Ski holiday help needed

DH is an experienced skiier and I am not. The problem is that all of our friends who skiied have now stopped because DCs, but DH would still really like a skiing holiday. I'm fine with this, but it would be no good us going just on our own as I'd be falling over on the nursery slopes while he'd be whizzing down black runs.

Are there any holiday companies which do group skiiing holidays where you don't sleep in the same chalet, but you all ski together at varying levels? I've looked online and can't see anything obvious.

I think what we want is to have our evenings and accommodation to ourselves but be part of a group during the day.

Any suggestions appreciated.

VIP used to offer ski hosting, whereby a staff member would take a group of intermediate/experienced skiers out for a day, failing that, a ski guide for OH? They may offer a group thing and ski school for you, where you may meet a buddy to ski with during the afternoons
There's a forum called snowheads and someone on there will be able to advise you better. It's a bit quiet this time of year, but there is always someone on there smile

I think quite a few of the tour operators offer a ski guide service so you could stay in one of their hotels and then they take groups out of similar ability, usually part of a package I know my parents dos his when they went with club med

Thank you! Will take a look. I know it's the wrong time of year but I thought I could get some suggestions to start looking into. smile

You've described us exactly.
We book a chalet with a British tour operator in a biggish resort and I book into ski school for group morning lessons. I have a right laugh with all the other neurotic skiers then meet DH & DC for lunch & gentle skiing

Powder Byrne if you are happy to spend a bit more... Their guiding is brilliant. Very sociable and you all meet up for lunch. You need to be competent on blue runs. Or you could do lessons and at least DH would have a group of speed freaks to ski with!
