Ski Hire in Meribel
There are approximately 12 different ski hire shops in Meribel ranging from budget options through to big, well-stocked shops such as Ski Boutique 1 (see below and the image opposite). There are also ski hire equipment delivery options in Meribel whereby your chosen ski or snowboard kit is delivered (and picked up at the end of the week) directly to your chalet or hotel. A delivery/pick up service will be a more expensive option but might be a more practical option for some.
If you are staying in a catered chalet the staff may drive you to and from your chosen ski hire shop at the beginning and end of your holiday so that you can pick up and drop off your equipment. If there is no driver service available there is always the resort free bus service which will get you around Meribel easily enough.
