We believe these packages are brilliant value for money, here are 6 reasons why you should choose the Neilson Mountain Collection next season.
1. Save with half price lift passes
One of the best early bird offers we have at the moment is half price lift passes* on Mountain Collection holidays. Lift pass discounts are the most asked about offers we have and as you cannot get these on last minute holidays we always recommend booking these early so you don’t miss out. Book your holiday and lift passes early for brilliant savings on your next holiday. This offer is available on all Mountain Collection chalets, chalet hotels and hotels. (*Please note: Half price lift pass deal ends 5th September 2017)

2. Enjoy free ski guiding and coaching
Neilson have teamed up with local ski schools to provide ski guiding and coaching FREE OF CHARGE at their Mountain Collection chalets and hotels. The sessions are at least once a day in hotels and at least 3 sessions a week in chalets. Don’t worry about checking your piste map every 5 minutes and enjoy being guided around resort by the Mountain Experts and learning insider knowledge about the ski area. You will even pick up a few tips to improve your skiing or snowboarding!

3. Family friendly ski holidays with childcare
If you are travelling with children between 4 months and 12 years and in need of childcare, then look no further. Kids club is available in the Mountain Collection hotels in Alpe d’Huez, La Plagne, Les Deux Alpes and El Tarter. Call or email for more information on kids club in these properties.
4. Get the best snow in a high altitude resort
Many of the Mountain Collection chalets and hotels are in resorts with excellent snow reliability so you will receive the best conditions during your holiday. Resorts like Les Deux Alpes, Alpe d’Huez, La Plagne, Tignes and Val d’Isere are high altitude resorts which sit above 1800m with ski areas peaking at over 3000m granting brilliant conditions. These are the best resorts to choose on a ski holiday at the start and end of the season. Choose Hotel Aalborg, Chalet Hotel Turquoise or Chalet L'Armoise for the best snow-sure slopes.

5. Great for groups
Group ski holidays are best when you have a chalet all to yourself. This means you can take your time with dinner, relax in the chalet as you please and talk as much as you like without being worried about disturbing other guests. The Mountain Collection has various sized chalets ranging from sleeping 8 guests to 24. Book early for the best group discounts.
6. Peace of mind

- Pre-book your lift pass with your holiday and your Neilson rep will deliver your passes on the day you arrive in resort.
