Ski and Board Hire

With the radical changes over the last 10 years in ski and board technology, your equipment can get out of date very quickly, and as nearly all the airlines now charge €30 each way per pair of skis, it makes more and more sense to hire good quality equipment in resort. We recommend two excellent hire services in Morzine.

François Baud Freeride   http://www.fbfreeride.com/index_mountainhighs.php

For those staying in the centre of the resort (and especially for people planning to use any of the Morzine-based ski schools) we recommend François Baud Freeride. The shop is one of Morzine's most highly regarded - they have superior quality skis, boards and boots, as well as knowledgeable and friendly English-speaking staff, and a highly efficient service Skis range from "performance" carving skis to "Elite" level and the latest test skis for experts. All our clients receive a 20% discount on public hire rates, regardless of the duration of your stay.

You don't need to pre-book any equipment, you can just walk in on your arrival day - but if you do you will get their standard 20% online booking discount for 6-days rental (just click on this link to make your booking http://www.fbfreeride.com/index_mountainhighs.php).

Payment is made in resort directly to François Baud. You can also get a 10% discount on equipment purchase.

All Mountain Rental

Secondly, we highly recommend All Mountain Rental, who offer a superb free delivery and collection servicefor hired equipment, with boot fitting done in the chalet. This is ideal if you are not staying right in the centre, or if you are arriving after the shops shut and want to be kitted up ready to get on the slopes first thing. All Mountain Rental offer 2 levels of equipment: "Premium" which is guaranteed to be 100% new equipment each season (and they are the only ski hire shop in Morzine to guarantee this), and "Standard" which is last years' Premium range. Within each range there are Bronze, Silver and Gold grades of equipment, at varying prices. Also, all hire boots are fitted with Super Feet footbeds, for your additional comfort.

You need to book all your equipment online using the easy system at www.allmountainrental.com. All online hire is now discounted at 20% off their shop rates. Just select "Mountain Highs" from the drop-down list in the booking process and then your accommodation. Once you are on your way up to resort, you'll need to give All Mountain Rental a call on the number they'll provide you with, and they'll then make an arrangement with you to deliver your equipment on the day / evening or your arrival or the following morning.
