One of the things we get asked a lot about is if we offer storage and what each storage option represents.We know what a hassle it is to carry your ski/snowboard equipment from your hotel to the lifts, that’s why we, at Ski & Board Traventuria, offer the option to keep all of your equipment in our rental shop, which is 50 meters away from the base gondola lift station. Taking advantage of our storage options not only saves you time and energy, but also gives you the ability to use one of our boot dryers, so you have perfectly dry boots in the morning. Our storage space is available for booking to every visitor of the resort, regardless if you are renting anything else from us. So you can book only storage to keep your personal equipment is our shop, without booking lift passes, transport and so on.

Our rental shop works until 21:30 to accommodate clients who wish to go night skiing. This means that you can go night skiing and still leave your equipment in our shop overnight.
Below we’ve put together a description of the various options you can take advantage of while booking your next ski trip to Borovets. During the booking procedure you will be asked to select one of the following:
Own Equipment (Own Storage) and Own storage of hired equipment – These two options are for clients, who do not want to use our storage space. The “Own Equipment” option is for clients carrying their own skis, boots, etc., while “Own storage of hired equipment” is for clients, who have booked equipment with us, but wish to keep it in their hotel. In both cases you will have to carry your equipment back to your hotel and store it there.
Storage of hired equipment at the ski shop (No boot drying) – This is our most basic storage option. After skiing, you’ll leave your equipment in our rental shop, where it will be waiting for you in the morning. While you’re on the slopes, your normal shoes will be stored in the shop, so that you don’t have to carry them with you on the pistes. This option doesn’t allow you to leave you helmet overnight in the shop. This option doesn’t include helmet storage. If you don’t want to carry your helmet to your hotel, you will need to book an option with a locker.
Storage of hired equipment at the ski shop (With boot drying) – This option is the same as the previous, however with one big plus. Your boots will have a spot on one of our professional grade boot dryers. Even the most expensive top-class boots get wet in various conditions and adding this feature to your storage package is recommended, as you will have dry boots every morning. This option is especially good for snowboards, as snowboard boots often end up a little moist at the end of a full day on the slopes. Helmet storage not included.
How does it work? Each rack has a set number of spots and openings for warm air, which flows directly into the boot. The warm air drys and disinfects the boots without damaging them and leaves you with comfortable, dry boots every day. The boot dryers run overnight, so if you go night skiing until 9PM, they will be dry in the morning.
Storage at the shop, boot drying and day-time personal locker – This option includes all of the above mentioned extras, plus a small locker which you can use. These lockers are 36cm x 36cm x 36cm and can fit 3 helmets. This is a great option, as you can leave stuff you don’t need on the slopes, but need directly after skiing. For example, a backpack with clean socks and pants, so that you don”t have to go to your hotel before walking around the resort. You can also leave your helmets in it over night, so you don’t have to take them back to your hotel.
Storage at the shop – Big Locker – In addition to our small day-time lockers, we also have big lockers which are 40cm x 40cm x 185cm which can be booked for your entire stay. These lockers are great for couples, as they can fit two pairs of adult skis (up to 178cm long) and one pair of children skis. They also have rafts for your ski boots and helmets. If your skis are too long to fit in the locker, they will be stored on our rafts at no extra cost. All lockers are priced per locker, not per person. So when booking a locker for more than one person, select this option for only one of your party and have the other select an “own storage” option.
