CRYSTAL TO OFFER SHORT SKI BREAKS
Thursday September 12, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

The biggest ski tour operator in the UK is moving into the short breaks market. It's a sign of changing times.




Crystal Ski takes more people from the UK and Ireland on ski and snowboard trips than any other UK company.

Traditionally its holidays have been seven night packages.

But increasingly customers have been demanding more flexibility and now Crystal has responded.

"This is really exciting for us, as it means we can offer customers more flexibility and choice when choosing a ski holiday," Crystal told PlanetSKI.

"The short breaks can be either over a weekend or mid-week, and are bookable to selected resorts in France and Austria."

To maximise people's time on the slopes and help our customers get the most out of their holiday, Crystal have chosen ski areas where the transfers are 90 minutes or less:

  • Avoriaz and Flaine in France
  • Ischgl, Kitzbühel, Mayrhofen, Saalbach, Söll, St Anton and Zell am See in Austria

The introduction of short breaks is the latest change introduced by Crystal Ski for the coming winter.

It has cut back its catered chalet properties from 45 to 30.

Those that remain will offer ‘a high quality level of service' with canapés, fizz, bottled wine and after-dinner chocolates all now included as standard.
