1. Stress Free

Booking a holiday can be stressful especially when you are the group organiser.  So the first thing you will notice about a luxury ski holiday is that pretty much everything is done for you by your tour operator or chalet contact.  They will co-ordinate everyone’s requirements while in resort – including ski passes, lessons, equipment hire and childcare,  so you can relax and simply look forward to a great holiday.



2. Private transfers

Travelling can be quite exhausting, particularly if you have children with you and / or lots of luggage and ski equipment.  Queuing at a car hire desk has almost pushed our family over the edge on past holidays!  What a luxury to be met at airport arrivals by your professional driver, and driven directly to your holiday accommodation with no fuss and no hassle.



3. Champagne reception

Once you arrive at your luxury ski chalet you will receive a warm welcome from the chalet staff and be invited to a glass of champagne and some yummy nibbles.  It’s the perfect way to start a great ski holiday.

4.  Sitting in front of a log fire

It’s snowing outside, your ski resort is twinkling in the moon light, the kids are in bed excited about their first day skiing tomorrow and you’re relaxing on a deep comfy sofa in front of the open log fire chatting with your friends… heaven!



5.  Watching your children learn to ski

Ski holidays make great family holidays – the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with the kids and give your little ones a chance to learn something new and exciting.  A luxury ski holiday provides access to the best ski schools and private instructors to ensure your children learn in the best environment possible, and there is nothing more enjoyable than watching your children have fun and master a new skill… well apart from when they start to ski faster than you!

6. Afternoon Tea

A luxury ski holiday should always include afternoon tea – a delicious home made cake after skiing with a steaming cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate or mulled wine.   It’s generally a quiet time in the chalet, so also ideal for reading a book, having a long bath or sneaking in 40 winks before the evening’s events!



7.  Concierge service

We think local knowledge makes the difference between a good holiday and a great holiday.  After all, there is nothing worse than being stuck with the crowds or having a miserable lunch.  A luxury ski holiday should offer a concierge service to give you the best advice about the slopes, the mountain restaurants & the après ski, or to arrange massages, childcare or day trips.



8.  Dinner with friends

One of the best things about a luxury ski holiday is sitting around a dinner table with friends.  Enjoying delicious meals lovingly prepared by a professional chef is one thing, but there’s also something magical about that time after dinner – when the staff have cleared up and clocked off for the night and you and your friends are enjoying another bottle of red and chatting about your day on the slopes…good times, with good friends!



9.  Skiing

Seems obvious (!) but the best think about a luxury ski holiday is getting as much time on the slopes as you want.  Because everything is done for you – driving, cooking, cleaning, and childcare – you don’t need to worry about a thing, apart from making the very most of your ski time.

10.  Coming back!

A luxury ski holiday should be so good you want to return year after year.  There’s a lot to be said for returning to somewhere you know you’ll be really looked after – so as your week of luxury skiing comes to an end just cast your mind to the following season, grab an early booking deal from your chalet hosts… and just hope you can keep up with your children when you hit the slopes next year. :)
