Ski Wear Companies

Ski train – tickets go on sale in July.

If you are looking for a concise list of ski wear companies – a list of names which we have collected for your convenience from numerous newspapers, magazines and surfing the net, this is the page for you. We have phoned around to get their web page addresses for you.

We gather that most French Skiwear is 10 – 20% cheaper in France because, there is no importer taking a cut, just distributors dealing direct with the manufacturers. According to James Lester at Precision Ski (formerly Carrel Sports) in Les Deux Alpes, it's also no more expensive buying at the resort, as shops sell at the manufacturers recommended price.

Buying ski boots, where's best? There is one big advantage when buying ski boots in France as I found recently with my son. He has wide feet, but a good three hours were spent by the fitter at Precision Ski in Les Deux Alpes. Having tried them out he has been back twice for further adjustments. Impressive.

Want to test a snowboard or ski before you buy? Try visiting one of the ski and snowboard testing events held every year from mid November, where you can try out skis, snowboards and skiwear.

Sales can only be held at Government approved times in France. Race gear is a particular good buy in France, as United Kingdom shops are scared of being left with unsold stock.

There are an increasing number of shops selling ski wear in the Factory shopping centres.

Foreign Office warning – too few skiers have proper insurance. They note that most ski resorts only have private health facilities which are NOT covered by the European Health Insurance Card (old E111).

Good news! Swiss Airlines does not charge its passengers for ski and snowboard equipment transport. One pair of ski (including ski boots and sticks) or one snowboard (including boots) per passanger is included in the ticket price (unless it exceeds the free baggage allowance). In 2009 at the annual Guardian and Observer Travel Awards ceremony, Swiss won the "Best short haul airline" award.
