Can I book at the last minute for a better deal?
We are not a ski company so we are not in the position to give better deals. Last minutes deals are always cheaper, but if you are concerned with what you will eat, then you have to book in advance.
There is always the possibility that someone will drop out at the last minute, in that case, we may be open to offers on that place, so drop us an email, but do not bank on comming
How soon should I book?
As soon as you can? Trip remain somewhat fluid for a while and the chalet may change to accommodate more or few guests.
You may suddenly find that the trip becomes full because we have settled on a smaller chalet, and it is only by people actual booking we can make firm plans and chalet commits to the ski companies we use.
Are all your guests vegetarians or vegans?
No, but most are
Are guests normally couples?
A whole mixture, sometimes they come as small groups, some time as couples and sometimes as individuals.
Do I need to be an expert/beginner?
Most skiers tend to be intermediates, but there are aways some beginners, and Sophie would like a few more experts to ski with.
I've got all my kit and tickets, anything else I should buy?
Yes, a Respect the Mountain wrist band
Should I fly or go by train?
Go by train - its better for the evironment, it more reliable, its more confortable, its more socialable, you'll typically get to the chalet before those who fly, but, its it can be slightly more expensive. Nearly all our skiiers go by train.
Obviously, you are organising the trip, what do you do when we start the holiday?
We become just another guest. Any problems you have with the chalet, where to ski, hiring equipment etc is a problem for the chalet's staff, not us.
Our only duty is to work with the chalet staff to maintain the quality of the food.
What profit do you make from these trips?
None, any money rasied from the full chalet discount is put back into other veggie activities, such as Once Voice for Veggies at WOMAD
Why do you run these trips?
This is why.
