Welcome to Powder Byrne. We are an award-winning specialist ski operator with programmes throughout Switzerland, Austria and Italy.

Everything's Possible With Powder Byrne

What makes us different is the level of personalised service our in-resort teams deliver and our private ski programmes for children, which provide the best instruction environment for little ones to thrive.

We’d love to tell you more about what we can offer your family who would like to experience the best of European skiing in Austria, Italy or Switzerland.

We work with a carefully selected group of resorts, which have been hand-picked because they offer the authentic Alpine experience that our clients crave.

We’ve been delivering seamless skiing solutions for individuals and families since 1985 and our experience of our resorts, hotels and private properties is second to none. 

Reasons to ski with Powder Byrne this winter

The ultimate introduction to the slopes for young skiers

Our Yeti Primer programme has been specially designed to allow active three-year-olds to enjoy their first experience on skis. Combining two hours of ski instruction each day with the rest of the time spent in our private crèche facility, our experienced nannies will ensure little ones love their first adventures in the snow. 

Tailor-made for families

Because all of our programmes, staff, ski instructors and guides are English-speaking and all our childcare programmes are delivered to UK standards, we can give all families the peace of mind that they need when embarking on a ski trip with their children. 

Off the slopes support

Parents receive daily feedback from our team about their children’s progress that day, about options for their own skiing the following day and general support for any other activities or bookings they want to make.  With our resort driver service throughout the evenings, families wishing to explore restaurants and nightlife in the resort will be fully supported.

Trust us to look after all the little details

With our extensive local contacts and deep knowledge of our resorts, we create bespoke experiences for our clients. For families looking to really experience an authentic Alpine holiday, we’ll ensure the holiday delivers on every front. Everything’s possible, and everything’s flexible to the client’s precise needs. 

Off Peak Skiing

There's no better time to take the little one's skiing than in the off-peak season, the older children have gone back to school, and the slopes are quieter than ever, giving your children the space and focus they need to enjoy the mountains at their finest. You can take advantage of lower rates outside of school holidays and know your child is in great hands in one of our award-winning children's programmes.

Client Feedback

What a fabulous holiday. PB attention to detail and removing all the aggravation of a ski holiday was superb. The whole PB team was excellent. The children loved them. Ski guiding was also really fun.


We have had a phenomenal ski holiday thanks to the PB team and incredible service and attention provided. Nothing was too much trouble - we've been spoilt beyond belief. Every person has been an absolute joy to co-ordinate with. We've simply had the best time! You can't improve - you're simply the best.


Nothing was too much, every request was met with a smile and a ‘can do’ attitude, from the ski guides to kids club to the resort manager. This was our first PB holiday but we are already making plans for our next!


Powder Byrne team were amazing. Couldn’t have been more helpful give our hospital stay. Helped us beyond expectation on their day/night off.


Our high points were the PB guides, who were brilliant, and great company. Our babysitter who the kids loved. The resort manager was brilliant despite being very unwell, she's a real trooper!


Another great PB experience. The Yeti manager was exceptional - a real credit to PB who made the holiday for our youngest son and therefore for us.
