Pre-book ski hire

Skis, board and boots are another vital part to a fantastic ski holiday. Pre-booking your ski equipment makes life much easier once you get to resort. By booking your ski equipment before you get to resort you can save time and money. We've sourced the best suppliers and negotiated some great prices for ski hire in each resort. Pre-book directly with us and you could save up to 25% on the price you would pay in resort.

Through us you can pre-book skis, boots and snowboards for all abilities, from complete beginner to the most advanced level of skier or rider. And we haven't forgotten our young skiers, with ski equipment specifically designed to help them progress. Our range includes skis for tiny tots as young as 2 years, through to children up to 12 year olds. 

Quality kit

Our suppliers have been chosen for their expertise and friendliness, and to ensure you get the very best quality equipment in resort. Pre-booking through us will assure a good quality of ski and shop service. 

Please be aware of suppliers that offer especially cheap rates – it usually means poor service and equipment.

Helmets

Helmets have featured heavily in the media over the past 12 months, with high profile accidents raising awareness about the benefits of wearing one. It's not only a safety aspect but helmets are becoming increasingly fashionable on the slopes - we can pre-book helmets for you too.

Fitting

Your pre-booked skis and snowboards will be fitted to you on the arrival day of your holiday or first thing Monday morning for any late arrivals. In this instance minimal ski time (if any) will be lost.

We selected suppliers so you can enjoy easy collection, with well-located hire shops and an efficient service guaranteed.

What's more, in selected Meribel, Morzine and Val d'Isere chalets, we can arrange in-chalet fitting for the ultimate in convenience.
