there's also zeroconf as the alternative, or directly downloading the zip

Also Stef made a flash stick with Pharo, videos, etc. exactly for places
like this (with bad or no internet).

But of course PharoLauncher shouldn't crash. Alternatively PharoLauncher as
far as I know has a local cache, so maybe if you need just a fresh image
and not the latest one you could reuse that?
