The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently released pictures of their ski trip to the French Alps.
Enjoying beautiful fresh snow and fantastic conditions in Courchevel, the family are believed to have arrived at by private jet into Chambery (the Altiport apparently experiencing difficult conditions). The couple stayed in a luxury chalet in Courchevel 1850, and dined at exclusive restaurants such as Le Pilatus and La Soucoupe, renowned for their rather high prices.
But here at Ski Magic, we know that you don’t have to be a royal to enjoy a cracking holiday in the Courchevel valley!
Here’s how you can ski the very same slopes as William and Kate, but at a tiny fraction of the budget:
1) Stay in La Tania
Well-known as the best value place from which to ski Courchevel, our chalets are in great piste-side locations and are just a short walk from the village. From La Tania you have easy access to both the Courchevel & Meribel valleys – 600km of skiing in total!
2) Opt for a catered holiday
Evening meals with unlimited wine? A catered chalet holiday is an ideal way to cut down on food & drink costs, especially if you fill up on the hearty breakfast and enjoy a nice wedge of homemade cake after skiing – no need for a restaurant lunch.
3) Picnic on the piste
down on a ham sarnie, but for those of us on a budget, a picnic on the piste is an unbeatable al fresco experience with truly a stunning 360° panorama – better than any restaurant!
4) Keep travel costs to a minimum
You too can fly to Chambéry! It’s a great little airport with flights via Flybe, Jet2 and BA and best of all, it’s less than 90 minutes transfer to La Tania. Our Ski Magic transfers are just £79 per person. Alternatively, Geneva has loads of flight options from budget airlines and our transfers are £79 per person.

The good thing about staying with us at Ski Magic is that you can use our exhaustive knowledge of the local area; we can recommend a good lunchtime restaurant at a budget to suit you. Coffee and a cake for under 5€ Best value burger in town? Ask us and we’ll tell you all our secret spots!
