Crystal Ski Holidays Winter 2013/14
A skiing holiday is about more than just skiing. Since 1981 we've been finding the best mountains to ski and the best resorts to spend time in. Whatever it is you're looking for in a ski holiday you'll find it in one of our 130+ resorts.
When it comes to superb snow quality and perfectly pisted runs, you can't beat Norway. It's a beginner and intermediate's paradise, and yet manages to still offer challenges for the more advanced skier too. Off the slopes there's friendly hospitality, great food plus some incredible winter activities.

Crystal Ski in-resort service
We're dedicated to making sure your holiday runs like skis in fresh powder. There's plenty of ways to get in touch with us before you go and once you arrive. And we've got some great things to get you excited about your holiday.
Lift passes, lessons and equipment hire
We've got everything you need to get on the slopes whether you're a beginner or a pro. From that all important lift pass, a range of equipment hire and tuition no matter what ability you are. We've also got great value lift pass bundles as well as first-time ski and board packages, or improver packages for those looking to progress.
We're working with our hotels to reduce the effect we have on the environment. In fact, we are one of the first holiday companies to ask all our hotels to sign up to Travelife or an equivalent scheme, which award hotels for doing their bit in the environment and local community.
We're passionate about working with the charity Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK). You can do your bit too by donating £1 when you book your holiday with us.
