Booking a holiday with us is easy – and that goes for everyone. We know that all you want to do is just hit the slopes and have fun with your family and friends, so that’s why, with Crystal Adaptive, we make it simple. We offer knowledgeable recommendations and a bit of extra support, so you can spend your holiday enjoying yourself.
Only you know what your exact requirements are, so on this page we’ve tried to provide as much information as we can so you can start planning where you’d like to go skiing. Take a look on the accommodation pages for more information about the specific adaptations made to hotels and rooms, as well as what types of disabilities the ski schools can teach.
When you’re ready to book, the Crystal Adaptive team will be on hand to provide you with any extra information you need, and to request rooms, plus any equipment and lessons.
Flights, transfers and accommodation are included as standard with all of our holidays. We’ll even arrange special assistance at the airport and adaptive transfers if needed.
We have a minimum requirement of adaptations in order to call an accommodation ‘wheelchair accessible’. However, we know from what our customers have told us over the years that not all disabilities require all adaptations to be made. Therefore, the accommodations which don’t have the minimum number are grouped in our ‘partially adapted’ programme.
If you don’t require any adaptations to your accommodation, but do require adaptive ski school, take a look at the Adaptive Ski School section below.
We really do appreciate your comments and suggestions, so if you think we could do anything better in regards to our adaptive programme, please let us know.
Take a look at the adaptive checklists on each of the hotel pages, or get in touch with our Crystal Adaptive team to make sure your chosen accommodation has the adaptations you need.
The Hotel Terra Nova is only 5-10 minutes from the lively bars and restaurants of Plagne Centre via hotel ramp and road. It’s also ski-in, ski-out, making it even easier to get on the mountain each morning. La Plagne, part of the Paradiski area, has long, wide runs and glacier skiing.
The Hotel Princesa Parc is a leading hotel in Arinsal, with modern and stylish rooms, a superb spa centre and a piano bar. It’s only 5 minutes down to the gondola, which transports you up to the Vallnord ski area. The ski school is amazing and the slopes are varied, too.
The Hotel Sport Village has a central location in Soldeu, and is even attached to the gondola, making it incredibly easy to get to the slopes. It’s also got an impressive spa and a comfortable bar. The resort itself is part of the Grandvalira ski area, with quality ski tuition and a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere.
The ski-in, ski-out Hotel Tango is modern and funky, with chic, spacious rooms and a vibrant après ski bar. Val Thorens is Europe’s highest ski resort, and part of the humungous Three Valleys ski area, with slopes stretching over 600km. It’s also known for its vibrant nightlife.

If you don’t need an adapted hotel, but you do need adaptive ski school, then take a look at our full range of accommodation in Arinsal, Beitostølen, La Plagne, Soldeu, Val Thorens and Whistler.
Please note that these holidays should still be booked through the Crystal Adaptive team. This is so that we can check availability of the ski school, whether they have suitable instructors for you and any other requirements you may have.
