Customer Review: Formigal — Quiet Mountain, Charming Locals & Great Food

clock 26th March 2013 | comment0 Comments
One of our recent customers wrote to us and asked if he could post a review on our blog. We said yes, of course, so here is Dave Moisley's take on the Spanish resort of Formigal and our very own Boyd. Fancy skiing away from the crowds with no lift queues and polite and cheerful piste staff? Then forget the Alps and America and head for the Pyrenees, and no it’s not Andorra, but Formigal in the Spanish Pyrenees! We have skied here three times in last six years and every time it has been a great skiing experience. This little known resort has had huge amounts of investment over the last few years and boasts modern facilities and a good snow record, spread over four linked valleys. It has ove... [More]


Driving To The Alps With Kids

clock 28th February 2013 | comment0 Comments
Kirsteen, keen skier and mother of two, gives us her top tips on driving to the Alps with kids. This was our third drive to the mountains — and one of many road trips around France — so we thought we had it all sussed but this time there were a few key differences and we learnt a few new tricks for next time.

The break helps beginners get over those anxious first few turns on the slopes and looks like a great confidence building tool. It will be interesting to see if any ski schools in Europe adopt these boards over the coming seasons.


Ski Hosting Why We Love It And What's Gone Wrong

clock 20th February 2013 | comment1 Comments
This week a French court in the Alpine town of Albertville ruled that ski hosting offered by British tour operators is illegal and has therefore been banned. Following the news several tour operators we work with have come out and stated they are no longer offering the service. The court ruled that under French law you have to be a qualified ski or snowboard instructor to lead groups on the mountain and under the scrutiny of safety, the staff offering ski hosting were not qualified to do so. Therefore, under French law the ski hosting that has been offered is both illegal and dangerous. What Is Ski Hosting? Ski hosting is where either your resort rep or chalet host take you out for a day on... [More]
