This innovative ski hire site allows you conveniently to hire everything you need for your skiing trip at unbeatable prices and discounts and with the added bonus that you can collect your kit directly on the slopes.
Small resort but big enjoyment
It's not always necessary to go to a big ski resort. La Chapelle d'Abondance is actually a small, French mountain resort with fewer than 1000 inhabitants. However, it is also a real gem which is set in one of the most attractive and renowned ski areas of the Alps. Its town centre is certainly not remarkable for its size, but nonetheless it provides its visitors with numerous pistes where they can practise their favourite sport.
La Chapelle d'Abondance is, in fact, situated on the border of the Portes du Soleil. This ski area between France and Switzerland boasts 650 km of pisted ski runs that are all perfectly linked and accessible. You can also ski in the marked out area at the base of Mont de Grange, which has gentler slopes that are especially suited to beginners.
A cuisine with unique tastes
To fully experience life in the Alps you will want to linger on the snowy slopes of La Chapelle d'Abondance, taking on challenges and downhill adventures and, if possible, achieving new goals. Thanks to partners like Skib you will have access to high-performance and safe mountain kit, for example helmets, skis and bindings. Finally, you will be able to relax and recuperate in front of some excellent local dishes, for example French cuisine, which are full of flavour and truly original.
