New Lift Pass Service – Launched for Winter 2016/17
Hitting the slopes has never been easier with our new lift pass service!
Here at Ski Independence we know how important it is to be able to maximise your time on the slopes. That’s why we are delighted to unveil our new lift pass service which is available in a number of our French resorts. If you pre-book your lift pass(es) in one of the selected resorts, we will send your tickets to you before you travel*, saving you time and hassle in resort. Simply place the hands-free lift pass card in your jacket pocket and you’re ready to go! No queuing at the ticket office – just get on the first ski lift that takes your fancy.
We are offering this service in some of our top resorts this season: Val Thorens, Val d’Isère, Flaine, Samoëns, La Clusaz, Les Gets and La Plagne – and we plan to add this service to a number of additional resorts in winter 2017-18. Read the rest of this entry »

Most skiers have been at the same level for years; everyone’s comfort zone will be slightly different, but most commonly, good weather, comfy boots and a fulfilling breakfast contribute to enjoyable skiing. However, this season we want to move up a gear and improve! Hopefully this list of tips and ideal European skiing locations will help beginners, confident skiers and off-piste skiers to take their skiing to the next level. We’ve included suggestions of where to go, and even what you can do at home.
