Ski Hire in Alpe d'Huez
There are 15+ ski hire shops in Alpe d'Huez. Nearly all the outlets are with the good value options such as Ski Republic, Skimium, Twinner, Sport 2000, Precision Ski and Intersport but there are a few smaller independent stores such as Sarenne Sports, Rocky Sports and Cyril's Sports (under the Skimium banner and located in the Les Bergers area).
If you are staying in a catered chalet the staff may drive you to and from your chosen ski hire shop at the beginning and end of your holiday so that you can pick up and drop off your equipment. If there is no driver service available there is always the resort free bus service and also the pedestrian lift.

For the best prices (up to 45% discount from the walk-in price) and a wide range of equipment please use our online ski hire booking service. For this we have teamed up with SKISET who have the largest network of ski hire outlets across the Alps. Select your accommodation from the drop down list (see map below) to show where you are staying in relation to their stores.
The online booking process is as easy as pie. There is no need to enter your shoe size, weight or height. Simply choose your 1st ski day (usually the day after you arrive in resort), the number of days you wish to hire for and what category of equipment you wish to book. On booking you will receive an email receipt for your booking with an attached voucher. Please print this voucher and present at any SKISET store in your resort.
For each quality category there are many different makes and models of skis and snowboards to choose from. The shop staff in resort will help you select the best equipment from the category you booked to match your ability, preferred ski terrain (piste, park or off-piste) and the prevailing ski/snowboarding conditions.
