How to successfully organise your ski holiday to France
For Australians, travelling to France to ski entails a long-haul flight and regardless of the class you fly, it is a tiring journey!
To get the most out of your ski holiday in France, a well-organised holiday will make your trip so much more enjoyable and cost-effective.
This starts with choosing the right flights and transport to get to your chosen resort, so that you start your holiday stress-free and as fresh as possible.
Why work with a travel professional to organise your ski holiday
By choosing to partner with a travel professional or tour operator, you will be working with experts who have the knowledge and ability to not only do all the hard work for you but to create a cost-effective, fully inclusive and seemless package.
They are also good at taking care of the little things that you may not have thought of – from having your onward transfers to the resorts co-ordinated, so you don’t have excessively long waits either at the airport or before you are able to access your accommodation on arrival in the resort, to ensuring that your accommodation is in a convenient location to access the ski slopes or the village centre. There is nothing worse than arriving in a resort and finding the location is not what you expected!
Other time savers to get you onto the slopes as quickly as possible are to have your lift tickets, ski school/guiding, and ski hire pre-booked. This can save endless time in trying to find the best place to hire or working out the best option for lift passes!
Also, with the possibility of Post-Covid-19 limits on the sale of lift passes, it is the best way of making sure you don’t arrive at your resort to find that the lift passes have all sold out!
Ski-chic has a quality ski clothing hire service (on a weekly basis only) in the French ski resorts. With a range of technical clothing and even helmets and goggles, you can save on carrying these items especially if you have further travels to do.
If you are staying in an apartment, you might want to take advantage of a shopping service so that the pantry is pre-stocked for your arrival. Alternatively, why not have your first dinner pre-booked?
If you plan on taking ski lessons with an English-speaking professional from the accredited ski schools, it is best to pre-book to be assured of a spot, especially during European school holiday periods.
If group lessons are not your thing, why not pre-book a local private guide for you or your group, for a first-day mountain orientation. It is the best way to get to know your way around the mountain in the current snow conditions, as well as finding the best places to eat on the mountain!
