Family skiing at its best
Thursday September 19, 2013 - Email this article to a friend

The specialist company Esprit Ski has taken 275,000 people skiing over its 30 year history. Some that went as kids are now coming back as parents. Next season it takes holidaymakers to 15 resorts across 4 countries. Clearly it is doing something right.

Esprit Ski offers pretty much everything a family could need to enjoy a skiing holiday in some of the best winter sports locations in Europe.

This year it seems it have gone that extra mile to offer better value for money and some very good prices.

It provides great deals on completely integrated child care packages, flights, insurance and accommodation in chalets or hotels that give every family the opportunity to enjoy a skiing holiday together.

So, what is on offer for this season?

It is offering special family deal packages that include the children in the reductions.

"Esprit family Ski is first and foremost about quality, in our child care, our ski lessons, our accommodation and our guest services, but we are also committed to providing excellent value for money for all our guests," said Moira Clarke from Esprit Ski.

"Our range of child discounts is bigger and better than ever. We are pleased to offer several more ways for families to save with Esprit Ski," she added.

Right, lets get straight to the detail - here is what is currently available.

The company is has also changed its policy and is offering bigger discounts to children.

Previously its pricing worked on the principle that children received the full discounts when sharing a room with two full-paying adults, but the kids received only half the discounts shown when children were in their own room.

Now the early-booking children get the full discounts even when they have their own room.

Under-Occupancy Supplements reduced

Easprit Ski has also reduced the 'minimum occupancy' level required for many rooms. This ends hundreds of under-occupancy supplements, which used to apply when two guests shared a 'triple' room, or a family of four occupied a suite 'for 5-6'.

For example, a family of four in one of Chalet Adler's lovely 3-roomed family suites previously would have paid an under-occupancy supplement of up to £433 for all that extra space, but now pay nothing.

Up to £150 per couple off Adult Brochure Prices

There are reductions of up to £80 per person off selected properties and dates for early bookings.

These special discounts are limited, so book now to secure this extra saving!

Single Parent Special Offers

Prices are normally based on at least two full paying persons per room. However if just one parent wants to ski with one or two children then Esprit Ski is offering rooms in selected properties where this requirement is waived.

The  children receive the full discounts, even though accompanied by only one full-paying adult.
