What to pack for your next ski trip

Tue October 18, 2022

We often get asked about what to pack for a holiday in the mountains so we've put together a handy guide for you. 

Skiing is one of those sports where the clothing is just as important to get right as the equipment, and that’s due to the fact you’re out having fun in usually cold, often snowy conditions, with an ever-present potential for danger. On crowded slopes you will encounter people wearing an immense variety of ski attire, much of it stylish and clearly expensive, but it almost always conforms to the same patterns of layering, protection and accessories. From time to time you’ll see daredevils flying past in fancy dress, or just their underwear, but they tend to be the exception!

Buying clothes for skiing can be difficult when you’re not entirely sure what you need, and don’t want to purchase things you won’t use while forgetting something you definitely will require. So here’s what you’ll need to think about packing if you are off on a VIP ski holiday soon, and why each piece is necessary.

Grolsch, Peroni, Heineken or 1664 ?

We need to order the beer, please cast your vote ...

We have the exciting task of selecting a brewery for the bar at Bear Lodge next week. Of course, we're merrily conducting tasting tests right now, but as it is our guests who will be enjoying a cold beer after a day skiing we thought it only fair to put the vote out to our clients.

We can only select one brewery, so which beers would you like to see in our hotel bar this winter season?

Bear Resort namesakes

Wed September 15, 2021

Our brand new property in Arc 1950 ‘Les Oursons’ translates to ‘The Bears’ hence the name of Bear Lodge for the 30 bedroom hotel, and we couldn’t resist naming the 12 chalets after various fictional bear characters.

Here’s the lowdown on each of our 12 bears. How many do you recognise?

Baloo

Of course, everyone will recognise the wonderful Baloo from Jungle Book, the loyal friend of Mowgli and Bagheera. Baloo is a friendly, even-tempered character who lives a responsibility-free lifestyle. Like in the novel, Baloo is one of Mowgli's mentors and friends. Baloo is also patient and strong; his only apparent weakness is that he's ticklish.

Voices of Baloo include Phil Harris in the first film, John Goodman in the second film and Bill Murray in the CGI remake.

Suite Baloo sleeps 4-8 guests

The inside-out story of Bear Resort

Wed July 14, 2021

Designed by Andy, refined by our guests, built by Luigi

Luigi, who developed Bellevarde Lodge chalets in Val d’Isère for us, mentioned to Andy over an espresso that having since built the village of Arc 1950 for Intrawest, there was probably a little bit of land left over, could VIP SKI do anything with it ? The rest, as they say, is history.
