We understand that many of you feel uncertain about how the Brexit may affect your travel plans. We are certainly encouraged by ABTA’s statement which reminds people that there are no current changes to the way we travel, nor are there likely to be for up to two years.
Whilst the Referendum dust settles, we have decide to keep our pre-Brexit prices on hold until the July 15th. But given the Sterling/Euro exchange rate these may well increase in mid-July. The security of our package holidays allow you to pay one price now which will help to protect yourself against the exchange rate. We also have some £1 lift pass offers which will do just that, whilst making you additional savings along the way!

Quote from ABTA:
The Prime Minister has stated that there will be no initial change in the way people travel. People due to travel this summer will see little changes to their holiday. Once the UK formally notifies its intention to leave we have up to two years for remaining Member States to offer the UK a deal for a future trading relationship and during this period holiday makers will see little change – Quote ABTA 24th June 2016

Val d’Isere is a must for anyone with a passion for skiing. The ski area is split into 3 different sections, Le Fornet, Le Solaise and Bellvardes, each with their own unique charms. Twinned with Tignes, the area of Espace Killy has a flawless snow record mainly due to its proximity to the Mediterranean and the subsequent low pressures that dump a regular helping of the white stuff onto the neighbouring Italian Alps. Here you will find plenty of choices for all abilities. If you just want to cruise round the resort at a leisurely pace dipping in and out of restaurants, there are lots of gentle runs with fantastic views towards Mont Blanc and Le Grande Motte glacier. If you are an expert skier or boarder then you are certainly in the right place. Off-piste is the star of the show here! Val D’Isere has invented a new type of piste called ‘Naturide’. These are black runs that are still regularly patrolled for avalanche risk but don’t get groomed.
Our Chalet Fjord is centrally located, on the main street of central Val d’Isere, just 5 mins walk from the slopes, and benefits from a sauna. The après-ski bars and cafes are a snowball's throw away (100-200 metres).

The bread is delivered daily for breakfast by the local boulangerie and our salads and herbs come fresh from the market. Main courses and desserts are elaborated and cooked to the highest standards.

The French Alps are renowned for some of the most challenging black runs and off-pistes available, where the steep gradients are certain to test the legs of even the most advanced skiers. Choosing the location of your next short ski break carefully can allow you to ski the best of the advanced runs in one weekend. Click here for some really good ideas & offers for your next ski weekend. We have listed some of the highest gradient slopes in the Alps; hopefully inspiring you to brave your next adventure: The Swiss Wall ‘The Swiss Wall’ is found in the Morzine-Avoriaz ski region and comes with the warning ‘For experts Only’ at the top. Those that aren’t put off by the sign might have second thoughts when they see the 50˚ angle of descent ahead of them! After the first few turns on the huge moguls at the top, the slope widens out for the remaining 200m. Conditions are difficult when it’s icy, so it’s best to attempt earlier in the day and after a fresh snowfall. Chamonix Chamonix is an extreme skiers playground, boasting the pick of the steep couloir runs and some high gradient glacier skiing. The Glacier Rond is a popular decent down the Northwest face of the Aguille du Midi with a slope of 45-50˚ for 800m of the trail. Alternatively, the Cosmiques Couloir is accessed from the same start location. In perfect conditions you can ski straight into the couloir, otherwise it requires three abseils before you can clip on your skis and descend the 45˚ gradient. Watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckv0mBTVHuo La Poubelle Couloir, or ‘The Dustbin,’ is renowned for its challenging descent. It requires skiers to brave a 30m abseil over rocks to access the snow, so it’s best attempted with some mountaineering experience and a guide. Once on the snow, the 40-45˚ gradient will put your legs to the test on the way down to the lower slopes of the Pas De Chevre. La Plagne The North face of the Bellecôte in the French resort of La Plagne is a testing 35˚ to 45˚ in places, making for an adrenaline pumping descent down the mountain. This is an off-piste run, so hiring a guide will allow you to explore the best areas of the mountain. Meribel Meribel is part of the huge Three Valleys Ski area and so there are plenty of steep gradients to challenge the advanced rider. The Couloir Tournier used to be an off-piste route, but the resort has removed some of the trickier obstacles and turned it into a black run with an initial gradient of 37˚.

Is it best to book a short break ski early in the year or wait and book last minute? We all ask ourselves this question when it comes to booking our ski trips for the winter. Ski weekends and midweek ski breaks prices are frequently related to flight prices. Flight prices tend to increase with time and can get very expensive on the last minute. For this reason it’s fair to say that early bookers will always benefit from lower prices. Plus, the room choice is usually better in the hotels and chalets if you reserve your room before the last minute rush. From full ensuite rooms to sunny balconies, booking early will secure those little extras which are so important to us! Ski weekends and midweek packages are currently on sale, so if you can plan your days skiing ahead, you can make great savings now. Offers such as £1 Lift Passes and 50% Ski hire are only available for Early Birds, so get your hands on those now! http://www.igoski.co.uk/cheap-ski-weekends-2015.html iGOSKi is packed with Early Booking offers and great ideas on ski weekends and midweek breaks: http://www.igoski.co.uk Our programme is full of great offers, meaning that you could now grab a short ski break for just £309!
