/ Equipment Hire - Chamonix
What are you after, I have some kit she/he can borrow - just a few £/€'s in an MRT would be grand.
I work in London, but am out of the country for the next couple of weeks.
Snell has the best selection and quite decent prices. They won't rip you off.
Cheers mate, unfortunately we are heading off on the 7am ferry tomorrow morning so have probably left it a bit late in terms of sorting things out at this end!
Have actually just been on the Decathalon website, they have a shop in Calais that sells basic ice axes for about 40 euro, might just head there instead!
Where in town are you working these days?
I'm in Battersea - commute to/from Christchurch.
Shame about that, especially as you're getting a ferry, weight wouldn't have been an issue. Hey-ho... ppppppp!
Have fun and be safe.
Just checked the snell sports hire rates.
5 day hire for ice axe and crampons, 35 and 45 euros respectfully, buying both items in Decathalon is 100 euros, looks like I shall be stopping off in Calais...........I fecking love Decathalon! Dangerous place to be if you are not focused on what you need to buy!
from the midi lift, sells cheap gear, they hire all equipment needed for the mountains,
Someone will know the name of the shop
You're thinking of Technique Extreme. Never hired anything but had a few little bits of gear off them. All generally okay.
+1 The Primark of outdoor shops
Then just try on all the crazy hats for fun,
but they do hire out all gear if you need it.
