Ski and Snowboarding Holidays
Relax and let Travel Empire's ski experts find the right holiday for you! If you are a complete beginner, an intermediate or expert skier or snowboarder we will suggest the resort to suit you. People often like to ski in groups and in that case we will recommend resorts that reflect a wider cross section of runs if your group is comprised of mixed abilities. We also take into consideration lively or otherwise apres-ski. You maybe the sort of skier that gets the first chairlift up in the morning and return to your hotel for an evening meal and early to bed or a more sociable type that likes to party until the early hours, again either way we will recommend resorts that suit you.
Package tour or independant travel?
Until quite recently the only way to enjoy your wintersports holiday was to travel with one of the major ski tour operators, these operators still provide a cost effective holiday, in resort reps, coach transfers to your hotel, lift passes as well as providing organised excursions. However you will find that you will be restricted to one or two weeks holidays with travel usually only available on a Saturday or Sunday. Over recent years the 'low cost' airlines have found their way to the winter sports gateway airports such as Geneva, Barcelona and Salzburg this has provided an opportunity for time poor skiers and Snowborders who can now travel midweek for shorter or longer durations (sometimes at bargain prices), it is also possible for us to add accommodation, transfers and even lift passes before you travel.
