Ski and Snowboard Hire in Avoriaz

There’s a huge choice of ski hire shops throughout Avoriaz; so many in fact that it seems you're never more than a few steps away from one! The Avoriaz ski and snowboard hire shops are run by a number of companies with the two big French rental brands, Skiset and Intersport dominating. This isn’t a bad thing as the quality of their skis, boots and boards is generally high and the service you can expect in their shops is very customer focused.

Unless you require very specialist equipment, we’d always recommend renting ski equipment from the shop nearest to your accommodation. This makes life much easier when you arrive in resort and when you leave – especially with children. To help you, you’ll find handy maps below showing the locations of the Skiset and Intersport rental shops in relation to the various accommodation in Avoriaz.
