Even if you are an advanced skier or snowboarder, you should never assume you know enough about avalanches. Unless you’ve lived in the resort where you’re skiing, you won’t know which slopes are most likely to slide. Many fatal avalanche incidents involve guides from other ski resorts thinking they understand the snow.

Ski holidays are pretty much the best kind of holiday you could have (well, we like to think so). Not only do you get that adrenaline pumping, but sitting by a warm fire after an adventure filled day of hitting the slopes is a great feeling. Best of all, you don’t have to be an expert to get out there – expert ski instructors are available and packages range from group ones for 18-35’s to ones that include flights and accommodation.

Let us look after you in one of our catered chalets. Breakfast is buffet style and will include bread, jam, cereals, yoghurts, patisseries and a hot option each day. There is also the option to upgrade to a full cooked breakfast each day. An afternoon tea of freshly baked biscuits or cake will be waiting for you when you get back from the slopes and then you can relax until dinner time. Dinner is 3 courses including wine and finishing with coffee. Unlimited tea, coffee and squash throughout the day.

But what if your friends and/or family don’t want to come skiing with you? Could you go on a solo ski holiday instead?

Book extras beforehand: If you haven’t got equipment hire and ski passes included in your package, booking in advance online is usually much cheaper than buying in resort. If you go skiing regularly, buying some of your own gear is worth the one-off expense, especially if you find some decent second-hand equipment. We don’t do one size fits all, package holidays. Every ski experience we deliver is tailor-made to your needs and tastes, whether you’re planning a business conference, a family ski holiday, or a ski weekend with loved ones.

At the advanced level, it’s time to get serious about your equipment. If you don’t already have them, it’s time to invest in your own all-mountain skis, and high-quality Gore-Tex outer wear to keep you dry even on the sweatiest days. You should buy avalanche transceivers, poles and probes, too – and make sure all your skiing and snowboarding buddies have them as well. One other useful purchase at this stage is a book called ‘Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain’ by Bruce Tremper. Reading it is a great way to learn about how little you know.

If you are no longer a beginner and already know you love skiing, you should set yourself two objectives – the first is to build your technique and confidence as quickly as possible, and the second is to have as much fun as you can in one week of adrenaline-fuelled action. Here are some suggestions for intermediates on how to achieve both on a skiing or snowboarding holiday.

The sun’s rays are strong and reflect off the snow, so children need sunglasses for being out and about, as well as goggles for skiing (sunglasses can hurt under their helmet). And don’t forget sunglasses for babies too – ideally wraparound so that they can’t be pulled off and lost! So have a look through the pages below, search for a specific holiday using our search bar on the right or give our knowledgeable sales team a call for more information and get planning your perfect ski holiday with Skiworld. Our run from Monday to Monday or Thursday to Thursday, meaning you benefit from cheaper flights, quieter travel days and quieter slopes while everyone else is on the move!

every sno ski holiday packaged with flights is atol protected by the civil aviation authority all our suppliers are atol bonded, so your holiday money is safe. in addition to this, payments for your holiday are held in trust, by natwest bank and the travel trust, who insure every booking against supplier failure. Calls from UK landlines cost the standard rate, but calls from mobiles may be higher. Check with your network provider. Alpe d’Huez regularly appears on lists of best family resorts for both the skiing terrain and the other activities available.

The first time you put on a pair of ski boots you won’t believe how clumsy they are. But despite what people will tell you, they don’t actually need to be uncomfortable. The feel you should be looking for is that of a firm handshake, but not a bone-crunching one. Ski boots need to fit snugly, or else they won’t communicate the movements of your legs and feet to the skis, but if they’re too tight it quickly becomes counter-productive. You’ll be in too much agony to be able to concentrate on what you’re doing.
