Spring Skiing in Banff

My spring ski holiday to Canada may not have been on the same scale as Holly’s Christmas trip, but it certainly makes me agree that everyone should go to Canada at least once in a lifetime. It is a different experience to skiing in Europe but an exciting one too!

The Interactive Resorts Ski Trip to Val Thorens

The build-up was big, top billing in the office for weeks before we were due to leave. Pre-departure was littered with nerve jangling worries over how we'd get there, and whether we'd even be able to. In the end, it all went relatively smoothly and we've been back in the office for a few days recovering from one of the best ski trips in recent memory. Our Val Thorens ski trip 2010 was a rip roaring success and this is the tale of how it all went down!

Skiing in Canada - The One and Only

Coming from NZ where our Christmas normally consists of shorts and sandals, BBQs and camping, sunshine and beaches, a white Christmas is something of a novelty. You can only imagine my delight at being told in early 2009 that the family Christmas was to be held in Canada

Family Skiing Holiday Part II - Useful Tips

Continuing on from Rupert's family ski holiday in Alpe d'Huez, we've put together a series of useful tips to help you make the most of yours.

Our Family Ski Holiday

This year, our family ski holiday consisted of a group of 9 adults and 7 children aged from 2 to 7 years old. The party contained three non-skiing adults (Grandma and Aunties!) who, between them, acted as ‘nannies’ - looking after the kids when they weren’t skiing and giving the chance for the skiing adults to occasionally enjoy some ‘kid-free’ runs. Our skiing abilities were mixed; the adults' ability ranged from beginners through to advanced, the younger members had either never skied or had up to 4 weeks' skiing under their belts.

Val Thorens 2010 - 4 days and counting

Here we are, another season has come and almost gone and this Saturday the Interactive Resorts crew are heading back to the mountains for one last week of skiing, sunshine, fun and games before summer. The last three years of the official company trip have all been to Val d'Isere but this year promises to be a complete change as we're heading to Europe's highest resort of Val Thorens!

A week skiing in Meribel

Booking my personal ski holiday this year was going to be a challenge; it was a mixed ability (complete beginner to expert), mixed sex (school mates and girlfriend!), group of people all on a budget and looking for plenty of evening entertainment. Meribel was chosen as the destination.

Chalets in Zermatt reviewed

Having spent a couple of years working in chalet holiday sales, I’ve had the good fortune to stay in some amazing chalets....the Bellevarde Lodges in Val D’Isere – ski in/out with hot tubs on the balcony, and the Taiga Lodge in Meribel with its cinema rooms being previous favourites.  Fabulous though these are, they don’t really come close to the accommodation I’ve just stayed in on a recent trip to Zermatt.

Skiing Chamonix on and off piste

I’ve just returned from an excellent stay at the Chalet Grands Montets in Chamonix.  Newly finished, this chalet has been completely rebuilt from a shell that dates back to the 1940s. Finished to a high standard, it offers a modern twist to the traditional chalet interior. There are five en-suite bedrooms, a large dining and living room, under floor heating, great views from the balcony plus the all important hot tub. Ideal for groups and large families looking for quality with an affordable price tag, this is great value for money!
