I know, I know… It feels like summer – or what we had of a summer – is only just over, but the distinct chill in the air this morning has already got me thinking about the 2012/13 ski season. And it seems I’m not the only one, as resorts and hotels across the Alps vie for our attention, worried about the shrinking ski market.
The Kulm Hotel St. Moritz, a pioneer of winter tourism, is underlining its commitment to the future of skiing by unveiling a special ski pass offer and free skiing lessons for children to encourage the younger generations to take up winter sports.
For just CHF25 (approx £16) per person per day, guests staying at the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz for a minimum of two nights will receive a ski pass for the entire St. Moritz/Engadine region including free travel on all public transport. The offer is valid throughout the 2012/2013 winter season at both the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz and its sister property Grand Hotel Kronenhof in nearby Pontresina.
In cooperation with the St. Moritz Ski School, the Kulm Hotel is also offering its younger guests, aged between four and 12, the chance to attend complimentary group ski lessons. The pick-up of the kids from the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz by a ski school instructor, the transfer from Chantarella station to Salastrains ski ground and the group lessons are all included.
Meanwhile over in Adelboden, the resort is offering a 10% discount to everyone buying their ski passes before 15 December 2012, so get to it! And for a really comprehensive listing of ski pass offers throughout the world, check out Mad Dog Ski.
So I know it’s only September, but my advice is to grab a ski bargain while you can!
