Ski Equipment Hire

riosportlogHighly reputed Intersport Rio Sport have two shops in Sierra Nevada.

Their main rental store is located in the Plaza de Andalucía, close to the Al-Andalus Gondola entrance, and their other is located in Plaza de Pradollano, near the Parador chairlift. Here you will find not only the latest equipment, but the management staff pride themselves on keeping it regularly maintained whilst offering a professional service.

Intersport Rio Sport - Base for the British Ski Center

They have professional and knowledgable staff to help you to make the right choice both for renting and buying ski and snowboard equipment.

The rental rates are competitive with all other major collaborating equipment hire establishments, and if you don't mind spending a little extra they have many of the latest ski and snowboard models available for testing.

The British Ski Center operates out of their lower shop by the Al-Andalus gondola, catering for all English speaking tuition requirements. The shop here opens from 08.30-20.00 daily.

Discounted Equipment Hire*

Contact the British Ski Center when reserving your tuition with brief details on the equipment you will be renting and we will email you a 10% or 15% discount voucher (depending on how many of you will be renting) to be applied to the shops advertised in-resort rental rates**. The rates below are correct as from the start of the winter season and may be subjected to modification by the shop management at any point. We hold no influence whatsoever with any changes that may be made.


*Equipment will not be set aside for collection upon arrival!

**Discounts apply for all season periods and subject entirely on availability of equipment at the time of rental.

If you are travelling in high-season periods, (including February half term) we recommend you obtain your equipment the evening before your first day skiing, (preferably after 6pm), as this will save time from the morning queues as well as potential disappointment with stock becoming limited!

Discounts are honoured subject to availability at the time of rental. The owners of Rio Sport are in-part Australian and hence English speaking is not a problem. Most of the staff are English speaking and are all trained in equipment hire, fittings and sale of equipment and quality ski clothing. Equipment is available for adults and children alike.
