We employ over 100 staff in our winter and summer holiday programmes and prospects for career growth through the Alpine Elements Academy helps us create a highly motivated team of mountain-mad staff to run our chalets and hotels.

Our ski weekends were established in 2007 so we know a thing or two about what makes a great short-ski break! We know that it takes a dedicated resort team, chalet and infrastructure - because weekend skiers like to pack a lot and time is precious.
We have taken the ‘weekly ski holiday’ concept and turned it on its head so you are able to utilise off-peak flying (during the week) to provide fantastic value-for-money. Finding short break ski accommodation in good ski resorts is hard at the best of times, so we have done the work for you!
A Big Company with a Small Company Approach
Alpine Elements and iGO SKI is the UK’s largest independent operator of exclusive catered ski chalets and hotels. Properties run exclusively by us, for our clients. We’re not an ‘agent’ selling other people’s holidays, so everything we do is run by us, by a team of brilliant staff with mountain air in their blood.
