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.

Intersport is the way to go for renting stuff Although some of the people who work there aren't so smart (my strap was broken and i just needed a new screw,it took him 30 min to find a screw and screwdriver..). But other than that, great shop
