Welcome to the Ski Lab
Ski the best planks in Courchevel and Meribel with our new ski testing service.
Boutique Ski Testing:
Our quiver has been carefully selected and tested by Tom and Gav.
Our aim is to offer you the chance to test the best skis in resort so you can maximise your skiing.
When we look at rental options in resort, we don't find many high ends skis we'd like to ride.
The Ski Lab is here to change that.

For several years Tom made his own skis. He started from scratch and created all the tooling and presses needed to make Fork Tree Skis. Since then he's setup The boot Lab and specialises in boot-fitting.
The Fork Tree brand is still with us and you'll see beanies, tees and hoodies around resort. Now though Tom spends his time not he snow testing all the other manufacturers skis.
Call in and chat to him about skis, with his knowledge of construction and shape you'll be guaranteed the perfect ski for your holiday.
The Ski Lab
We setup The Boot Lab in resort 8 years ago, and began by specialising in fitted ski boots. Over time we've added to our services and setup the Ski Lab.
We provide the best range of test skis in the Three Valleys area and we have a dedicated, friendly and highly trained team that love sharing their knowledge of ski equipment.
Our knowledge combined with a fantastic range will ensure you have the perfect ski for the conditions.
Gavin setup The Boot Lab with Tom, and loves skiing and ski touring. Recently he's ski toured in Japan, Iceland and Norway.
His top three skis? In resort he skis the all-mountain Amplid Rockwell, on-piste the Volkl Racetiger and for touring the Amplid Facelift with G3 Ion bindings.
Top tip - "Test the Volkl Deacon this winter, with a 15m radius and top class construction this ski is built for the pistes of Courchevel and Meribel."
Ski Test Checklist
We are not offering a full rental service so you'll need your own boots.
If you haven't got any boots and you're considering buying a pair then please get in touch, we specialise in fitting ski boots.
