The New Year 2015 / 2016 Ski Experience

Our aim is to make skiing at New Year 2015 – 2016 a special occasion for all. The ski slopes are open as normal over the New Year period, so whichever dates you choose you can be sure that our legendary service will be running to maximise your New Year ski short breakstime on the slopes and minimise the hassle.

We will pick you up from the airport, take you back to the lodge in less than hour to get your ski or snowboard equipment fitted and give you time for a few drinks at the bar before a 3 course dinner with wine. Enjoy the day’s skiing in La Clusaz and Grand Bornand, with our social ski team showing you the best runs and lunch stops, or we can arrange lessons for you. Return every afternoon to tea and homemade cakes and a chance to relax in the sauna or bar before the evening dinner and activities.

New Year’s Eve in the Aravis Lodge is a memorable affair! It has become tradition here to celebrate the New Year in style – you are invited to join us in dinner jackets (or suits/jackets) for the gents and evening dress or similar for the ladies. Dressing up should add a little something to the evening and always provides the local villagers with some amusement.

Skiing over New YearThe night starts in the Lodge bar with plenty of chilled bubbly before dinner. Dinner will follow drinks, consisting of a sumptuous hot and cold buffet with plenty of red and white wine. After dinner put on your poker face as the party continues with a casino evening where the ski team double as croupiers! Our very own fireworks display, open to the village too, will welcome in 2016 before continuing the party back at the lodge bar.

New Year’s Day will be a normal ski day, although with a slightly later cooked breakfast than normal.

Please don’t worry if you feel that your best DJ or dress won’t survive the ski bag packing. Any effort is always appreciated and helps make the celebrations a little different and, hopefully, a New Year to remember!

To see pictures of the Ski Weekender team and guests celebrating New Year’s Eve last year, have a look at our pictures on our Karibuni and Ski Weekender Facebook Page.

Don’t forget that we also offer Christmas Ski breaks – both weeklong and short breaks.

All our packages include as standard:

  • fully catered chalet accommodation;
  • flexible afternoon / evening airport transfers;
  • full area ski-lift pass;
  • our high level of customer service.
