If you don't have your own ski equipment we recommend you hire in Chamonix, not in Britain.
Chamonix has some of the best winter-sports shops in Europe, and equipment tends to be cheaper and better. If you want to change any of it you can do so easily.
Buying locally also makes sense. The ski shops will let you test different skis without charge if you then buy them.
Boots are best bought mid week and custom fitted. With some shops you can go back for adjustments and refits for the natural life of the boot.
We have negotiated preferential rates for Chalet 1802 guests with a 17% to 35% discount at Cyprien Sports dependent on which week you are skiing. They are situated right by The Farmhouse, have the largest selection of skis in Les Houches and a friendly and knowlegeable team.
Includes boots, poles and skis
