Ski Weekend Customer Testimonials
This is why we do what we do. 35 years and counting (since 1987) ...
“Thank you for arranging our guide Jean Luc: he was absolutely outstanding. He had the perfect mix of humour, calmness, knowledge and safety advice without freaking everyone out, and was supremely skilled. We all had a fantastic and intrepid day out.”
“We’d all like to offer enormous thanks to the Ski Weekend team for making this such an effortless trip and roaring success.”
“I am honestly struggling to think of a single aspect of the trip that could have been better. For a group who really valued making the most of every minute of our time away, it really could not have been any better.”
Doug and the Ski Weekend team provide an amazing first class service.
I've never dealt with anyone so responsive, they get back to you within minutes even out of hours, I hope they get to sleep sometime!
Doug suggested destinations and accommodation for our long weekend. He took all the hassle out of the arrangements and everything ran so smoothly, leaving us free to enjoy ourselves without any worry or stress.
I would strongly recommend Ski Weekend to anyone looking to book a weekend ski trip.
I have been a client of Ski Weekend for over ten years. During that time I have found them to be an incredibly professional and efficient company. Ski Weekend do all the hard work so as you can maximise your time on the slopes.
I thoroughly recommend them to anyone planning a short break.
Ski Weekend magic again. Over 30 years now. Megeve, Courmayeur, Argentiere and Chamonix all in four days. Best snow, restaurants, guides and hosts. A la prochaine! Merci Gavin and Sue.
“Thank you for your excellent organisation and hospitality; in particular the top class fondue, and also the transfer to the airport and back.”
“Nico and Lionel were excellent guides and found us terrific snow, your choices of mountain restaurant were first class and Concept Pro were also excellent on both the boot-fitting and ski-servicing fronts.”
"Five stars all round"
Ski Weekend has been our default choice as our tour operator for more years than I can remember, both for organising official Sky Media trips to Chamonix, or personal short breaks to Megeve and beyond.
The personal team headed by the directors, Sue and Gavin, who have become friends, have always led a discerning team who care about what matters and go the extra mile.
They have been operating since the late-80s to the same exacting standards. That not only tells you a thing or two about their consistency and reliability, but also their resilience and product adaptation, which have withstood the test of time throughout all that the past 30+ years has served up.
From competitive imitators and recessions, to credit crashes and volcano ashes, it’s the same owners operating the same philosophy for providing the ultimate short break.
Ski Weekend continues to be our go-to choice for arranging and putting in place our bespoke requirements for winter and adventure travel. We look forward to working with the team again in the future.’
Just a quick to let you know we had a fantastic weekend in La Clusaz! A great village with lovely slopes and a good variety of levels. The hotel was amazing!! I don’t know if you have been there yourself but I cannot rate it highly enough. It’s comfortable, smart, friendly and the food is superb. Really lovely.
Thank you for a most fabulous long weekend. It will be remembered for a very long time. Special mention to our guide Nico who managed to both push me but never let me feel unsafe.
Good to catch up with you last week. It's very entertaining watching you and Tim having a banter! Great skiing conditions for us too, Les Contamines was a real gem. Hotel, Ski Weekend service, skis, and personal attention. Can't fault any of it!
Just to say, thank you again for arranging our few days with Seppi. We had a fabulous time and Seppi was wonderful, as always. He found the snow where there was some, and put us through our paces without actually killing us. We’re already talking to Seppi about next year and he has some new ideas!
Just back and I would like to say a big thank you to all your team. Your professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. We had a blast.
The St. Alban in La Clusaz is a lovely hotel and the staff are really efficient and friendly. They were very helpful recommending restaurants and giving resort information. The hotel has a nice pool & sauna and the breakfasts were really good. Thank you Doug and Jackie at Ski Weekend for your assistance and I’ll definitely be back next year!
I wanted to thank you for arranging a super couple of days and for making sure not only that we got great snow, but also for bringing together a great group of people. Well done and I hope you have a super rest of the season and a lot of good air in the summer. Please give Lionel and Jerome my best – they were fantastic.
Today I ticked off the number one item on my bucket list: we went heli-skiing. Somewhere near Bormio in Italy. May have to write a new bucket list. What a day! Thanks to Gavin at Ski Weekend.
Just a short note to thank you for an amazing weekend, despite challenging conditions we all had a brilliant time and loved staying at Chalet Jumelles –the food was super and the team made it really fun! The guests that had lessons now want to do more skiing – so that was a big tick too! Thanks so much and hope to see you soon.
