Snowboarding Holiday Companies

Looking for the best possible snowboarding holiday deal?  There are loads of companies out there who offer package deals that cover your flight, accommodation and transfers. Other snowboarding holiday companies focus on just the accommodation itself.

Here’s a list of the best companies and tour operators that look after UK based snowboard holidays:

Neilson

Tend to specialise in some of the less popular destinations such as Norway, Sweden, and Italy, as well as offering deals to the usual suspects.We’ve used them for two awesome trips to Are in Sweden that only cost £300 inc flights, apartment and transfers. Neilson are part of the Thomas Cook group so they’re part of a big company which means you can book with confidence.

Pros:

  • The only big tour operator offering some alternative destinations like Sweden and Norway.
  • Good value, good service and backed by a big company so you won’t get left stranded in an airport.

Cons:

  • Their website could be a lot easier to use.  It’s a real pain in the a*** to search for deals!

Crystal

Crystal are one of the biggest ski and snowboard tour operators and part of the huge TUI travel group so you can book safe in the knowledge that they’re highly unlikely to disappear overnight. They offer a really broad range of snowboarding holidays and now even cover the power kingdom of Japan (known as Jap-pow to the BoardStylist crew).

Pros:

  • As with Neilson they are part of a huge company so you can book with confidence and you’re benefiting from their huge buying buyer to get cheap prices.
  • Low hassle compared with booking flights, chalets and transport yourself – often for no extra cost!
  • Website is a dream to use.

Cons:

  • It’s  a big company so you’re feeding the corporates and you’re not going to get that friendly, family style chalet, staying with the locals vibe.
