What is The Ski Gathering?

Shared ski chalet holidays for sociable people.

The Ski Gathering is a shared chalet holiday for individuals and small groups. Sharing a room, solo skiers avoid paying a single supplement. Sharing a chalet, the whole group gets to meet new people and share as much or as little of the ski holiday as they want to. Company when you want it, freedom when you don't.

Offering a social skiing experience, The Ski Gathering is ideal for solo travellers, single skiers / snowboarders, sociable small groups or couples, and anyone who wants to meet people, share a chalet and have a great ski holiday.

Why the Ski Gathering?

Company when you want it...

For many, a highlight of any ski holiday is reliving the experience with fellow-skiers. On the ski lift back up, on the sun terrace with vin chaud, or back in the chalet over dinner. The Ski Gathering gives you the option of sharing your ski experiences, without obligation when you want your own space.

Freedom when you don't

As with any shared chalet, all guests share breakfast times and evening meals together. Beyond that, the choice is yours to ski with the group or to go and blaze your own trail on the slopes. If you're ready for some time alone, or you just want to take the day at your own pace, The Ski Gathering gives you total freedom to be independent and carve your own path.

Who will I be sharing with?

Solo and single skiers

Travelling independently? You've come to the right place. First off, there's no single supplement. Sharing a single-sex twin, triple or quad room with like-minded skiers and snowboarders, there's no empty-bed supplement to worry about. Most people on our holidays are travelling as independent individuals. Read more...

The single-occupancy supplement is generally the biggest headache for individual skiers travelling alone. Usually, solos have to pay a premium for the empty bed, making ski holidays unaffordable for most singles and solo skiers. With The Ski Gathering, you'll be sharing a room so there is no single supplement. Sharing a triple or quad room, you pay slightly less than those sharing a twin.

Sociable twos and threes

Coming as a two or three? You can take a twin room or share a triple or quad room with others. The Ski Gathering is perfect for mixed-ability couples and small groups. Join others of your own ability during your day on the slopes, then exchange tales from the slopes when you meet back up in the chalet.

Typical Day At The Ski Gathering?

Morning

As with any shared chalet, all guests enjoy breakfast around the same time. Your lift pass have been delivered to the chalet so, whenever you're ready, just head for the slopes. World-class skiing awaits...

On the Slopes

The choice is yours: ski with the group or do your own thing. Some like to form small groups of similar experience levels or interests; others like to strike out on an adventure of their own. It's completely up to you.

Evening & Dinners

Join the others for aprés ski in the resort centre, or head back to the chalet to get the first slice of the afternoon cake. We'll all have dinner together (six nights). Grab a drink with the rest of the gang, or hit the hay ready for a big day tomorrow.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

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.

Which resorts can I choose from?

We currently offer ski holidays in Meribel, Morzine, Les Gets and Chamonix Les Houches. 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...

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...

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...

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

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 and Chamonix Les Houches. Currently the only holidays that may have children on them are our "Just Ski" holidays and our single parents holidays.

No Single Supplement!

But what is a single room supplement, anyway?

The single-occupancy supplement is generally the biggest headache for individual skiers travelling alone. Usually, solos have to pay a premium for the empty bed, making ski holidays unaffordable for most singles and solo skiers. With The Ski Gathering, you'll be sharing a room so there is no single supplement. Sharing a triple or quad room, you pay slightly less than those sharing a twin.
