New offerings from Ski Total for 2014/15
Saturday August 30, 2014 - Email this article to a friend

The specialist chalet operator has new resorts, new hotels and a special product with added services. Importantly it is after new skiers and those that haven't been for a while.

The company believes the corner has been turned in the general decline in the snowsports market over the past 5 years and now is the time to invest and look to the future.

"It is an exciting time with the UK economy picking up and some optimism returning. While out in the Alps resorts and hotels have been working hard to improve their products and encourage people back on the slopes," said the marketing manager of Ski Total, Moira Clarke.

"We aim to capitalise on the change and have an exciting season ahead," she added.

So, what is on offer from Ski Total?

1.    2 NEW Resorts - The popular French resort of Flaine and the charming Italian resort of Champoluc have been added to the Ski Total portfolio of top class Alpine ski destinations.  

2.    2 NEW Chalet Hotels - The typically-Italian, Breithorn, in Champoluc  and the traditional Austrian, Elisabeth, in Lech. The Elisabeth comes  with a swimming pool.

3.    4 MORE chalets - New to this year's brochure are three chalets in Flaine and one in Val d'Isère.

4.    1 NEW 'Xtra' chalet - The Belmonte in Ischgl is the first chalet in this category for Ski Total, offering a few valuable included 'Xtras' to enhance the chalet experience.

5.    'Learn to Ski or Snowboard' - Four resorts offer a package deal on ski packs for beginners, saving up to £114pp.

6.    'Ski Again'  - Ski Total is partnering with the Austrian National Tourist Office in their new 'Ski Again' campaign aimed at enabling lapsed skiers and boarders to return to the snow.

Ski Total is a sister company of Inghams.

We have reported in detail on this new initiative to help people ski again that is being run with Inghams to try to help more people enjoy skiing and snowboarding; see here for that feature article.

The Belmonte in Ischgl is the first chalet in Xtra category for Ski Total.

It offers some valuable included 'Xtras' to enhance the chalet experience. There are cakes and savouries at afternoon tea, the local cheese board after dinner, and drinks in the resident's bar run by Ski Total staff.

In Flaine the company offers three chalets built in contemporary Scandinavian style with views over the snow bowl of Flaine.

Flaine is part of the Grand Massif Ski Area, one of the largest ski areas in the French Alps, with slopes for all levels. The highest peak is at 2,500m.

The Breithorn is a well-established Chalet Hotel , full of charm which has been restored and modernised yet kept its traditional Alpine features and character.

The spacious lounge and reception area has an open fire and wooden vaulted ceilings.

See here for an earlier PlanetSKI article on the hotel when we heard that it was being offered by Ski Total for next season.
