Planning your ski holiday

Getting ready for your ski holiday is always exciting, but it can be overwhelming if you’ve never visited Chamonix before, or if it’s your first ski holiday. Our Resort Team are here every step of the way to make sure you’re 100% ready for your holiday, so that once you get here you can enjoy it to the maximum! So read on for our top tips on how to prepare everything you need for your Chamonix ski holiday.

1. Flights & Geneva airport transfers

After booking your accommodation, the next thing you’ll look at will probably be your flights, to benefit from early booking low prices. But don’t stop there, with your flights booked, tick another thing off your list and book your Geneva to Chamonix airport transfers as well. Head across to our Chamonix Resort Shop to place your booking, and we’ll take care of all the details, getting in touch again in the week before you arrive to confirm the final arrangements, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

2. Ski lessons

It’s crucial to think ahead about your ski lessons as they can book up early and you don’t want to miss out on the chance to perfect your technique. Don’t forget as well that the peak weeks over Christmas, New Year and February holidays are very busy, so booking ahead is essential, especially for ski school where class sizes are limited. Read our guide to booking lessons and then go to the Chamonix Resort Shop to place your order, so that the Resort Team can confirm your booking as soon as possible. We’ll then bring along all the information you need, such as meeting times and locations, on arrival.

3. Lift passes

Skip the queues and get on the slopes as soon as possible with our lift pass delivery service. Choose your winter ski pass and then order online on the Chamonix Resort Shop. The Resort Team will then collect the passes for you from the cash desks and we’ll bring them to your accommodation when we meet you on arrival – easy!

4. Ski hire

Benefit from our exclusive ski hire discounts for guests and pre-book your ski hire online with 15% discount. The Resort Team will place the order with our closest partner to your accommodation and bring your voucher on arrival so that all you need to do is go and collect your equipment when you arrive. If we don’t have a partner shop nearby, we’ll arrange for your kit to be delivered, at no extra charge!

If you prefer to wait and do this when you’re in Chamonix, then we’ll give you a voucher on arrival so you can still claim this great Chamonix All year discount!

5. Après ski & activities

Research all your après ski options in advance with our Bar guide, so you know all the hottest spots to hit, and also check out our evening adventures, such as a skidoo night and paret evening. There’s a whole host of other great winter activities to try, such as the ever-popular husky rides or a breath-taking parapente flight, so be sure to have a look at our activity guide before you arrive too, to make sure you don’t miss out. You can book all the activities in advance on our Chamonix Resort Shop.

6. Book & pay securely online

Everything mentioned above can be booked ahead of time so that you have everything organised before you even arrive in Chamonix!
