Skiier on slopes

Welcome to our 2023 programme of holidays to top European resorts at very competitive prices.  We have great value ski carriage and lift pass deals on many of of the trips.  Bookings for the Les Arcs and Tignes holidays are open now, and the Val Thorens trip will open later at our AGM on 14 September 2022.  See you on the slopes!

All of our holidays include flights from Edinburgh, transfers to the resort and half-board accommodation.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! After running ESC's holidays since 2016, your holidays organised is knackered. We need a volunteer to take forward the holidays from the 2024 season onwards (even if it's just for one season), and ideally to manage the third 2023 trip. You can book for 2023 with confidence, as these will run whatever happens, but without volunteers, there will be no ESC 2024 holiday season. Full training for a smooth handover will be provided. Thanks everyone!

This ski-in, ski-out hotel is superbly located at the bottom of the mountain that gave it its name – the Aiguille Rouge. There's easy access to the fabulous Paradiski area, connecting both Les Arcs and La Plagne.  The rooms have balconies, and are simple yet well equipped, with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

A wide buffet breakfast will set you up for your big day on the slopes, and in the evening, refill your glass with the unlimited wine at dinner, and enjoy the weekly raclette night for a cheesy treat (your holidays organiser *loves* a cheesy treat).

The Hotel Tignes 2100 draws people back year after year, and it’s easy to see why. This modern hotel’s just a few minutes’ walk to the lifts, and is surrounded by amazing views – so you can watch the snow fall over the mountains from your room or sip a cocktail overlooking the frozen lake in the bar.  It’s got a chic-meets-cosy look, with lots of low lighting, soft sofas and earthy colours. And there are plenty of spaces to relax – play board games in front of the fire in the lounge, get stuck into a good book in the library or wander down to the wellness area to drift between the hot tub, sauna and Turkish bath.  Food-wise, you’re in for a treat too. The kitchen specialises in a mix of French, Italian and Swedish dishes, and the stone-baked pizzas are some of the best in town.

Ski hire

We have a great selection of Club ski and board equipment to hire at competitive prices.  Combine this with our discounted lift pass and free ski carriage deal  for outstanding value for money.

For members who do not want to use ski carriage, a free in-resort rental option can be offered with your lift pass instead.  However, this option is for basic skis, which are unlikely to match those offered by ESC.  Contact the holidays organiser if you are interested in this option.

Lift passes

Your lift pass covers the whole Espace Killy area, including Tignes and Val d'Isère.

The Hotel Tango is a fun place to stay, with its popular bar and indulgent spa. And best of all, you’ll have ski-in, ski-out access to the highest resort in Europe.

There’s a quirky edge to the décor here – especially in the rooms, which are done up in deep blues and reds, and have wallpaper patterned with tartan or snowy trees. Most of them have a balcony too, so you can look out over real winter scenery.

In the afternoons, the bar and terrace come alive with live music, so grab a cocktail and show off your dance moves. Or if you prefer things more low-key, head to the lounge to unwind by the roaring fire and watch a game on the TV, or make the most of the sauna and hammam in the spa.
