Ski Hire in Courchevel Le Praz
There are a few different ski hire shops in Courchevel Le Praz (1300) ranging from the large franchise chains of SKISET (Gormier Sports) through to smaller independent stores such as Olympic Sports and Whitestorm. There are also ski hire equipment delivery options in Courchevel Le Praz whereby your chosen ski or snowboard kit is delivered (and picked up at the end of the week) directly to your chalet or hotel. A delivery/pick up service will be a more expensive option but might be a more practical option for some.
The village of Le Praz is relatively small by ski resort standards so no matter where you are staying you should be able to walk to and from the ski hire outlet of your choice. However, there are delivery options available and Whitestorm also have a client minibus and driver option which will pick you up from your accommodation.
