Inghams 2015-16 ski brochure

You might not have even had your summer holidays yet, but ski companies are gearing up for winter, with the Inghams 2015-16 ski brochure launched this week.

The brochure sees an expansion of the company’s winter offering with new resorts in Austria and Italy, two new chalets and a flagship ‘platinum’ standard 5 diamond Chalet Hotel Le Savoie in Val d’Isere (above).

In brief:

  • The six new resorts are Fieberbrunn, Brand and Bürserberg, Igls (Austria), Champoluc and Bardonecchia (Italy).
  • The two new chalets are 3½ diamond Chalet Tirol in Mayrhofen, Austria and 3½ diamond Chalet Fleurie in Avoriaz, France.
  • Two new ‘Xtra’ chalets.  The already popular 4½ diamond Du Montet in Val d’Isère, France and the 4½ diamond De Verbier in Verbier have been rebranded as ‘Xtra’ Chalets – a stepping stone between the standard chalet and full Chalet Hotel.
