WHO ARE ALTITUDE HOLIDAYS?

AltitudeHolidays.com was established way back when the earth was still cooling in 2000.  The three people who head it up have several hundred years (nearly!) of experience in the ski industry between them!

Chances are between them they have skied in all of the ski resorts that are on this site and if we haven’t please send an invite to us now! We love exploring new ski resorts!

The company was founded back in 2000 by Rich Evans with two catered chalets in Courchevel 1650. In 2004 the company moved away from The Three Valleys and chalet operating and based itself in Les Carroz, Le Grand Massif as it switched to act as a travel agency specialising in ski holidays and packed our guests off to ski resorts across France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy...

In 2013 things changed as it became part of Snowcapped UK and using the marketing expertise of James Gambrill developed to offer ski chalet and other owners a great platform to advertise their properties.

In 2015 Rich Evans was brought back into AltitudeHolidays.com.

Run by ski industry professionals with over 35 years of experience in the world of skiing, Altitude has a unique website and will be expanding into new resorts and offering a hand picked selection of the worlds best ski holidays.

We look forward to helping ski company owners provide great holidays for people looking for ski and snowboarding breaks.

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.
