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 depart and make use of our discounted rates for pre-bookers.

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 to expert sales team to work out what package and offers are best for you. 

Ski and Board Hire

Unless you own your own skis or board, 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 level of skiing. You can also go back and make changes to your kit throughout your week if needed. 

Our shops are conveniently located close to our properties, so you won’t waste time traipsing over resort looking for your shop. We will also try to fast-track you through ski-hire fitting in busy periods where we can.

  • The cheapest available... from the best suppliers... conveniently located to our chalets.
  • We can often fast-track you and make fitting quicker
  • We can help you make changes to skis or boards during the week.

Lift passes

Lift passes are the one essential Extra to any ski holiday. So avoid a long walk to the lift office and a queue to collect your passes and pre-book through us before you leave. We deliver lift passes straight to you for your first day on the slopes, so you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast! 

Booking in advance helps you budget and fix a price in pounds. It can also save you money as many of our lift pass offers aren’t available in resort.

We will always provide early season deals on lift passes and give family prices, group discounts and OAP rates.

  • All pre-booked passes delivered to you at the breakfast table
  • No waiting in long lift pass queues
  • Pre booking helps you budget and fix a price in pounds
  • Family and group lift pass discounts available

Ski & Board Lessons

Everyone can benefit from some ski or board lessons and our five 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. 

  • Pre book your lessons. Don’t leave it to resort!
  • Lessons are useful for everyone, not just beginners.
  • Perfect your snow plough or learn to carve turn!
  • We use handpicked ‘tried & 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, by foot or Navette.

Ski & Board Bundles

If you want lessons, lift pass and equipment hire then we can package it all up in one bundle to save you some money! 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.

Our ‘On the Snow’ Service

If you pre-book your ski extras with us then our ‘On the Snow’ service will help you get started in resort. Alpine Elements Ski hosts and reps will be on hand from the moment you arrive (and on the transfer coach) to answer any questions you may have.

Once in resort our reps will collect pre-booked lift passes for you and deliver them to the breakfast table on your first morning. They will also endeavour to fast-track you as best they can through the ski shops and get you on the mountain as quickly and easily as they possibly can.

Our reps will also help with any equipment changes or lift pass problems and assist you with your ski and board lessons when using our specially selected suppliers. Our lessons-support and help in resort can be invaluable, because we know that it’s never as easy as it appears!

Ski & Board Carriage

If you have your own skis or board, we recommend pre-booking carriage as places are strictly limited on flights. It also works out cheaper to pre-book rather than wait until you get to the airport… Simply add the Extra when booking over the phone or online, or use your Client Area after booking.

Remember that dimensions and weight allowances of carriage can vary between airlines, so it's best to check with us before you book.

Winter Sports Insurance

Getting the right travel and medical insurance can be a tricky business, especially if you plan on enjoying sports like skiing, snowboarding, white water rafting, canyoning, mountain biking, windsurfing or sailing to name but a few!

We’ve partnered with Endsleigh to develop a policy that is specifically designed for our holidays and the activities we do. 

Taking out a policy at the time of booking your trip is also a really good idea to cover for any unforeseen holiday cancellation you have to make.

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 extras@alpineelements.co.uk. 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. 

Payments

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.
