Ski Hire in Morzine
Morzine is a surprisingly large and spread out alpine town with a large selection of hotels and over 300 chalets (either privately owned or rented through the ski holiday market). With its huge popularity as a winter sports destination it's not surprising that the year round population of nearly 3,000 inhabitants swells to over 25,000 in the peak winter weeks. There are therefore lots of ski hire shops and rental delivery services on offer in Morzine.
There are 10 or more ski rental shops in Morzine and these range from the cheap franchise outlets of Intersport, Sport 2000 and Skimium to larger independent shops such as Francois Baud (see FB Freeride below). There is certainly plenty of choice.

At a pre-arranged time suitable to you (between 8am and 9pm) they arrive at your chalet where one of their mobile ski technicians will spend the time to make sure you get the perfect equipment with the perfect fit.
