Covid-19 Information Everything you need to know about Covid-19 and your Ski Gathering holiday.

Last Updated: 16 September 2020

Here at The Ski Gathering we have been working hard to ensure you can go on a safe solo ski holiday this coming season. We have been working with our partners to come up with a robust plan for dealing with Covid issues both before your holiday and in resort.

As you may be aware we have a different accommodation partner in each resort. This means that the terms and condition of your booking may differ slightly from resort to resort. We have laid out the details for what will happen in each resort below.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to to get in touch.

Covid Rooming Update:

We have reduced the types of room types that we offer for the 2020-2021 season.

We now have three different room types:

  1. Single Rooms: Theses rooms will be occupied by just one person and will have either a private bathroom or an en-suite.
  2. Budget Single: These rooms will be occupied by just one person but will have a shared bathroom.
  3. Twin Rooms: These rooms can only be occupied by two people who are from the same household or are travelling together. They will have a private bathroom or en-suite.

Les Gets (Mountain & Tradition)

Important changes for 2020-2021 season

We have had to make some adjustments to our normal solo chalet holidays in The Alpine Loft for this season.

No More Hosts

We will not have hosted chalets this season. The chalets will be cleaned and there will be a holiday rep to meet you and deal with any issues that may arise through out the holiday.

But how will that work?

A host/cleaner will attend the chalet twice a day to tend to the needs of the guests along with periodic visits from the resort rep. They will be practising social distancing.

The host/cleaner will come in early to set up breakfast for the group and also clean up dinner from the night before.

After breakfast dinner will be delivered to the chalet while the guests are out skiing. Breakfast will also be cleared at this time.

How will food work?

Mountain and Tradition (our Les Gets partner) are very experienced in delivered freshly made high quality food to chalets. This has been a highly successful model in their other chalets for many years. For this years solo holidays they will deliver individual delivered pots of freshly made food.

Whats included this season:

  • 7 days of breakfast - continental with freshly baked croissants and baguettes.
  • 7 days of dinner - two courses of hearty mountain food perfect fuel for the slopes.
  • Drinks included

If you have any questions please do get in touch.
