Welcome to our new Chalet Specialists

Fri October 05, 2018

After bidding farewell to Georgia, our Meribel resort specialist, in July, we knew we had big boots to fill. Luckily we’ve welcomed Katie Durack and Libby Hunting to the team just in time to gear up for winter 2018/19.

We chatted with both of them to find out what they love about skiing and managed to get some insider tips on their favourite spots in Meribel and Val d’Isere.

What Katie did next....

Katie worked for us in winter 2016/17 as a chalet host in Indiana Lodge, Meribel. In between whipping up mouth-watering afternoon teas and keeping the chalet spik-and-span she could be found on the slopes, skiing every day no matter the weather.

10 Years of Altitude Lodge

Tue September 25, 2018

This winter marks a very special anniversary for VIP SKI. Ten years ago we collected the keys to ‘Le Griffin’ and embarked on a mammoth renovation project to build and create the now hugely popular Altitude Lodge.

We’ve delved into the archives and dug out some remarkable photos of the renovation process.

From this...to this!

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.
