It’s ‘Slope Starter’ packages mean people can now choose from Andorra and France in packages exclusively for beginners. NEW
The ‘Slope Starter’ packages are not new – Crystal Ski Holidays started them towards the end of last winter with the first one going out to Flaine in France in March.
It proved a success and the company is now offering packages for apprehensive beginner skiers and snow boarders to Arinsal in Andorra, in addition to Flaine, France.
Slope Starters is designed with the beginner skiing and snowboarding community in mind and will take people to the mountains for a week of skiing and socialising – wiith like-minded companions.
Starting at £845 per person, the package includes return flights, half-board accommodation, transfers, ski lessons, equipment hire and a lift pass.
The Andorra Slope Starters beginner week will run 21-28 January 2024, with Flaine taking place 9-16 March 2024.
In addition to ski and snowboarding lessons, there’ll be plenty of activities on offer beyond the slopes to demonstrate what a ski holiday is all about.
To create a sense of community and to encourage attendees to make new friends, the week will start with welcome drinks at the hotel, as well as a bowling night, partying at après-ski and a relaxing spa session.
And to round everything off, there’s an awards evening on the last night to celebrate people’s debut trips to the mountains.
“At Crystal Ski Holidays, we are always looking for different ways to make skiing and snowboarding more accessible,” said the Managing Director of Crystal Ski Holidays, Chris Logan.
“Holidays in the mountains offer memorable and happy moments for our customers, and we want as many people as possible to be able to experience them.
“We launched our first ever Slope Starters week for winter 2022-23 in Flaine, France with the aim to remove barriers to skiing and snowboarding for people who have never tried it before, while also showing them how much fun you can have on – and off – the slopes.
“We’re excited to now be offering a second resort for customers, to give them more choice.
“What’s great about Slope Starters is everything is taken care of in one complete package and gives travellers the chance to make new, like-minded friends along the way.
“We hope that once they’ve had their first taste, they’ll keep heading back to the snow time and time again to make more unforgettable memories.”
