One of the Ski Rental Specialists in Meribel. We have chosen to partner with them because Oscar and his team  are able to offer both shop service and chalet fit with collection service.

You can pre-book your equipment hire online and it will be delivered to Chalet Caro ready for you on arrival. . Once you have settled in, an experienced ski technician will visit you in the comfort of Chalet Caro to ensure all equipment fits perfectly, and will make any changes if required, leaving you to relax and enjoy your first evening in the chalet, and avoid the big queues in the hire shops. At the end of your stay, simply leave your equipment in the chalet and Meribel Ski Service will collect it.

If you prefer you can collect your equipment from their shop, where you can also purchase a wide range of clothing, accessories and safety equipment. Méribel Ski Service’s shop is in the centre of town, 100 metres up from the Tourist office and the escalator to/from the slopes.

Meriski Ski Service offer an overnight lockering service with all rentals, so their central location is perfect for those wanting to leave their equipment in town overnight and walk back to the chalet via the shops wearing comfortable walking shoes, and then take the short walk back in the morning without the need to carry equipment on the bus. Dont forget to take your shoes to the shop to change into later.

All skis and boards are serviced on-site, with either Olivier or Oscar, the owners of Méribel Ski Service, checking each piece as it goes through. Alternatively, if you have equipment of your own that’s in need of a service, you’ll find yourself in safe hands.
