Sorenti brothers love snowboarding

Help us solve an office debate: Skiing or Snowboarding?

We are too often guilty of generically referring to ‘ski holidays’ when in fact our portfolio of chalets and hotels, across ten varying resorts, are just as suited to snowboarders as they are to skiers.

The majority of our London office team are skiers. However, our Sorenti brothers, Andy and Jonnie, are avid (and very talented) snowboarders. We asked them a few questions about their snowboarding holidays

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Fri November 22, 2019

Oh the weather outside is...delightful!

The snow is falling in abundance and it doesn’t look like it will come to an end any time soon. We’re fewer than 10 days away from opening the doors on Winter 2019/2020 and we couldn’t be more excited!

Here are some beautifully snowy photos captured in recent days. Surely it’s enough to tempt you, but the hardest decision...which resort will you choose?

Don’t miss out – Save £100 pp

Fri October 18, 2019

We don’t think an excuse is required, but here is one of many great reasons why you should book your next ski holiday now – our saver week discount is coming to an end! All of our holidays are discounted by £100 per person on every week in January and on 15th March week.

Though most of our January and March bookers return faithfully year on year on the same weeks, other, like-minded skiers are sometimes more hesitant.

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.

The return of January skiing (in April!)

Fri April 06, 2018

If you’re thinking that skiing in April is a lost cause, you couldn’t be further from the truth! I know we’re all fed up with the cold spell we’ve been experiencing here in the UK, but it’s done wonders for our ski resorts. Weather reports are comparable with those of January and even the lower resorts are still providing fantastic conditions.

Check out some of these snaps from the alps this week.
