A must visit shop
since 1981 !

It was during the 1981 winter season that François Trincaz — the first owner and former downhill skier in the French Ski Team’s World Cup group — opened his store devoted to winter sports in La Chapelle d’Abondance. The Trincaz family has been established in the village for generations, and has made many changes and modifications over the years in order to offer you a better welcome..

The shop was enlarged and completely transformed at the end of 2011, and since then it covers a surface area of over 150m2. On the same level, Trincaz Sports offers a rental area with all equipment for board sports in winter. On the other side there is the sales area with our technical or ready-to-wear clothing, après-skis, accessories, glasses, etc.

Ski hire always at the cutting edge

In 2015, after more than 30 years at the helm of the store, François Trincaz was looking for a trustworthy buyer. It was to Romain Perrier that he entrusted the keys to the store and a lifetime of work! Romain cut his teeth on the big Savoyard resorts, where he built up solid expertise in skiing, but he decided to settle in La Chapelle d’Abondance.

The resort and family shop offered him the opportunity to stay true to his values of proximity and openness to customers. Romain now welcomes you alongside a team of loyal colleagues, in a boutique that has retained its name and the quality of hospitality that made it famous
