Snowberry has brilliant equipment and service, highly trained staff and an efficient minibus service. While there are cheaper options for ski hire, Snowberry is the only shop we know guaranteeing that its Premium equipment is new every season. They buy over 800 pairs of skis a year, more than 80 different models at all levels from beginner to test, and 500 pairs of boots. If you have some spare time it’s worth reading their comprehensive website!
The Economy category uses last season’s equipment – so still only one year old – for a lower price. Economy is available only if pre-booked in advance online.
They have seven further levels of skis including the very best Expert and Test right at the top. Hence their claim to have a ski for every skier-type and the best range of children’s skis in Val d’Isère!
They take obsessive care with boot fitting, have a fleet of vehicles to ferry guests to and from their chalet, collect skis from the chalet at the end of the week so guests don’t have to return them, and is staffed entirely by English-speakers (plus a handful of Scots).
You can leave skis and boots with the shop overnight and just walk back to your chalet in your own shoes – particularly useful for nearby chalets Les Gnellets and La Moraine.
