“For those who love to get away to the beautiful mountains and relax in alpine paradise but who prefer to keep their feet on terra firma rather than zooming down the slopes, we’ve introduced our Mountain Host Programme to ensure that every moment of our guests’ holiday is packed with enjoyable experiences and activities for non-skiers.“
WHAT IS MOUNTAIN HOST?
We proudly present our exceptional, fully hosted, non-skier programme available during selected weeks at handpicked resorts. Our dedicated in-resort Mountain Host leads a meticulously planned five-full-day itinerary. Indulge in a range of captivating activities explicitly tailored for non-skiers. Under the guidance of our knowledgeable host, you’ll embark on exhilarating guided hikes, invigorating snowshoeing excursions, and engaging curling experiences. Immerse yourself in relaxation with rejuvenating SPA sessions and delightful hosted lunches. The resorts we partner with offer additional activities catered to those who prefer not to ski, ensuring an enriching and fulfilling stay. Our emphasis on outdoor activities means that participants should possess a reasonable fitness level, as a significant portion of the itinerary involves hiking, walking, and engaging in exercise surrounded by nature’s beauty. Prices for this extraordinary experience vary depending on the chosen resort, with a starting rate of £400 per person.
Our Client Concierge team will be in close contact with you before you travel to understand how we can best support anyone in your party who is not skiing. They will discuss all the options available in your resort and can help with pre-booking arrangements. There are many different options to consider depending on how active you wish to be, and we have lots of lovely winter walks to recommend so you’ll still experience the beautiful mountain environment. Once you arrive, our Powder Byrne resort team will run through your schedule and tweak any plans based on local weather conditions and our resort driver service will be on hand throughout and help to coordinate meeting up with skiers in your party for lunches on the mountain or apres-ski drinks.
Enjoying local guided walks
Enjoy the unique winter landscape around your resort by exploring one of the many guided walks or hikes. Each of our resorts boasts many miles of well marked walking trails, quickly getting you out into the silent snowy landscape. If you wish to go off the beaten track, we can arrange a snowshoe guide so you can explore the quieter parts of the mountain – highlights include discovering animal tracks, wildlife spotting and hot chocolate or lunch stops in cosy mountain huts.
Invigorating snowshoeing & Curling Experiences
Our expert guides will lead you on unforgettable journeys, unveiling hidden gems and sharing their knowledge of the surrounding environment. For those seeking a unique sporting challenge, our curling experiences provide an immersive introduction to a fascinating sport that blends athleticism, strategy, and camaraderie. Whether you’re a seasoned snowshoe or a curious novice, the snowshoeing excursions offer an opportunity to connect with nature profoundly.
Other local non-ski activities
There are many other activities for non-skiers to experience in your chosen resort. Choose from indoor or outdoor ice skating, horse-drawn sleigh rides, sledging and tobogganing. For those seeking a more relaxing and indulgent experience, many of the hotels and properties across our portfolio are home to world-class SPA and treatment facilities.
