Equipment Hire – The Wasteland Wayprefitdelivery_logo

We all know picking up our hire gear in resort post a 15 hour coach journey is always a slightly stressful situation.  We also understand that for beginners in particular getting yourself kitted out and ready for the slopes can be incredibly expensive.  However this really needn’t be the case for either.

We want two things, to open up snow sports to the masses and for our clients to have the best. This is why the Wasteland Pre Fit Service will give your trippers a HUGE advantage over everyone else.  It’s a simple, professionally delivered service that transforms and enhances our clients’ holiday, and the most important thing to remember…there is NO extra charge for this exclusive service!

Here’s how it works:
  • Wasteland and Pre Fit bring their ‘Retail Village’ to a location of your choice (we suggest university campus rather than your front room). There’ll also be a stash of products from our other suppliers for you to get your hands on! (think Planks, Dakine, Entirety, Bloc, Surfanic and Superfeet – to name a few) The Pre Fit pop up’s create a great buzz on campus! Its a FREE promotional event for your trip, and a really good opportunity to sell more places!
  • Pre-Fit brings their supply of demo skis, boards & boots, and work closely with the resort suppliers to match their equipment year on year
  • For beginners or those that don’t have all their own clothing, Pre Fit will also be offering clothing hire packages.  Designed to make getting on the hill as cheap as possible.  Trippers will also be able to try the clothing for size at the pop up!
  • All your trippers will get to try on their ski/board equipment in the UK, the service provided here is dedicated to YOUR group. It’s managed by trained professionals who can offer clear and helpful advice – great for first-timers!
  • Pre-Fit manage and send all of your details to the hire shop in resort.  For those that order clothing, helmets or camera packages as well, these will be sent to their house a week or so before departures.
  • Your ski/board equipment will be ready and waiting for you in resort. Whilst everyone else is queuing up, hoping to get a pair of matching boots, you can just waltz through and collect your package, no elbowing past everyone else to try and get the best and definitely not missing out on any mountain or lesson time!
  • Pre Fit will also provide a selection of clothing and other equipment rental packages – see below for more details.
