The Ski Miquel chalet holiday
Why do 85% of our guests return each year?
It's quite hard to 'bottle' what makes a Ski Miquel holiday so special, but our holidays offer something a bit different to the rest. Compared with other chalet holidays, the great value that Ski Miquel has to offer and the inclusive social atmosphere we have built over the last 40 years has made us a firm favourite amongst our guests, which has led to us being known by some as “the ski industry’s best-kept secret”.
You will receive a warm Ski Miquel welcome from our staff as you walk through the door of one of our chalet-hotels, as they direct you to your en-suite room with British-made beds and comfortable bedding.
After you have unpacked your things and freshened up, head down to our lounge and bar, where a roaring fire will be awaiting you. Our intention is to make this feel like your home away from home.
A Ski Miquel holiday is made as much by our guests as it is by our staff. Our popular social skiing ethos means you can mix with other similarly-minded guests to enjoy the mountains and the ambience in our chalet-hotels, and you will find that making friends is easy.
Get to know our staff, have a chat with some of our other guests, and start getting excited about your first day on the mountain.
In the mornings you can enjoy a few hours with our ski hosts, as they show you the very best of what the resort has to offer. They know the mountains well, and they will show you how to find the best pistes with unspoiled snow to start off your day.
They will then take you to the best cafés and restaurants for your coffee and lunch stops, which may not be as well-known to everyone else on the mountain, therefore helping you to avoid any queues.
Some of the highlights in our resorts include venturing over into Italy from Montgenèvre, trying the world-famous Lauberhorn downhill run in Wengen from our base in Lauterbrunnen, or discovering the superb Pyrenean skiing in Baqueira.
This community spirit doesn’t end on the mountain, and coming back to the chalet-hotel for afternoon tea and cake after your day out on the slopes you can share stories with others and enjoy all the fun of being together in the mountains.
At the Chalet-Hotel Rosa in Lauterbrunnen you can head out to the hot tub and enjoy views of the surrounding peaks whilst you soothe those aching muscles. Alternatively, you can just get comfy in front of the open log fire and enjoy being back in the warmth again.
In the evening, your own Ski Miquel bar will open up and offer you great value drinks (always the cheapest in town!) and the perfect opportunity to trade tales of your day on the mountain and indulge in a few tasty pre-dinner canapés prepared by our professional chef.
The evening meal is when you can join in with your fellow guests, and the conversation will flow along with the complimentary wine!
Our hosts will serve you at the table with the great quality food that regular guests have come to know and love. Skillfully prepared by our chefs using the renowned Ski Miquel Cookbook, you can guarantee a full belly and a happy heart by the end of the evening, so you will be stoked up and raring to go for your next day's skiing.
There are many reasons why 85% of our guests choose to travel with us again and again, so why not find out for yourself? Read some of our reviews below, or get in touch with us about booking your own Ski Miquel holiday.
We hope to see you in the mountains very soon!
A return trip to the Tannenburg and much of what I wrote last time is still in place. But some recent changes which are worth noting: 1. The menu has been overhauled - food was always good but this time the recipes seemed more adventurous - lamb tagine, cajun salmon and fillet steak (on the last night) were all excellent and a very welcome addition was the night of local cuisine - Goulash Stew with spaetzle and local veg and Apple Strudel went down really well. (Great job, Ashley!) 2. Several new lifts have opened since my last visit which make getting round the ski area much quicker than previously. SO, once again, thanks to Manager Dave, Ferne and Nadine for chalet support and Ben for manfully running the bar despite heavy pressure (!)
This was another great skiing holiday with Ski Miquel, staying in the characterful Tannenburg. We first visited in 2018 and were so impressed that we returned this year and, again, were not disappointed. Dave, our resort manager and ski host, was brilliant as usual and made sure that everyone settled in quickly and were well looked after, both in the chalet and on the slopes. The skiing here is extensive and varied and under Dave's expert guidance we covered the pistes in Bad Gastein, Graukogel, Bad Hofgastein, Dorfgastein, Angertal and Sportgastein. Brilliant. A special mention for Ashley and her team, who worked so hard to make sure that the food at the Tannenburg was top class, with tasty and plentiful breakfasts, afternoon tea and cake for those who could tear themselves away from the apres-ski and excellent three-course dinners plus cheese and wine. Many thanks to all the staff. All in all this was a fantastic week, made all the more fun by a great crowd of guests who gelled from day one. Definitely a holiday to remember.
This Chalet-Hotel is run by Ski Miquel. This is the first time we have used them and what a great, all inclusive little company they are. The team in the UK office were all friendly and efficient and the team running the hotel were great and looked after us well for a week. If you're travelling solo, as a couple, or in a group, this company offers good social skiing options and a very social hotel environment. I wouldn't hesitate to book with them again, in fact I have just tried to travel in a few days time but they don't have availability, which is my loss!
Just had a week with Ski Miquel staying at this chalet. We had a fantastic week which can be put down to the staff under the great management of Idan. He was also an excellent ski guide for the week. The skiing and the town of Bad Gastein are brilliant and there are lots to see and do either in town or by taking the train into Salzburg. A big thank you to you all!
We have just returned from a week at the chalet-hotel Tannenburg in Bad Gastein. We had a fantastic week and really enjoy the relaxed chalet-hotel model Ski Miquel make the most of (this was our fifth stay in a Ski Miquel chalet). The chef Paulo and his assistant chef made fantastic meals all week and really went out of their way to make good delicious food for our daughter which she was able to have earlier as waiting until 8pm would have been too long for her. Paolo was also lovely to chat to over cake after a long day skiing. Idan, Iona, Rebecca and Tom were very friendly, helpful and generally pleasant to be around each day. We had a few beginners and a child so we didn’t join the ski guiding this year but the other guests seemed to really enjoy it and only had good things to say about the guides and the trips to Sportgastein and Dorfgastein. Wednesday is the night off - we took the chair lift to the belle alm for fondue which we recommend but booking ahead is necessary and the Felsentherme spa is worth a trip, discount is available if you book 3 trips at once.
