ABOUT RENTAL GEAR
All the gear at the Salomon & Atomic Station is fully maintained.
In skiing and snowboarding, gear safety far outweighs experience and technique. Rental items at the Salomon & Atomic Station have all been maintained by qualified and skilled staff before you rent them.
We help to answer your questions and concerns, such as how to choose gear or what to be careful of out on the snow.
When choosing gear, you need to consider the size of the ski/snowboard and boots, where you’ll be skiing or boarding, and what kind of performance you want. If you’re wondering which gear to get or have any questions or concerns such as how to attach your skis or snowboard and what to be careful of out on the slopes, don’t hesitate to ask the staff.
For a safe and fun experience out on the slopes.
All the rental gear at the Salomon & Atomic Station, including skis and snowboards, is regularly inspected and maintained. Although we always ask our customers about their needs and select properly sized gear for everyone, please contact us if you experience any of the following during use.
・Find any crack(s) / scratches in gear during use
・Feel that the bindings are too tight or loose
・Find that your gear is of the wrong size
・Forget how to put on your gear
Since the bottom edges (framing the back of the skis/snowboard) are sharpened, be sure to wear gloves when carrying them. When standing your skis or board while taking a break, be sure to use the dedicated ski stand to prevent them from falling over and injuring someone. Also, to prevent scratching skis and boards, do not stand them in the snow.
Can I really visit empty-handed?
Yes. We provide a wide range of gear from skies/snowboards to skiwear and boots that satisfy your needs. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know you can even rent the latest models! And don’t forget that accessories such as goggles and ski hats are available, too.
What should I do if I find that my boots don’t fit properly?
If you find that your boots are the wrong size, don’t be afraid to tell us. We’ll prepare the right size for you, and recommend carefully checking the size before renting. Our shop has a wide variety of sizes and types, and if it turns out there is no item that fits you, no cancellation fee will be charged.
How do I choose ski equipment?
When it comes to selecting skis, choose ones slightly shorter than your height. As a rough standard, your height minus around 10cm would be the right length. For poles, your height minus 50 to 60cm would be ideal.Out of all the ski equipment, boot size is the most important. As a rough standard, your normal shoe size plus 0.5 to 1.0cm is likely to be the right size, but we recommend you choose the actual size of your foot. Salomon’s high-quality boots fit your feet more flexibly than ordinary ones. People often wear two layers of socks, but this will backfire, because this will make it difficult to apply force to the skis and prevent the bindings (the parts that connect boots to skis) from functioning correctly, which is dangerous. Also, remember that short socks can cause pain where the tops of the socks meet your leg when you fasten the boots.
How do I choose snowboard equipment?
As for a snowboard, your height minus 10 to 20cm would be the proper length. The right size, though, differs depending on the characteristics of the board, so please tell us your snowboarding skills when choosing a board. As for boots, select the size same as or around 0.5cm bigger than your shoe size.
How do I choose junior ski equipment?
For skis, choose ones slightly shorter than your child’s height. As a rough standard, the child’s height minus 10 to 15cm would be the right length. But since a ski is quite heavy, the weight of children around 100cm tall needs to be considered as well as their height when choosing ski length. What’s more, the proper length differs depending on your child’s skiing skill and the kind of skis (for example, general skis or racing skis). As for poles, the child’s height minus 25 to 45cm would be the right size.
See the following guide for standard lengths.
– Child’s height is around 90cm: choose skis 25cm shorter
– Child’s height is around 100cm: choose skis 30cm shorter
– Child’s height is around 110cm: choose skis 35cm shorter
– Child’s height is 120 – 130cm choose skis 40cm shorter
– Child’s height is around 140cm or more: choose skis 45cm shorter.
Like skis, the proper length for poles differs depending on your child’s skiing skills. But of all ski equipment, boot size is the most important. As a rough standard, your child’s normal shoe size plus 0.5 to 1.0cm would likely be ideal, but we recommend choosing the ones of the actual size of child’s foot. Salomon’s high-quality boots fit their feet more flexibly than ordinary ones. People often wear two layers of socks, but this will backfire, because doing so will make it difficult to apply force to the skis and prevent the bindings (the parts that connect boots to skis) from functioning, which is dangerous. Also, remember that short socks can cause pain where the tops of the socks meet your child’s legs when they fasten their boots. If you have any questions about the size, please do not hesitate to ask the staff at the rental station.
