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 :-)

Buying Skis

 Poster: A snowHead

Hi

New member here!

I am travelling to Luxembourg this weekend and was hoping to buy some ski's in the local Intersport or similar.
Has anyone bought ski's in France/Belgium/Lux apart from in ski resorts
and what are the prices like compared to the UK.

Any advice please Puzzled

Andy1, welcome to snowheads. I don't know about buying skis in Luxembourg but I know it's a duty free zone for fuel, booze and ciggies so that may extend to skis. Buying skis in France is usually cheaper than the UK especially in one of the big depots like Decathalon or HO. Any online guides you can check with?

I was going to start a similar thread so I'll butt in here instead.

Anyone know how much Rossi B2's will cost in France? More precisely, in La Tania just after Christmas. Any shop recommendations there?

And, more importantly: Welcome to snowHeads andy1 snowHead snowHead snowHead

Pete Horn, currently 459 euros (£322) in Snell Sports (Chamonix). Considerably less than most UK prices I believe.

Thanks, Alan. Important supplementary question - does that include bindings?

The current Southampton offer in £399 including bindings.

Pete Horn, both 'ski set' and 'sport2000' have shops in La Tania. If I were you i'd find out their phone number or website address (should be a link somewhere) and check direct with the shop. I have found ski set particularly helpful in the past.

Andy1, sorry just registered and maybe a bit late but... For quick, efficient ski purchasing, and possibly tax free if you are VAT registered, or have an address in Luxembourg, Switzerland, Andorra (Cayman Islands!) to send them, try www.telemark-pyrenees.com, who have a good range of kit, including alpine and whose prices are in line with Au Vieux Campeur, the (usually) cheapest retailer in the Cham valley.

Happy shopping! By the way Pete Horn, I hate B2s, not stiff enough!!

Each to their own. I'm a bit of a lightweight - 64Kg, and not too aggressive a skier, perhaps that's why they suit me.
