There are two main factors that influence ski performance:
- Edges – Good sharp edges provide grip affecting the turning response and feel of the skis.
- Base – Flat waxed bases glide across the snow more effectively and ease turning.
Our technician is fully qualified and his sole job is to maintain and service the skis in the skivo ski hire department ensuring that each week our guests are given skis in pristine condition, freshly waxed and with sharpened edges.

Chalet Sapin Bleu
What our guests say about us
Just wanted to say what a wonderful holiday we had recently. Chalet Sapin Bleu was a fabulous chalet (real luxury) and my friends and I are keen to return next season. I think what made it so good was all the friendly help from the very start, to getting there and getting skis etc sorted out. The chalet staff were great and the quality of the food was just amazing.
We had a great week with skivo – my eighth, but the first for my wife and her two friends, and also for the lovely group of people with whom we shared Chalet Roger. The entire skivo team looked after use fantastically well; nothing was too much trouble and Bogie’s cooking was superb. The lessons were really good and we had amazing weather and snow
Just wanted to email and thank you again for hosting us for such a wonderful week. Our whole party had the best time ever and we are all really struggling being back at work – especially as it is snowing heavily here! It is by far the best week of the year and we are very grateful to you and the whole skivo team for making it so memorable.
