Ski rental at Abondance – Portes du Soleil

Do you not have your own ski equipment or do you not feel like dragging the entire family’s ski equipment all the way to France? In the vicinity of your apartment there are several shops which offer the rental of skis, snowboards, shoes and other necessities for winter sports.

Wide choice of ski equipment

Every village in Portes du Soleil has shops that offer loads of different equipment and experienced staff who would love to help you make your choice. They give advice based on their knowledge and experience of the regional slopes. You can rent only skis, boots, a ski suit, a ski helmet or ski goggles, or all of the above. Its up to you and everything is possible. The latest models of the major brands are almost always in stock. The shops often work with 3 or 4 price ranges, so that there is always something for everyone. The shops (Sport 2000, Planet’Gliss en Ski Republic Rappes Sports) differ in price, but so does the location and the size of every place. Smaller villages often offer the material at a cheaper price than other larger (and more popular) places. The difference in price can be quite significant.

Reserve ski equipment online

More and more winter sports enthusiasts rent their skis or snowboard online. Renting your equipment online has several advantages. First op all, upon arrival you only have to pick up the ski/snowboard equipment, you won’t have any waiting times seen as the material is ready for you when you arrive so that you can go straight onto the slopes

The ski rental shops themselves also strongly prefer online reservations. They reward these reservations with a 15% to 40% discount. A family with two children can rent four complete sets for € 300 for 6 days during the high season.

Advantages of booking online

  • Cheap rental and discounts
  • Equipment is ready upon arrival
  • In case of problems, the store is near by
  • No need to drag around your equipment

Family discount

Ski rental companies often have attractive offers for families with children. If one or two parents rent skis, the equipment for their children can be free or at a high discount. The age limits of the children can also differ, sometimes it is 8 years but there are also cases where the limit is 10 or 12 years. It is also worth paying close attention to that.

Payment terms

There are also differences in the payment terms. In most cases you are asked to pay 100% immediately, in other cases this is not necessary but if you do pay fully upfront you are rewarded with a 10% discount. Cancelling your rental of the ski equipment is not free of charge sadly, you can however take out cancellation insurance for this.
