About Us

The first Chalet Ski Shop opened in 1973 when the sport of skiing was more of a hobby than a business. In those early years our shop was a fraternity of friends and customers who skied together and worked together and shared the same passion for winter sports. By 1983 our Company had grown into a full-time year-round business and moved to Madison Wisconsin with an expanded store that included home furnishings along with ski and winter sports merchandise. 

In 1996 we expanded again and opened our large flagship store on Verona Road where we are currently located. In 2002 we opened a commercial division called Meridian Furniture Company to better serve the furniture needs of hotels, clubs, restaurants, and health care facilities. In 2007 we built a large warehouse and distribution facility in Belleville Wisconsin where we stock a huge inventory of merchandise for quick local delivery and express shipping to our commercial clients throughout the Midwest. 

After 45 years we are proud to be one of the largest family owned Ski and Patio specialty stores in the Midwest and we’ve received national recognition in both industries. Chalet was awarded “Ski Retailer of the Year” by SIA and nominated for several Apollo awards in the Outdoor Furniture Industry.

We are committed to offering you the best selection of quality merchandise in all price ranges for summer and winter – both indoors and out. You’ll always find a complete line-up of the top brand names for skiing, winter sports and outdoor lifestyle. Our furniture department includes a unique blend of carefully crafted products for every room in your house – both inside and outside and everything in between. We shop the world markets to find new suppliers with cutting edge technology and exclusive designs only available at the Chalet Store in Madison.

We believe good service is a way of life at Chalet. Our professional staff of technicians and service people have over 40 years of combined experience in ski tuning and custom boot fitting as well as furniture repair, delivery and installation. Your complete satisfaction is guaranteed.

Friendly and knowledgeable salespeople is the key to our success. Chalet sponsors on-going educational programs for all employees and our people are extensively trained on the latest gear and services. Most of the merchandise we sell are products we test and use ourselves. We also perform “house calls” and offer design assistance and room planning for any size project. Our huge selection, well trained staff and superior service allows you to shop with confidence.
