Orcières Ski Resort:

Orcières 1850 is a great high altitude resort for beginners right through to advanced skiers and snowboarders who want to ski or surf "off the beaten track". With over 100km of groomed pistes to explore, you won't get bored in Orcières 1850. This compact ski resort is also easy to get about and navigate both on piste and in the resort village.

Hassle Free Ski:

We believe in making your holidays hassle free so for all our ski and snowboard adventure packages, we'll meet you in resort, give you your ski pass (no queuing at the ticket desk), pre-book your skis or snowboards and arrange your chosen activities. We'll give you advice on where the best pistes are, where to eat, shop and generally have fun in the resort and surrounding area!

We will also provide all the details and information you need for your ski holiday in the Alps on a fully personalised App for your smartphone that you can download before you arrive. 

Other Adventures:

To add a bit of extra adventure to your skiing or snowboarding holiday we also include 4 activity points which you can exchange for a range of other winter activities to spice up your week! Try ice climbing, husky dog sledding, snowshoeing and more...

If all these other activities sound tempting, you may even prefer to swap your holiday for our winter multi activity holidays which gives you more activity points and more time for other activities with skiing as just one of the options! 

Ski Lessons:

If you would like to include ski lessons, crèche or babysitting services, ski kindergarten, additional activities or a different holiday formula, please contact us and we'll tailor make you a quote.

We appreciate the importance of quality ski instruction and have chosen to work with the ESI (Ecole de Ski Internationale) ski school for ski lessons who are slightly more expensive then the other ski schools but offer a more personal and friendly service with smaller group sizes.

You can use your activity points for ski lessons or ask us to add them on in addition when you enquire.
