The wonderful resort of Hetteyi

This small resort nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, the resort offers skiing so completely different to what most of us have experienced. Not only is the setting quite spectacular but the culture is very different. No Fondue, Genepy or Jaeger-bombs here. In fact, Après-ski in general is not as you may have experienced in the past, no alcohol whatsoever but this is made up by the fact that the delicious lamb kebabs (a local delicacy) are the only equivalant at the favourable exchange rate of only 7p a pop.

A week's Ski Holiday in Zermatt and Verbier

Having worked in the ski industry since 2004, I've seen a lot of resorts. In fact, until last week there were only 2 major resorts in our programme that I had never visited. I won't tell you which one I'm still to experience, but Zermatt has now been ticked off the to-do list. The only question I was asking myself is why has it taken me until the age of 30 to get out there?

Nightlife and skiing in St Anton

Badly cooked sausages, Euro Pop, lederhosen and dodgy dancing. Until early January this year, that was about the extent of my knowledge of Austria. I joined a few friends to hit the outstanding resort of St Anton, and my eyes were opened! Verbier last season was the first time I’d ever ridden outside France and I came back with mixed feelings on the place…St Anton is a different story.

BA cabin crew strike

We are extremely disappointed that Unite, the union that represents the majority of British Airways (BA) cabin crew, has announced that it intends to take strike action.

We are currently considering our response to this strike threat and what action we will need to take to minimise disruption. All our flights are operating normally at the moment.

We will be updating this page with further details as soon as it is available.

Skiing in Chamonix

Chamonix. The name itself rings all the superlatives; the highest lift, the longest off-piste run and the most awe inspiring views the Alps have to offer. A Mecca too for the extreme off-pisters...but is this all this resort can offer? I think not; I think this is a ‘must –ski’ place for most, for a good number of reasons. <--break- />

In one of their recent blog posts, Interactive Resorts has been recommended as a great site to visit when trying to find your perfect skiing holiday.

March Festivals in Meribel

Spring skiing has always had its advantages – the days are longer, the lifts are open later, the snow is still good and the temperatures are warm enough to sit outside at the end of the day enjoying a cold beer or a vin chaud! This season the resort of Meribel is providing extra incentives for skiing at this time of year by hosting not one, but two festival extravaganzas!

Industrial action on both sides of the Channel

We are aware that there is an air traffic control strike currently taking place in France which began yesterday (23rd February) and is scheduled to finish on Saturday 27th February.

Alpe d'Huez and Les 2 Alpes – Skiing Affordability Realised!

On hearing my first ski trip of the season would be to Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes my feelings were mixed. On the one hand it meant seeing two resorts and a whole range of chalets that I did not know much about, on the other hand, would they live up to the demanding standards set by the Three Valleys and Espace Killy regions?

Luxury ski holiday in St Anton

Working at the sales end of the ski industry, you always come across chalets that make you think “I wish I could stay there”, so when the opportunity arose for several friends and I to stay in one such chalet, we naturally grabbed it with both hands. Chalet Seeberger has long been on my hit list for several reasons:
