Their motto’s ‘Made in the Mountains’, and they swear that skiing runs in their blood. Skiworld is one of the UK’s largest chalet operators.
Skiworld holidays are created with good value in mind. They offer a carefully chosen range of accommodation across ski resorts in Europe, the USA and Canada, ranging from lower budget to super luxurious.
Joining the fight for skiing sustainability, Skiworld take their responsibility for the alpine environment very seriously, offering offsetting to make your flights carbon neutral. They’ve also taken further steps to make their holidays eco-friendly, like using recyclable and biodegradable products in their chalets and hotels.
‘Ski-all-in’ packages, as the name might suggest, cover things like lift pass and hire of equipment as well as your bed, board and travel. Other transport and accommodation packages leave these things as add-ons if you already have your own gear or don’t yet know how many days you’ll ski.
While flying is the most popular form of transport, train travel and self-drive options are also available within these package holidays. For more far-flung destinations in Canada or the USA, it’s even possible to break up your journey with a city stopover somewhere like Vancouver or Denver.
These catered chalets - and there are plenty to pick from - are all in resorts with awesome track records when it comes to snow conditions. Some are the ultimate doorstep-skiing dream, see them by selecting ‘Ski in/out or Nearby’ in the search filter above.
Catering typically includes 3 meals a day - breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner - for 6 days and you’ll also get wine with dinner. On the other day, to give your hosts some time off, breakfast is help-yourself and you’re free to check out a local restaurant of your choosing.
Look out for the ‘Signature’ chalets if you’re after something a little special - these usually offer extra touches such as cosy bathrobes and slippers, posh toiletries, or the fruit-lover’s dream - a fresh fruit bowl all week. It’s possible to arrange optional travel upgrades too, so drop us a line if you want to journey in style.
Best-suited to smaller groups or couples, hotels give you a bit more privacy than a chalet holiday. Often with facilities such as pools, saunas, spas, and a range of dining options and bars, they're an ideal place to receive a bit of pampering.
These hotels vary in terms of style, some with grand staircases and chandeliers, others with more of a contemporary, minimalist vibe. Whatever the decor, you can generally expect a delicious variety of meals served restaurant-style by dedicated staff. Most hotels will be used to catering for many different dietary requirements - just remember to tell us about these when booking to be extra sure.
These provide a combo of the features of a catered chalet and a hotel, designed with maximum levels of convenience.
You’re likely to find yourself extremely well-fed throughout your stay... Think pre-dinner canapes, 4-course evening meals and a final night celebration feast with special courses. A typical ski lodge dinner might be something like: Italian bruschetta to start, braised pork with potatoes and veg for main, a fruit tart with ice cream for dessert, finishing with a cheeseboard.
Lodge facilities might include ‘wellness areas’ where you’ll normally find at least a hot tub, sauna or swimming pool – just what the doctor ordered to let those muscles relax after a busy day on the hill! Sometimes open to the public, their bars and lounges provide room to enjoy a beer, wine or cocktail with friends you’ve met on the chair lift. There will be on-site staff on hand if you need anything during your stay.
These are a cracking option if you’re wanting to self-cater. There’s a long list to pick from, ranging from a simple-but-clean bedroom, bathroom and kitchen combo to a top-of-the-range, open-plan apartment with that extra ‘je ne sais quoi’ - it really depends what you’re looking for. An apartment could also be a great option for families on their own routine or where there’s perhaps a fussy eater, as you won’t be restricted to specific meal times or menus.
Self-catering needn’t mean compromising location-wise either – it can be just as convenient as other accommodation choices. Self-catering add-ons are available too, such as a grocery starter pack so you’ll already have the essentials when you arrive - no late-night supermarket trips to be stressing about. French Alps packages usually have the option of a meal delivery service if you fancy a night off the cooking, and even a massage service, to soothe those post-skiing aches and pains.
If you only have a few spare days to head to the mountains, opt for one of our long-weekend or midweek 3 or 4 day packages. Because time is of the essence, these are in resorts with less than a 2-hour transfer, and only a short flight from the UK. Geneva airport’s always a good ‘un, just a 1 hour 30 minute flight from London.
Often ski passes and equipment hire can be arranged in advance and ready to collect at your accommodation, so all you have to focus on is getting straight out onto the snow.
If you’re someone who prefers four wheels over two wings, or just want to save on the added cost of flights, Skiworld offer self-drive packages to a number of European resorts. These typically include a Eurotunnel ticket to save you having to sort that separately.
Deals often include early booking discounts for top destinations and hotels, and you can catch flash sales from time to time offering some absolute bargains - like 50% off chalet prices.
Ski-all-in holidays include ski passes and equipment, so everything’s covered for less than you’d spend sorting it all out separately.
This page shows absolutely all Skiworld packages on offer. Our star ratings give an indication of what provides the most superior quality, and our filter tool lets you search through packages according to price, location, accommodation and facility preferences.
We work with all other ski tour operators too, so you can compare Skiworld chalets with packages from other chalet companies here, and do the same with hotels here. Get in touch if you have any questions at all - SNO bother for us!
Operating from Hammersmith in London, Skiworld was founded in 1982 by Ian Coleby who still serves as Chairman today. With a love for skiing and also a keen eye for value, he wanted to create ski holidays that were of top quality but for a better price than what was generally offered at the time. He succeeded in style!
