There are various items which you need to arrange before the start of your holiday - these can be pre-booked online by logging on to your booking and clicking on the 'manage ski packs' link up until the Tuesday prior to departure. If you booked your holiday direct with Ski Beat you will have a booking reference, please speak to your party leader who can give you access to the online system. If you booked your holiday via a travel agent, please contact them to pre-book ski pack items.
All skiers & boarders will require a Lift Pass. You can order your lift passes online up until the Tuesday before departure. Your lift passes will be delivered to your chalet for your arrival. There are different rates depending on the different ski areas and your age, and most resorts now have the hands free chip system, making use even easier. Our prices are the same as the resort prices. See our Ski Pass page for more information.
Equipment Hire can also be pre-booked online up until the Tuesday prior to departure. We use specific shops in each resort with a good range of equipment and we have negotiated some great prices!
Ski School: We advise that you pre-book ski school, especially on peak holiday dates. As you know your specific requirements and ski schools offer different packages in each resort. If you have any questions about ski school, we ask that you contact and book direct with the ski school. Please let them know you are staying with Ski Beat, and the name of your chalet. For links to their websites, and more details, go to our Ski Schools page.
It is vital that you have proper ski Insurance for your holiday. Your insurance should be in place from the time you pay your deposits: most comprehensive policies cover cancellation in the event of illness or injury prior to departure.
When travelling within the European Union, it is recommended that you carry the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). If you need to utilise this card while on your holiday and where costs to insurers are shown to be minimised, the medical excess applicable under Ski Beat travel insurance is reduced to NIL. The EHIC does not pay for any rescue services. The quickest and easiest way to get an EHIC is to apply online
Please see our Ski Clothing page for links - it is cheaper to buy ski clothing in the UK as resort prices are high and very few shops hire ski clothes.
