Pre-booking lift passes...
We strongly recommend you pre-book your lift pass, equipment hire and tuition before you travel to save time and money. We cannot guarantee availability of tuition, especially during high season, unless it is pre-booked. All items must be added to your booking at least 3 days prior to departure.
Lift passes are pre-bookable for all our resorts. We give details of ski lifts under the 'Ski Packs' tab on our resort pages. In some resorts there may be more than one type of ski pass available, such as whole area passes or local passes. If none of the passes offered suits your needs, please book the pass you require upon arrival in the resort. First-time skiers (complete beginners) should check the notes under the individual ski pack price panels to find out if special passes are available locally.
You do not need a passport photo for your lift pass unless otherwise specified on the individual resort pages. A deposit or small charge (approx. €5) for lift passes may be levied locally in some resorts. Our prices refer to 6 days (other durations are available at the time of booking).
Great reasons to pre-book your lift passes
As well as ensuring convenience and the reassuring back-up of knowing your Inghams Representative is always on hand to resolve the slightest problem, pre-booking means
Beat the queuesPre-book your lift pass and you will have it on arrival or early on your first morning - no need to wait in a queue at the ticket office, meaning more time on the slopes!

Pre-booking your lift pass online
When booking online, you will be presented through the booking process with the resort-relevant options so you can book your ski packs at the same time as booking your holiday. Our Lift-Pass Price Guarantee applies to passes booked this way.
Pre-booking your lift pass after booking your holiday (but more than 2 weeks before travel)
Alternatively, ski pack options can be added after your holiday booking by calling our reservations department on 01483 79 11 22.
If ski packs or excursions are added after you confirm your holiday, you will be charged the price quoted by our reservations system valid at the time the ski packs (not the holiday) are booked. Some ski pack items/prices are subject to change. Our Lift-Pass Price Guarantee applies to passes booked this way.
Booking your lift pass when you arrive
You can also book the pass of your choice when you arrive at your resort with our local Representative. The price you pay is the local price you would pay at the lift pass office.
However you book, our Representatives in resort will help get your lift pass to you so you don't even have to go out and get it!
Please note that you don't usually need a passport photo for your lift pass unless otherwise specified. You won't need passport photos for resorts in the US, Canada, Andorra or Austria. A deposit or small charge of around €5 might be levied locally in some resorts for lift passes. Our prices usually refer to 6 day passes but there are more durations available - choose the best solution for your needs when you book.
Senior Citizens and Young People
Many lift companies offer senior citizen reductions similar to those given to youths. These can sometimes be pre-booked or may be purchased locally. Youth passes, if available, can be pre-booked. Check the notes under the individual ski pack price panels for special prices that may be available to pre-book or purchase locally. Proof of age may be requested in resort (e.g. passport).
Non-Skiers Lift Pass
Where special passes exist for non-skiers, we feature these prices under our pre-bookable ski packs on the resort pages. If no special pass is available to pre-book, we would recommend that non-skiers purchase suitable passes in the resort via our representative.
Ski & Board Saver Packs
Special ski packs are available in most resorts and these represent considerable financial savings over separate items.
Please note: Ski packs do not form part of your holiday package.
We pre-sell children's ski pack facilities in most of our resorts and special reductions are given in most cases. We advise that bookings for under 6's are made locally as, in the case of ski hire and ski school, special prices generally exist. In some resorts lift companies often allow children to ski free of charge. The age limits for children vary from country to country and are given for each facility in the 'notes' column of the Ski Pack panel for each resort (proof of age may be requested locally).
The age of your child given at the time of booking should be the age he/she will be at the time of your last day on holiday - not the age at the time of booking. See resort pages for details of our ski kindergarten packages for younger children.
We recommend the use of ski helmets in all resorts. These are provided free in Andorra, Lapland and many resorts in France, Austria, Italy and Switzerland when renting equipment (see resort pages for details). In Italy and parts of Austria (Salzburg and Upper Austria) it is compulsory for children (up to 13yrs inclusive in Italy and up to 15yrs inclusive in Austria) to wear a helmet on the slopes.
Where 2-for-1 offers are featured in your resort, these must be purchased against every person who is due to use the offer. If the offer is applicable against your booking, this will automatically be updated, and confirmation of the offer will be provided on your booking invoice. Please note, offers are subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.
14 Night Holidays - Europe
Clients booking a 14 night holiday but requiring ski pack facilities for 1 week only should book locally through our resort representatives.
In Canada we offer any duration of ski packs you require (minimum 6 days). Our ski pack prices refer to a minimum 6 days' duration with a 'one day add-on' for additional days required. Please see resort page for more details.
Terms and Conditions
All prices for pre-bookable items are shown in the relevant price panel on the resort pages. If ski packs or excursions are not booked when you confirm your holiday, you will be charged the price quoted by our reservations system valid at the time the ski packs (not the holiday) are booked. Some ski pack items/offers in this brochure may not be available in subsequent editions and prices are subject to change. Pre-booked ski packs do not form part of your package holiday contract with us and we do not accept responsibility for any service which is provided by the supplier as part of the ski pack. See booking conditions.
Cancellation in resort
No refund will be considered if you decide in your resort not to use any pre-booked ski pack items. In the case of illness or an accident, you must obtain a medical certificate to claim from your insurer when you return home. Refunds are not considered by Inghams on your return from holiday.
See booking terms and conditions for further information.
