Win A Ski Holiday for Two to the French Alps with Ski Amis

Win a catered chalet ski holiday for two in one of the world’s largest ski areas! Indulge on a full English breakfast, homemade cakes and 3 course meals with unlimited wine for 7 nights in the French Alps! You could be staying in Les Menuires, La Tania or La Plagne – all great resorts with skiing heights up to 2850m and plenty of après ski, bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Catered Chalets that are ski in/ski out, traditional, big enough for the whole family or in a peaceful beautiful location – the choice is yours if you win. With a large list to choose from, there will be a chalet to suit you! 

 

You can choose from:

 

Les Menuries, Three Valleys

Chalets de Bruyeres– This perfect ski in/ski out location is right at the bottom of the piste. The gondola at the backdoor will take your straight up to 2850m! Whilst your there, have a go on speed mountain (suitable for children and adults), dine out for one night and try some traditional French cuisine and maybe even treat yourself to a spa day at the wellness centre next door. 

La Tania, Three Valleys

Chalet Christine, Titania or Morgane– Ski through the trees in this great south facing resort with great access to the whole of the Three Valleys. These chalets are close to everything. La Tania is a pedestrianised resort so you are only 5 minutes away from the piste, a lift or a bar! 

La Plagne, Montchavin – Paradiski 

Chalet Dolomites– this chalet is quirky but in a great location, only 2 minutes away from the lift that takes you straight up to the Vanoise Express. This gives you great access to 425km of piste. Watch your little ones learn to ski in the snow garden from the balcony and enjoy a soak in the hot tub of an evening. This traditional village has everything you need for a perfect ski holiday!
