Ski Club of Ireland Holidays 2025

  The Exhilaration of a Ski Holiday

On a ski holiday the exhilaration of skiing is matched by its congeniality. The special world of sun and snow, slopes and chairlifts, brings quick and easy conversation and friendships which follow into the apres-ski life, long after the lifts have stopped, and the snow turns long-shadowed. The relaxed mood and physical well-being induced by the excitement of the day is enjoyed in the cosmopolitan and happy atmosphere of apres-ski activity.

Skiing makes a marvellous holiday, the resort a refreshingly new way of life, in all, an escape from the noisy humdrum of a grey winter. It is a return to the elemental, transporting one high into the mountains, beyond ice blue brooks and silent frozen waterfalls to a new world combining relaxation and exhilaration.

That is why skiing has become the widest participant sport in Europe, enjoyed by all ages and lifestyles and, having once had a ski holiday, skiers can’t wait to return to the snow. 

 

Ski Club of Ireland

The Ski Club wants to bring this world to you and to the many others who use our slopes every year. The Ski Club was formed 60 years ago by ski enthusiasts who organised winter sports holidays abroad each year. That tradition continues today for its members.   Non-members are very welcome to join us too for a small additional fee (which entitles you to a free lesson or practice at Kilternan).  Indeed, there are generally more non-members than members on our trips. We especially encourage any individual who wants to ski but for a variety of reasons must do so on their own, to come with us.  Within 24 hours, they will feel part of the group.

 

3 Holidays

2025 will see the Club organising 3 holidays -   Courchevel (Jan 11 to 18), Bad Hofgastein (Jan 25 to Feb 1) and Schladming (Feb 23 to Mar 1)

Courchevel - France

 

 

The holiday in 2025 will be in the 3 Valleys (Courchevel) from Jan 11th to 18th with Dave Beattie and the Skivo2 Group, which we have used for many  years. This will be a specially tailored 5-day course (one day free skiing) targeted at intermediate to advanced skiers with about seven people in each ski group. Tuition is all-day for the 5 days, with video feedback and coaching from the very best of instructors who have worked with the Ski Club for many years.   This is a terrific opportunity to raise your personal skiing performance to a higher level and but always with enjoyment built into it. For advanced skiers, should snow conditions permit, off-piste skiing would be included.

People need to arrange their own flights and the selected one is FR1378 Ryanair to Grenoble returning on FR1379 to Dublin. Skivo2 provide the transfer between the airport and the resort.  Skivo2 provide accommodation and half board in Chalet Roger and Chalet Valeriane.  There will be a lot of socialising between those in the two chalets. 

Pricing is in Sterling and therefore will depend on the exchange rate at the time of payment. The figure is likely to be circa €1400 for sharers and €1880 for the limited number of single rooms.

You don’t have to be a member to come on the club holiday. Besides the excellent tuition in a fantastic resort, what really makes the holiday is the camaraderie of the group.  

So, if you are interested in going, please contact holidays@skiclub.ie to secure your place.
