Depart directly from Manchester airport to these resorts...
Manchester to Val d'Isere
Val d'Isere is our original and most popular resort with returning VIP SKI customers. The skiing altitude extends to 3465m with over 300km of marked pistes, not to mention the world-renowned off-piste skiing for ultimate bragging rights. The town combines high-end dining with buzzy apres-ski, although most of the bars and restaurants are set around the main square, meaning that it's possible to find quieter haunts if you'd prefer.
Fly from Manchester to Grenoble with a transfer time of around 3hrs to Val d'Isere.
Manchester to Meribel
Meribel sits at the heart of the Three Valleys, one of the largest and best-connected ski areas in the world. The town is traditionally French with modern twists. VIP SKI chalets are all in the main Meribel village at 1750m, and there are five further satellite villages to explore before you've even started on Val Thorens and Courchevel on either side. The skiing suits intermediates with a few weeks' experience under their belt to make the most of the wide range of pistes.
Fly from Manchester to Grenoble with a transfer time of around 3hrs to Meribel.
Manchester to Courchevel
Courchevel has it all: long, flattering pistes, a brilliant snow-making system and hidden tree-lined runs for when the weather closes in. Guests seeking a luxurious retreat in this renowned corner of the Three Valleys will love the three VIP SKI chalets, all of which are ski in - ski out. Stepping from the chalet door onto the Bellecote piste first thing in the morning makes a Courchevel holiday seamless, and leaves plenty of time to explore the boutiques, bars and restaurants in Courchevel 1850.
Fly from Manchester to Grenoble with a transfer time of around 3hrs to Courchevel.
Manchester to Alpe d'Huez
Alpe d'Huez is renowned for being one of the sunniest resorts in the French Alps, averaging 300 clear days per year. Ideally suited to families due to the proximity of the VIP SKI chalets to the nursery slopes, Alpe d'Huez is a popular choice for beginners and intermediates. Most of the slopes are wide and flattering, but venture further afield to find challenges in the form of the Sarenne - Europe's longest black run - or the infamous Tunnel run.
Fly from Manchester to Grenoble with a transfer time to Alpe d'Huez of only 1hr15.
Manchester to Avoriaz
The most visually striking resort in our collection, Avoriaz is perched high above Morzine with links to the extensive Portes du Soleil ski area. All VIP SKI chalets in Avoriaz are piste-side with spectacular views over the town and down to Morzine. In 2019 we added four new chalets to our collection and will be building a further three over summer 2019.
Fly from Manchester to Geneva with a transfer time of around 1hr40 to Avoriaz.
Manchester to Morzine
Morzine sits in the same valley as Avoriaz but is positioned lower down on the valley floor. It’s the largest resort we operate in and has established itself as a major hub for skiers from all over the world. The resort is smart and functional with a convenient bus system and highly advanced lift network, making it simple to access the wide expanse of runs which extend all the way to Switzerland in the east.
Fly from Manchester to Geneva with a transfer time of around 1.5hrs to Morzine.
Manchester to La Plagne
The 5 Summit View chalets in La Plagne do exactly what they say in the tin – offer brilliant views of the surrounding peaks in a fantastic location close to lifts, restaurants and pubs. It’s possible to walk from the chalet to the ski rental shop without even stepping outside the building - how’s that for convenience? The skiing in the Paradiski region suits all abilities and La Plagne is one of our most popular family resorts. 3 of the chalets have extra bunk beds where children travel at half price.
