Your ideal ski equipment

Choosing the ski or snowboard category is essential to ensure a fun experience and successful vacation!

So, here are the five equipment categories we offer for adults:

  • INITIATION - For beginners who want to get into skiing, playful skis, easy to handle, and very forgiving.
  • EVOLUTION - For beginner to intermediate skiers who have had a few weeks of skiing and want to progress. Skis are forgiving and easy to handle.
  • SENSATION - For intermediate to advanced skiers looking for thrills. These skis tend to be stiffer than other categories, which means more responsiveness and more effort required from the skier.
  • PERFORMANCE - For enthusiasts who want high-end equipment (skis from this year or the previous year). These are stiff skis designed for skilled skiers.
  • PRESTIGE - For experts looking for demanding equipment (skis from this year).

And here are the seven equipment categories we offer from a young age to adolescence:

  • KID INITIATION [From 3 to 6 years old - maximum 120 cm] - Range dedicated to little ones. Playful and easy, it's ideal for discovering the joys of skiing!

  • JUNIOR SENSATION [From 7 to 12 years old - maximum 160 cm] - For budding champions, full of energy and eager for new skiing sensations! A perfect range for quickly progressing on slopes or in snowparks.
  • JUNIOR PERFORMANCE [From 7 to 12 years old - maximum 160 cm] - Suitable for highly skilled children, starting from the gold star level. Performance and precision guaranteed.
  • ADO EVOLUTION [From 13 to 17 years old - maximum 170 cm] - Range intended for teenagers from beginner to intermediate levels.

Why get ski insurance?

When considering a ski vacation, it's essential to examine all aspects of the trip to ensure your safety and peace of mind. Skiing, although exciting and fun, carries risks that should not be overlooked. Therefore, it is crucial to ask yourself: Is it necessary to take out insurance when going skiing?

The answer is YES, without a doubt!

Indeed, depending on your planned activities, especially if you intend to go off-piste, mountain rescues can incur considerable expenses if special means are deployed to rescue you in case of an incident. It is essential to check the terms of your insurance contracts and the coverage offered by your credit cards, but don't hesitate to maximize your protection. Even if you are confident in your alpine skiing skills, you could cause injury to others or be injured by a less experienced skier.

On-piste intervention costs typically range from 300 to 350 euros, plus ambulance costs, approximately 150 to 180 euros, to take you to the hospital or a local doctor.

In case of an off-piste accident, intervention costs can rise to 500 to 600 euros, not including ambulance costs. If you ski as a family without adequate insurance, your mountain stay could be very costly.

Therefore, it is recommended to spend a few extra euros to benefit from insurance covering all evacuation expenses in case of an emergency.

 

How to choose the best ski insurance?

When looking for ski insurance for your family, it is crucial to consider several factors, including:

  • Level of coverage: Choose coverage tailored to your specific needs, considering each family member's skill level, the duration of your stay, and planned activities.
  • 24/7 medical assistance: Ensure your insurance offers 24/7 medical assistance in case of an emergency.
  • Refund of lift passes and equipment: Check the reimbursement conditions in case of cancellation or interruption of your stay.
  • General Conditions: Carefully examine the insurance terms and conditions to understand all exclusions and limitations.

Opting for ski insurance when you go to the mountains as a family is a wise decision. It guarantees safety and peace of mind as well as the protection of your investment, allowing you to fully enjoy your vacation. Ski safely and enjoy every moment on the slopes with the certainty of being covered, no matter what happens unexpectedly.

If this modification results in an additional cost, it will be required at the store when you visit (if you already had a balance to pay in-store, it will be adjusted; if not, it will create one).

Conversely, if this modification results in a price decrease, there are two possibilities: you have a significant balance in-store that can cover the amount, or you don't have a balance in-store, in which case we will refund the amount directly to the card used for payment.

Preparing for your arrival

Your means of transport

To facilitate your arrival at the ski resort, decide in advance on your mode of transportation.

All resorts are accessible by car, but snow equipment is now mandatory for the majority of them from November to March (for more information, check the website of road safety). Make sure you have quality snow tires that are suitable for snowy conditions. In case of extreme weather conditions, such as in some resorts, certain equipment is essential to have in the trunk, such as chains or snow socks.

Opting for the train proves to be a convenient and ecological solution, as many cities near ski resorts have railway connections, some of which are served by high-speed trains. To reach the ski resort from the train station, various means of transportation such as shuttles, buses, and taxis are available. Some resorts even offer combined "train + bus" offers that are very competitive in terms of travel time, fares, and environmental impact.

Although less frequently used, air travel remains a viable transportation option. Many ski resorts are located about a hundred kilometers from an international airport, with shuttles available to quickly transport travelers to the resort. Often wrongly considered the most expensive mode of transportation, air travel proves to be the fastest and safest solution. Moreover, for trips of several hundred kilometers, air travel remains undoubtedly the best choice.

Your personal equipment

To ensure your stay goes smoothly, also consider your personal equipment. Yes, when you head to the mountains, temperatures can drop drastically! So, make sure you are properly equipped: winter clothing, ski gloves, beanie, neck warmers, make sure you don't forget anything.

It's essential that your clothing is also breathable, as under the sun, during intense physical activity, heat can quickly rise. Also, don't forget snow boots to keep your feet dry during your walks!

If you need to complete your equipment, don't hesitate to visit our website specialized in ski clothing sales.
