Ski Extras

You will need a few Extras for your ski or board holiday, but don’t wait until arrival in resort, instead buy before you go at our fixed prices in pounds and you can potentially save yourself quite a bit of money!

Pre-booking not only helps you budget and fix a price before you go, but it also ensures you don’t have to wait in long lift pass queues or traipse around resort looking for the best deal for ski hire. And remember if you can find a better price for your skis and board hire elsewhere, we will not only price-match but beat it hands down!

How to book:

All our Extras can be booked on-line or over the phone with our sales team, so don’t forget to add them on. If you’re a family or group booker and uncertain about the best deals available for you - then just call us to work out what the best deals are.

Don't forget your:

Ski & Board Lessons

Everyone can benefit from some ski or board lessons and our 5-day programme of beginner to expert lessons with one day 'free skiing' is a trusted formula we have been using for the last 20 years.

We carefully select our schools and make sure they provide great service and English speaking instructors with a range of lessons to cater for all abilities. 

Booking and availability:

To help assure availability then we always recommend pre-booking lessons as soon as possible, especially in peak periods.

  • Pre book our 5-day lesson packages. Don’t leave it to resort!
  • Lessons are very useful for everyone, not just the beginners!
  • We use ‘tried and tested’ schools, so we can make sure they perform well.
  • English speaking instructors and all abilities covered.
  • For our lessons, we know where our ski school meeting points are, so we can help you get orientated more quickly and ensure you get to your lesson on time.

Ski and Board Hire

Unless you own your own skis or boards, then you’re going to need to rent some!

Fortunately, the standard of rental skis is very good nowadays and we work with the best suppliers so your kit will be perfectly suited and set up for your skiing and you can go back and make changes as needed.

Our shops are also conveniently located to our properties, so you won’t waste time traipsing over resort looking for your shop. We can also help fast track our guests in busy periods, and use our influence to help you get sorted.

  • The cheapest available... from the best suppliers... conveniently located to our chalets
  • Often we get priority as a Tour Op, which can make fitting quicker
  • We can help you make changes to skis or boards throughout the week.
  • If you self-buy your own hire then you could be trudging to the other end of resort to get kit fitted or changed…

Lift passes

Lift passes are the one essential Extra to any ski holiday. So avoid a long walk or lift pass queue on arrival to collect your passes and pre-book through us before you leave. We deliver lift passes to you for your first day on the slopes. Pre-booking also ensures you fix a price in pounds.

An extra half day!

For some of our resorts, it is often possible to get an extra afternoon skiing on arrival day due to the early departure of our Sunday flights. For extra half day passes, we advise booking these on arrival with our reps, or directly with the lift office. Whether you choose to ski on arrival day or not, do still pre-book you standard 6 days (1 week) pass with us to save time and hassle in resort.

  • All pre-booked lift passes bought to you on your first day of skiing
  • Pre-booking also ensures you fix a price in pounds!
  • Extra half day passes (arrival day) bought on arrival in resort from our Reps


Lift Passes

On The Snow Packages

Whether you are a complete beginner or progressive skier or snowboarder there is always plenty to learn and our On The Snow Packs will save you £’s on buying a package of lessons, lift pass and ski or board hire.

Furthermore, we will be able to have it all ready for your arrival and save you the hassle of buying your lift pass from the lift office, trudging around looking for your ski school meeting points, or looking for your ski hire shop!

All these things can be made easier by pre-booking before departure and as soon as possible to guarantee lesson availability.

Ski & Board Package includes:
  • 5 half days beginner, intermediate or advanced lessons (2.5-3hrs/day).
  • 6 days Lift pass (Local or Full Area Pass)
  • 6 days Economy, Discovery or Performance skis with poles and with or without boots
  • Or 6 days Discovery snowboard hire with or without boots
  • Our Alpine Elements On the Snow service to help you get set up, started and oriented around resort.

Winter Sports Insurance

We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when travelling with Alpine Elements. It is therefore one of our terms and conditions of booking that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel with us.

Snow Assurance

At Alpine Elements we cannot guarantee snow, but it is our mission to endeavour to get all guests skiing, whatever the weather! All our resorts are chosen for their reliable snow records and high altitude status, and 90% of our resorts have the benefit of access to glaciers which ensure snow almost all year round.

How to Book Extras

We always advise pre-booking your Ski Extras with us so that we can take care of you in resort under our 'On the Snow' programme which will help us to endeavour to make things faster and more efficient for you on arrival in resort. More about our ‘On The Snow’ service

Online or over the phone

All our Ski Extras can be booked on-line with your initial holiday reservation or over the phone with our sales team, so don’t forget to add them on. If you’re a family or group booker and uncertain about the best deals available for you - then just call us to work out what the best deals are.

By email

If you have already booked you can add Extras via your Client Area or by sending an email to On adding Extras to your Client Area or as a request by email we will send you a confirmation invoice asking for payment later. Payments normally align with holiday balance due dates, see our payment dates below.

If you've already booked

Then simply go to your Client Area and add your ski extras to your booking under each passenger name. Do share the link to our client area and allow your party members to access and order their own ski hire. You will not have to pay anything at that stage, but all orders are taken


Cancellations & Charges to Extras

For Ski & Board hire & Lift pass:

We don’t charge for cancellations or amendments to lift passes or ski and board hire right up until two weeks prior to departure, so you can change your mind as often as you like! If you wish to completely cancel an order within two weeks prior to departure there is an admin fee of £30 per person, or per equipment pack/lift pass. However, if you wish to upgrade the order to a superior equipment pack or lift pass there will be no charge.

For Ski Lessons & Childcare

Quite a lot of work has to go into sourcing lessons and childcare for our clients and third party suppliers often ask for deposits. Therefore we may have to charge for cancellations and amendments made at any time, as well as our standard admin fee. 


All Ski Extras can be added to your booking without any deposit or pre-payment necessary. We will simply ask that you settle the balance with us by your final holiday balance due date which is normally 10 to 12 weeks before departure, or sooner for bookings made within this period. Some lessons and childcare providers may need a deposit on reservation. See our terms for credit/debit card fees and ways to pay.
