Planning your holiday, we are with you every step along the way.
If the chalet of your choice is already booked, our team is happy to suggest equivalent alternatives and take care of the details. You can expect your vacation to be personalized to suit your tastes.
You should definitely book your rentals in advance to ensure your ideal rental equipment is available. Peak season is extremely busy and rentals can sell out quickly.
We recommend ski and snowboard packages from GoSnow, Rhythme Snow Sports and Niseko Base Snowsports, both with rental outlet located conveniently approximate to lifts.
We highly recommend booking your lessons before the trip – Lessons book out months in advance for peak season, and even during the quieter periods you should pre-book so that the lesson can fit in smoothly to your holiday schedule.
