Many places to hire skis and ski boots but not so many , if at all, hirinmg ski clothing.

In Italy we tend not to do hire of clothing be it for weddings or for Winter sports.

Some good shops however to buy ski clothingin Ortisei.

Thanks Eco – You’re correct. All ski equipment, but not clothing!

It is possible to hire jackets and boots from the alpine guides on Mount Etna.

Yes that is also true but I suppose this is because Etna is visited by m,any people just on a day trip and not always to ski.

In ski resorts mainly people go there knowing that they want to ski and so have a minimum of gear at least clothing items.
