I haven't rented for a while, but there are always a bunch of stores in every town. If there's nothing next to your accommodation, there'll be an Intersport or something similar near whichever chairlift or gondola you use.

I just got back from Zell. It's nice out there at the moment. Not too busy. Be sure to visit the nearby glacier (Kitzsteinhorn) for a day. Lots of runs up there, well above the tree line and 3-4 ungroomed and unpatrolled routes - essentially marked off-piste. Great if the snow is good.
