Grand Massif Ski Hire
We recommend that ski hire be organised in advance before you arrive in Le Grand Massif. This is particularly important during the school holidays when the best ski hire companies in Le Grand Massif book out all of their equipment before the week has started. Pre-booking your ski and snowboard equipment makes your arrival at your ski chalet much smoother as you will not need to take time finding local ski hire shops.
Samoens Ski Hire (Chalet Samoens + Ferme St Christophe)
We recommend Ski Set in Samoens and can offer our guests a 20% discount. The big advantage of Ski Set is that they are the only company that have ski lockers at Samoens 1600 and are for the exclusive use of their customers. Guests can hire equipment in Samoens Village and during the week leave their equipment in the Samoens 1600 lockers each day. This is very convenient if guests do not wish to bring their skis and snowboards back down into the village each day.
Morillon Ski Hire (Chalet Mautalent)
For ski hire in Morillon we recommend Twinner Sports and we are pleased to be able to offer our guests a 20% discount on their normal prices. A great thing about Twinner Sports is that they are located right next to the Morillon cable car and they let our guests leave their ski equipment there overnight. This is a nice option as it means that you don’t have to take your ski equipment back to your ski chalet each day.
