Welcome to Alpindepån, Åre's newest ski rental shop with roots reaching back to the early days of skiing in Åre.
We know downhill skiing and we also know that, for many, a great day on the mountain begins in the rental shop.
In the winter of 2014/15 we opened up in the northeast corner of Åre main square (next to restaurant Beefalo) with the ambition to provide Åre's visitors with an even better experience.
Here we will help you find the skis or snowboard that best suit you and your level, we'll service your gear while you grab cup of coffee and chill out in our lounge, and we'll even store your gear overnight so that you don't need take it all back to the hotel when you leave the slopes.
Travel to Åre with EasyJet
Starting in the winter of 2016/17, EasyJet offers direct flights from London Gatwick to Are Ostersund airport.
As an EasyJet customer we offer a 20% discount on rental prices even if you haven't pre-booked. Free valet service is of course also included with any full-gear rental, so that you can safely leave your equipment with us after you're finished in the slopes for the day and change to normal shoes before heading over to the apres ski or back to the hotel!
With our valet service there's no need to take your gear back to the hotel, thus giving you more time to do the stuff you enjoy, like grabbing a cold beer in the après ski, relaxing in front of the fireplace or hitting the pool with the kids.
Our valet service is included when you rent with us, but of course it is also available for a feee for those of you with your own gear.
Sometimes you need to brush up on more than your technique. Every once in a while a set of newly-shaped steel edges will save more than your style.
Servicing our gear regularly is something most of us tend to overlook or forget, as it is in itself a form of art few people master.
At Alpindepån we have many years of experience taking care of and saving the most battered and bruised rental skis imaginable, so why not let us have a go at giving your gear a second chance, even after several seasons' worth of rough love?
The gear you need, when you need it.
The most awesome helmet or best back protector in the world won't do you much good lying in a wardrobe back home. And those goggles won't work very well either if the glass is scratched or not suited for the light conditions that day.
These are mistakes we've all made at some point, which is why we keep these kinds of basic accessories in stock (and even for rent) to save the day or to gear-up for the coming season.
