Flora and Mike Ski the Three Valleys

For early season snow and bluebird skies most people wouldn’t dream of mentioning Meribel. At 1400 metres, it doesn't have the makings for good early conditions. But on our recent trip here, we were pleasantly surprised.

Flora and I had the pleasure of staying in the beautiful chalet Phoebe in Meribel in early December. The chalet was absolutely fantastic and we had to be dragged (literally in some cases!) out of the front door when it was time to leave.

What is Alpine Skiing?

Skiing is dated back to pre-historic times. It is a part of the history of Sami and Nordic people in which skiing was a part of their military manoeuvres, hunting and used as practical means of transportation. Since then skiing has become a professional and recreational sport that takes place all around the world. There are several variations of skiing that include freestyle, dry slope, adaptive, kite skiing, Para skiing and alpine skiing. Skiing has become the most popular sport among all the sports that are a part of the Winter Olympics.

The Great Interactive Resorts Pizza Hustle

At Interactive Resorts, we're not just focused on last minute ski holidays and catered ski chalets. We also love pizza, especially down in our IT department (AKA the dungeon). Recently myself and Phil were given the job of dealing with/haggling with/hustling some recruitment companies to get some candidates. Everyone likes a good hustle- especially a London recruitment company. <--break- />

Club Med - All Inclusive Ski Holidays have never been so good!

As far as business models go for ski companies, you have to go an awfully long way to beat the example set by Club Med, as I found out in Les Arcs last week. I received an invitation to stay for 4 nights in the 4 star Hotel Club Med Peisey Vallandry to see what all the fuss is about, and I have nothing but good things to say! <--break- />We flew out from Heathrow Terminal 1 with Swissair and the transfer coach whisked us to resort.

A 5 Star Holiday in Val d'Isere

Mention early season skiing and a few resorts always spring to mind. For the best early season snow record, some of the best chalets and service in the Alps and a generally superb time, Val d'Isere is close to unbeatable. Nick and I had the pleasure of staying a few nights last week in Chalet Chablis, one of the Bellevarde Lodges in Val d'Isere.

It wasn't your typical ski break, as we only actually spent two nights in our sumptuous surroundings. Sadly, trips out to view chalets are fun but all too often short-lived.

An Early Season Ski Weekend in St Anton

St Anton – not the highest resort in the Alps and thus not the natural choice for a pre-season ski weekend away, right? Wrong. I had the pleasure of visiting St Anton on 26th November this winter for a 3 day weekend and was greeted with fresh powder and an opening weekend of skiing to rival the highest French resorts like Tignes and Val Thorens! Although the legendary Krazy Kangaruh and Mooserwirt bars weren't in full flow yet, there were plenty of opening weekend parties going on in town to keep us well stocked up on Gluhwein for the weekend!
