Resort

France

Alpe d’Huez

With an extensive ski area and a variety of terrain, this resort is great in good conditions as it has high, sunny slopes and some lovely rustic mountain restaurants. The village itself is not pretty but is fairly lively. Not for your high profile groups but a good all round resort.

Chamonix

Chamonix has plenty of atmosphere, nightlife and skiing for all abilities, combined with a short transfer which makes it a very popular corporate destination. The only negative is that transport is required to and from the slopes; however, the furthest is only 15 minutes away by road. We can use private coaches and local ski buses in the resort and our events here have always worked very well. We feel that this minor logistical issue is outweighed by the huge benefits that Chamonix has to offer.

It is a great resort for groups as it ticks all of the right boxes. Availability is hard to secure for large groups.

Meribel

Méribel is extremely popular with Brits and for many this is a reason not to visit. There is no doubt that this ski area suits all standards and provides more than enough terrain to exhaust the advanced skiers/boarders. You should not be deterred by the altitude of the resort as the ski area goes up to 2950m and the links to other Trois Vallées resorts are good. Méribel offers a vast amount of terrain, first class accommodation, beautiful scenery and plentiful bars therefore making it a very attractive resort to hold a corporate event

Tignes

Tignes, together with Val d’Isere make what is called the ‘Espace Killy’, one of the best ski areas in Europe. However it is not as pretty as its neighbour and does not have a village atmosphere as it is a purpose built resort. But it is a high resort and therefore snow is guaranteed, therefore making this a very popular destination.

Val d’Isere

Val d’Isere really offers a huge range of skiing from beginner slopes to the more challenging red and black runs, and some great off piste. It is very much a town but with its old style buildings it still keeps its traditional mountain feel. There are numerous shops and hotels that suit all budgets and the nightlife is very lively with a lot of English holidaymakers who. Val d’Isere has been a favourite with our clients for many years as it offers all the right elements for a successful ski weekend, it is unlikely that its popularity will wane.
