Ski Hire in Peisey Les Arcs
Sport 2000 (Noz Sports)
Based in Plan Peisey at the top of the 'lobster pots' from Peisey village, Noz Sports not only do they offer a range of skis and boards for all levels but also great discounts for our guests. Helmets are available too. They also will look after the equipment overnight so you can walk to the lift in normal boots not having to worry about lugging your gear back and forth.
You can either book directly or send us a list of names, height, level of skier and shoe size and they will be ready for your arrival. The latter option means that you only pay for the days used at the end of the period and, in case of an accident, you would not have to claim back on insurance for lost days on pre-booked/purchased ski hire.
Rental Republic is an excellent personal ski and snowboard butler service. They deliver to your chalet and fit you there and then, taking all the hassle out of ski hire. No more queueing or walking to shops ever!
When your technician is 20 minutes away from the chalet they will send you a text to let you know so you don't have to hang around waiting. Each person then gets a personal equipment fitting from the technician who carry lots of spare boots, skis and boards and are trained to pass on their tips and tricks for comfy feet and safe skiing/snowboarding. They visit and fit until 10pm every day so you can get out on the slopes for first lift. There is no locker option with RR but Chalet Barthelemy has ample space in its heated boot and equipment room. is not available.
Need support in resort? Something not fitting well? Rental Republic are just a text message away and aim to be with you within the hour between 8am and 10pm, 7 days a week. Plus they will send you a text on the morning of your departure with a collection time slot!
It is advisable to book in advance especially during the peak weeks to avoid disappointment. We are happy to help if needed!

There is a choice of ski schools in Peisey with each offering something different, be it set group lessons, more flexibility and choice or English instructors.
New Generation (English Ski School)
New Generation run a superb English ski school which offers smaller group lessons and private lessons. They are great for those that take their skiing seriously and want to advance quicker or for those that want a lesson in pure English! We are happy to book the lessons or you can contact them direct, but be sure to explain which chalet you are staying in as you will not make a 9.00 am meeting time in Vallandry unless you have your own car, so aim for 11.30 or noon! They have limited instructors so early booking is absolutely necessary.
Please ask about Xmas, New Year and Half term timings and lesson types as they are run slightly differently.
Level 1 - This is my first time, or maybe I’ve had a taster. I’m learning how to stop, turn, take lifts and ski safely.
Level 2 - I can snowplough and turn competently on green runs.
Level 3 - I’m comfortable on green and easy blue runs. I’m learning and advancing towards parallel turning.
Level 4 - I can already consistently perform basic parallel turns and feel happy on groomed red runs.

High Five Snowboarding
High Five Snowboarding opened in 2017 and takes small groups of 4 minimum and private lessons. They are based in Bourg St Maurice but will come up to Peisey. Rather than being skiers that teach boarding, they are snowboarding specialists and are passionate about teaching the sport to children as well as to adults. They speak English and have had great reviews from guests who have used this school last season so we highly recommend them.
