Telemark Ski hire
« on: October 05, 2008, 06:03:53 PM »
Hello,

We were hoping to ski in Japan in February but need to hire TELEMARK ski's and boots.
Does anyone know of any shops that rent out telemark gear?

thanks in advance,
SkiFool

Good move SF - Myoko has some of the very best back country in all of Japan. Will be easy enough to find gear but you could also contact Bill Ross at Myoko Backcountry Ski School who runs courses and rents gear.

Tel: (0255)87-2392

Let him know you were referred on from here.

Good Luck! ~ MG

Thanks for the reply, myokoguy.

I will contact Bill Ross to discuss rental and lessons.
