Inghams Winter ski programe now on sale
Published: 04 August 2011
Inghams have launched their 2011/12 Ski & Snowboard brochure under the title ‘The Skier’s A-Z’, with an unprecedented 56 new chalets and Chalet Hotels, 3 new resorts and huge new Inghams Plus savings of up to £600 per couple, including early booking Cash-Back offers, hotel discounts and upgrades, and savings on ski-packs, lift passes, tuition and ski hire
The thousands of savings across the ski programme, coupled with the new trebled range of catered chalet / Chalet Hotel accommodation and a revitalised new-look brochure, mark a quantum leap in Inghams 76 year history, at a time when value for money, exceptional service and snow-sure conditions are more important than ever in all skiers’ minds.
Skiers and snowboarders can choose from 44 resorts in 4 different countries, with departures from Belfast International Airport to Innsbruck and Geneva along with 21 departures from UK airports.
Inghams CEO, Andy Perrin, commented on the new developments: “We recognise that times are still hard out there, and the new brochure responds to that overwhelmingly important current trend by going all out to give skiers outstanding value for money. The new chalets are a key part of this drive, with so much already included in the price, that any in-resort spend is kept to the barest minimum. Over £1 million of new ‘Inghams Plus’ deals also go a long way to ensure that Inghams guests now get fantastic value, as well as the first-class service for which the company is known.”
Perrin noted the clear trend in the current tough economic times towards the unrivalled value for money provided by the quality catered chalet concept. With prices starting from just £535 including flights, transfers, and seven nights fully serviced and catered accommodation, Inghams’ chalet and Chalet Hotel programme now encompasses 56 properties in 17 resorts, from small, traditional chalets sleeping six, to the new flagship ski-in/ski-out Chalet Hotel St Christoph, high in Austria’s Arlberg ski area, for up to 136 guests, complete with swimming-pool, fireside lounge and bar. All offer high quality cuisine and service, including a full skiers’ buffet breakfast, afternoon tea, and 4 or 5-course dinners with a choice of unrestricted complimentary wines, and tea/coffee to follow.
Also new this winter is a broad-based range of money saver and added value deals under the ‘Inghams Plus’ banner, and detailed on every resort introduction page and beneath each participating hotel. Savings include early booking discounts, 2-for-1 ski/snowboard-hire saving up to £109 per couple, and a lift pass guarantee, ensuring the best price on pre-booked lift passes. Additional savings include thousands of free child places, one parent saver discounts of up to 25% in selected hotels, and competitive group discounts, with up to one free place in five, plus a free lift pass for group leaders.
