Group skiing in apartments 2016 2017 self catering group ski apts from Sno ®
While it's unusual to find ski apartments that sleep groups of more than 8 or 10 people, self-catering apartments remain very popular for group ski holidays because you can usually request that you be allocated several apartments close together, and the super cheap price of a large self-catered ski apartment means that the basic holiday cost remains extremely low.
This low starting price makes the group ski trip affordable to the maximum number of friends and family, because those on a tighter budget can cater for themselves, and the more flush in the group can eat out to avoid the effort of food shopping, cooking and washing up. We think it's fair to say that, among all the different types of group ski holidays, those in self-catered apartments allow the largest number of people to go away skiing together.
Group ski apartments are a real budget booster and can allow you to ski in a better resort than you might afford if booking a chalet or hotel. For those who spend all day on the piste and all evening on the town, self-catered group skiing is also the perfect choice if your digs are merely a place to sleep. If you have a large ski group booking self-catering apartments, it's worth discussing whether you all want to cook and eat together at least some of the time,
because that might affect the room types and sizes that you decide to go for. For example a group of 18 might have a choice of apartments which sleep up to 4, to 6 or to 8 people. If you plan to eat out or not cook together, you might prefer mostly 4 berth so you have less people in each apartment. If you want to cook and eat together, it may be better to choose at least one apartment for 8, so that you have a room with a fighting chance of squeezing you all in for supper.
The best self-catering holidays for group skiing tend to be in the resorts with the most variety both on the piste and in the resort. If you're group ski trip is trying to minimise budget then group ski apartments are definitely the cheapest way to go skiing together, but it makes it more fair on those in your group who are not skint, if you choose accommodation which is close to all the amenities of your resort. If everyone is on a tight budget, no problem, simply use the search box top right to select “self catering” plus your preferred dates and airport and click “search” then use “Sort by” in the results to show the cheapest holidays first. If you want to make sure there's lots on offer for everyone in the group, check out these recommended group ski apartments and remember that the bigger your group, the earlier you should book.
For a beautiful choc-box resort and awesome skiing across the whole Espace Killy we recommend Balcons de Bellevarde apartments because they're close to the slopes and funicular in La Daille and and barely a 20 minute stagger home from the terrific night life in the centre of Val d'Isere. A true way to ski and party in Val d'Isere without paying central Val prices! If you really must stay in the centre add a mere eighty quid (ish) per person and stay at the amazing value Jardins de la Balme apartments which are the cheapest group skiing in Val d'Isere pretty much every winter.
For snow-sure group ski apartments stay in Belambra les Olympiades apartments in Val Thorens which are ski in/ski out from the heart of Europe's highest altitude resort. You'll be sharing rooms and likely have some pull out and sofa beds but the prices are amazing so you have enough sheckles left for that group ski favourite, the awesome 3 Valleys full area lift pass!
If your group wants to go skiing for the absolute least amount of money possible, forget simply searching self-catered apartments by cheapest price, and book smart by choosing an all inclusive ski holiday.
