotel rather than you having to carry them?

Thanks for your input.

The reason I was looking at Hervis is because it will cost me about £300 less than what I was being quoted by Strolz, Sport 2000 and Skibex etc.

Perhaps you are right about going to the rental place in St Anton and then them delivering them to the hotel as I was dubious about the measuring side of things... I need to look in to that more.

What is that supposed to mean? I'm asking for advice, not abuse
