The French artisanal ski company MARCEL LIVET was created from the desire to think and craft differently. By putting our product on the pedestal, without cheaping out on the materials and methods of production, we truly return meaning back to the product.
Today, the mass industry has conquered over 99% of the alpine skiing market. Even the most luxury brands are now part of the global industrial manufacturing and relocation process. Traditional crafting methods and know-how have managed to survive industrialisation only in very few industries thanks to the dedication of a handful of devotees and heritage defenders.
MARCEL LIVET closely follows this philosophy. We wish to bring our French heritage to life, by offering exquisite premium quality skis. All in accordance with the traditions and ingenuity, striving for excellence in what we do.
As with any great blueprint where only the best components are used, we select only the best materials for our skis. Our ski core manufacturing practices ensure sustainable forest management and is FSC certified. The selection of wood is conducted in accordance to their degree of drying.
Depending on the wood type, our wooden veneers come either from French forests or from exotic wood forests.
All of our skis are made in our French workshops. From designing to finishing, all the stages of manufacturing a MARCEL LIVET ski are carried out by French craftsmen. That, in itself, is a guarantee that our skis are 100% French made. Tous nos skis sont réalisés dans nos ateliers en France. Du développement aux finitions, toutes les étapes de la fabrication d’un ski MARCEL LIVET sont réalisées par des artisans français. C’est la garantie d’un ski 100% made in France.
