Book Early for the 2014-15 Ski Season
Even though there’s still a long way to go this winter, especially with the huge snowfalls over the last couple of weeks, we’re delighted to say we’re now making bookings for the 2014/15 ski season.
For our pick of the best photography and videos from the current winter, take a look at our Latest Snow Photos page, and for more information on how to book your winter 14/15 holiday, read on.
2014/15 Ski Season – Book Early
Booking early allows you to get the very best flight prices, especially over the holiday periods, and most airlines will release flights around 11 months before the flights you need. That means we’re ready to book for Christmas and New Year holidays already and the Half Term dates will be ready very soon. Accommodation offers and availability will also be at their very best when you book early, we can book most accommodation options for the whole season already.
Secure your trip with a deposit
Once we have your itinerary looking just right, with the very best early booking offers, we can take a low deposit that secures your holiday. With that paid, we don;t take final balance until 10 weeks before you depart.
We can arrange your lift passes, rentals and ski school for most resorts and details for these will become available in the spring and summer months – we’ll pass the details on to you once we have. For most resorts we can add this on to your holiday balance and collect it with the final payment before you head off.
Some accommodation partners will not be able to guarantee your booking until a little later in the year, if this is the case we’ll let you know at time of booking. In this case we’ll take your deposit as usual and in the unlikely event we can’t confirm your chosen apartment we will offer a suitable alternative or refund your deposit if you decide not to go ahead.
We have some amazing offers for the 2014-15 ski season at our Fairmont Hotels in Whistler, Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise.

Looking for holiday in early February, 2015. Two adults one beginner, but both of us like hiking (in the snow that time of year).
Somewhere not so packed for beginner slop, but has good driving day trips around the area.
Breckenridge would make a good base. The long gentle Peak 9 green slopes with their fast 6-seater superchair are great for confidence building and subsequent progression to easy blues with speed restricted areas for beginners. The Ski and Ride School group lessons are excellent for every ability level – if a bit expensive. For the expert skier, the big Peak 8 alpine bowls and tree-skiing in The Burn area on Peak 10 and in The Windows and under the E-chair on Peak 9 and 6-Chair on Peak 8 should all be in good shape by February. Peak 7 is an intermediate hill with fun blue runs and a fast 6-seater superchair. There are 5 other great ski areas within easy driving distance and with free bus routes to Keystone, Arapahoe Basin and Copper Mountain. You will need a 4WD car to get to Vail and Beaver Creek and back in bad weather – unless Vail Pass is closed by heavy snow and jack-knifing trucks when you may get stuck there until late at night or even overnight.
