Ski Hire in Chamonix (Les Houches)

Ski hire Les Houches - Serge Cachat Sports

There are several different ski hire shops in Les Houches ranging from good value options with the likes of Ski Republic, Skimium and Intersport, through to smaller independent stores such as Serge Cachat Sports. back in the 1970's Serge was a famous extreme skier. These days he runs his ski hire shop which is located next to the Bellevue cable-car station. At the other main lift station in Les Houches, the Prarion gondola, there is the Battendier Sports rental store. The two lift stations are approximately 1km apart so depending on where you are staying one shop may have the better location over the other.

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 bus.
