A typical day with 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 & Dinner

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. 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?

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" weeks.

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.

Any Questions?
