About us

Gravier Ski Shop is centrally located near the Morzine Tourist Office and close to the lifts that access both the Morzine-Les Gets sector (130m to the Pleney lift) and the Avoriaz-Portes du Soleil sector (350m to the Super Morzine lift).

The shop has been owned by Michel Gravier since 1986 and is well known for its quality of service. We are rated 5* on Trip Advisor and have been nominated for the Morzine Source Awards 'Favorite Customer Service' award for the past two years.

 

Michel has been a ski instructor, ski school director and ski instructor trainer across the world including Australia and France and is passionate that skiers and snowboards of all abilities need equipment that suits their level and is well maintained to help them realise their full potential on the slopes.

All staff speak good or native English and are extremely good skiers in a range of disciplines. They all know the Portes du Soleil well and can advise which areas will be the best to ski each day.

We have ample storage space in the shop so that you have the option to leave your equipment with us for the week to save you carrying your equipment around town and to ensure that it is warm and dry in the morning or even just for a couple of hours whilst you make the most of the town.

We are fully equipped with powerful boot dryers to make sure that your feet stay dry during your stay.

We have a range of essential accessories available to purchase including socks, goggles & sunglasses (Uvex, Bolle, Julbo), gloves (Hestra, Rossignol, Reusch) and sun care products (Belsun).

Technician & Deliveries 

  • Seasons at Gravier Ski Shop: This is  my first but I spent 3 seasons as a technician for another rental shop in Morzine

  • Specialist area: Snowboarding

  • What do you do in the summer?: I work in New Zealand for Cardrona Alpine Resort's on mountain Events Team (I live in winter all year round!)

  • What equipment do you use to expore the mountain? I have some Armada ARW96 skis which I use for all mountain/park skiing. If we get a good dump of pow then I've got some Armada VJJ to float around off piste or take into the back country for a tour. If it's an on-piste day, I love to take out some Volkl RaceTigers from the shop.

  • What's you're favorite place in the PDS? I do love a bit of park skiing (much to Michel's displeasure!) so Avoriaz's Chapelle Snowpark is a fun place. If I'm looking for a bit of peace and quiet, then Vallee de la Manche is beauiful for a ski tour, snowshoe or walk.
