Discounted equipment hire, lift passes and lessons

Let MMC take the hassle out of what is ordinarily a time consuming part at the beginning of your holiday. By pre-arranging all of your hire equipment (ski, boots, poles, snow boards), and ski passes we can speed up all the paperwork, so that we can then just shuttle you down quickly to the hire shop and back again once you arrive in Châtel (to collect them), and we’ll have your ski passes sorted out and on your dinner table.

Please note we will need passport size pictures of each person who needs a ski pass for 8 days or longer, which needs to be given to us as soon as you arrive.
