WELCOME TO ‘FREESKI’ MERIBEL
Situated right in the centre of the resort, FREESKI Meribel offers top of the range equipment at very reasonable prices. Catering for every level of skier, you are guaranteed to have the best quality equipment, serviced and fitted exactly to your personal measurements.
The shop is very central - it's less than a minute walk to the escalator by the Tourist Office that takes you directly onto the ski slope.
We have a friendly and conscientious team of staff with both French and English native speakers so there's no problem being understood.
FREESKI offers you high quality equipment with high quality service.
We stock the highest quality equipment from a range of leading manufacturers to make sure you always have the best equipment to get the most out of your holiday: K2 - SALOMON - VOLKL - ROSSIGNOL - ATOMIC - NORDICA - BLACK CROWS - LANGE - DYNASTAR - BLIZZARD - FACTION - MOVEMENT - TECNICA - DALBELLO
Freeski Meribel has become a store renowned for the quality of its products and its excellent service - which continue to improve with every season.
We believe in offering a professional and quality service. This belief is reflected in the attitude of our friendly and knowledgeable staff and in our selection of top of the range equipment. Most of our equipment is brand new every year and, with a wide range of different styles and models available, we're proud to have something to suit every level.
On the internet, you'll find all sorts of incredible deals .... But remember if it seems too good to be true, it probably is! There is no secret - not all skis are equal. The age, model and condition of the ski make the difference. If you're willing to compromise on the age of the equipment, you will pay less but at what cost? You've spent good money on your ski holiday so don't spoil your enjoyment on the slopes by making false economies on your ski hire.
We like to be up-front and honest - we offer 2 categories of kit based on the age of the equipment - Premium & Eco. When you book the best equipment, that is what you'll get. But whatever you choose, you'll get advice and service from experts who care.
PREMIUM Gear is guaranteed to be new this season ! The age, the fit, the suitability and the condition of the equipment are all essential if you want to have the best chance of really enjoying and developing your skiing. So do yourself a favour and rent the best and newest equipment ... It makes a big difference !
Our ECO skis are the best price in Meribel. Eco skis are maximum 2 seasons old. It is a great compromise in terms of price/age...Of course you can't expect quite as much in terms of feedback, response and liveliness from these older skis as you would from a new model, but all our skis have all been properly serviced in-house since new, so the bases glide well and the edges are still pretty sharp.
FREESKI Meribel offer a chalet delivery service so that your equipment is ready and waiting for you when you arrive. Once you're in resort, one of our ski technicians will visit to check everything is okay and to make any technical adjustments needed. This added extra service has a small supplementary charge of 10€ for the first client and an extra 5€ for each additional person. This allows you to have your equipment fitted in your chalet and saves a visit to the shop.
If you'd prefer to come into the shop, our minibus collection service is avaiable at no extra charge.
Our rental policy is quite simple: To get the right equipment - be it skis, boots, snowboards, poles, helmets - first time around. Keeping the process interesting, informative and enjoyable so that you can enjoy your holiday and spend your time on the mountain, not in the rental shop !
Our system is designed to guide you through the shop from one section to the next quickly and efficiently while ensuring all tasks are carried out correctly, with all necessary information recorded.
BLACK CROWS OFFICIAL TECHNICAL CENTRE - Freeski Meribel is the only test centre in resort.

We highly recommend that you ski with a guide for your safety and enjoyment and we can organize and reserve a safe and professional local ski guide for you.
Keeping the bases and edges on your equipment in good shape is crucial to easier turns and better edge hold. It will also help your equipment last longer. Drop your kit into the shop after skiing and collect it, fully serviced and ready to go, on your way to the lifts the very next morning.
Every single item of FREESKI equipment is properly serviced before it is handed out - one of the things that makes FreeSki rental unique, whilst also ensuring the highest standards of performance and safety.

Forgotten something? Don't worry, we have a large selection of ski helmets, ski goggles, gloves, backpacks, beanies and socks - in fact, everything you need to have fun on the mountains ......
Wearing a helmet on the slopes is a wise choice regardless of your ability and experience. It allows you to have a great time on the slopes while staying safe. Good goggles are essential to give you clear vision in all conditions, so you can concentrate on your skiing. Ski gloves and mittens are important and will help stop you getting cold, damp and chapped hands, as well as offering protection should you fall.
Ski boots are a critical component of your ski set-up, so getting the right size and fit is essential to having fun on the slopes.
Correct ski bootfitting is extremely important for a comfortable and precise ride. Our professionals evaluate your feet and ski ability to find the perfect fit for you.
