Why Use Us?
Our unique chalet finding tool allows you to request offers from top independent ski chalet operators and apartment providers in the best ski resorts in Europe.
Our customers tell us it’s the quickest and easiest way to sort their ski chalet holidays! It uncovers unique offers, chalets you would never find, and is ideal for groups and last minute ski holidays.
Wouldn’t it be great if instead of searching for hours for your ski chalet holiday and sending dozens of enquiries, you could just send out one enquiry and have ski chalets make you tailored offers?
Easy for groups
Even better, imagine all those ski holiday offers went onto a private page for your group (aka a TripWall), so you could all compare them, ask questions to the chalet operators themselves and then book direct when you are happy - no more confusing email threads.
Hundreds of independent chalet companies
Nearly all the catered chalet operators in each resort are right here waiting for your enquiry, so you don’t need to look anywhere else. We’ve uncovered hundreds of unique chalet options you would struggle to find otherwise, so you can compare them alongside all the most respected independent chalet operators you may have already heard of.
Great for last minute deals
As well as big groups, it works great for small groups and singles too, and especially for finding space in ski chalets at the last minute, which can be a nightmare! Precisely because chalets can match their spaces to your requirements, you may get offered unique deals you would never have seen, even on their website.
Total privacy protection
Oh, and of course we never share your contact details with any chalet companies until you are ready to book a holiday with one of them, so your privacy is totally safe from the start.
It should all be incredibly easy, but if you need our help at anytime or just want to chat about the snow, we will be right here waiting!
We have gathered hundreds of independent ski chalet companies under one roof. Some are highly respected companies you may have heard of before, whilst many of the chalets you will hear from are locally owner run. All are specialists, all are independent, and all are ski mad.
This means that the person who you chatted with while making your booking may well be the one to pick you up from the airport and will be in contact throughout your stay to make sure you are completely happy with their service. You can often expect trained chefs, and a great quality of food and wine.
They are skiers and snowboarders too, and love to share their tips on the best places to go and where to find that powder stash. How different is that ski chalet holiday from the large chalet companies who hire young seasonal staff to just cook and clean?!
Catered v Self Catered?
The home from home comforts of a catered chalet holiday are hard to beat – just turn up with your friends, ski all day, come back to tea and cakes, and forget any stress over whose turn it is to cook and wash up!
Most catered chalets provide 6 x 4-course dinners a week with unlimited wine as well as hot breakfasts, and tea and cakes when you get back from the slopes. Ski chalet holidays remove the need to even think for yourself, making it a truly relaxing way to ski. They can usually organise airport transfers, equipment hire, lift passes as well as the chalet experience. If your chalet is not in the centre of town many companies will provide transport to the lifts and a free ski guiding service if you are new to the resort.
If there are young children in the group the chalet host can often organise a nursery for them, and they will often be fed before the adults to allow you to have your dinner in peace.
Self Catered Chalets
If you don’t mind a bit of cooking, or want to eat out more, self catered chalets meanwhile give you ultimate flexibility, independence and can be the cheapest way to go on a ski holiday.
Self catered chalets range from small apartments in larger buildings through to large standalone luxury properties big enough for 15-20 people or more.
Some self catered chalet providers can arrange a flexible home chef to cook in for you a few nights a week – the perfect blend of catered and self catered!
Some operators can offer you a managed service, taking care of your travel to and from resort, end of stay cleaning, lift passes and other extras, though generally you will need to be prepared to be more self sufficient than a catered chalet and have your own transport, or use local buses.
Where to ski?
Where will you ski next? We run our chalet finding service in many of the top ski resorts in Europe, and are adding more all the time. You can read our guides to ski resorts in France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy to decide which is ideal for you.
Where to ski or board is always a hard question, and really comes down to personal choice. Different ski resorts cater for different tastes and budgets, and different terrain will of course appeal to different types of skier or snowboarder.
Be aware that not all resorts are suitable for beginners. Equally, expert skiers will want to pick and choose too. The atmosphere and architecture of a resort can make a real difference too – do you want a quaint alpine village or the convenience of a purpose built resort? Families meanwhile will of course prefer different resorts to groups out to ski hard, party hard. It is well worth reading up on different resorts before you choose where you want to go.
When to ski?
When to ski is a bit of a gamble, as any time between December and April could bring fantastic snow conditions in Europe and Japan. The season tends to be slightly longer in North America and Canada – typically stretching from November to May.
As a general rule in Europe, Jan, Feb and March are the months you can be most sure of great conditions, with March and April being generally warmer and sunnier, though with a good snow base by then, and still a great chance of fresh snow. For powder hunters we suggest you wait until the last minute and follow the snow forecasts.
For those of you who like the idea of quiet slopes and are not restricted by school holiday timetables we highly recommend avoiding Christmas, New Year, February Half Term and Easter. Skiing anywhere in mid January or mid March and you will be delighted with how quiet it is.
Everyone always forgets something, so why not use this handy kit list to make this ski holiday an exception?
In the chalet
Lounge pants/pyjamas (nothing better after a day on the mountains than lounge pants, glass of wine and a fire).
Clothes for the evening (we won’t dictate fashion sense to you, unless you really want us too!). A coat other than your ski jacket might be a good idea.
Don’t forget socks, underwear and maybe some slippers!
On the slopes
Salopets + Jacket (no color clashes please)
Gloves (and inner gloves are an amazing addition)
Fleece or warm mid layer
Don’t forget skis, poles and boots too!
