Easy online ski hire booking for La Thuile

Bethod Sport have a shop selling clothes and ski equipment and they also have a rental outlet which they claim is the biggest and best stocked store in the entire Aosta Valley. Their tuning workshop is equipped with the latest "WINTERSTEIGER DISCOVERY S" ski tuning machine. With its Ceramic disc and self-adjusting stone it achieves a higher quality of fine tuning for every ski and snowboard giving you the best on-slope experience.

They also have an easy ski storage facility at the base of the main lifts. Clients can rent lockers that are warm and dry where they can store their skis and boots overnight. Finish skiing at the end of the day at the base of the lifts in La Thuile and simply leave your equipment right there - ready for the next day. There is no need to be carrying it around resort, or lug it backwards and forwards from your hotel.

If you are staying at one of the hotels in La Thuile it is highly likely that they will offer an in-resort shuttle service for their guests. It is therefore a simple exercise to visit the ski hire shop of your choice to pick up equipment on your arrival.
