Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Ski Touring gear rental

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Trip coming up in Gran Paradiso out of Alagna in 2 weeks where we plan to do various day tours. My sister is coming along, good skier but never goes and does not have touring kit. Trying to find somewhere that rents touring kit, skins, skis and boots. I think it's going to be a bit of a long shot. Anybody know if anywhere? (Or in Nice where we depart from)

@jbk12, if driving up from Nice presume you'll be coming through our neck of the woods, Briancon / Serre Chevalier?

If so advise accordingly and I'll give you the details of a couple of places.

Thanks guys, unsure if we will be taking a route through Briancon, but all the same would be good to have details of shops that will rent touring boots skis and skins, in case we do go through there.

@jbk12, your other option of a route from Nice would take through Limone Piemonte, Cuneo, Turin etc

This shop has excellent rental touring gear

I've hired from Sporthaus before - it's right next to the lift in Alagna and seemed to have a pretty good selection of gear. I didn't rent boots though - just skis/skins/crampons

+1 for https://www.braemarmountainsports.com/

However, specifically for Alagna, try contacting SportHaus, located at the bottom of the Alagna-Pianalunga gondola
