your stay with ski basics

Our Services

Welcome to Ski Basics, we go above and beyond to ensure you get the most for your money and the best chalet ski holiday.

With 18 years of experience looking after guests in Meribel, we know we have the perfect chalet for you, can pick you the most appropriate equipment and recommend the best Meribel and The Three Valleys have to offer, on and off the slopes.

Our collection of beautiful chalets offer style, comfort and outstanding service that won’t break the bank.

Our staff are positive and passionate about making the most of your time with us. Every question you have will be met with a positive, can-do attitude, if we don't have the answer straight away, we'll always figure it out. Starting from your transfer to resort, and your ski pass delivery, we'll do our best to make every moment just the way you want it.

We can match your skills and desires on the slopes to the right ski school and instructors and our drivers will make sure you are there on time every day, stress free.

When it comes to hiring ski gear, we have teamed up with two of the best ski shops in the area to offer a huge range of choice with big discounts on equipment hire. With English-speaking staff, we’ll make sure you walk away with exactly what you want. Bag the best deals before you arrive and we can arrange for a handy drop-off/pick up service.

You’ll build up a great appetite skiing; and our choice of culinary experiences will ensure that you finish every day feeling happy and satisfied. With a flexi, classic and plus service you can dine in, take away or eat out wherever and whenever you like.

If you’re muscles are feeling sore or you simply want to pamper yourself, allow us to book you a sports massage, beauty or holistic treatments with professional experienced therapists to recreate the spa in the comfort of your chalet.

If you're a non-skier or feel like a day off the slopes there is plenty to keep you busy. Check out our things to do page for inspiration.

A Ski Basics holiday is far from basic, so much so our loyal following say we should change our name! We have impeccably high standards and our reputation for exceeding expectation is unparalleled.

So whether you're a regular, or this is your first taste of Ski Basics, contact us now so we can start planning a personalised holiday that's perfect just for you.

The flexi~ Experience

Every guest of Ski Basics is a VIP. The flexi~ Experience offers you the high standards of care and service for which Ski Basics is renowned, with added flexibility. Great for those who want more autonomy, but none of the hard work involved in self catering.

You will start each day in a flexi~ chalet with a delicious continental breakfast served to you by your host. After you have hit the slopes your chalet host will do the housekeeping and bake a delicious cake ready for afternoon tea after an action-packed day up the mountain.

In the evening, you still don’t need to cook; for an optional extra, you can choose from a menu of home cooked meals delivered to your chalet, ready for you to pop in the oven in your own time. This can all be arranged prior to your arrival. If you would like have lunch on the mountain, or eat locally on some or all evenings, your knowledgeable chalet manager can make recommendations and reservations. Or, if it’s local pizza and movie night, they have it covered, too. We make your choices easy so you can enjoy things your way, in your own time.

The classic Experience

Our classic Experience is the original Ski Basics experience that has gained a very loyal following over the years. Each one of our classic chalets has been hand-picked for their traditional alpine feel, superb location and charismatic interior.

You will start your day in a classic chalet with a delicious hot and continental breakfast served to you by your friendly host. Your host will ensure the chalet is kept sparklingly clean throughout your stay.

After your day on the slopes you will return to the chalet where a sumptuous afternoon tea will be waiting. This is your moment to kick back and relax in front of the fire whilst your host prepares a delicious three course meal. In our classic chalets the wine flows freely at any hour of the day.

The plus+ Experience

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 bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. Most of the chalets are also fitted with a sauna or steam room for you to relax and unwind in after a hard day on the slopes.

Wake up each morning to a revitalising cup of tea or coffee brought to your bedside. Then kick start your day with a hot cooked breakfast. See our food page for full details of the culinary treats in store.

You will spend your evening relaxing with aperitifs in front of the fire, whilst your host prepares a delicious four course meal. To indulge you further we’ll tempt you with a selection of local cheeses and if you still have room, homemade truffles, tea and coffee will be served. Fine wine from an expertly selected collection and beer flows freely.

The plus+ experience goes above and beyond to make your holiday with us the most comfortable and fulfilling one yet.

I have used Ski Basics for the last 8 years and the standard of service, care and accommodation has improved continually.

Alex was our main driver. Super friendly, he could easily adjust his time to pick us up if we were running late. Nothing was a hassle for him.
