A to Z of Resorts
Being a VIP means you get to choose from an A to Z of Europe’s top ski resorts, from Alpe d'Huez to Zermatt. Alpe d’Huez, known as The Island of Sunshine, is one of the oldest ski resorts in France and today its Quartier des Vieil Alpe has the character and charm of an old mountain village. Its beginners’ plateau, glaciers, varied terrain and state-of-the-art lift system make it a skiers’ delight. Zermatt, meanwhile, dominated by the Matterhorn, is a car-free town that blends rustic Alpine charm with discreet A-list appeal. The skiing is extensive and varied, with more than 300km of the highest north and west-facing slopes in Europe.
Fun for all the family
Families can rest assured VIP SKI ‘s priority is to create a dream holiday for the children, too, complete with sledging, husky dogs, ice caves and climbing walls, not to mention snowballs and hot chocolate trips!

It’s all about putting family value at the heart of luxury holidays.
