Ski Hire in Les Arcs (2000)

Ski hire - Arc 2000 - the flagship Skiset store on the Front de Neige

There are several different ski hire shops in Arc 2000 all with the good value options of the larger chain stores with Precision Ski, Intersport, Sport 2000 and SKISET.

Easy online ski hire booking for Arc 2000

Arc 2000 is a relatively small resort and pedestrian friendly so getting around from one side to the other is not too arduous - although please note that at 2,000m altitude the air is a little thin. We recommend the resort flagship store, the Front de Neige Skiset store (see photo). This is situated opposite the start of the Lanchettes Chairlift in the centre of Arc 2000 and offers perfect ski in ski out convenience.

Ski or snowboard rental in Arc 2000 - the options:

1. 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. Book with Rental Republic and benefit from a special discount. Quote our promo code: ALPINEANSWERS19

Why we recommend SKISET

Our prices compared with other ski holiday companies

The online booking process is as easy as pie. There is no need to enter 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 for your booking with an attached voucher. Please print this voucher and present at any SKISET store in your resort.

For each quality 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 from the category you booked to match your ability, preferred ski terrain (piste, park or off-piste) and the prevailing ski/snowboarding conditions.

Your ski hire voucher can be used at the following SKISET stores (see map below):

  • Skiset Front de Neige: The flagship store on the snow front opposite the Lanchettes chairlift - Place Olympique.
  • Skiset Aiguille Rouge: Located in the L'Aiguille Rouge building in the commercial centre of Arc 2000, overlooking the ice rink.
  • Skiset Arolles: Located at the Residence Chalet des Neiges in the lower section of the resort.

Extended ski hire for 7 or more days

If you wish to hire for 7 or more days (perhaps you are self-driving or taking the overnight Eurostar service) then please visit the SKISET website. Their online booking system will accept bookings of 7 days or more. If you are booking in a French resort the price for 7 days hire is the same as 6 days so you can enjoy 7 days hire for the price of 6. Use this link to benefit from special rates for Alpine Answers clients: Hire periods of 7 or more days.

SKISET 'Premium' category of rental equipment

The 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 for those that have to have the best no matter the extra cost. Brands featured in this category include: Lacroix, Black Crows, Kastle, Exonde and Blizzard.
