Le Ski skips a season

Le Ski runs chalet holidays to Courchevel, Val d’Isère and La Tania – but not this season

Yesterday chalet operator Le Ski took the tough decision to cancel all holidays this season.

Nick Morgan, the Managing Director and co-owner (with sister Liz) said:

“We have taken the decision not to run any holidays this winter. There are simply too many obstacles to operating our usual high quality catered chalet holidays this winter so we are skipping a season.

We are contacting all our guests in departure date order to discuss their options and are operating the same 32 chalets in Courchevel, Val d’Isère and La Tania with London and Manchester flights and transfers next winter.”

With the UK in lockdown with leisure travel banned and French ski resorts closed until at least February, that makes a lot of sense.

Nick Morgan continued “For the first time in 38 years Le Ski will not take any guests to the Alps this winter. While this is sad, we felt we had no choice but to display some certainty and clarity for our guests, staff and suppliers. The vast majority of our amazingly loyal guests are happily deferring to next winter, which is already looking busier than ever. We are immensely grateful to our guests and chalet owners for their understanding, which enables Le Ski to remain a strong company.”

I have stayed with Le Ski many times in both Courchevel and Val d’Isère and always been impressed by the quality of accommodation and service. So I’m delighted that they will still be in business next year, unlike some of their rivals such as Ski Amis and VIP Ski which, sadly, have had to cease trading because financial problems resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tour operator Inghams (part of the Hotelplan group) also announced yesterday that it was suspending all holidays until the end of February – and that applies to sister brands Ski Total and Flexiski too. Way back in November it said that its family-specialist Ski Esprit would not be operating this season.
