Originally we concentrated on helping our customers find flats and apartments in Tignes but in 2007 we started our ski and snowboard hire business. For years we had been amazed at the number of people we saw on the mountain with unsuitable equipment, that not only had they been over charged for, but that was hindering their progression on the slopes and enjoyment from their holiday.
Initially we provided a solely mobile ski and snowboard delivery service, where we would fit out our clients in the comfort of their holiday accommodation. From the beginning we concentrated on providing top end equipment instead of the sub standard rental gear that other shops had become accustomed to supplying.
Focusing on customer service and providing the perfect set up for each of our customers led to the development of our company. Evolving from a small partnership we have steadily grown year on year, increasing stock levels, expanding premises and employing more ski technicians and drivers.
In 2008 we built and kitted out our own workshop and by the 2010/11 season Tignes Spirit was made up of 8 members of staff and had moved into a brand new shop in the heart of Lavachet - allowing us to offer both the mobile delivery and in-shop rentals. Having these premises has improved our service no end and has enabled us to become an official test centre for Endeavor Snowboards and Storm Skis.
We boast English, French, German, Spanish and Italian speakers amongst us. Our staff are a good mix of skiers and snowboarders, varying ages, all with a passion for winter sports and a love for the mountains.
We are proud of our equipment and service and happy to be able to promise our customers:
We are so confident in what we have to offer that we have a price match guarantee, meaning we won't be beaten on price in resort or online. So along with the local knowledge and enthusiasm we have as a group we'll ensure you get your holiday started in the right manner and will remove the stress and hassle from your equipment hire experience.
