Why am I in the ski business? It is all because of my wife!

Why am I in the ski business? Why did I start Allez Ski? You've got my wife to thank for that. Our family love skiing but with two girls at school (that's Charlotte and Sophie with me in Chamrousse in the picture below), we're tied to school holidays. My wife would sit on her iPad for hours, night after night, looking for a value for money holiday that would tick all of the boxes. Night after night she would be disappointed.


Watching her struggle, I knew other families would be doing exactly the same. I decided I had to conjure up the perfect solution and knew I was the man for job! Benefitting from my experience, knowledge and contacts gained taking hundreds of islanders to the Alps for five successful seasons from 2008 until 2012, Allez Ski was created in 2017 for families just like ours and yours. I'm very proud of what we are able to offer you: family-friendly, value for money holidays that tick all of the boxes.


Why Chamrousse? Well, you've got Ben from Ben's Bus to thank for that! I first visited Chamrousse in 2012 when I was still offering the bigger resorts of Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d'Huez. We used Ben's Bus for our transfers (and still do!) and Ben has an apartment in Chamrousse. He encouraged me to check it out and after just a couple of days, I was completely smitten with the resort. When I started Allez Ski there was only ever going to be one destination because it is perfect for families.
