Ski Hire in Les Gets
There are half a dozen different ski hire shops in Les Gets ranging from good value options with chain outlets such as Ski Republic, Skimium, Sport 2000, Twinner and Intersport, through to smaller independent stores such as Michaud Sports. Most of the ski hire stores in Les Gets are located next door to each other on the 'Front de Neige' which is found at the bottom of the Chavannes pistes - the Michaud Sports 2 shop is here. Michaud Sports 1 is the larger shop and this is found in the heart of Les Gets on the Rue du Centre.
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 there is always the resort free bus service which will get you around Les Gets easily enough.
Ski or snowboard rental in Les Gets - the options:
1. Doorstep Skis
Doorstep Skis are based in Morzine but offer a highly regarded ski delivery and pick up service. At a pre-arranged time suitable to you (between 8am and 9pm) they arrive at your chalet where one of their mobile ski technicians will spend the time to make sure you get the perfect equipment with the perfect fit. There is no waiting in line at the ski hire shop and the fitting can be done in the comfort of your own chalet. Clients of Alpine Answers will receive a 20% to 30% on-line discount reduced from the normal prices.
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. Select your accommodation from the drop down list (see map below) to show where you are staying in relation to their stores.
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):
- Michaud Sports 1: Located on the main shopping street, Rue du Centre, in the centre of Les Gets.
- Michaud Sports 2: Located on the Route du Front de Neige which runs along the foot of the home pistes. This shop is opposite the Chavannes Express chairlift and the Chavannes gondola station.
You can store your skis and ski boots overnight at Michaud Sports which means you can get around the resort to and from the lifts in comfortable shoes or walking boots without having to carry your equipment.
Extended ski hire for 7 or more daysIf you wish to hire for 7 or more days 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).
