An independent brokerage and investment company arranges an annual staff ski trip. Having organised a ski event themselves once before, our client decided it was time to bring in the experts! We provided a number of options as well as suggesting they have one of our Event Managers on site to co-ordinate the trip. As it was a self-funded trip we also had to take into account the cost implications of various destinations.
One of the reasons Courmayeur was chosen was due to its close proximity to Geneva. The group stayed in a 4* hotel. As the group was split over two rotations, two dinner were taken in the hotel by each group and then a large company celebration dinner took place on the Saturday night. Restaurants and pubs had to be within walking distance of the hotel to avoid additional transfers. Courmayeur is a delightful Italian resort offering fantastic food both on and off the mountain which also appealed to this group.
‘Overall we were very happy – it was our biggest ski trip yet and one of the most successful!!! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we managed to get everyone back in one piece with no major injuries (…….just a few hangovers and some sunburn!). Two things to mention, I thought the arrangements prior to the trip went very well – the SEL chart was very clear. We also liked having a guide with us and it saved so much time having the ski passes pre-ordered.’
