“A bottle of wine begs to be shared; I have never met I miserly wine lover.”

A catered chalet holiday is all about the food...but of course we understand that the wine on offer is equally important. Wine is a staple ingredient of VIP SKI holidays, be it enjoyed with your 3-course evening meal, quaffed at aprés-ski or sipped whilst bubbling away in the hot tub under the late afternoon sunshine. Three reds, three whites and a rosé are offered in all our chalets, with optional upgrades available too for special occasions or for those who prefer a particular grape.  Our chalet hosts all had the chance to sample all seven house wines and are on hand to pair specific bottles with each meal on the VIP SKI menu.

Now that Christmas is over...

...many of us have turned our attention to New Year’s resolutions. It could be tackling dry January, trying a vegetarian or vegan diet for a month or working on your fitness ahead of a busy year. If it’s fitness goals which you have in mind, then making them ski-specific is a great way to stay motivated as you get closer to your chalet holiday. There’s no better feeling than cruising down the slopes, safe in the knowledge that the work you’ve put in beforehand will prevent any niggling aches and pains from ruining your holiday fun.

 For some inspiration on how to condition your skiing muscles read on for the next in our series of ski exercises with Mark Zawadski of Peak Condition.

Today he’s demonstrating the Swiss Ball Horse Stance Balance Roll, which requires nothing more than an exercise ball and a keen sense of balance. Here’s what Mark had to say about it:

Merry Christmas from VIP SKI

Christmas greetings from the team at VIP SKI

Christmas marks the end of another year but the beginning of another season. Perhaps you've already returned from an early-season break, are settling down in your chalet to enjoy a Christmas ski holiday or have planned a trip in 2019 to look forwards to.

Wherever you find yourself this Christmas season, we wish health and happiness to all of our customers, friends and family.

We took a poll in the office and came up with our favourite skiing related cracker joke:

Why should you always invite a skiier to Christmas dinner?

Because they're great at carving!

Get Fit for Skiing - Episode 1

Wed December 12, 2018

Picture the scene...

...you’ve jumped out of bed on the first morning of your ski holiday and ripped open the curtains to dazzling blue skies and oodles of powder. You’re greeted by a smiling chalet host who loads your plate up with bacon, eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes to fuel an action-packed day blasting around the slopes, covering the mountain from top to bottom and squeezing in one last run as the lifts close. That evening you collapse, weary but exhilarated, into bed, ready to do it all again the next day until….

You open your eyes and ache in places you didn’t know could ache. There’s a mysterious cramping as you try to drag your leaden legs out of bed, resigned to a day of hobbling round the bunny slopes as the kids run rings around you.
