Personally I have never hired a snowboard – but whenever I’ve been away in a group, at least one person has hired. I don’t know about your experiences, but from my point of view the norm tends to be pretty poor boards with not much attention given to a more personal setup… But maybe when you’re a complete beginner it doesn’t matter that much?

Anyway, I was suprised to see a snowboard shop in Tignes that had a good selection of boards to hire. As well as hiring boards, the shop, Bazoom, also had some nice gear inside. Well worth a look.

I made a quick list of some of the boards they had outside (sorry, I didn’t note the prices – which were specific to the board):

  • Burton T6
  • Burton Custom
  • Burton Jeremy
  • Burton Dominant
  • Burton Feelgood
  • Rome Agent
  • Rome Anthem
  • Rome Flag
  • Nitro Darkhorse

I was well impressed. Also to note, my friend Ross hired a board from Bazoom and they set him up with a sick little Sapient stick and Burton P1 HD bindings… loads better than the offerings from Super Sport 2000 (or whatever it’s called) just around the corner…
