One of the most well-known and loved destinations for winter sports in France's Haute-Savoie is Samoens, a village of less than 3000 people that, during the coldest months, turns into a mecca for Europe's skiers and snowboarders.
If you are planning a day on the slopes or a ski week in Samoens and you want to leave for your holiday stress-free, choose Skib, a simple and convenient online equipment rental service that lets you choose the best equipment for any need from a wide selection of brands, at reduced prices.
After booking from the comfort of your own home before leaving, you will be able to collect your equipment directly on the slopes at Jay Sport, a rental shop that is something of an institution in Samoens. Their professional and passionate team will welcome you warmly, give you advice and answer any questions you might have.
240 km of slopes on the border with Switzerland
Samoens is ideally located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, only a 45-minute drive from Switzerland and Geneva, and the ski area it belongs to consists of ben 240 km of slopes for all levels, although most of them are of medium-high difficulty. Nevertheless, a special area for children makes Samoens a favourite destination for young families.
After renting your equipment through Skib, all you need to do is hop on your skis or snowboard and set off to explore this beautiful ski area.
