Ski Packages: Building Package offerings

Luxury ski vacations? Family ski vacations? Student ski vacations? Cheap ski vacations? These are just some of the things prospective travellers are seeking.

1. Look for a variety of date ranges

Vacation packages should have a variety of time spans associated with them. Not everyone van take a full week ski vacation, make sure your package provider caters to you.

  • Do they Offer multiple packages with 1,2,3, 5 nights?
  • Do they offer value for travellers who wish to stay longer?

2. Do they offer "shoulder season" discounts?

Early and late season can have less than ideal ski conditions, and often soft consumer demand. Discounts during these seasons can make for big savings.

4. Do you need family friendly packages?

Family travellers have special needs when seeding ski package offerings. Consider asking about offerings such as

  • Free kids meal
  • Free lift tickets for children under a specific age
  • Beginner-hill only passes
  • Suites with kitchnettes
  • Ski Lessons
  • On-site child care
  • Nanny services

6. Student packages

  • Spring break packages (don't forget to take into account differing Canadian/American spring breaks)
  • Christmas break packages
  • Weekend deals for students groups

7. Partner with local service providers

A ski area doesn't need their own car rental, or limosine service, but they should cater to clientale who need those services.

  • Car rental companies
  • Limo rental companies
  • Local tourist attractions

8. Show the price!

Unless a ski package is custom built, they should show the price immediately.
