Ski Extras

You will need a few Extras for your ski or board holiday, but do get organised early. If you buy before you depart then you can make use of our discounted prices. Pre-booking with us 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. Our choice of supplier is balanced between their quality of performance and the locational convenience of their shop to our chalets and hotels. 

Price match:  Price-Match-Guarantee-80px.jpg

Remember, if you can find a better price for your skis and snowboard hire elsewhere, we will not only price-match for a similar quality, but we’ll beat it on price…hands down!

Groups get free extras!

Groups of 6+ can get free lift passes and ski or board hire sets just for booking your ski packs in advance. View our current deals for groups of 6 or more.

How to book:

All Extras can be booked online with your 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 then do call our expert sales team to make use of our special deals and family prices.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 then there may be an admin fee of £30 per person, (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 extra 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 applying as our standard admin fee.


The Detail

Passport Photos Please bring a passport sized photo to resort. Some ski passes do not require this however lift ticket offices can be unreliable and are known for “changing their minds”! To be safe, be sure to bring one with you and you will not have to look around resort for a photo booth! 

Lift Pass Duration All passes are arranged to commence the day after arrival so that you can get the standard 6 days on the mountain during any one week and 13 days for two weeks. Should you wish to ski on the day of your arrival or departure then you must arrange the extra day or half day pass separately with our reps on arrival in resort. You can do this quite easily on arrival or the transfer coach with us.
