stepski is a professional ski company and snowsports club, run by some of Britain's highest qualified ski teachers.
we have created a ski club, which utilizes the very best of what tour operators have to offer, creating our own tailored winter sports holidays. Stepski has in this way found a successful format with a tried and tested programme that has brought nothing but praise from its members.
membership to the stepski club is free and has many worthwhile features, including discount on equipment, clothing, holidays and tuition.
there is an advice line, which you can use to get information on: where to go, what you need and what to spend.
as national ski teachers, we at stepski have assisted thousands of British skiers to achieve their goals on the mountains of Europe. Over the past 17 years, we have had the experience of working in several different countries organising snowsports trips, guiding and ski teaching. In our professional capacity we are called upon to train resort staff and instructors for many of the creditable travel companies. This has provided us with a unique insight into the winter sports industry, which benefits our club members by giving us the upper hand in quality, value and versatility.
our combined knowledge of ski resorts means we can take our members to places best suited to their needs. We do not need to rely on brochure information to tell us about ski runs, night life, accommodation and suitability to different groups - because we already know - having worked in or tried out all the resorts we travel to.
we tailor all our trips to the requirements of the people coming along. You tell us what you need and we will organise it for you.
the accommodation usually divides up into ski and apres-ski chalets. The ski chalets are usually occupied by families with young children or the more enthusiastic skiers who require quieter evenings. The apres-ski chalets tend to be occupied by singles or groups of friends who intend to experience a little more night life. (When booking directly with a major travel company, this aspect is just left to chance.)
the ski guiding and tuition programme is also tailored to the abilities and time constraints our members require. i.e. mums and dads can have their ski school at the same time as their children, as can couples of different abilities.
we are not a travel agent, we are a snowsports club run by professional skiers, for snowsports enthusiasts, covering all abilities from beginner to instructor.
If you chose to come along on one of our trips, you can expect great company in a relaxed and friendly environment. - all our bookings are with ABTA and ATOL bonded companies.
prices from £295

stepski club holidays have many benefits over travelling independently. You will be looked after not only by a resort representative, but also by our stepski expert who is a highly qualified and experienced ski professional.
for our club trips we have searched out excellent accommodation which are usually well appointed chalets or a club hotel. We always try to accommodate similar group types together, by using our system of ski and apres-ski chalet types. Our chalets always have a warm and friendly atmosphere enhanced at the dinner table each evening by the shared meal prepared by our chalet staff. Our chalet staff will take care of the basic cleaning, cooking and washing up, so that you can relax and concentrate on making new friends.
we take skiers of all abilities on our club trips, so you are never short of someone to ski with. We also encourage particular meeting points on the slopes, which are usually mountain restaurants, as we find this enhances the social atmosphere of the party. - we pride ourselves on being able to cater to the needs and wants of all individual parties, while following our principles of keeping you safe to enjoy your holiday, and improve your skiing.
All of our club trips are underwritten by ABTA and ATOL bonded companies for your protection and peace of mind.
if you organise a group of 6 or more, we can offer you a discount or free places, depending on the size of the group. Full information on group discounts is available at time of booking.
stepski takes the hard work out of organising a ski trip for your friends. All you have to do, is decide who is coming, collect a deposit and leave the rest to us. This takes the headache out of chasing friends for the balance and required details. We can even add to your party after the initial booking, should other people want to come along.
Exclusive chalets are available for groups, or you can join the main party, depending on your requirements.
If your group wish to travel on a different date, or to a different resort than our club trips, you can still chose from one of the 370 chalets that Stepski recommends in Europe, North America or Canada.
many companies offer discounts for kids, but they are very hard to come by and usually mean booking over a year in advance. Stepski guarantees discounts for all child places on our club trips. All children 16 or under are eligible for stepski discounts. There are often extra discounts for children 11 and under, and under 2s go free.
the accommodation is planned for the suitability of different aged families, which means that some older kids can have their own rooms, while the younger ones share with mum and dad. The chalets are also divided into ski and apres-ski chalets, so that those who intend to retire early will not be disturbed.
as a family you will want to spend time together on the slopes, but it is normal for all to be of different standards. Stepski academy organises its ski lessons for the different standards to take place at the same time of day, which means there are no problems with dropping off the kids. The whole family can then also take advantage of our ski guiding programme.
as our classes are smaller than the local ski schools and are hosted by friendly British instructors, with only the highest qualifications, the kids will have a great time while getting the attention they deserve. Mums and dads can have the peace of mind to concentrate on their own lessons or skiing.
crech facilities can be arranges before departure, and early meal times for the little ones are no problem.
single parent families are still eligible for stepski discounts.
with stepski there are no single supplements, as long as you are prepared to share a twin room with someone of the same sex.
as a single traveller you will just join the rest of our group in an apres-ski chalet, where the party atmosphere is great for making friends.
on our club trip there will be other skiers of the same standard and ability as yourself, which means you never really have to ski alone.
as a couple you will have the choice of what chalet type you require, either a ski chalet or apres-ski chalet. You will have priority for en-suite facilities as we assume you would appreciate the privacy.
if you and your partner are of different skiing standards, stepski academy will organise your ski lessons for the same time of day, so that you can free-ski together.
On our club trips, there will be other skiers of your standard, that you can join on the slopes, if there is a large difference in standard between you and your partner.
