Farewell First Choice Ski

Teresa Fisher

First Choice Ski – the popular British family ski holiday tour operator – is being dropped for the 2012/2013 ski season as the company joins forces with its sister company Crystal Ski.

As from May 2012, First Choice is now making their holidays all-inclusive. That means flights, transfers, accommodation, three meals a day, unlimited drinks and hotel activities and entertainment will be standard within all First Choice All Inclusive packages.

Don’t worry if you always book your annual family ski trip with First Choice Ski, and have found your perfect family ski holiday formula. All its existing ski properties will simply become part of Crystal as from now.

Crystal is the UK’s number one ski operator, with 28 years of expertise. It is part of TUI Travel, the largest holiday company in Europe. They are the biggest operator, with more staff in resort than anyone else, the most destinations and the largest range of resorts and accommodation to suit all budgets, group sizes and tastes.

What’s more, they offer flight departures from 17 local airports across the UK – more than any other operator. All their flights are protected under the ATOL scheme (which means – in the event of the collapse of an airline – you will not lose money, nor will you become stranded if you are already overseas).

Pepi Penguin Club

They also pride themselves on offering one of the best childcare programmes in the Alps, with options ranging from all-day kids’ clubs to evening sitters. Crystal Ski already has some great offers for 2012/2013 on its website for early bookers. Get your family ski holiday planned early to benefit from their excellent early booking discounts, which include 2 for 1 ski/board hire; 2 for 1 ski carriage; and a 25% discount off six full days of childcare with both their Whizz Kids (4-11 yrs) and Pepi Penguin (6 months-4 yrs) kids’ clubs.
