There are a number of tried and tested places in Chamonix that we would recommend for ski and board hire and your rep will advise you on this. We’ll mention a couple here – there’s Coquoz Sports (Intersport) which is directly below the Val d’Arve apartments, where there is even a door that leads directly from the shop to the Val d’Arve boot room. Then there’s our good friend Philippe at Intersport Nord in the avenue du Bouchet near the MBC club. These shops offer excellent service and also a good discount to Collineige clients.
So how much is this going to cost? To give you an idea of prices for hire of skis/boards and boots for 6 days the 2011/12 prices were:
Juniors 67-85 euros (ski) 94 euros (snowboard)
helmet 13.50 euros
Beginners 120 euros
Advanced 177 euros
Adult helmet 21.50 euros
The shop requires your credit card details when you collect your equipment and full payment is made to the shop at the end of your holiday by cash or credit card.
