Who is ready for a ski holiday or mini-break?

Heading off on a mountainous adventure requires a little more thought than a simple holiday abroad. A few elements need to be considered prior to your arrival in your chosen resort, particular if you want to take advantage of the excellent offers you can find online. From ski hire & lift passes to tuition and boots, it’s up to you what you hire for your vacation. Whether you choose Soldeu ski holidays or the Italian Alps as your destination, these essentials are standardised and easy to comprehend.

Lift Passes

Pre-booking lift passes can often guarantee cheaper-than-resort prices, with many resort-specific deals available, such as 2 for 1 or buy one get half price offers.

Many resorts, including Soldeu ski holidays, offer free lift passes for infants, and during low season may also supply child lift passes for free. Keep an eye out for any of these offers to take advantage of them and save yourself some money.

Equipment Hire

Whether you need to hire skis, poles, boots, a snowboard or all of the above, you can be sure to receive high quality equipment that will be fitted by specialists to ensure they fit you like a glove.

Again, be aware of any relevant deals to help you get value for money. Two for one deals are popular, particularly across European resorts (although, doubtful during peak times like half terms).

It can be difficult to choose the perfect equipment for you – be sure you understand the difference between the various choices, such as ‘standard’ for beginners and ‘prestige’ which is ideal for advanced enthusiasts looking for a wider choice of kit.

You can also make use of ski and snowboard packs, which include everything you could need for your holiday on the slopes. They often work out cheaper, purchasing as a bundle, rather than as separates, and include lift passes, ski hire, boot hire and ski school.

Take a look at the ski hire & lift passes on offer in your chosen resort and look forward to the groomed pistes this snow season.
