Skiworld's news for next winterSkiworld's news for next winter

Winter 18/19 is ending with powder and fresh snow to ski and snowboard in many of the resorts still open.

Check out PlanetSKI Editor James Cove's piece as he reports live from the snowy slopes:
It is, however, over for our tour operators, agents and chalet companies who are now looking ahead to next season.

We're inundated with savings, discounts and package deals for winter holidays in Winter 19/20.

So, here we share...

Tour operator Inghams and ski chalet specialist Ski Total have launched a special groups deal ahead of the winter 19/20 season.

And, if we do say so ourselves, it's a seriously good deal for those thinking of big group trips next winter.

For new group bookings made before 17th May, 2019 one in five guests goes free.

"Ski holidays are made for groups," Inghams says.

"It's all about having fun together on the slopes and at après, and catching up over dinner in the evenings.

"A chalet is the perfect accommodation choice for a relaxed, home-from-home environment where you can share laughs, stories and photos from the day."

Group offers include:  
  • Up to one in five goes free on charter flights or Eurostar, for groups staying in a chalet or chalet hotel
  • Free lift passes for group leaders of 15 or more (travelling with Inghams) when group members pre-book lift passes
  • Two-for-one ski / board and boot hire when a lift pass is pre-booked
  • Free name changes up to four weeks prior to the group's departure, on all charter flights
  • Flexible flying, meaning groups can depart from different UK airports and meet up in resort
  • Free exclusive private airport transfers for groups of 25 guests or more on the same flight
  • Group ski lessons (with Inghams) - members can ski together in the same class

Enjoy six nights' catering in all chalets and chalet hotels:

For the Winter 2019/20 ski season, Inghams and Ski Total are pleased to re-introduce six nights' catering in their chalets and chalet hotels.  

For more information, visit the Inghams or Ski Total website.

Previous Inghams guest Greg says:

"We went to Alpe d'Huez in France last winter, to celebrate my 40th birthday - it was the best!

"I invited some of my best friends who, nowadays, it's hard to find the time to catch up with.

"We wanted to escape the everyday and it was just brilliant spending quality time together on the slopes and in the chalet.

"We were mixed abilities so Alpe d'Huez suited us perfectly because it has a good variety of runs and it's a bowl so it was easy to find each other.

"Because we booked early, we also got the chalet we wanted - sitting in the hot tub with a beer after snowboarding was just the dream!"
