Pulk sledges are available in two sizes: standard (1.2m) and expedition (1.6m). Pulk hire charges include a twin bar hauling system and choice of three types of full harness.

Ski hire charges include expedition suitable metal edge nordic or alpine mountain touring skis, Rottafella 3-pin or cable bindings (Nordic) or Fritschi/Silvretta 500 (alpine touring) bindings, Black Diamond expedition telescopic or Swix Mountain touring poles, skins, and waxing kits (if required). Nordic touring skis are available in both waxable or waxless versions.

Prices do not include boots. We do have a limited selection of leather Telemark nordic touring boots available, otherwise we will recommend a suitable source for hire. WE DO NOT HIRE ALPINE SKI TOURING BOOTS.

For those using a rigid sole mountaineering boot, which takes a step in crampon, these boots will fit the Silvretta 500 alpine touring binding fitted to our alpine touring skis. In which case you will not require boot hire. Clients must accept, however, that there will be a decline in performance because mountaineering boots do not offer the same degree of support or control of a dedicated alpine touring boot.

Prices do not include V.A.T. Please add 17.5% V.A.T. for normal hire in the UK and Europe. If hired as part of an all inclusive package to Greenland then the hire charges are not subject to V.A.T. since expeditions to Greenland are exempt from V.A.T.

Other safety equipment is also available to hire upon request: eg
North Face Tents, 406Mhz Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB's), VHF airband radios, GPS, altimeters, red rocket flares, hand held orange hand smoke flares, mini flares, snow shovels, avalanche probes, rifles, satelite telephone and solar rechargers.
