Erwin Stricker is a local to Merano and opened the first equipment hire shop. You can now hire just about everything from carving or rocker skis, snowshoes, sleds, cross-country skiing and racing sleds and more. You can also book online before you go.

There are three shops dotted around the resort:

1 – Meran 2000 Cable Car Valley Station: ski services and rentals

Tel – +39 473 491 369

2 – Piffing: Sled Rentals & Shop
Tel – +39 473 279 607

3 – Falzeben: Sled Rentals, Ski Service and Rentals

Tel – +39 473 279 390

All of the shops are open 8.30am – 5pm daily.

They also have a ski store at the mountain cable station of Merano 2000 where you can store your skis and equipment overnight, much better than carrying them up and down to your accommodation, particularly if you are staying in Merano.
