Vallee Blanche guided groups

I’d like to join a Vallee Blanche group (as a solo skier) - anyone know if there’s any groups that don’t include equipment hire? Everything I’ve looked at online, price includes transceiver, shovel and probe

to be honest I don't think the equipment hire affects the price very much. I think all groups include the equipment just because the guide wants to ensure you have the right equipment. A kit of transceiver, shovel and probe costs £300 give or take, if they only get a season out of it then it boils down to a few quid a time, which is a far better economy than finding out at an inopportune moment that somebody transceiver doesn't work anymore or their shovel is a flimsy plastic thing.

You could call and ask but I highly expect the safety equipment to be 'complimentary' as opposed to 'included'.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Thanks @dp

The ESF appears to be slightly cheaper but their price includes “coaching” and I can’t see an option for just joining a normal guided group, sans instruction. You don’t know anything about ESF tours do you? Thx
