As far as I can tell they're all at least OK.

We usually send friends to Ivan's - Tako Sports.

The one upstairs rents out Stöcklis which is always a nice thing.

Yes nice skis to have the opportunity to rent as you dont get them in many places it seems.

Where do you send your enemies?

Toki sports under the hotel de champoluc are good, the boot room and boot warmers are first class, but ski servicing is not cheap.. I think last year it was 18 euros.
Frachey sports are just under the lift, boot warmer not very good, ie cold boots in a morning but dry !! Can get a bit busy in there if your changing. Ski service for wax snd edge is ten euro.
Theres also another place inbeyween but i cant remember its name but its next the the mini market, again servicing is about ten euro, .
Ive not rented skis from any of them but have been told theres nit much difference in cost.. As they all want the business.
All of them do free storage...

For warm boots use tako under the hotel, for convenience use Frachey sport under the lift, stairs take you out next to left office ..

Try the LA GLISSE next to the spar (CRAI) shop.. out of the hotel and go right... the Tako sports are not cheap even if you store your skis there !! the other place to try is next to the the lift at the bottom, To get to it there's a passageway next to La Glisse that leads up through the shop upto the lift... there is a ski-set place a few yards further on but not sure they service skis anymore...

we stay at the champoluc hotel every year... will be there on january the 14th...

Ah right great stuff just praying for more snow now even though the pistes are open it would be nice to venture off and around the place with a guide in decent conditions.

they used to advertise in the hotel for a day off-piste for 50 euro, they might be doing it again this season !, but there should be a fair bit to do up at indra even now.. @under a new name will know better but there's more pistes open now than there was in january last year...

@meandrew, in usual seasons maybe but we committed the schoolboy error of renting the apartment out for the whole season without reserving any time for ourselves... !
