Fairmont Chateau Whistler – It’ll be hard to leave…

The Team August 1st, 2011

I was lucky enough to spend a few days at the stunning Fairmont Chateau Whistler in April and needless to say when my time was up, I didn’t want to leave…

Without a shadow of a doubt, this hotel deserves it reputation, it’s Whistler’s flagship property but it’s more than just another luxury hotel. It really does have a great slope side location – I don’t think I’ve ever actually stayed somewhere and been able to ski right back to the door, but you can here. I stayed in a Mountain View Suite which was huge and had great view of the mountains and Blackcomb slopes. I had a sitting room, 2 bathrooms and an amazing bed, it’s well worth the upgrade!

Where are you going skiing in 2011/12?

The Team March 24th, 2011

This season is still in full swing, and with record levels of snow in WhistlerMammoth and Colorado my feet are still itching to get some more turns in before packing away my boots.

However, I’ve also been tempted by some of next season’s early booking offers available in both North America and Europe. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler and the Westin Resort and Spa in Whistler have a superb 50% off early booking deal, resulting in some of the best prices around. These are proving very popular with many clients having taken advantage already for next winter. I have to say that I’m pretty tempted to get my ski holiday booked early too!

Superb March conditions in Whistler

Some of the French properties are getting involved as well and have released their rates for 2011/12 – the earliest we’ve ever seen. We’re delighted to offer 10%  off a range of luxury self catered properties including four in Tignes, a brand new property in Alpe d’Huez and a new property in the resort of Val Cenis, which is on the French/ Italian border and is a very exciting addition to our European menu.

Choices, Choices… If you’re looking to next season and want to get the best price, just drop us a line and we’ll let you know the latest offers. There’re certainly some crackers out there, and it seems that the topic of conversation at the moment is “Where will we go next year?”…

Some Amazing Offers for Next Season

Gareth February 23rd, 2011

We’re starting to make lots of bookings for next season already and it’s never been truer that the early bird catches the worm!

Many skiers and boarders have already saved up to 50% on their accommodation in our most popular hotels and bagged the lowest flight prices, especially on busy departure dates.  Flights are now available to book for Christmas and New Year (these will sell out in all but the most expensive seats pretty quickly) and have also just been released for the February Half Term which is the week of 11 February for most schools next year.

Whistler is leading the way with the best prices throughout the 2011/12 season – if you book early with Ski Independence you can save between 30% and 50% depending on where you stay and when you travel.

My pick of the offers right now:

We’re adding properties daily as we work on getting our clients the very best deals out there – call us on 0131 243 8097 and let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll do the rest, we’re committed to give you the best information and find you the best offer out there! Our 2011/12 brochure will be available in the summer but for all the latest offers, resorts and properties check out the website.
