Ski Hire in Tignes (Les Brevieres)
There are a few different ski hire shops in Tignes Les Brevieres ranging from good value options with the likes of Intersport (near the main lift station), Twinner and Ski Republic (just off the main street) through to smaller independent stores and also Tignes Spirit and Whitestorm who run a delivery and pick up service as well as good prices.
Les Brevieres is a very small village so getting around on foot is no trouble at all - therein lies some of its considerable charm. No matter where you are staying it should not be difficult to reach any of the ski hire outlets you may wish to use.

2. Tignes Spirit
Tignes Spirit operate in both Tignes and Val d'Isere and offer a high quality equipment delivery/pick up service to your accommodation. They have one base in Tignes Le Lavachet which they work out of but deliver the equipment to all of the Tignes resorts from there. If anybody needs to change any of their equipment in the week they drive to their chalet and do it at the chalet. Or, if they are on the piste we will meet them there and do it on the piste. If the guests are staying in Tignes they often pick the guests up and bring them down to the shop then drop them back off with their friends or family.
Tignes Spirit is especially good for snowboard rental which is a higher level than other shops. They also have an extremely large range of powder and ski touring equipment (for both skiing and snowboarding). We don't believe that their range of kit for off-piste terrain is matched by any other shop in Tignes or Val d'Isere. Book on-line for a 30% discount and quote our promo code: Alpine Answers for best price.
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):
- Skiset Les Brevieres: Located in the centre of the resort.
- Skiset Santa Terra: In the new development by the lake.
Extended ski hire for 7 or more daysIf 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 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 for those that have to have the best no matter the extra cost.
