Skiing in Leysin region

My husband and I are planning on being in Leysin for one full day the beginning of March. We are trying to go skiing and must rent equipment. We have been unable to find online if there is somewhere we can go to rent equipment and lift tickets. We are very unsure of where to even begin. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Practical Information
Not a lot of runs in Leysin but it's good for a day of easy skiing if you're staying around Lake Geneva.
If you want a larger ski area then head about 30 minutes east to the 4 Vallees ski area including Verbier, La Tzoumaz, Nendaz and Veysonnaz. Many of the people who live around Lake Geneva go here to ski. There are 400 km of ski trails all interlinked by a system of gondolas, cablecars, and lifts. Spectacular views of the Italian, French and Swiss Alps from the runs - one of my favorite places in Europe during the winter. Very well-set up for visitors who want to rent equipment and they are used to English speaking travelers as many Brits come here year round.

The Swiss skiing infrastructure is legendary. You can even rent ski clothes in most places.
