How much does it cost to hire ski equipment in Arc 2000?
At Erna Low, we set all the ski hire prices to ensure that our customers are receiving the best possible deals from the very best quality in ski equipment. Across the Alps, including Arc 2000 we have established partnerships with the best and most reputable ski equipment retail and rental companies who deal in top manufacturing brands, offered at great prices. All the prices for the ski equipment can be viewed on the ski extras page during the ski holiday booking. The ski extras page comes up just after the ski transfers page and all the prices are displayed next to the equipment categories. The ski equipment is grouped into three categories that reflect not only the product quality but also the performance level of the product and the potential skier. The categories are grouped into Evolution, Performance and Excellence categories. This is because ski equipment ( snowboards and skis in particular) are manufactured to handle the different ski terrains that are faced on the slopes from easy and gentle slopes, to hard and gritty ice surfaces found on glaciers and uncharted off-piste terrain. For instance, Evolution labelled products are best suited for beginners and may not be the best option for the challenging slopes faced by advanced skiers. The prices, therefore, differ across all categories and in so doing, reflect the quality and level of the equipment within each category. If you are making your booking over the phone, our team members will also be able to take you through each product category and provide you with the prices on each of them.
