Slope off somewhere new
Whether you are a first time or seasoned skier, our team can advise on the best destination for you from our collection of exceptional ski resorts and luxury chalets across France, Austria and Switzerland. Organising ski tuition, lift passes and equipment hire is all part of the service we offer and many of our properties have ski-in ski-out access. There is also plenty of scope for the thrill-seeker skiers in the group - try out a snowmobile, Heli Skiing or tubing at your peril! After an exhilarating day on the slopes, let us take care of your evening arrangements, whether fine dining in your chalet or sampling the top local restaurants - après-ski never looked (or tasted) so good.
Norway’s dry snowfall ensures that the season starts in November and lasts until late April, meaning that you can enjoy the brilliant conditions all the way until Easter! Perfectly suited to beginner and intermediate skiers, as well as children, Geilo offers a great family holiday and advanced skiers can also enjoy ample off-piste powder fields, snow parks and testing black runs. With 38 slopes and 220km cross country trails, there’s also a well-equipped fun park for snowboard enthusiasts. Plus there’s plenty of Scandinavian activities off the slopes including dog sledding, ice climbing, snow scooter safaris and night skiing. Stay in the heart of Geilo village at Highland Lodge, where you are just 600m from the ski lifts!
For the world’s best powder snow, there’s no better option than heading to Hokkaido, the second largest island in Japan, where cold Siberian winds sweep in daily, dumping fresh snow for perfect skiing conditions. This deluxe two week trip includes five nights in Hokkaido’s largest and most popular ski resort, Niseko, and an all-mountain pass which covers the four main ski areas of Grand Hirafu, Hanazono, Higashiyama and Annapuri. From beginners to experts, there are a huge variety of pistes to choose from with additional snow experiences on offer including snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Combined with stays in the must-see cities of Tokyo, Kyoto and Sapporo and a first-class journey on the iconic Shinkansen bullet train, you will also see the snow monkeys of Yudanaka Onsen in the Japanese Alps, the country’s most famous animal residents!
