The Mountains are Calling (TMAC) offers a completely flexible service to help arrange your ski trip to France, Switzerland, Austria or Italy.
The services I offer are very much tailored to your individual requirements. Neither a tour operator or a travel agency, TMAC is a personal ski consultancy. This means I take the hassle out of arranging your trip, focussing on the accommodation, resort services and local travel arrangements.
The TMAC process begins with a telephone or email consultation to establish what you are looking for and your priorities when in the mountains. Do you have a particular ski resort in mind? Do you have a preferred country you wish to visit? Are you unsure about what you want? Are you new to skiing?
I can inspire you!
Whether you are an accomplished skier, a beginner or you have been tasked with arranging the company ski trip, I can help you on your journey to ensure every box has been ticked, so that your ski trip is an outstanding success and hassle free.
There are no hidden costs or mark-ups, I work on commission paid by the accommodation venues and services I recommend to you. Reputation, trust and integrity are of utmost important to me so I only ever recommend places and services I have visited or used myself.
Hassle Free Arrangements
Using my personal knowledge of the many of the properties and resorts I recommend, I can give you an honest view of what to expect and what will best suit your personal requirements.
I work with a wide selection of resorts across the Alps and can advise where would best work for you.
Once we have identified your chosen location, we can discuss the benefits of a hotel versus a chalet or even a self catering apartment. All have their advantages and can offer a superb base for your mountain ‘home from home’. My portfolio includes a wide range, all offering great service and facilities to suit varied budgets. It is down to personal preference and what works best for your ski trip criteria.
I can arrange week long, short breaks or weekend trips, depending on the time you have available.
Once you have chosen your ideal accommodation, I will put you in contact with them and your invoice will be payable directly to them.
Booking Resort Services
As well as the accommodation, I can arrange any extras you require; from finding the best restaurants or après ski stops, to arranging ski lessons for children and adults or a mountain guide to show you the best off piste. This is all part of the service.
Once you have arrived in the resort, I want you to enjoy every minute. For this reason, I recommend making arrangements in advance, including booking lift passes, equipment hire, ski and board lessons, and I can do this for you.
Childcare arrangements, spa treatments and fine dining are also bookable in advance. Ask and I will make it my mission to arrange any of these extras for you.
If you would like an itinerary for the duration of your stay, I can provide this too.
I can advise on your travel plans to work around your ideals; using regional airports, specific timings and mode of transfer choice. Whether you want to arrive into resort by car, train, bus or helicopter, I will provide you with the options. I work with flight agents who can provide ABTA bonded flights offering you protection.
Need help with something else?
This is by no means a complete list. As an independent consultant, I offer the flexibility to work to your requirements. Should you have a special request or unusual enquiry, please do let me know and I will be happy to take up the challenge!
