Nifty at Fifty

What it is

This is the perfect holiday for the discerning skier. If you’ve reached your half century enjoy fine wines, good food and intelligent conversation, and you’ve had enough of ski holidays in mixed age company, then this is the holiday for you.

Nifty at Fifty is designed for over 50s who enjoy skiing at an intermediate level (you’re happy on red runs) and want to enjoy a holiday in similar company.


One of the great things about this holiday is that it is designed and lead by a fifty-something ski instructor, so we’ll all be on the same page. We know the area very well, you will be able to avoid the crowds and ski to atmospheric mountain haunts, whilst receiving expert guidance to improve your technique.

The pace is set by you; you can stop for a warming coffee and cognac at 11, and a delicious lunch and still get in plenty of miles. At the end of the day you will return to the comforts of the beautiful Chalet Ste. Marie and a meal prepared for you by our chef, accompanied by fine wines.

How it works

It’s the combination of good skiing, appetizing food, fine wines and excellent company that’s attractive. We will look after everything. When we stop at a restaurant for lunch, your table will be booked in advance; if you have any special dietary requirements, our chef will accommodate them.

We can arrange for a selection of skis for you to try and give you plenty of expert advice and technical tips so give us a call and we’ll arrange a get together.
