The Ski Basics plus+ service offers exceptional comfort, impeccable service in the most elegant chalet surroundings and fabulous locations. Many of our plus+ chalets are new-builds and are ski in ski out. Each of our plus+ Chalets are selected because of their classic, Alpine-chic interior. Every cosy bedroom is equipped with a modern en suite bathroom. The chalets are also fitted with a luxurious sauna or steam room for you to relax and unwind in after a hard day on the slopes.

We have tailored our plus+ service to match the elegance of our plus+ chalets. The plus+ experience goes above and beyond to make your holiday with us the most comfortable and fulfilling one yet. We find that our special touches make it extra memorable too so please read on to discover the plus+ Experience with Ski Basics.

Rise and Shine

  • Wake up each morning to a revitalising cup of tea or coffee brought right to your bedside.
  • A hot cooked breakfast from fluffy pancakes, silky eggs Benedict to the good old traditional fry up, will ensure that you will be fully satisfied for the day ahead. Your breakfast table will also be piled high with continental favourites, such as hot croissants, fresh bread, yoghurts, jams and a selection of cereals.

The mountains are calling

  • Grab a handful and fill your pockets with complimentary yummy ski snacks before you feel the fresh alpine air on your face. These chocolatey treats will keep you fueled throughout your big day on the slopes.
  • To keep you toasty on the chair lifts, ask your host to fill you a flask with a choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate so you can stay warm throughout the day.
  • When you come back in from a hard day on the slopes you can relax knowing that you’ll have toasty fingers and toes the next day. Each plus+ chalet has a boot warmer and your chalet host will ensure your gloves are warm and dry for the next morning!

Awaken your senses

  • Each Ski Basic plus+ guest will receive their own selection of deliciously fresh and zesty White Company products.
  • Citrus top notes combine with rose, jasmine and orange, to help ease those tired limbs and lift the senses after a long day on the mountain.
  • After a long hot shower, bath or sauna you can relax with the daily papers and catch up on the world around you.

plus+ dining experience

  • Your plus+ Dining experience is indulgent and delicious. When you have worked hard on the slopes all day we believe that a satisfying, wholesome and nutritious dinner is just what your body needs.
  • Your plus+ chalet cook will deliver a wonderfully personalised 4 course menu every evening that focuses on fresh, simple and quality ingredients.
  • To start every evening, you’ll enjoy drinks and canapés as you relax on the sofa by the roaring fire.
  • A selection of ripe and fruity reds and crisp fresh whites flow freely throughout your meal. A limitless supply of beer and soft drinks can also be found in every plus+ chalet for you to help yourselves whenever you fancy.
  • After dinner, to indulge further we’ll tempt you with a selection of local cheeses followed by Savoyard Génépi for those brave enough to try! If you have still have room, homemade truffles, tea and coffee will be served by the fire as you unwind for bed.

Amazed at the professionalism of all the staff and how the company is run. Excellent drivers and general service all round even providing toys and equipment for my 11 month old. Would recommend ski basics to everyone.
