Tariffs

Because we aim to provide you with exactly what you want our rates are per day so that you can tailor make your holiday to fit in with your commitments. We do not arrange flights so that you are free to book the routes which best suit you and your party, but we will pick you up at any of the local airports for a small fee and return you to the airport at the end of your holiday. The minimum length of stay is 3 nights and we offer a discount for stays of 10 nights or more. We offer a 20% discount for children under 12 years of age. Our daily rate includes accommodation in a twin or double bedded room, a full continental breakfast, afternoon tea, pre-dinner drinks and nibbles at the bar and a full 5 course dinner with quality wine. It also includes all daily transport whist you are with us.

Packed lunches
Packed lunches are available throughout the year if pre-ordered the day before at a cost of £3 per person. In winter, when skiing in local resorts, it is often easier to make use of mountain restaurants and guests are free to choose this option if desired. In summer, when staying in mountain huts, packed lunches provided by the hut warden will invariably cost more.

Ski hire
We are happy to organize ski hire for you in advance of your arrival at one of our local ski hire shops and you can pay for this as usual at the end of your stay. It is often much cheaper to pre-hire your skis on-line before your holiday and we will be happy to advise you on this.

Lift passes
As we would be aiming for you to ski a variety of different resorts during a typical week’s holiday, we normally advise guests to purchase lift passes on a daily basis. Again, this can be done on-line before arrival at the resort, thus avoiding possible queues at the ticket office. Also, it means that we can take the weather and snow conditions into account before deciding where to ski on any particular day.

Guided skiing
You are free to explore all the resorts on your own. Alternatively you may want to avail yourself of our ski-guiding service which is available for up to 6 people of similar ability and will entail the purchase of a lift pass for the guide, normally Chris. Lunch should also normally be provided.

Snowshoeing
Full day in local area £20 per person (includes hire of equipment)
Full day further afield £30 per person (includes hire of equipment)

Walking/ Trekking
Day walks £20 per person; £90 for a group of five; £100 for a group of six
Multi day walks. POA depending on route/huts etc. Contact us and let us know what you want and we will put together your ideal trip. Obviously the cost of staying in mountain huts will be offset by not having to pay the full tariff for staying at our base.

Language tuition/coaching
Formal GCSE/AS/A Level lessons £25 per hour for up to 3 people
Conversational French
(inside and out walking) £15 per hour for 2 people.
