Ski safety - stay safe on the slopes

Mon January 16, 2023

Stay Safe on the Slopes: Ski Safety Considerations

One of the first things that any good instructor will stress early in lessons is the importance of basic ski safety when on the mountain. Safety is a key concern when taking your family on a ski holiday, but it goes far beyond simply wearing a helmet. Below you’ll find a rundown of core ski safety advice that should be kept in mind whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, because like all the best adventures, skiing also has its fair share of risk.

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.

A cake fit for the Queen

A cake recipe fit for the Queen

Skiers out there will appreciate how special the first bite of a delicious, well earned, afternoon tea cake, cookie or biscuit tastes after a few cheeky après vin chauds. Which is why here at VIP SKI towers we take our afternoon tea and desserts very seriously indeed.

No flights

Sat May 08, 2021

No Flights?

Sadly our charter days are over.

We do not include flights as part of our holiday arrangements anymore because fewer of our guests wish to fit in with our rigid charter flight times and fixed departure airport, choosing rather to make alternative arrangements with their own favourite airline or regional airport. We understand that the plethora of low-cost airlines and regional departures made this inevitable at some stage or another (albeit sooner than we expected to be honest) and this means that charter flying for a small business like ours is no longer commercially viable unfortunately.

No Austria, Alpe d’Huez or Méribel ?

Tue May 04, 2021

Temporarily withdrawn from resorts

We are desperately disappointed to temporarily withdraw from Austria, Alpe d’Huez and Méribel. One of the hardest decisions that we have had to make over the last 18 months, of which there have been many.

Regrettably, the toxic mix and uncertainty surrounding Covid and Brexit travel restrictions in the short term, together with the lack of government guidance with regard to employment regulations for UK nationals since our departure from Europe, require that we reduce our total programme size so that we can responsibly manage all eventualities without in anyway compromising our personal commitment to every guest who chooses to travel with us.
