Goodbye sunshine, hello snow

Fri September 07, 2018

The 2018 summer season has now sadly come to an end. Although we can’t contain our excitement for the winter ahead, now is the perfect time to reflect on a jam-packed summer. 

We’ve been catching up with some of our summer staff members and just had to share a few of their amazing photos. Whether mountain biking, hiking, parapenting, riding or even skiing (believe it when you see it) they’ve shown that the Alps are just as beautiful without snow.

Call your friends, we’re going to St Anton

Wed September 05, 2018

You asked for more chalets in Avoriaz and we delivered. You let us know how important hot tubs, pools and saunas are and we listened. You made it clear that modern, sleek design elevates a great holiday to an unforgettable one and we hired the best interior designers in the Alps. As far as we’re concerned, if we’re not moving forwards then we might as well be going backwards.

So when it was time to look for a new property in St Anton to sit alongside the established Haus Hockhar and Haus Gamskar we didn’t take the challenge lightly. The location, décor and special extras all had to be spot on and we’re confident that we’ve delivered with Chalet Cristal, new to our portfolio this season.

Back to Ski School

Fri August 31, 2018

We say ski school, you think groups of French children swarming around the lifts, falling over and generally causing havoc. Think again because ski schools have branched out massively and now offer a huge variety of classes to suit all levels of skiers. Even advanced skiers can benefit hugely from a pair of eyes on the ground to point out bad habits which you might have picked up over the years.

Here’s our run down of the most exciting classes to discover this season from our ski school partners in France and Austria.

Avoriaz Alpine Ski School – Ladies’ Backcountry Clinic

No boys allowed in this exclusive group, led by British Freeride coach Amy Marwick with the aim to introduce backcountry skiing (off-piste to you and I) in a friendly and welcoming environment. Amy will cover the basic backcountry skillset including choosing an appropriate line, lining up natural features and, of course, using avalanche safety kit effectively and efficiently.

The course is scheduled to run from 28 – 30 January. Look at Chalet Ossetra and Penthouse 1 for luxury accommodation.

What's new in snow-sports technology this season?

Wed August 15, 2018

Technology is never far from the forefront of our minds here at VIP SKI. When we think back to the company’s earliest days skis were little more than two planks of wood strapped to clunky plastic boots, and you’d be lucky to make it to the top of a painfully slow chairlift without suffering from frostbite in several appendages. Luckily, the ski industry has taken leaps and bounds forwards and is embracing technology in all its guises to make your holiday experience more enjoyable. We’ve compiled a rundown of the top exciting developments which are set to take the ski industry by storm (no pun intended) over the coming seasons.
