/ ski boot rental near Areches
There are several in the town and couple on the road out of Beaufort.
Beaufort also has one opposite the toursit information , at the main crossroads, and another towards the campsite and sports centre.
Enjoy it s really nice little resort, very French.
So its basically "go wherever is cheapest" then?
Hopefully! It should be fun, staying at a friend's wee chalet. Never been to the alps for winter sports before so I'm pretty excited.
It's a nice spot.
If you have a car, try a run into Beaufort - some nice little restaurants there. Plus, try use the village tow up to Les Contamines (take a right turn just before Hautluce and head forthe hydro station) or the village tow from Hauteluce itself up to Les Saisses. I think they are all part of Espace Diamant so some version of the lift pass should get you up there.
Thanks for the advice!
If a chalet is needed I can recommend one :)
