Ski and Snowboard Hire

SkiRoomBanner

With a short snow break lasting just 3 or 4 days, you want to spend as much of your time as possible skiing, not waiting ages to organise your boot / ski / board hire.

At all of our locations, Classic and Lite, we have solutions in place to get you fitted up with the kit you need as quickly and easily as possible. Combine this with very short airport transfers to our locations, plus your lift pass ready and waiting for you on arrival, and you can see why our short ski breaks really do give maximum slopetime with minimum hassle!

Please see the relevant tab below for specific details of ski hire options and prices at the accommodation you’re interested in. All ski hire costs are payable locally, in resort, in Euro cash or by card. You don’t need to pre-book ski hire – it can be arranged on arrival at all locations.

If you want to know more about ski hire options, or any other aspect of our holidays, don’t hesitate to drop us a line or call us on 0845 557 5983 with any questions.

Aravis Lodge / Chalet

Aravis Lodge – Onsite Ski Hire

For those staying on our Classic package at the Aravis Lodge and Chalet Aravis in La Clusaz / Le Grand Bornand, we have a large, permanent ski hire suite on site. You can arrive, grab a cup of tea, glass of wine or a beer and head down to our ski room at your leisure. Our trained and professional team will find the right equipment for you at the most competitive rates around.

Ski hire is available throughout arrival day and into the evening. Our main ski-tech is also our bartender, and is on duty until 0100, so even guests coming in on late evening flights can get fitted with everything they need that night and be ready to ski first thing the next morning.

We have a comprehensive, well maintained range of skis, boards, boots, poles and helmets available for all abilities. There is something to suit everyone – from absolute beginners to advanced skiers and snowboarders. The flexibility of ski hire onsite allows you to change, swap or upgrade your gear if desired throughout your holiday, so there is no issue with hiring skis then swapping to a board for a couple of days.

If you have your own boots then hire of skis and poles only is 70% of the prices outlined below.

Chalet Caroline

Chalet Caroline Ski Hire

For guests staying at Chalet Caroline on our short breaks and ski weekends in Samoens and the Grand Massif, we have a partnership arrangement for ski hire with a conveniently located local shop, Roland Gay, who give our guests a 15% discount from their standard prices.

This shop is located at the top of the first telecabine in Samoens 1600. Ski fitting is done on the morning of your first ski day; however the lift to access the shop opens before all the other lifts in the area, around 0830, meaning you can get fitted up and be ready to hit the slopes when the rest of the area opens at 0900.

Roland Gay provide complementary heated ski lockers alongside their kit hire, so you can leave your skis and boots at Samoens 1600 and head up / down the first / last lift of the day in normal footwear. No need to carry skis around, and much less walking about in ski boots!

Prices are from the 2014 – 2015 season, prices for 2015 – 2016 TBC in autumn 2015:

Pointe Percée

Hotel Pointe Percée Ski Hire

For guests staying on the Ski Weekender Lite package at hotel Pointe Percée, we have a partnership arrangement for ski hire with a conveniently located local shop, Paret Sports, who give our guests a 10% discount from their standard prices.

This shop is right by the bottom of the ski lifts in le Grand Bornand – 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. The shop provides free ski lockers alongside hire from them, which allows guests to keep their skis and boots by the lifts and minimises the amount they have to carry skis around or walk about in ski boots.

Paret Sports is open until 1830 each evening, so if you arrive on an afternoon flight before around 1630 you’ll be able to get your hire sorted out on your arrival day. If you arrive on a later flight, they open the next morning just after 0800, well before the lifts start running at 0900, so you can still get fitted up without missing any ski time.

Because our breaks work with Monday and Thursday start days, you’re avoiding having to get skis fitted on busy weekend days; the shop will be less busy, and you’ll be out and speeding down the pistses in no time!
