Frequently Asked Questions

I've not skied in a while, does that matter?

Not at all - we split the skiing groups broadly by ability - the trip historically has catered for people who've only done a few days on the slopes, right up to seasoned powder-hound veterans. You'll be fine.

When does booking close?

Booking closes at the end of November 2021. After that, you'll have to wait until the 2023 trip, or consider joining HQR Sail (more information on that soon)!

When do I make the final payment?

The final payment must be made by 30th November 2021.

I don't know who I'll be bringing, is that a problem?

Not at all. You can book the space now, and confirm the names of those travelling later. Travellers' names need to be confirmed 6-8 weeks before we travel.

Is the hotel ski-in, ski-out?

It is indeed. We are perched right on the edge of the slopes, ready to access the entire ski area without needing to carry your equipment any further than from your heated ski locker to the terrace outside.
