French ski holiday operator Ski Amis is offering 25 per cent discounts on selected weeks and chalets over the season to celebrate 25 years in business.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to celebrate our 25th anniversary!” said Christine van Zadelhoff, from Ski Amis.

The company started with one small chalet in La Plagne Montalbert, and now has 19 chalets on offer across the Three Valleys and Paradiski areas. 

“When my parents started Ski Amis from scratch in 1989, I’m sure they never considered that the company would be still going strong in the family 25 years later!” said Christine.

“When [my husband] Ed and I took over in 2002, we certainly had the plan to grow it significantly and build on the reputation that had already been created and we are still doing that. We are a far cry from the little chalet in La Plagne Montalbert that slept just eight people – but we do still keep the personal touch and level of service that we had back then!”

In the beginning, Ed and Christine skied a lot with the guests. “I knew every single party leader personally,” she says. “Things have had to change of course now as with more than 4,500 guests a year that is no longer possible but we are still very much there in the background and training our resort management and our office team to carry on the same ethos. Here’s hoping the business is still going strong in another 25 years!”

Twenty five years to celebrate means 25% discount on selected chalets for the off-peak weeks throughout the season for bookings made before the end of October 2014. The offer applies to all weeks in January starting on 4th, as well as 7, 14 and 21 March and 11 or 18th April.

This offer is only available directly via the Ski Amis call centre and cannot be booked online - so call now on 0203 411 5439.
