Sports shops

Like the other players in the resort, the sports and equipment rental stores have taken every precaution to provide customers with quality equipment and service that is 100% secure.
In addition to the “classic” barrier gestures (wearing a compulsory mask, providing hydroalcoholic gel, ventilating the premises, etc.), sports shops have implemented additional measures:
Reinforced disinfection of equipment (on all contact areas): skis, boots, helmets, poles, etc. with certified devices and products (virucides / bactericides / fungicides)
Reinforced cleaning protocol in the store (certified cleaning products)
Establishment of a direction of circulation for the rental of skis during peak periods with entry and exit through two different doors.
Support for clients by family (fitting, etc.)
Some stores have set up a “Drive” or “Click & Collect” system for ski rental: online reservation without fitting, collection at a specific time slot to limit the flow (replacement and disinfection of equipment possible).

Contact the sports shops in Manigod directly to find out about their booking and sales conditions.
