Buying Skis in-resort

Would you buy a car without test-driving it first? With the ever-increasing diversity of skis, the same thing could be said of buying skis. Freeride.fr, with specialist ski shops in Méribel and Courchevel, offers you the chance to do just this, free of charge, and make sure you end up with the right skis for your requirements, whether that be cruising around the pistes, riding the powder or freestyling in the parks.

By visiting their shops and talking to an experienced and friendly staff member, you’ll be questioned about your skiing ability, preferences and experience and sent out to test normally one to four pairs of the most suitable skis available.

After trying the skis for a maximum of two hours each, on pistes recommended by Freeride.fr or on your own choice of terrain, you can fill in your thoughts on the rating cards provided and make your choice of new skis.

If you want to test the skis for longer than two hours, you pay a small charge which is refunded from your purchase. The test skis are all dedicated to testing, which means they are not used for rental purposes and are in brand-new condition.

Freeride.fr stocks a wide range of skis from K2, Head, Dynastar, Salomon, Rossignol, Movement, Armada and Volkl. Freeride.fr can be contacted via www.freeride.fr or on +33 (0) 479 00 4241.
