Crystal Ski Holidays Winter 2014/15
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.
2 for 1 ski or board hire or carriage
The early skier catches the best powder and early bookers get some great added value. Whether you have your own kit or need to rent some for your ski holiday – if you book one set of skis or board, we’ll sort you out a second set of the same type for free. And if you are taking your own gear, simply add on ski carriage for you and you’ll get another one for a friend for absolutely nothing.
At a Crystal Chalet you'll find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and our chalet hosts are on-hand to ensure you get the best possible service. Enjoy big breakfasts, afternoon tea with homemade cakes and tasty evening meals with unlimited wine. Whether you're a group of friends, a family or couple - we've got a chalet holiday to suit, with chalets in France, Austria and Italy.
Free WiFi in all our chalets
We’ve joined forces with Purple WiFi to help you stay connected throughout your ski holiday when you stay in any of our Crystal Chalets.
Families and childcare
We know the importance of planning the perfect family ski holiday – right down to the last detail. This is why we’re making it easier than ever to choose when and where to go. We’ve got suggestions for family-friendly resorts with the best childcare, as well as great ski-school options. All that plus hotels that simply understand the individual needs of parents. Whatever the age and ability of your kids we’re sure we have something just right for you.
With over 20 years of experience, Crystal offers childcare in 15 of Europe’s top ski resorts. Available for families with children aged 6 months to 11 years old, our all-encompassing childcare packages offer stimulating, active and safe care.
Great for families
Our ‘Great for families’ collection features a range of hotels that really put your family’s needs first. Whether you’re after family bedrooms, child-friendly facilities or hotel-run childcare, there’s sure to be something to suit your needs. We’ve listened to your feedback and used that to help us identify the best family-friendly hotels, chalets and apartments across Europe and North America.
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, to 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.
Crystal Ski Plus
Back in 2009 we launched Crystal Ski Plus. It was created as a simple one-stop package including all of your essentials for a successful ski holiday. Flights, transfers, accommodation, lift pass and ski or board hire, or carriage – all for one great value price. They are still just as simple and still great value. Just choose where and when... book by 30 November 2014.
The drinks are on us
Everyone loves a free drink – keep yourself in liquid refreshment all week or get a few rounds in.
In many of our popular hotels we'll give you free hotel credit worth up to €100 each. You can spend it however you like in your hotel's bar or restaurant. It's a handy way to make your money go further on holiday, and a great reason to book your next trip now.
The deal depends on which hotel you choose, but needs to be booked by 29 September 2014, so get choosing your next holiday to save a few quid while you're on the slopes.
Whether you're a group of friends, family or even a large ski club, we can help you find your ideal group ski holiday. We've handpicked a selection of chalets, hotels and apartments with a large selection of rooms and availability, and plenty of social areas to relax in.
For groups of 10 people or more, we'll take the hassle out of organising with our specialist booking service, not to mention discounts on your holiday package and ski pack bundles.

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.
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.
