Below are just a few examples of the many new ways we have found to make your ski holiday spend go further than ever next winter. Every resort page and most individual hotel descriptions show exactly what savings are available:
Following the popularity of our chalets and Chalet Hotels introduced last winter, we have expanded our range further in 2012 - 2013 with 4 brand new chalets in St. Anton: Albona, Rendl, Gampen and Kapell Mountain Lodges and 19 new chalets and 3 Chalet Hotels in France. To name but a few we are charmed to have the lovely Chalet Sarsonnet in La Plagne, Chalet Julien and Chalet Marcel in Les Arcs, Chalet Hotel Le Dôme in Tignes and Chalet Anais in Val Thorens; plus the specifically built and designed for Inghams Chalet Hotel du Montet in Val d’Isère, as well as the Chalet Hotel Les Cimes in Alpe d'Huez and Chalet Hotel Des Guides, Cervinia, Italy.
Offering unbeatable value in great locations across Europe, our 14 Chalet Hotels and 70 chalets are run by our friendly and professional Inghams hosts, guaranteeing you a warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere in some of the best resorts in the Alps.
See our chalets and chalet hotels page for a full list, from our big flagship ski-in/ski-out Chalet Hotel in St Christoph to smaller, traditional chalets in favourites such as all the Three Valley Ski resorts, La Plagne, Les Arcs, the Italian Dolomites and Zermatt, our range covers properties of every shape, size and location.
The best accommodation we have ever had on a skiing holiday! The variety of food was really good and the staff were very friendly.'' S. Silvester, Chalet Hotel St. Christoph, February 2012
