Courchevel Ski Equipment Hire Overview

An absolute joy to visit, the glamorous Courchevel 1850 is part of the Three Valleys, one of the largest lift-linked ski areas in the world. With up to 600 kilometres of snow-sure pistes to explore across the area, notwithstanding the stunning beauty of the Three Valleys, Courchevel is truly an amazing experience. On the slopes, the pistes across the Three Valleys are so vast that every ski ability is catered for so regardless of your ski level, there are pistes to indulge everyone. More importantly, before planning your ski hire, please ensure that you are hiring the equipment best suited to your ski ability and the type of pistes and terrain you plan on spending most of your time on. Ski products like snowboards and skis are manufactured differently to match the type of terrain and the ability of the user so it is important that you are aware of what category of ski equipment best suits you. The categories will be elaborated on further in detail. Read on for more information.

How much does it cost to hire ski equipment in Courchevel?

At Erna Low, we always strive to ensure that all our prices across the board are competitive and our customers are always in line to receive the best possible quality in products at value for money. Our ski hire partners at all the resorts across the Alps, Courchevel included, are some of the most trusted and well-known ski equipment providers in the industry. All prices for the ski equipment can be found on the ski extras page during the ski holiday booking process. You will find the prices displayed on the page, next to the different categories of the ski equipment, which have been categorised according to their quality and level of performance. As mentioned earlier, skis, snowboards and other ski equipment are manufactured differently to handle the various ski terrain on the slopes from easy, wide-open pistes to difficult and challenging terrain. The higher the level of the product, the more advanced in design and functionality, which will most likely differ in the cost of hire. A typical example will be the difference in Excellence and Evolution labelled products, with the Excellence products often longer and stiffer and best suited to performing well at high speeds and on steeper gradients; the type of terrain dominated by advanced skiers. Evolution labelled products are suited for beginners and are usually shorter and more flexible to allow for easy turning at slower speeds and can easily handle gentle slopes with a low gradient. As you will find, the prices of the different categories will differ. For more information on prices or specific quotes, please do not hesitate to contact our team.
