This season, 17/18 we will be celebrating our 15th year in the ski industry! Someone joked about equating ski years to dog years… I guess it is a big achievement to have made it so far in such a fast changing, competitive industry.
It’s fair to say that the ski gods have not been kind over the past couple of years, we are well overdue a season of fresh powder and that lusted after white Christmas. Brexit has had its effects for sure but this has been mused over enough for now so we shall continue with our mantra ‘those who ski WILL ski’.
So, with the 17/18 ski season fast approaching, let’s don our dancing shoes and start the snow dance!!
Our team at Freedom Ski will quite literally be dancing the whole season… we have decided, that in celebration of ‘15 years of Freedom’ we will be throwing a party… every week of the season!
All guests will be invited to join us for a special gala dinner and a wine tasting taking us from 2017 to day one in 2002. This will be spaced throughout the week so that you can make first lifts… or at least have good intentions to!
So what’s new for this season?
We decided to take on the landscape around us and aim high. Moving mountains could be quoted. We are in the depths of a big renovation in Chalet Le Crepet. We have lost two bedrooms on the lower ground floor to make way for a wine cave, home cinema & treatment room. Fear not though, we have created a master suite with fantastic views over Nyon and the Pleney and also a children’s room, called ‘The Combles’ with Jack n Jill beds, inclusive of an en suite, allowing us to continue to accommodate large groups. Chalet Le Crepet will now sleep 14+2 guests.
Chalet Le Crepet is part of a two year ‘facelift’ and next summer will see improvements across both chalets.
We have recognised that Morzine is becoming a desired resort and to it, lots of investment & development. We will continue to keep our chalets in line with the best and deliver the highest level of service.
We have 5 out of 8 staff returning this season, including both our chefs – we feel very lucky to have such a strong team continue to look after our guests. We will also be adding an extra member to our team this season to support both chalets. Make sure to check in with us throughout the season for an insider’s guide to chalet life.
Continuing the celebrations, 2017/18 will be OUR year… let’s hope we can party as hard as we did in the 80’s… we will be offering a ‘Welcome Gift’ to any guests taking Chalet Le Crepet on an Exclusive use basis.
Guests will get the choice of one of the following:
- 4 hours worth of massages to be split between guests as desired to CELEBRATE our new Treatment room
- An evening of wine tasting with our Sommelier to CELEBRATE the new wine cellar
- OR a complimentary nanny on staff night off so that the adults can continue the celebrations child free…in CELEBRATION of the Combles
So… 2017/18 is set to be a big one!!…
If you may, lets raise a glass to Freedom Ski and join our celebrations this season.
