Ski Big or Ski Home |
A skiing holiday for two? No problem. A skiing holiday for 20+? That’s where it starts to look tricky. But organising a ski trip for a big group doesn’t have to be a big deal. And it doesn’t have to mean big bucks. Whether you’re planning a trip with the family, a reunion with the friends, or even a corporate bonding experience, it can be positively straightforward to organise the logistics of a group ski trip without spending a fortune.
The holy grail of a group ski trip is the perfect catered ski chalet. Tignes is the pick of the crop when it comes to this crucial asset. Known for its impeccable range of catered chalets, its tranquil yet engaged atmosphere, and its stunning skiing, Tignes is perfect for the larger group. So, here are some tips to booking a low-cost, stress-free group ski trip at this fantastic French resort.
1. Think Outside the Box
Avoiding big name resorts and opting for lesser-known destinations will not only be kind to your purse strings. It will also help avoid the crowds. You’ve come on holiday as a group, so you want to be able to enjoy the experience together. No jostling in line at the ski lifts or having to split up when it comes to activities.
Tignes ticks all the boxes here. Although renowned for its culture and high-quality skiing, it offers both lower prices and all the amenities you’ll need.
2. Be the Early Bird
You’ll see big savings if you book your extras online, rather than waiting until you get to the slopes. At Tignes, you can buy discounted passes online during the low season periods and choose whether you want them delivered to your door (free of charge) or made available for you on arrival. So, get booking!
3. Skip the Schools
If at all possible, plan your trip to fall outside the school holidays. While the kids are still hard at work, you’ll not only have far more peace and quiet on the slopes, you’ll also make a significant saving. With slopes catering to a range of abilities, Tignes is popular with families, meaning that prices can rise during the school holidays in accordance with the increase in demand.
4. Grow Your Group
The bigger your party, the lower the cost. Tignes offers discounted lift passes for groups of 20 skiers of more, and may even offer free passes for the one in charge (you deserve it!). Plus, the cost of accommodation will decrease as your group grows.
5. Go Catered
Sorting out a top-quality catered chalet will take 99% of the burden off your shoulders –imagine not having to find somewhere for you all to eat every night! Crucially, a catered chalet will also provide your group with a social hub – in addition our Chalet Hotels are particularly ideal for groups as these include a bar on the premises. Nothing is better for team bonding than the sense that you’re really sharing a living space. Thankfully, when it comes to catered ski chalets, Tignes has plenty to offer.
A catered chalet may seem like the expensive option, but in Tignes, an all-inclusive deal will actually help you save money. And last but not least, wine is included in the price! So you can all kick back and relax at the end of a fabulous day’s skiing.
