Daunted by all the world class resorts?
When organising the perfect ski trip, arguably the most important thing to do is choose the right resort. With so many differing world class resorts located in the Alps the task can prove daunting.
Here are the factors that we feel at Corporate Peaks; need to be taken into consideration:
The Ski Terrain: Not all resorts have mixture of green, blue, red, and black runs that will leave you spoilt for choice. Some are more catered to beginners, and some can prove quite challenging. The size of the ski area is important too, smaller resorts can easily be covered by experienced skiers in a couple of days.

Aprés/nightlife: Whilst some prefer a quaint village to hang up their ski boots at the end of a hard days riding, followed by some well-earned spa treatments, many come away to ski hard and party harder. Resorts will vary from family orientated to ‘Ibiza in the Alps’ style resorts playing host to lots of live music and even festivals. There is also a variation on Apres/nightlife ratio too and our coordinators are experienced and qualified to make the essential resort recommendation for your event.
Food: Generally local mountain cuisine and will vary depending on whether you’re in France, Italy, Switzerland, or Austria. There is now an excellent variety of high end restaurants offering ‘chefs table experiences’ to tasty Tartiflette stands in the streets. Not to mention the homemade fresh pasta or game favouring resorts of Italy.
Budget: Fancy heading to Switzerland or Lech and holidaying like a Royal, expect a hefty price tag. Resort costs vary according to terrain size and popularity as well as many other factors. In our professional opinion Italy is by far the most cost effective way to ski the Alps; as the in resort costs are significantly lower to the ‘powerhouse resorts’ France and Austria do offer the greatest variation in accommodation costs however the prices in resort will generally stay the same (more or less)
Accommodation: Whilst many of resorts have a mixture of accommodation. Some are more made up of apartments, some hotels, and others mainly chalets.
