Ski Hire in La Plagne (Aime)
There are several different ski hire shops in Aime La Plagne with good value options with the likes of Ski Republic, Intersport and Skiset who we are affiliated with.
The chances are if you are staying in this resort that you have booked accommodation at one of the two Club Med hotels. They do have their own separate ski hire shops located within their hotels and you can book in advance of your arrival by adding the equipment you want to your booking. However, although using one of Club Med's own stores is the most practical option, it is not the cheapest. The prices we can offer at either of the SKISET stores below will give you considerable savings. Either of the stores are an easy two or three minutes walk from the Club Med La Plagne 2100. However, the walk from the lower Club Med Aime hotel up to the SKISET shop at Les Hauts Bois is more like a 10 minute walk.
If you are staying at the Club Med Aime hotel you might therefore prefer to use the ski hire services of Rental Republic (see link below) who offer a delivery and pick up of equipment direct to the Club Med Aime hotel at the beginning and end of your stay. Their prices will be a bit higher than SKISET's but a lot cheaper than Club Med's own ski hire rates.

2. Rental Republic
Rental Republic offer an excellent delivery and pick up service. Based at Landry within the Tarentaise Valley this English owned and managed ski hire company will deliver equipment to your accommodation, fit it there, and then pick up hired kit at the end of your stay. They also offer full support during your holiday and are only a text message away (within the hour response time) so that changes of equipment can be made as required.
With a fleet of 6 especially adapted Ford Transit Custom vans based at their large depot near Bourg St Maurice it is a short drive to resorts such as Val d’Isere, Tignes, La Rosiere, Les Arcs and La Plagne.
With a text message sent to you 24 hours before you arrive your technician will arrange a time suitable to you for delivery/fitting. There is then a courtesy text when they are 20 minutes away so you can be ready for their arrival. All their mobile technicians come prepared with a wide selection of spare ski boots to ensure you get equipment that is right for you.
For the quality of service offered their prices are competitive. They may not be the cheapest ski hire option out there but for those wanting the hassle taken out of picking up and returning rental equipment they do offer a neat and efficient solution.
