Having chatted through the process of booking a ski holiday a zillion times
over the last 14 years, we know that booking a group holiday is never at the
top of your ‘favourite things to do in my spare time’ list.
We offer a discount of £25 per person when you book sole occupancy of one of our chalets(all 14 places in Jamais Bleu and Juliette and all 12 places in Dahu). Get in touch
for more information.
Here are our tips on how to organise a successful group ski trip:
1) You’re in charge.
This is a good thing – everyone else is relieved it’s not them, which means
they’re usually quite happy for you to make decisions! Boss them around and be
clear about what you want and when. Don’t take any nonsense, and as a last
resort threaten to hand over the role to them!
2) What’s the most important thing for
the holiday to be a success?
Is it location? Is it a hot tub? Is it easy access to ski school? Identity
these one or two important points and focus your research around them. At Ski
Dazzle our chalets are all ski-in, ski-out and with hot tubs.
3) Lists (gotta have a list…)
Here’s a list of what you should have on your list! Collate all the answers in
a table or spreadsheet, however you prefer to work.
a) Who are you travelling with? Names of definites and maybes.
b) Sleeping arrangements
c) Flights & transfers – Preferences of airport, dates, times*
d) Ski School – names, level
e) Ski Hire – boots/skis or snowboard/helmets
f) Dietary requirements – any veggies/intolerances? (The more we know, the
better we cater!)
g) Lift pass requirements – how many days, which pass, families**
h) Other requests
i) Children - highchairs, meal times, childcare required?
* Flights & Transfers - at Ski Dazzle we offer transfers, just let us know your flight details and
we’ll work out the rest and provide a quote.
** Ski Passes - this is a little complicated but luckily we’re experts! Ask away once you
have as much information as you can extract from your group.
Collect deposits from everyone (just in case anyone drops out) and ideally pay
them in one lump sum once you have received everyone’s payment.
Make sure this is all written down carefully and that you have a note of what
the remaining balance is, how it is split between families/couples and when the
balance is due then (ideally) make one payment from your account.
If you're all spending the majority of your time together, then a good way to ensure no-one gets caught in huge rounds is to have a kitty - everyone puts in the same amount at the beginning and the leader is in charge of paying the tab with it!
5) Just ask
The most important thing to remember when booking a group holiday is to ask
questions. The more information you have, the easier it will be. And don’t
forget that at Ski Dazzle we have been organising group bookings for years and
years, so we’re well-equipped with expert knowledge about the resort, lift
passes, and most importantly, the chalets. We have answers to all your
questions and are available to help make your life easier, it’s all part of our
