Our ski hosts in St Anton, Verbier and Zermatt will guide you to the best snow, the shortest queues and the coldest beer. Pocket the piste map, forget about where you’re going and revel in the pure, heart-pumping pleasure of getting there. It is with regret that we can no longer provide ski hosting service in our French resorts.
You will not be surprised to learn that we get an enormous number of applications for the position of ski host. We get to choose the very best people so that you get the very best out of your time on the slopes. Emily and Elle look for caring people who can ski a bit, not good skiers who might care. Their job is to look after you, not to show you how to ski.
Squeezing the best out of your time on the slopes. During one week’s skiing you don’t spend too many hours on the hill. In a new resort to waste a minute wondering where to go is an expensive luxury and unnecessary worry. Hosts will steer you gently to the quietest runs, quickest lifts, sunniest stops and biggest hot chocolate.
A little company on the slopes. Family in ski school or friends on the nursery slopes? Skiing on your own is rarely much fun. Join one of our hosting groups for a few hours and swap ski banter with some fellow guests in the resort.
With a group of friends skiing together, the skier perceived to be the most experienced usually gets landed with the job of guide for the week. Fun at times, often a diplomatic minefield. Sub-contracting the job to one of our hosts makes for a more relaxed and enjoyable time all round.
Unfortunately we are still unable to offer our ski guiding in French resorts this winter. However, in Austria and Switzerland ski hosting is still available.
