The Claude Penz Sports store has been running for more than 3 generations so it’s a genuine family business – it’s the longest-standing ski and snowboard hire store in Saint Gervais.

The store was first opened by Claude Penz - the current store manager’s grandfather. Claude Penz is a former member of the French ski team, who won the French championship several times and the Kandahar slalom race in 1947. He competed in the 1948 Winter Olympics which took place in St. Moritz, then became a trainer and technical director at the Saint Gervais Ecole de Ski (French ski school).

At present, keeping in line with tradition and with the vast experience acquired in this long family line of skiers is Sylvain, who currently manages the Claude Penz Sports store and who has also been a ski instructor since 1992. French and foreign customers alike appreciate the expert knowledge that Sylvain is only too happy to share.
