Skiset was established in 1994 by former ski champions Annie Famose and Leo Lacroix and leading tour operators Pierre Favre, Alain and Bernard Front and Patrick Lepeudry. It has grown into the largest ski rental provider in Europe and also covers destinations in the USA and Canada.
With a rental market not governed by any particular standards originally, Skiset asserted itself with a technical charter based on three principles:
- The limited life of the equipment it offered for hire: two years for Discovery and Performance categories and three years for Economy
- Security: equipment serviced, checked and maintained after each hire
- All repairs are carried out by qualified professionals
Skiset has a 40% market share of mountain equipment rental in France, with a European turnover of 400 million Euro’s per season across its partner store network.
There’s 800 shops in 400 ski resorts in countries including, France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Andorra, Spain, Germany, Bulgaria, Slovenia, USA and Canada.
