When To Travel

This Winter

We are skiers ourselves; we understand how to make your skiing holiday work, and we have the knowledge and experience as parents and as leaders in our field to add tremendous value to your skiing. No matter when you decide to go, we can give you the ski holiday of a lifetime.

Christmas and New Year

Experience the magic of the mountains in your own winter wonderland this December and enjoy the ultimate festive celebration. We’ll take away all the usual hassles by managing your itinerary and arrangements throughout.

Enjoy the most relaxing Christmas ever with none of the usual preparations and household chores! We can oversee your plans, from forwarding luggage and presents in advance, to magical sleigh rides and of course your skiing arrangements in our bespoke programmes.

Along with the traditional Powder Byrne Big Family Christmas on the slopes, all of our hotels offer Christmas services to keep the whole family happy. The mountain villages come alive over the festive season and many of our hotels host wonderful events for you to enjoy with your family.You’ll be invited to our Christmas lunch party on the slopes with all the trimmings and a special visit from Father Christmas, too.

February Half Term

Being the most popular time of travel for many families ensures that the February half term break is consistently over-subscribed in many of our popular destinations. If you are considering travelling during this time we urge you to plan ahead and contact us to secure some options as soon as you are able.

In addition to scheduled flights, we secure our own private aircraft exclusively for our clients over the February half term holiday. At a time when airlines and airports are stretched to capacity, we can offer you an ideal alternative. With Business Class specification, additional luggage allowances and menus selected by us, we’ll also manage your family’s seating requirements so you all stay together on the plane. You’ll even have a dedicated check-in desk just for your Powder Byrne flight. Contact us to find out more.

Our bespoke children’s ski programmes and dedicated resort services are in full swing during the February half term holidays and kids really enjoy the buzz of our programmes and the chance to meet with friends old and new both on the slopes and in our supervised evening activities. Parents will enjoy the social side of our complimentary ski guiding service, with lunches in the best of the mountain restaurants arranged each day by your ski guide, convivial afternoon-teas in your hotel lobby and a huge choice of options for evening dining.

Easter

With longer sunnier days and spring skiing conditions, many argue that Easter is the preferred time to escape to the mountains, particularly for younger skiers who will enjoy the warmer temperatures on the mountain.

We select the pick of the crop of high altitude resorts and present these to you with our dedicated resort service and unique skiing programmes. Choose from a range of accommodation options to suit your family’s needs.

Ski Weekends

Let us fast-track you to the slopes for the ultimate ski weekend, and benefit from our knowledge and experience and indispensable concierge service. We’ll be with you at every step so you can concentrate on your skiing.

Our team will give you the inside track and recommend the best ideas for your party. As well as pre-arranging your lift passes and making your equipment rental arrangements, we’ll provide you with detailed information about your chosen resort, and assist with all necessary reservations prior to your departure. Seamless ski weekends could not be easier!

In selected locations our resort based team will take care of you from the moment you arrive. Our ski mangers will provide complimentary ski guiding for the group so you don’t waste a moment on the slopes, they’ll make lunch reservations and oversee ski instruction or other activities as you wish. They’ll whisk you off to the slopes each morning and provide resort shuttles throughout your stay so you can enjoy your precious weekend away.

Large Groups

The first clients we welcomed in our inaugural season back in 1985 were groups of friends looking for powder skiing in Grindelwald. Much has changed in the decades since, but our focus on delivering the highest levels of quality, flexibility and service for skiers remains.

Whenever you are planning on travelling, we have options to suit larger groups of friends and family, either in our hotels or private properties. A number of our hotels offer interconnecting rooms and suites that can be privatised for large groups to allow an increased sense of privacy. Our private properties offer a great deal of flexibility with multiple bedrooms that can be set up as twins or doubles, as well as smart bunk rooms with full size beds to comfortably accommodate older children and adults. Combined with private spa facilities and your own well appointed boot room, you can enjoy enhanced privacy whilst still experiencing all the Powder Byrne resort services that contribute to the overall success of your holiday.

Outside the busy school holiday weeks our dedicated resort teams look after skiers in search of quieter slopes and the best value flights and accommodation options. Our ski guides are busy welcoming couples and groups of friends, hosting them on the slopes, ensuring they enjoy all the best elements of their chosen resort. Our drivers are on hand for private transfers and local shuttles providing additional support, completing a service that is designed around your needs, yet is as flexible and discreet as you require.

Low Season

For the best value, flexibility and the quietest slopes, it goes without saying that it really pays to avoid school holidays if the option is open to you.

If you are skiing with infants our pb crèche service is available on a complimentary basis for selected weeks outside school holidays. This represents considerable value for fully qualified childcare in our excellent crèches and is available 6 days of the week so you needn’t miss out on your skiing. Our Yeti Primer programme is available outside school holidays in selected resort for 3-4 yar olds. With mornings in the care of our specialist instructors on the nursery slopes and afternoons in our crèche with our qualified nannies, we’ll ensure their first taste of skiing has them raring to return again to Yetis the following year.

We have a fantastic portfolio of hotels in a selection of resorts, each offering something uniquely different. As skiers ourselves we know our resorts intimately and can recommend the best options for you, combining our dedicated service and support on the slopes. We’ll work with you to create the ultimate itinerary for your party and our ski managers are on hand in many of our resorts to oversee your skiing plans and to provide complimentary ski guiding, shuttles to and from the slopes and much more.
