Fancy an alternative to buying your winter sports equipment? Well Borentra may have the answer…
Borentra is a brand new service that allows winter sport enthusiasts to borrow, rent and trade their skiing and snowboard equipment with other snow lovers who live nearby – Hence the name!
The initiative is fuelled by people with the same interests sharing their gear to avoid the costly process of buying new equipment when the winter season arises. Using the website www.borentra.com, individuals can sign up to the service through their Facebook account and immediately begin trading and sharing.
Snowed In had the pleasure of speaking to Jaime Bueza, one of the co-founders of Borentra to find out more about the handy new service he and business partner Jef King are offering to skiers and snowboarders to make our activity that little bit easier…
“Borentra’s vision is to make everyone’s lives easier. We aim to lower barriers to try new experiences, but also help people repeat experiences they have enjoyed. Why buy a pair of skis or a snowboard when you can rent them from a friend or someone nearby?”
“The site has been updated so it’s incredibly easy for people to borrow, rent and trade whatever gear they want. Some people barely ever use their skiing or snowboarding equipment, so they may as well make some money off it if it’s just sitting there for most of the year.” Jamie explained.
The service is practical and makes sense economically, so why not give it a try today!
