Welcome to high-performance skis! As a ski renter, you have likely not been exposed to the technological advantages of high-performance skis and thus, the skis you have been renting are probably holding you back. At around $8 per day upgrade, our performance fleet provides a cost effective option to get on some great product. Your skiing will improve and you'll have more fun!
We encourage you to try a few different skis until you find your perfect match. These are the skis that other stores rent as Demos and represent the best value ski rentals at Mt Hotham.
This year we have our largest range ever including all mountain and freeride skis, women’s specific skis and some high-performance kids skis.
Volkl Kanjo (2019 model)
161, 168, 175 & 182cm
Volkl have used the latest and greatest technology to produce possibly the best all round all mountain ski ever for intermediates and above, the Kanjo. Tip and tail rocker, laminated timber, Titanal reinforcing lateral band. On and off piste, this lightweight verstile ski will please everyone
Rossignol Experience 80
144, 152, 160, 168, 176 & 184cm
Similar construction but 4mm narrower than the Experience 84. This will make the ski feel quicker edge to edge on the groomers but not as much floatation in the soft snow. Tip & tail rocker makes turning a breeze and the honeycomb tip allows for rapid transition between turns and reduces vibration. Very versatile allowing you to potter with the kids then cut a few fast laps when you get a chance. Great skis for adding confidence without burning your legs allowing for more skiing miles in a day.
Rossignol Temptation 84
146 & 154cm
All the great technology of the Experience 84 but slightly lighter for a softer flex. Mounted slightly forward to account for women's lower centre of gravity, this elegant ski will delight on and off the piste. Tip and tail rocker makes turning a breeze.
Rossignol Temptation 80
144, 152, 160 &168cm
Very similar to the Experience 80 with a stylish feminine cosmetic. Autoturn Rocker in the tip & tail allows for easy turning whilst camber underfoot ensures confident edge hold. Very versatile but not too serious, a great tool for those looking for fuun over the hill and a great ski for overcoming that dreaded "intermediate hump".
Fischer Hybrid 8.5 Ti
161, 168 & 175cm
This is a serious ski for advanced and expert skiers. The Fischer Hybrid is wide enough to have some soft- snow versatility & narrow enough to have good edge grip on hard snow. The Hybrid system offers rocker when you want it or full camber when you don't. The Hybrid models are the world's only skis with an on/off switch for rocker. You know you want to give them a go!
148, 158, 168 & 178cm
Twin tip park ski with a full laminated wood core making it versatile enough to ride the whole mountain.
Rossignol Hero Multi-Event - Jnr/Radical RSX Jnr
110, 120, 130, 140 & 150cm
Awesome introductory junior race ski designed for aspiring young athletes to develop the basics to take them to the next level.
