Frequently asked questions about The Ski Gathering

Frequently Asked Questions about our ski holidays.

Who will be there?

You will be sharing the chalet with other independent travellers just like you, plus perhaps some groups of two or three skiers who already know each other but would like to mix with others. There will be a full range of abilities from day-one beginners to seasoned veterans of the slopes.

Is this a dating holiday?

No. The Ski Gathering does not offer "dating ski holidays" or "ski holidays for singles", as such. Instead, we tend to think of our ski trips as shared chalet holidays for individual skiers and sociable solo travellers.

Will I be sharing a bedroom?

In most cases, yes. That's how all of our guests can avoid the single supplement. There are some single bedrooms in certain chalets. Otherwise, you can opt to share a twin, triple, quad or five-bed room, depending on the chalet and its availability. See all chalets...

What age and sex are the other people?

A broad spectrum of age groups join our holidays. Our holidays tend to be balanced between a mix of younger people and more mature people. We have an "over 18" only policy in most of our chalets but our guests tend to be older than 21. We do have holidays for specific age groupes which you can find here. It can depend on the specific group but the balance between male and female guests tends to be about 50/50.

Will there be children in my chalet?

Typically no, unless specified there are no children on our holidays. Our adult only ski holidays are run in Meribel, Morzine, Les Gets, Chamonix Les Houchesand Zell Am See. Currently the only holidays that may have children on them are our "Just Ski" holidays and our single parents holidays.

Can couples come along?

Absolutely, sociable couples are very welcome. Just ask us for your own double or twin room (n.b. all rooms are single-sex except by request by mixed-sex couples). Enjoy time as a two when you want to, join the rest group when it suits.

Do we have to 'join in'?

No. There are no formal or pre-arranged group activities. Nobody telling you how to have fun. It's totally casual. Meet other friendly people and do whatever makes a ski holiday awesome for you.

How is this different from a regular shared chalet?

Firstly, we offer adults-only ski holidays, so there are no children or teenagers. Perhaps more importantly, everyone who books has chosen to share their ski holiday with other outgoing and friendly people.

Will my extras be organised for me?

Yes, just let us know what you need and we will get everything sorted for you, hassle-free. We can arrange your lift pass, your ski hire and your ski lessons, if applicable. Happy to help.

Are transfers included?

Airport transfers are typically not included in our chalet prices though this does vary from resort to resort, we are very happy to arrange your transfers for you.

When should I arrive?

The best time to arrive (when possible) is some time in the mid afternoon of the first day. If however you need to arrive in resort at another time we will do our best to accommodate you. The reason we recommend mid afternoon on the first day is because it give you an excellent chance to meet the other guests

Is there a single supplement?

No. Single skiers and snowboarders share a room so there is no single supplement to pay. A simple solution to an age-old problem. Read more...

Which resorts can I choose from?

We currently offer ski holidays in Meribel, Morzine, Les Gets, Chamonix Les Houchesand Zell Am See. All these resorts deserves to be near the top of any skier's bucket list, offering genuinely world-class skiing on- and off-piste. Read more...

Who goes on our beginners holidays?

You will be sharing the chalet with other independent travellers just like you. Some will be beginners, others more experienced. There may also be some groups of two or three skiers who are of mixed abilities and so would like the chance to ski separately but with other people.
