Group Ski Holidays: Friends and Mixed Ability Groups

Group Ski Holidays for Friends

There’s nothing quite like enjoying a day on the mountain with all your best friends. Discussing the amazing runs whilst on the chairlift back up, finding those quiet little spots for lunch or a picnic together, and of course partying the night away. The best ski resorts for friends’ groups have perfected the recipe over decades…

 

Val Thorens

Increasingly well known as a resort where the après ski is as important as the pistes, Val Thorens gets top marks for entertainment options. From La Folie Douce and 360 bar, where the party starts on the piste, to the enormous Malaysia nightclub where you’ll often see in the new day – VT has loads of options in close proximity. Lodging options are all close to the piste and with a variety of bedding configurations so you can make savings by squeezing more mates in a room. More spare Euros for après!

 

St Anton

St Anton feels like the place where dancing on table in ski boots was born. Visiting this resort, you’re never far from a party and the atmosphere is ideal for groups. A big ski area with a multitude of catered chalets makes St Anton a top choice for a whole chalet booking with friends. The resort’s tongue-in-cheek nickname of ‘St MANton’ might convince you one way or the other, but one thing’s for sure – you should definitely visit this legendary ski resort before you cast judgement.

 

Mixed Ability Group Ski Holidays

It’s common to have a wide range of abilities when booking a group ski holiday. Your group might have ski season veterans, beginners and everything in between. So the resort you choose needs to have skiing that allows you to all meet up on the mountain and maybe even enjoy a run all together by the end of the week.

 

Meribel

As part of the 3 Valleys (biggest connected ski area in the Alps), Meribel offers access to a huge variety of skiing and snowboarding options. As the ‘middle’ valley in the area it acts as a springboard to the slopes of Courchevel and Val Thorens, and an easy-to-navigate route home at the end of the day. Meet friends at one of the many après ski venues in the resort, including a World famous Folie Douce and the favourite of many – Le Rond Point.

 

Val d’Isere

One of the most famous resorts in the world of skiing and for good reason. Val d’Isere offers something for every type of skier. The huge Espace-Killy ski area (linked with Tignes) is a mix of cruisey blues, challenging reds and some seriously steep black runs. At the end of the day all the final runs funnel down into the main town which is vibrant with après and about as ‘classic Alpine’ as you can get, especially around Christmas and New Year. Many of our seasonaires go back year after year which is high praise indeed.
