One of the things I always like to have when I am planning my holiday is a human point of contact, someone I can communicate with beforehand and who can support me when I arrive and during my stay. This is why I wanted to offer the Butler Service as a unique selling point for guests staying with us at Swiss Mountain Escape.

We can organise your lift passes in advance so they are waiting for you. We generally recommend that you buy full Portes du Soleil passes as this gives you most flexibility for skiing in Switzerland and France. However, if you have kids at beginner stage it is better to check with the ski school as to which areas they are likely to be skiing before you purchase. Note: Lift passes do not need a photograph.
