Snowsports Gear
Nearly every sports shop in Andorra has a snowsports equipment rental operation and, since virtually every other shop in Andorra is a sports shop, there is plenty of choice and competition to keep prices keen and gear quality high.

Most visitors travelling with a tour operator tend to leave the organisation of equipment hire to their reps. Newly arrived guests will usually be taken en masse for equipment fitting early on their first morning on the mountain (usually Monday).

Most of the ski shops also offer equipment servicing, waxing, edge & base preparation plus repair services for your own gear, for a fee; as well as technical clothing and accessories sales.
Most hotels have their own equipment storage rooms, and sometimes lockers too. There are also locker rental operations provided by some of the larger equipment hire shops closest to the town pistes. Lockers are also available at the services buildings at Grau Roig, and at the high-altitude Solanelles services building at the Collada d'Enradort next to the upper terminal of the Funicamp, but these are for full-season rental only.
Don't Lose It !
With so much similar-looking rental equipment in use, it is very common for people to confuse their hire gear with someone elses.
All hire gear is marked with a serial number: make a note of this and carefully observe what your gear looks like before leaving it near other similar models.
Make use of the lockable piste-side racks, and/or mix & match each ski with one of your mates' if you need to leave equipment unattended; snowboarders should carry a light chain & padlock to secure their gear.
