... and I paid €31 for hire of economy boots, skis and poles. It does work out quite expensive, but it's certainly well worth it, just make sure you get there early as it does get very busy!
If you stay in Innsbruck it's certainly a good idea to rent a car as it gives you much more freedom. Innsbruck is extremely close to the Italian and German borders, so there's the opportunity to go to places like Munich with ease. It is also a great idea to drive into ...