Stuart and I stayed in your beautiful chalet last week. We had a fantastic time and I have to say what gems both JeanEve and JJ are. They both looked after us so brilliantly, with humour and we’re always there when we needed them. JJ’s food was stunning and JeanEve running us around made such a difference to being with you for just a few days. I have been going to chalets for skiing holidays for over 20 years and I have to say our experience in yours was quite simply the best we have experienced. The next time we come to Chamonix you will definitely be our first choice.
Just a quick note to say many thanks for all the great arrangements this past weekend. We really appreciated how well you, Christine & Ross looked after us. It was great to meet you all. All the main arrangements flowed through just as Doug had outlined. It was very kind of you to wait to allow us to pick up our delayed luggage on arrival. The chalet worked out perfectly, and dinner was outstanding each evening. Jean-Yves and Justine are a great team, what a chef Justine is!
I have just returned from a most enjoyable weekend at your chalet in Chamonix and would like to pay tribute to all the resort staff. All are great ambassadors for your company. I attach a photograph of the pudding that was presented to us on the last night and I feel that this fully illustrates the extra mile that the chalet staff, Justine and Jean-Yves, were willing to go to make our stay feel special.
My daughter and I have just returned from a great four days in Cervinia, This is to say a very big thank you for recommending Cervinia and the excellent Hotel Miravidi and of course for the usual friendly and efficient service from your team. Much appreciated.
Just back from a long weekend in Chamonix with my daughter Jo. Have been with Ski Weekend many times before but this was as good as it gets. Snow was terrific, weather (after it stopped snowing) sparkling but what made it special was having Russell almost to ourselves for three days. Great skier; tolerant and understanding guide; excellent company; top bloke. It was a privilege experiencing the mountains with you Russ. Thanks again for everything.
Thank you for the lovely break, we all enjoyed it very much. The snow was amazing and the staff were very helpful.
I just wanted to say a quick thank you for organising our trip. Everyone had a fantastic time and came away very tired and tanned. Thanks for all your organisation and support.
We had a really wonderful weekend and were thoroughly impressed with Ski Weekend’s organization. Daf and Simon our ‘hosts’ were brilliant. So thank you.
The trip was a great success. Andy and Steph as promised lived up to the hype and were fantastic hosts. Lovely chalet with all the amenities a group could need. Food and drink was excellent.
I have to say I have not ever taken the trouble before to follow up with a travel company on the back of a holiday but I just wanted to let you know we had a great weekend in Chamonix. We were extremely happy with the service offered by Ski Weekend both in Exeter and in resort in Chamonix. The transfers, accommodation and in particular the guiding from Nino & Sarah were all excellent.
I have been meaning to do this since we got back, but life in general has got in the way. I wanted to let you know what a FABULOUS weekend we had with you two weekends ago in Chamonix. We were lucky enough to have action hero Daf looking after us and I can’t sing his praises loudly enough. He was a charming, helpful, kind (to my kids especially), interesting host and generally showed us a very good time in the most understated manner. I loved our weekend and all that remains is to say….it’s my 40th next February and my best present would be to repeat the experience we had this year…maybe with a few friends thrown in.
Supremely well organised Ski Summit, Doug! People will not be forgetting it anytime soon. Thank you to you and all your team. Best wishes from us all.
A short note to thank you and all the Ski Weekend staff (in the UK and Chamonix – David, Simon, Rory etc) for a very memorable four days skiing. The service from the initial enquiry through to being dropped off at Geneva at the end of the course was first class. I would also like to thank all involved for the flexibility and help given to Sarah for the two days of the TNTT Course. Her first ski of 2010/11 was down the Vallee Blanche! The guides – Lionel and Yves were fantastic, knowing when to encourage. Their knowledge of the area given the varied conditions off piste was fantastic! Lionel managed to find some untracked snow. I would not hesitate to recommend Ski Weekend and will more than likely be booking another trip if not this season then next. Thank you once again
Will almost certainly come again, perhaps even bring the wife (she would love Chambre Neuf)! We all enjoyed the trip and found all of your team to be most helpful. A special note of thanks should go to Rory who put up with us in his daily guiding and made a big contribution to the weekend.
I just wanted to say thanks for a great weekend. Where there are 10 blokes to arrange it’s impossible to get everything right (!!) but I think you guys made a good effort. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for you to arrange. The hotel was great and I think we all enjoyed all the lunches and dinners. The transfers ran very smoothly and picking up the skis on Thursday night was a winner. Overall it was a great weekend.
Yet again a marvellous experience, wonderful food, excellent guides who found the narrowest of corridors of sunshine and excellent snow. Nothing was too much trouble for the chalet staff, happy friendly people who made us feel completely relaxed and at home. Thank you to you all and see you next year. Thank you once again.
