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 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.

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