Finding Your Ideal Ski Accommodation

Back to Finding Your Perfect 20-21 Ski Holiday

When it comes to ski holidays, you have a choice of a large range of fantastic accommodation options. This is helpful when booking as it means you can tailor your trip to your budget, group needs and personal preferences. We explore all the different options below, so that you can see exactly which accommodation will be best for you.

Don’t forget! No matter what accommodation you choose, your lift pass is included with Sunweb.

For the Keenest Skiers - Ski-in ski-out

Ski-in, ski-out accommodation is the ultimate in convenience for skiers who don’t want to waste a single second of their time on the slopes. Whether it’s a chalet, hotel or apartment, booking ski-in, ski-out means you’ll be right on the slopes and can ski straight from, as well as back to, your door. It’s a great option for families, as you won’t need to carry your skis across town, or walk any distance in ski boots (which we can acknowledge aren’t always the most comfortable footwear!).

Our pick of this year’s best ski-in, ski-out accommodation:

For Larger Groups - A Private Chalet

For larger groups, there’s nothing better than a private chalet. When you picture your ultimate group ski holiday, this is what tends to come to mind. A true home away from home, with everyone relaxing by a fire with a cup of tea and a cake after a long day’s skiing, evenings spent around the dinner table or lounging on the sofas playing games, all with spectacular snowy views outside. You can choose from catered and self-catered chalets. Catered chalets will generally include evening meals at set times, four or five nights out of six.

For Families - Self-Catered Apartments or half board hotels

For the most stress-free family ski trip, flexibility is key. A self-catered apartment means that you can eat when you want and what you want, so you can cater to individual preferences and dietary requirements. It also means you’ll have your own space and privacy, as well as the opportunity to go out and enjoy the town’s restaurants or off-slope activities without any restrictions.

A hotel can also serve as a great base for kids, as you don’t have to worry about cooking or cleaning and can focus on the important elements of your holiday – skiing and enjoying yourself! Having staff on-hand to deal with any unforeseen issues can provide that extra peace of mind for parents.

For the Lovebirds - Luxury Hotels or Self-Catered Apartments

Is there anything more romantic than a charming ski resort, all twinkling lights and snow-covered chalets, cobbled streets and mulled wine? In our opinion, it’s the ultimate winter wonderland and one of the best experiences you can share as a couple. There are a range of great accommodation choices for couples, meaning you can choose what’s best for your budget. If you’re thinking of splashing out, there’s nothing better than a luxury hotel – think hot tubs overlooking frosty mountainscapes and steam rooms your aching muscles are sure to appreciate!

Alternatively, if you’re on more of a budget, you can enjoy the privacy of a cosy, self-catered apartment, with the option of a romantic candlelit dinners in a local restaurant whenever you fancy!
