Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Where to buy in Switzerland?

Hi All,

I’m looking for a pair of junior off piste skis for my son and we’re currently near Sion/Sierre in Switzerland.

I normally use Ekosport near Alberville but I won’t be there til next week and given the current conditions it’s ***urgent***

Anyone know of any discount/warehouse type places anywhere close? I’m happy to drive an hour or so along the valley.

Thanks Very Happy

@Pending, google? https://www.google.ch/maps/search/Sion+magasins+de+sports/@46.2170659,7.3310472,13z?hl=en-ch

Ochsner usually pretty OK. Sport fabrik look also interesting.

No local knowledge though.

Do they make off piste skis for kids? Do kids need off piste skis?

What size? There are some Faction CT juniors (95mm) in a 155 in Backside Verbier reduced from 389chf to 195chf. Bindings half price too

Thanks. Need something like Black Crows Junius in 130 or Fischer Prodigy in 135.

But I forgot it’s Easter! Most closed til Tuesday anyhow. Might as well get them online from Ekosport.fr

Be careful, you'll get hammered for customs charges if you have a Swiss address.

It's not too bad. I bought skis from Ekosport in February. Skis were CHF415 inc delivery. I think the 'tax' I had to pay at the post office was CHF36.

What do you mean? With a Swiss address a company should remove the EU VAT (20%) and ship them tax free. Swiss customs should then add 8% Swiss VAT. As long as the sender add the correct documentation you should not get hammered.
