Quick, easy walk in ski hire with good quality equipment. The ultimate staff were friendly and quickly got our equipment together. Other ski hire shops in the village were not doing walk ins, but we were in and out within 20 minutes. Cheers Guys.

Having rented for many years these guys are the best! Very friendly even when at their busiest. Expert knowledge and advise. Superb drop off service even for mid rental exchanges.

The staff here were super friendly and very helpful. The gear seemed very new and was very comfortable. Hire prices we thought were reasonable as well. If you stay at the Moose hotel they give a booklet that gives you 10% of hire gear too...More

Great staff at Ultimate Sports. Notably Nicola! Fantastic young lady, who is always pleasant and knowledgable. I have rented bikes from this shop a few times, and this season they're running Scott bikes. Great choice! Good products, decent value. I recommend shopping and renting here.

Laid back and quick in and out. The equipment was in excellent condition and riding around Banff was super easy. Friendly staff and fair price. $12 hour for excellent bikes. Worked well for us rather than our hotels higher prices;-)
