You will be able to pre-order your lift passes once you have made your holiday booking. Ski passes can be pre-booked up until the Tuesday prior to departure. If you booked your holiday direct with Ski Beat you will have a booking reference beginning with DS or SB - please speak to your party leader who can give you access to the online system (or call us if your E-tickets have already been issued). If you booked your holiday via a travel agent, please contact them to pre-book ski pack items.
Prices can be reviewed on our individual resort pages - La Plagne, Les Arcs, La Tania, Val d Isere, Meribel and La Rosiere.
We will deliver pre-booked lift passes to your chalet, ready for your first day's skiing. Alternatively you can book your lift passes via the Ski Beat Resort Staff during the transfer to resort.
Certain lift passes, eg "Seniors", "Walkers" and passes for longer durations (7/8 day or 2 weeks) can only be booked via the Ski Beat Resort Manager on arrival.
Free lift passes are available for children under 5yrs in all of our resorts.
Beginners should check with ski school for advice on which type of lift pass to buy, as in some resorts beginners may not require a lift pass for the first day, or may only require a local area pass.
Photos: all of our resorts are now using the hands-free chip card, which means you can keep your lift pass safe in a pocket when going through the lift turnstyles. Most passes do not require photos - there are however a few exceptions, so please bring a photo if you require one of the following:
La Tania & Meribel - free passes. Les Arcs - Lift passes for +72yrs. Val d'Isere - passes valid for 8 or more days. La Rosiere - free child passes
Skiing on arrival / departure days This season our flight times do not allow for skiing on the day of arrival or the day of departure. Please remember that transfer times may vary due to flight delays and adverse weather, and you also need to factor in the time required for check-in, or getting through passport control and collecting your luggage - we cannot refund any part of a lift pass if not used. It is therefore most advisable to purchase a 6 day pass for your main stay, and then buy a day / half day pass in resort if you find you have enough time to make use of it.
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.
