Ski Hire in La Tania
Review of best ski hire in La Tania
There are approximately 6 different ski hire shops in La Tania. Either the large franchise outlets of Intersport, Twinner, Sport 2000 or the British market focused ski delivery and mobile fitting service outlets (see below). These companies deliver your chosen ski or snowboard kit directly to your chalet (and pick it up again at the end of your week). A delivery/pick up service will be a more expensive option but might be a more practical option for some.
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 La Tania is a small enough resort that getting around on foot is perfectly possible.
Ski hire in La Tania - the best options:
1. White Storm
White Storm offer an equipment delivery/pick up service. However, they also offer a driver service in one of their chauffeured resort vehicles if you would rather go to their shop in La Tania and choose your ski hire rental kit there. Established in 1998 they have a strong presence in the Three Valleys area. Quote our promo code: ALPINEANSWERS as a promo code for a 20%-45% discount. Check out a short video on the White Storm mobile ski delivery service.
Freeride in La Tania offer a similar equipment delivery/pick up service. Established in 2001 they have a strong presence in the Tarentaise Valley and are linked for their product offering with the Precision Ski hire shops in the area.
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.
The online booking process is very easy with no need for 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 with pdf voucher which you print and take to any SKISET shop in resort.
For each 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 to match your ability, preferred ski terrain (piste, park or off-piste) and the prevailing snow conditions.
Your ski hire voucher can be used at the following SKISET stores (see map below):
- Ski Wave: Of the two Skiset shops this is the one we particularly recommend. It is located in the heart of the resort on the snow front at the foot of the nursery slopes.
- Alpiski: Also located in the centre of La Tania and on the snow front.
Extended ski hire for 7 or more daysIf you wish to hire for 7 or more days then please visit the SKISET website. Their online booking system will accept bookings of 7 days or more. Use this link to benefit from special rates for Alpine Answers clients: Hire periods of 7 or more days.
SKISET 'Premium' category of rental equipmentThe top category of rental equipment available through any holiday company is the 'Excellence' category (which we price below). However, if you book directly through the SKISET website there is a more expensive 'Premium' category available in the larger resorts for those that have to have the best no matter the extra cost.
