Is the family ready to ski? Our ski holiday checklist

Clothes Aren’t The Only Thing You Should Pack

Your ski trip is right around the corner, have everything packed? While clothes are an obvious addition, some things such as ski insurance, lift passes, and airport parking can be easily forgotten. With our ski holiday checklist, you’ll be prepared for everything, so you can hit the slopes without worry.

Ski Insurance

If you haven’t yet arranged your ski insurance, make sure you have sufficient coverage. Regardless of your ski ability, we highly recommend pre-purchasing ski insurance. In addition to covering medical expenses and personal liability, you are insured for lost baggage, lost skis, and travel delay. As an added bonus, a family of 2 adults purchasing insurance receive all children up to the age of 21 covered free of charge.

Childcare & Nursery

We strongly recommend that you pre-book your childcare, as we can’t guarantee that we can accommodate bookings on arrival in resort. This is particularly the case with Sprite ski lessons, where it is vital that you ensure that you have booked your children into the appropriate level of lesson for their ability, as moves often can’t be made in resort.

For children under the age of 2, travel cots, high chairs, and baby baths are included free of charge. These all await you in-resort to ensure your young family is comfortable and at ease for your holiday.

Lift Passes

Ensure you maximise your time on the slopes by pre-booking your lift passes with Esprit. We can deliver your lift passes directly to your chalet during your first breakfast. If you haven’t already, give our friendly reservations team a call on 01483 791 900 to pre-book your lift passes today.

Ski Hire

Have you pre-booked your ski/snowboard and boot hire for everyone in the family? If not, we can add this on for you, then you will be escorted to our partner ski-hire shop by your Esprit Resort Representative upon arrival. Eliminate the stress of sorting out ski gear and get on the slopes quicker.

Check out our fantastic Family Savers deals such as FREE ski, boot and helmet hire for children! Please note, these offers must be pre-booked at least 6 weeks prior to departure and are not available locally.

Getting To The Airport 

Need to sort out airport parking? We can help: You can pre-book your parking and save up to 35%. Don’t fancy driving? Get a quote for a minicab to the airport – you can even specify your ski luggage.

We recommend checking in at least 2 hours before the printed departure time on your e-tickets for your flight. Before you head off on your ski holiday, make sure to read through our pre-departure information.
