New Year With Ski Olympic

Chillin!

Ski hosts Mel & Tash take ‘time out’ after spending the day guiding guests around the ski slopes of Vallandry & Les Arcs.

The girl’s both work for award-winning independent tour operator Ski Olympic, a Doncaster based company offering ski & snowboard holidays to top resorts in the French Alps.

Myself and the family enjoyed are fourth stay at the company’s Chalet Hotel La Foret over the New Year break. Located in Vallandry it makes up one of the six separate villages making up Les Arcs. The area linked with La Plagne by the fantastic Vanoise Express, a double deck cable car linking the two resorts, makes up the Paradiski area, one of the biggest resorts in the world!

If your considering a winter ski holiday in the French Alps then look no further than Ski Olympic, I cannot recommend them highly enough from their attention to detail, delicious food & drink, friendly staff and excellent ski hosting service.

The npower Football League U13 Girls Cup really champions the future of women’s football and the opportunity to play in front of a huge crowd at Wembley Stadium is an absolute dream for any footballer.’
