You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here. Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end. Some companies may also deliver so it’s worth looking at all the options.

Instructors & Lessons
When staying here, you’ll need to book your own ski or snowboard lessons. Tuition is strongly recommended for complete beginners and is always a good idea whatever your level to perfect your technique. Group lessons are a great way for children to learn with their peers whilst giving you some free time on the slopes. Groups are also a generally cheaper option for adults, however, with a private instructor you’ll have undivided attention and be able to progress at your own pace.

- "We stayed in the Almes 1 in April and had a great time. The apartment was spacious, very comfortable and ideally placed for the slopes. The walk from the boot room to the slopes was about 20-30 metres up a small incline and you were on the piste which took you down to the Palafour and Toviere ski lifts. On the way back you could ski to within 10 metres of the entrance to the apartment. The boot room was good and the lockers spacious with boot dryers. We made all our arrangements by email with Pauline who was really helpful. You ordered food online from a local Sherpa and arrived to find it all in the kitchen and fridge which was wonderful. All the rooms were well furnished and spacious. I would absolutely come and stay again and have no hesitation in recommending it, unless it meant I could not book next year :-)" - Trip Advisor
- "This is the third year at this great place! We have been staying for 4 weeks. Very spacious and clean apartment and good location. Pauline is always so welcoming and friendly. She has organised ski passes for us prior to our arrival. Will be definitely back next year!" - Trip Advisor
- "We stayed there for one week in Feb and it was great, the apartment is spacious, well equipped, the rooms / beds are comfortable, the ski lift is close, there are plenty of shops and supermarkets around. And we had free access to the sauna in the building in the evening. The service and information prior to our arrival was good, clear and if I had any question the reply would come quickly. A good price for what we got. I would not mind going again." - Trip Advisor
