Travelling to a ski resort is not always plain sailing. We’ve all been there. The preparation, the packing, the early-morning travel, long transfers across winding roads, tired children and equally fatigued parents can result in a truly nerve-heightening arrival day. It’s hardly surprising then that once you actually arrive at your accommodation, the last thing you’ll want to do is head out again to the rental shops to stand in line to ensure your whole party is fitted with skis and boots in time for their first morning on the slopes. Thankfully, there is another option. Chalet-fitting services let the skis come to you.
HOW IT WORKS
Book over the phone or online with Oxygène, choose the style of skis or snowboard and boots that you require and provide details of boot size, weight, height and ability for all of the members in your party. Simply let them know where you’re staying and what time you’re expecting to arrive in resort, and they’ll take care of the rest so you can kick your feet up, sit back and finally relax. The chalet-fitting crew will provide you with an estimated fitting time, but – just in case of flight delays, changes in your plans or any unforeseen circumstances – they remain completely flexible and at your service.
The team will arrive at your accommodation, their new vans/mobile ski shops packed to the gills with everything they need to ensure you’re left completely fitted and raring to go. At all times, the vans are stocked with alternative sizes for your specific equipment requests as well as a wide-range of skis, boards, boots and poles in a variety of adult’s and child’s sizes. So, should a member of your party have a change of heart regarding what they’d like to hire, or if someone has neglected to hire anything at all, the fitters waste no time by providing on-the-spot solutions.
Similarly, should you encounter a problem during your stay, the crew are more than happy to return throughout the week upon request. Boots uncomfortable after the first day? No problem. They’ll return, refit and exchange. Fancy switching to snowboarding? No worries. They’ll swap your kit. Decide you actually don’t like what you have and want to change back? Don’t worry, they’ll sort that too. Basically, if you have any problems or requests, simply call the team and they’ll be with you in no time.
Inspired by long-standing La Plagne veterans – Oxygène’s owner Bertrand and Chalet-Fitting Manager Mike, the new chalet-fitting service is designed to help tourists enjoy the resort and their time on the slopes to the fullest. Between them, they’ve kitted the whole chalet-fitting team with everything required to run this service as smoothly as possible. This includes new vans, a huge warehouse/workroom slap bang in the centre of the resort, plus more skis, boards and boots than you can shake a ski-pole at.
What’s even more impressive, is the energy with which they’re approaching this new project. Mike talks about his new team and the service they provide with boundless enthusiasm and pride, repeatedly referring to their extensive experience and knowledge as well as the quality of the equipment they fit.
Mike’s ethos is clear; to provide the best service possible with the customer’s convenience right at the forefront. In-keeping with this mantra, his ski technicians are trained thoroughly on every aspect from the Oxygène portfolio so that even while fitting your equipment they can advise you on all lessons, après activities and even book you onto any extras you’d like to try while in resort.
WATCH THIS SPACE
It seems that Mike plans to be spending this season almost constantly on the move, driving the vans and the team out-and-about to any customer at any accommodation – at the time that suits them. What’s more, he has absolutely no problem with people booking last minute, changing plans, arriving early or calling late. He is buzzing with excitement over this new Oxygène venture and is already looking to the future to a time where he can reach not only the central resort villages but Montchavin and Montalbert as well. Watch this space folks; this chalet-fitting team is going places.
In the meantime, we hope to see you out in La Plagne this winter and taking full-advantage of this excellent new service as well as the great ski area La Plagne has to offer. Take the strain off arrival day, chill out in your chalet, have your boots fitted as you enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Chat to the team and pump them for information about the resort and the snow conditions, and don’t be afraid to put in a call to them as early, late or often as you like through your week. Let’s put Mike and his guys to the test and see if they’re really as good as they say they are.
