On The Snow packages

The best time to come away with a niche operator is when you are learning to ski. Our dedicated staff and English speaking ski schools will ease you into skiing. Our specially selected ski resorts will also help provide a safe and low-pressure atmosphere to boost the learning curve from your first day. 

Indeed we have the majority of guests up and skiing on nursery slopes after only their first or second day - and linking simple snow plough turns after the third day. By the end of the week you will likely be exploring much of the local ski area on your own two feet and without the need for an instructor in tow, (or to tow, for that matter!)

Aside from our basic ski holidays, our 'On The Snow' packs include ski hire, ski lessons and a ski lift pass. We would recommend the ski resorts of Les Gets, Les Arcs, La Plagne, and Tignes for beginner skiers - however it has to be said that all of our ski resorts offer perfectly good learn to ski facilities.

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. Plus, we will have the equipment, passes and lessons ready and waiting for you on arrival so we can fast-track you to the slopes in double quick time!

  • 5 half days lessons (2-3hrs a day)
  • 6 days lift pass (local area pass)
  • 6 days ski/board + boot hire

La Plagne Extras

France

The snow sure nature of La Plagne is helped by the glacier skiing at Plagne Bellecôte, which extends up to 3250 metres. From here you will find an up to 2000m vertical drop, with some Black and Red slopes together with a seemingly endless supply of powder, and some of the longest descents in France. Our Chalets in La Plagne are mostly ski to door or very close to the slopes. They are also just a short, easy ski to the ski school meeting points - so convenient skiing is definitely something which you can look forward too.

Around La Plagne

La Plagne Centre (2000m) has fallen foul of the dreaded concrete touch but the huge amounts of snow seem to make it look fresh and pleasant all season round. As you would expect it is the largest of the Villages in La Plagne and is a Mecca for shops, bars and restaurants. 1800 has by and large escaped the planners concrete nightmares, with more of a chalet-style, and a warm and friendly atmosphere, with a handful of good bars and restaurants and some ski shops. Ski buses run up to Plagne centre until midnight, this all helps give skiers the perfect mix: lots of apres ski and very pleasant surroundings"

Les Arcs Extras

France

A long-term favourite amongst skiers and boarders, Les Arcs has increased further in popularity in recent years, due to the addition of the Vanoise Express cable car linking the ski area with neighbouring La Plagne to form the huge Paradiski Area. This is now the fourth largest ski area in Europe, consisting of seventeen alpine villages and over 460 km of pisted runs, ensuring that your ski holiday can be as adventurous (or as gentle) as you want!

Around Les Arcs

Les Arcs offers something for all, with more hedonistic night-life and apres ski venues up at the top end of Arcs 2000, whilst the new Arcs 1950 (accessed by carousel or a 10 min walk from our chalets) offers more chic and trendy restaurants. Les Arcs 2000 is a new ski village with pretty chalet-style buildings, convenience skiing and boarding and afriendly atmosphere. It has been designed for skiers and boarders in mind - rather than having sprouted up from a traditional alpine village, like so many awkward ski resorts. It therefore has everything that you will want, and very close to hand!

La Tania Courchevel Extras

France

La Tania offers expansive skiing for all levels. The resort is not only part of an immense ski area, but a very varied one which suits all levels.

Les Gets Extras

France

The Après-Ski and nightlife in Les Gets is surprisingly lively, and with about 16 good bars and a nightclub, the resort will keep going into the early hours. There is also a good café culture for the not-so-hedonistic among you and of course great restaurants too. For families there are plenty of off-snow activities. Les Gets is twinned with Morzine and offer fabulous value for money ski holidays in a very pretty chalet style resort. It is suitable for all levels and offers wide motorway style pistes making general skiing and progress very easy for intermediates and families on ski holidays. There are also some steeper more challenging runs and mogul fields up at Pointe de Nyon which happens to be one of the best descents in the whole Portes Du Soleil ski area. Les Gets is a very pretty resort and has an open air ice rink and beautiful snow-lined streets for families and shoppers who enjoy boutique style shopping.
View

Meribel Extras

France

The Après-ski in Meribel is one very big plus point for this resort! The large British presence in the resort, ensures some interesting and exciting nights can be had! The shear variety of bars and restaurants ensures that all tastes and appetites are catered for. O'Sullivans, formerly known as Dick's T Bar is known throughout the ski world, and a great place to start (or finish!) the night. Meribel also has two good nightclubs for the party people in your group! There are some quieter venues for those easy going nights where food and wine are more important than packed bars and loud music. The variety in Meribel is very good indeed, try Barometer for a not-so-heavy dose of après-ski and then wind your way up to the village square for more lively entertainment.

St Anton Extras

Austria

From exclusive areas such as the cruising paradises that are Lech and Zürs to the sunny aspect of Sonnekopf's powder runs, there is enough to challenge any level of skier. Intermediates and Advanced skiers are probably the happiest in St Anton, but the welcome for beginners is warm.
View

Tignes Extras

France

Tignes is famous for its excellent high altitude snow, largely due to the Grand Motte which plays host to the highest ski-able Glacier in France. It appeals to all abilities from beginner to expert powder skiers and is famous for its good quality snow and long season on the Grande Motte Glacier which has Summer skiing and snowboarding!

Tignes Le Lac

Our exclusive hotels and chalets in Tignes Le Lac enjoy prime slope-side or ski-to-door locations in this busier part of the resort, where there is an abundance of activites, shops and a vibrant nightlife centred around a pretty mountain lake.

Tignes Les Brevieres

Many of our chalets are in Les Brevieres, which is the original old town of Tignes and oozes alpine charm! It consists of lovingly restored and converted farmhouses and exclusive modern chalet developments. The real beauty of this village is in its' snow sure slopes and high altitude status, allowing guests to enjoy premium skiing of a Glacial 'super resort' without the ugliness that goes with it!
View

Morzine Extras

France

Morzine is a very pretty village with excellent facilities, numerous bars and cafes with boutique shopping to keep the non-skiers entertained. A nice day trip away from the ski fields is to Saint Jean D'aulps. This charming, almost cute, little resort is part of the same ski area and connected by the area's shuttle bus. The traditional nature of Morzine is very evident in its facilities, architecture and frendliness, resulting in a very pleasant village to stay in. Being quite a large summer destination as well as winter mountain resort there is lots to offer almost all year round and, it has the right amount of British prescence. Socially it is one of the livelier resorts in France, offering late night venues for partying or relaxed drinking and dining venues for the more sedate and family orientated skiers, as well as pizza and other take aways.
