Group ski holidays

Nothing brings people together like a group ski holiday.

Whether it's bonding with friends, taking time away with family or giving your best friend a spectacular send-off into married life, ski holidays are the best way to socialise and make memories.

The real beauty is that not all of you have to be ski-mad to enjoy the week or ski weekend. Some of the most memorable days are spent sitting on sun terraces, dancing on tables or sprawling around the fire in a cosy alpine chalet.

Group ski holidays also make for the ultimate corporate trip, giving colleagues the chance to loosen up and enjoy each other's company.

Getting things right

Getting a group ski holiday off the ground, though, is no mean feat.

First, you need to choose a resort that suits your group. Some resorts are better for mixed ability groups, others are best for beginners. Some groups are only interested in the best resorts for après-ski...

Whatever you decide, you need to find the right kind of accommodation, arrange transport and organise lift passes, equipment and maybe ski lessons too.

This burden of responsibility often falls on one person's shoulders, so we've designed a service to make the whole experience a reassuring breeze.

"TOP customer service!!!"

I approached Packed with a work project, searching for a Ski trip for 50 people. Right from the beginning the customer service was super, within a couple of days I had 2 trips that fitted the criteria perfectly. Due to the nature of my job I was unable to progress quickly and was back & forth with questions and requests, but nevertheless Ed Mellor continued to be professional, extremely helpful and patient. There was never a delay is receiving responses to my many emails.

"Simple, fast and super helpful"

I saw an advert on Instagram and thought it’d be worth a shout as I was having a hard time booking a ski trip for myself and 6 mates. From start to finish it was easy messaging through WhatsApp and they found brilliant deals for us. Would happily recommend to anyone thinking of using them. Ed was fantastic and super fast to reply and keep my up to date

I've booked with My Swft for the last 3 years, 4 holidays in total. This year was even better. The new online booking is really simple to be able to share with the group and get people to choose a location. Then everyone managing their own booking makes it even easier for the group leader!

Adam Burrage

Top tips for an awesome group ski holiday

As we've said, planning a group ski holiday isn't always a piece of cake. There are lots of things to consider and it's not unusual for things to get a bit overwhelming. Thankfully, we're brimming with ideas on how to make your group ski trip unforgettable.

Book early (if you can)

First things first, don't leave it to the last minute, especially really large groups. Start planning well in advance and you'll get what you want. The best chalets get snapped up quickly, but you'll find many come with low deposits and you can spread the cost quite nicely.

Consider name-changes

Depending on what you book, name changes are free with some providers, with the cut off date typically anywhere between 4 to 10 weeks before you travel. This is particularly useful for sports teams or larger groups where you're not certain of the uptake until nearer the time. (Incidentally, if you are uncertain of the group size and want to add people on later, a big hotel or chalet-hotel is often the easiest approach to take).

Choose the right resort

The resort you choose is critical to making the most of your trip. Not every resort is the same; some are quieter and better suited to families, while others have amazing après ski, for those keen to split their time between the bar and the mountain.

Choose the right slopes

There's also the skiing itself to consider. You don't want to venture all the way to a resort with no decent nursery slopes if your group are all complete beginners. Same goes for advanced skiers - a lack of challenging black runs or off-piste opportunities could see them quickly bored.

If you're not sure which resort to pick, we can help - send us a quick message with your requirements and we'll steer you in the right direction. If in doubt, book a mixed ability resort like one of the ones we've listed further down this page.
