This year will be the 19th year we have been arranging our end of season ski trip. This winter’s trip will be the best ever. We have places for just 300, less than we wanted and because of the popularity of our end of season ski trip, we know it will sell out quickly. So please reserve your place quickly to avoid disappointment.
We always want our end of season ski trip to deliver exceptional value for money and this winter is no exception as included in the price is a 4-day ski pass, all lunches which are 3 course plus cheese with unlimited wine, which we think will save you around €60 per day. Also included is 4-day ski instruction or for advanced skier’s a guide who if conditions allow will guide you to some of the best off-piste skiing in the area. The ski guiding alone is worth about €120 per day if booked independently. With Club Med the bar is free too, so don’t worry about buying a round of cocktails, only you will know how much you normally spend on alcohol on your ski trip!
We have included the out bound flight from London Gatwick and return transfers between the airport and hotel, the homeward flight will be at your own expense and we will ensure our transfer coaches arrives at times to ensure that you can book a low cost flight home with either BA, Easyjet or Swiss air.
Club Med’s Val Thorens hotel, ‘Sensations’ was our ski hotel of the year when it first opened in 2015. It is Club Med’s flag ship ski hotel and one that we know you will enjoy. It’s a ski in ski out hotel where you put your ski’s on outside the boot room and go! As always with Club Med the food is exceptional and this is particularly the case at Sensations with menu’s created by the Three Michelin starred executive chef Edouard Loubet. You can expect a real treat at meal times. As well as the main restaurant with its huge choice of dishes you can book a table in the speciality Al a carte restaurant to sample of the local Savoyard dishes which is also included in the cost. There is even a climbing wall for people with a good head for heights.
Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe at 2300m and part of the biggest ski area in the world, the ‘Three Valleys’, which includes big ski names such as Courchevel and Meribel. If you choose to join our classes or ski with an ESF guide you will have a real adventure taking in the best runs the area has to offer. Of course if you prefer, you can ski with your own group in what is regarded by many to be the best ski area in the world.
We always have lots of single people on our end of season ski trip and to avoid single room charges we can buddy up single people of the same sex to share a twin room, but if you prefer a room to yourself there’s an additional charge of £160 for a club room for sole use.
We know many of you prefer to bring your own ski’s we have negotiated a charge of just £15 on the out bound flight for ski carriage, but remember the low cost airlines charge a ski carriage fee to bring them home.
Club Med offer very good in house equipment and we have negotiated some special rates for members of our group with ski and boots starting at £59 for their sports range, £69 for their performance ski and boot package just £79 for their prestige package. Helmets are available to rent for £10.
Our end of season ski trips is always exceptional value for money and we know some of you like to stay for the full week, so we have negotiated a very special rate if you want to stay for 7 nights. Booking this directly with Club Med would cost you £1052pp without any travel included, but with Ski Line you can upgrade from 4 nights to 7 nights for an additional supplement of just £390 which will include the out bound flight and return transfers. You will again need to book your own return flight home.
The price includes Club Meds Club rooms which are very comfortable, nearly 90% of the Club rooms have a balcony with views over the slopes. However, we cannot guarantee all our rooms will have a balcony nor can you request one. If you want to make your stay extra special, we have arranged a special rate for a Deluxe room of an additional supplement of £200 per person.
A deposit of £80 secures your place with the balance due 12 weeks prior to departure. Simply call Sarah on 020 8466 3453 to book your place.
