For us, the mountain is everything. We love it as much as you do. Since 1981 we’ve been finding the best places to ski and the most exciting mountains to spend time in.
All the favourites are covered like the Alps and the Rockies – but we’ve also found amazing alternative resorts in places like Norway, Bulgaria and Finland. Whatever it is you’re looking for in a ski holiday you’ll find it in one of our 130+ resorts.
You’ll also get loads of local tips about the place you’re going to – including non-skiing activities, the best places to eat, weather reports and up-to-the-minute resort news. Feel free to ask us anything while you’re researching where to go and one of our holiday experts will answer – most likely someone who’s working in the resort you’re interested in. You can tap into an even larger ski community on our social media pages too.
So with Crystal you can be confident that you’ve found exactly the holiday you want, and you’ll be sure of that before you’ve even packed your goggles.

Once upon a time, when moustaches were fashionable and skis were long and skinny, a little company called Le Ski started taking people on skiing holidays…
…these people seemed to have a really good time when they stayed in our chalets, and so we carried on. Fast forward thirty years and moustaches seem to be making a comeback and skis are fat and short. But Le Ski is still quite a little company (and still spiritedly independent) because that’s the way we like it, and that’s the way our guests are happiest. And ultimately, that’s what it’s all about.
Mountain Heaven have been providing excellent value catered and self-catered chalet holidays in the French and Swiss Alps since 2003.
We are an independent family owned company with extensive knowledge, experience and a genuine passion for the mountains.
We have grown steadily over the years and from our firm roots in La Plagne we have now branched out to feature seven of the best resorts in France and Switzerland that offer fantastic skiing and are high enough to guarantee great snow conditions
We’ve been around for around 37 years, starting out as two separate companies; one providing top-end ski holidays and the other teaching people to sail in Greece. For around two decades we became better and better at putting together activity-based holidays, one company doing fun things in the snow, the other having adventures in the Med.
In 1999, Thomas Cook, who owned both companies at the time, decided that it would make perfect sense for us to join together. That was when the famous orange logo was created, and Neilson Active Holidays as we know it came into existence.
From our base here in Brighton Marina, we create our award-winning beach, sailing and ski holidays and continue to perfect the art of making everyone feel welcome. No matter what your levels of experience or favourite activities are, Neilson Holidays really do let you relax as hard as you like.
In December 2013, Risk Capital Partners backed a management buyout of Neilson Active Holidays Ltd and we are now a wholly independent holiday company, looking forward to continuing to develop holidays we love to share with our guests. And we look forward to welcoming you to the mountains, the water and the beach in the near future.

Skiworld is the largest independent ski tour operator in the UK. We were founded in 1982 by a very keen skier who felt he could offer better holidays in top resorts at more reasonable prices than those on the market. Ian Coleby is now our Chairman and still a keen skier.
Ian’s ethos has not changed. We offer skiing holidays in only the top snow sure resorts in Europe and North America ensuring we have a long season from late November until mid April, offering the possibility of crowd free skiing at great prices.And that’s Ian’s other passion. Prices. He still prices our holidays with a keen eye for value. Value means the best prices you can find with no compromise on service. And that is true for all our guests from groups of 200 to single travellers.
A family run business, with over 50 combined years of experience, Dan, Marina (& their 3 budding skiers!) along with the snowchateaux team specialise in catered and self-catered ski chalet holidays in the Paradiski area of the French Alps.
We like to think that as a family run business and by focusing on the best of the French Alps, ski areas that we love and have a great deal of experience in, we can offer some of the most charming chalets, the nicest and most helpful staff and the best chefs the area has to offer.
As we know the area and locals so well, and are the direct and only providers of our own accommodation, we run our business with relatively low overheads (just as well in the current climate!) so are able to offer exceptional value La Plagne, Les Arcs and Tignes accommodation to our customers by passing those benefits on.
