General:

Will there be snow?

We have chosen resorts for their excellent snow records throughout the season. There are also excellent snow making facilities/snow cannons in all of our resorts.

Single travellers & Under Occupancy supplements

All of our prices are based on twin occupancy therefore we have to charge under occupancy of any rooms which are not filled to this capacity. The price varies according to the chalet and date of travel rather then being a set supplement, so please call our office for a quote or use the live availability and booking section of our website.  Please note that Ski Beat have three rooms which are singles, Chalet Bartavelle (La Plagne), Chalet Marielle (Meribel), and Chalet Papillon 6 (La Rosiere) if taking the single room there is a smaller supplement, compared with taking a twin/double room.

What methods of payment do you accept?

You can pay by BACS (online transfer), cheque, Maestro, Switch, Solo (no charge), visa debit card (no charge), visa credit card (+2%) or Mastercard (+2%). Unfortunately we cannot accept any other types of card.
Once the Party Leader has paid the deposit, group members will be able to pay their final balance via their online booking.
Please note for last minute bookings we can only accept card payments as other methods may take too long to clear into our account.

Can we ski on the day of arrival or departure?

This season our flights times may allow for skiing on the day of arrival.
If you are making your own travel arrangements you may be able to ski on the day of arrival and the day of departure. In this case, your host will advise you where to store luggage and will provide a room for changing. Please note the chalets are not accessible before 9am on day of arrival or after 4pm on day of departure for independent travellers.

Chalet:

Can we smoke in the chalet?

All of our chalets are non-smoking, however Ski Beat staff will supply ashtrays on the balconies of the chalets as required.

Chalet Security

All of our chalets have a digicode lock - your chalet host will tell you the code on arrival and will explain how to operate the lock. We ask that you close all doors & windows securely when you leave the chalet, just as you would do for your own home.

Are towels provided and are they changed during the week?

We will provide each guest with a hand and bath towel. For environmental reasons, towels will not be changed during the week.

Are hairdryers provided?

We do not provide hairdryers in most chalets - please bring your own and don't forget your travel plug! The 2 chalets with hairdryers are the Cervin in Meribel, and Bouc Blanc in Les Arcs.

Creche:

Can I just pay for part of the week in the Creche/childcare?

The full 6 days childcare will need to be paid for, but if you do not wish to put your child in for the full week, please discuss this with the nanny on the first day (however no refund can be given for only taking part of the week).

What equipment do Ski Beat provide for infants (0-23mth)?

Ski Beat will provide the following equipment: Cots & cot linen, highchairs, breakfast & high tea. You do not need to pre-order these items as they are covered by the £110 charge for infants. This also includes a seat on the coach transfer. Please note: that child seats are not provided, this is due to the vagaries of French law.   There is no reduction in price if any of these items are not required / used. Fruit bowls are provided in the chalets.  Baby/Toddler packs will be pre-bookable for an additional charge.

Do I need to bring a pushchair?

It is ultimately your choice, but in most cases we say no: Do remember that for much of the season, pushchairs are not practical around resort: there is snow & ice, steps and hills!   Some guests do choose to bring them - they can be useful at the airport, and can be transported on our flights.  Should you find that you need a pushchair while in resort Ski Beat can hire one out to you at an additional charge.

Travel:

Can we pre-book seats on the flights?

You cannot pre-book seats on flights, as seats are allocated on a first come first served basis, therefore if you would like a particular seat we would suggest that you check-in early.
