BUYING SKI PASSES
The LATE APRIL HALF-PRICE ski pass described below must be pre-paid in the UK. These are available for YSE guests only. Scroll down for full details.
Buying on the coach
You can buy ALL OTHER ski passes on the YSE transfer coach between Lyon airport and Val d’Isère, and we deliver them to your chalet later the same evening. You can pay for ski passes on the coach with euros cash, sterling cash, Visa/Mastercard debit or credit cards, or American Express.
Buying ski passes if you are using your own transport
If you aren’t travelling to Val d’Isère on the YSE flight and coach, please speak to your chalet staff on arrival so arrangements can be made for buying and delivering your ski passes.
Buying pedestrian passes
Pedestrian passes can also be bought on the coach as above.
Buying beginner passes
We are not able to buy the special Beginner Pass (see above) which you must buy from the ski school you’ve booked your week’s lessons with.
Bought on the YSE transfer bus (as described above).
Available to families of four or more, for six-day passes. Everyone must be related (spouse, child, grandchild). Maximum of two family members past their 22nd birthday, minimum of two under it. Students aged 18-21 must show a student card. Children under 5 don’t count because their pass is free anyway. All family members purchasing the family pass must do so at the same time and for the same number of days.
The deal is that everyone pays €244, the child (5-13 yrs) price, which is 20% cheaper than the adult (14-64 yrs) price. For a family of four with two children under 14 the saving isn’t huge – just the adults paying the children’s price. For a family of six with teenagers and students, it’s pretty good.
LATE APRIL HALF-PRICE DISCOUNT
Pre-paid to YSE in the UK. We will add the cost to your Confirmation and Invoice for each person on your booking unless you tell us about anyone who does not require a ski pass.
For holidays commencing 19 April 2020, we offer a six-day pass for £170 per person, regardless of your age. You may also buy a seven-day pass, for £195 but these are only available in pairs, so you cannot buy a single seven-day pass through us on this offer.
If you are coming on holiday with YSE for two weeks, the second of which is 19-26 April 2020, probably the cheapest option is to buy a normal six-day pass and a reduced seven-day pass. You will have to pay for the seven-day pass in advance (buying in multiples of two) and then buy the six-day pass on the transfer coach, as described above. The cost will be the price of the special seven-day pass (£195) plus €304. Alternatively, we can buy you the normal thirteen-day pass for €572. Depending on the exchange rate at the time, this might be the cheaper option. It is certainly simpler!
NB These special ski pass offers are available only to those who have purchased YSE holidays!
