We know how valuable your skiing time is to you so that is why we can to pre-book your lift passes for you, to save you the time and hassle of doing it once in resort. And most importantly, no additional charge or hefty currency bank charges! The lift passes will be ready and waiting for you in your chalet/hotel/apartment, so you can hit the slopes immediately... You can book these at any time after you've booked. Call us on +44 (0)20 8877 8888.
The last thing you want to do at the start of your holiday is queue up in a crowded ski hire shop. We understand this and that is why we offer to pre-book all your equipment so that it is ready and waiting for you. You can either collect it from the shop yourself or some shops even offer a chalet fitting service, where all the equipment will be brought around to the chalet, thus avoiding the ski hire shop completely.

We have built relationships with the top ski schools in most ski resorts and we can book lessons for all ability levels, both private and group lessons.

You can book lessons at any time after you've booked. Call us on +44 (0)20 8877 8888 or fill in the Ski-School Request Form
