Quick guide to solo ski holidays

Obviously we suggest coming away with us and not even thinking about anything (or anybody) else! But we appreciate that there are other places to ski / board and we are confident that we’re pretty good at what we do so here’s a few other places / companies / forums you might be interested in…

Most chalet companies take solo travellers – but often you have to pay a supplement or you are in a chalet with families (think screaming kids), or you are in a hotel where it’s all too easy just to sit in your room and watch the telly.

Find a company like ours that specialise is singles ski / snowboarding holidays and solo travel – there aren’t many, basically us and Cold Fusion in Chamonix. There is also The Ski Gathering which is a collective of chalet companies that open their doors to solo travellers on certain dates and in several different resorts. Let us know who else we should see as competition! 🙂

The forums are a great place to find info on singles ski trips – you can join groups, some of the sites organise their own trips;

Billy Snow Mates is Facebook based and has loads of followers. A friendly (mainly snowboarder) group answers questions real quick about everything and anything – they have regular meetups at the various snow centres in the UK and have ‘Billy Bashes’ during the winter.

Snowheads is a forum and has a specific section for single skiers looking for ski buddies. It has a huge membership and pretty much any snow question you have can be or will already have been asked here. They also run ‘ bashes’ (not quite sure why the word ‘bash’ is so popular) and get big numbers going, skiers and boarders.

J2Ski is a great forum, I think quite ‘ski’ focused. They also have a solo skier thread. No bashes as yet – but they do have quite good forecasting including a ‘powder alarm’ which I love landing in my inbox. Exciting!!

MeetUp is a great website for finding buddies in all kinds of activities – from hiking to ultimate frisbee, from knitting to partying and of course skiing / snowboarding. You could even start up your own MeetUp and end up skiing / boarding for FREE! (click here for more info)

Solo ski trips are ace – a brilliant way to meet new like-minded, life-long friends. Don’t delay, just do it!
