Did you know, in France 263 000 skis are thrown out each year (https://www.adnskis.com/#projet)? It’s a huge shame as most are still in very good condition and perfect for rental consumption, the only thing is they are not the latest models.

For many of us, trying to be more responsible with our consumption is now part of our everyday life. This responsibility does not have to stop there though, and can continue to your ski holiday. Here at Ski Hut we want to show you how you can rent more responsibly, at the same time as saving you money. Sounds impossible? Well read on…


The Ski Hut concept

Ski Hut is like no other rental store… We ‘re-rent’ skis and snowboards that have previously come from high-end rental shops. We give a second life to this equipment, which is usually in good condition, through our expert maintenance and servicing. Because we are not buying brand new, our prices are very affordable and do not change all season. There are no hidden costs. The price you see is the price you pay.

Thanks to Ski Hut, skis, poles, snowboards and pairs boots are thus kept in circulation thanks to our expert care and attention. Our goal is to allow you to enjoy the pleasures of skiing (or snowboarding), without breaking the bank, and while offering a small gesture to our planet with 2nd life equipment.

However, one thing that does not get overlooked, is the quality of our service. Our qualified ski technicians make every effort to provide you with the best advice and support when choosing your equipment. They also take great care servicing our skis and snowboards, helping extend their lifespan at the same time as providing the best possible sliding experience for you.
