Crystal Ski Holidays adds more ‘Slope Starters’ options
Newbies can now pick Andorra and France in exclusive packages for beginners
Crystal Ski Holidays’ first ‘Slope Starters’ week in March 2023 was a hit, so the company has increased its options for nervous beginner skiers and boarders. They can now choose packages to Arinsal, Andorra as well as Flaine, France.
Slope Starters is made for beginner skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts and will take travellers to the mountains for a week of fun skiing and socialising. Starting from £845 per person, the package covers return flights, half-board accommodation, transfers, ski lessons, equipment hire and a lift pass. The Andorra Slope Starters beginner week will be 21-28 January 2024, and Flaine will be 9-16 March 2024.
Besides ski and snowboarding lessons, there’ll be lots of activities beyond the slopes to show what a ski holiday is all about. To help attendees make new friends and feel part of a community, the week will begin with welcome drinks at the hotel, as well as a bowling night, après-ski parties and a spa session. And to end everything on a high note, there’ll be an awards evening on the last night to celebrate customers’ first trips to the mountains.
Chris Logan, Managing Director, Crystal Ski Holidays, said: “At Crystal Ski Holidays, we are always looking for different ways to make skiing and snowboarding more accessible. Holidays in the mountains offer memorable and happy moments for our customers, and we want as many people as possible to be able to experience them.’
“We launched our first ever Slope Starters week for winter 2022-23 in Flaine, France with the aim to remove barriers to skiing and snowboarding for people who have never tried it before, while also showing them how much fun you can have on – and off – the slopes. We’re excited to now be offering a second resort for customers, to give them more choice. What’s great about Slope Starters is everything is taken care of in one complete package and gives travellers the chance to make new, like-minded friends along the way. We hope that once they’ve had their first taste, they’ll keep heading back to the snow time and time again to make more unforgettable memories.”
