I was a late starter in the world of skiing at the age of 27 - so by that time I had no mates that skied or boarded! I searched everywhere for skiing holidays for singles but found most operators wanted a gigantic single supplement. Seems singles ski trips were pretty thin on the ground - you had to organise it all yourself.
I tasked myself with solving this problem and decided to set up Pistepals - to be able to bring together groups of like-minded people in a fully catered chalet - handpicked for its location, service and comfort. So far over 20 successful weeks have been run with solo skiers and snowboarders from all over the UK.
Not just ski holidays for singles...who are our guests?
Pistepals is the holiday provider for solo skiers and snowboarders. We love shredding the snow, laughing at lunch, chairlift chuckles and apres ski antics so if you want to join in with the mixed groups of solo skiers/boarders in the same boat as you - come along on one of our fully hosted weeks in Morzine!
Many Pistepals also travel independently of their friends and family - a good proportion of guests have partners who can't or won't ski. So we would never call Pistepals trips "singles skiing holidays" but they are perfect skiing holidays for singles or anyone else who finds themselves without a ski buddy.
We don't place any expectations on single skiers coming along and meeting people - we are not here for that - (not saying it doesn't happen mind you - we've had a Pistepals marriage already!) the are a gathering of like minded skiers and snowboarders travelling alone and hoping to get good snow, good banter and well fed.
So don't think "skiing holidays for singles" - more like a "virtual ski club". I know it can be daunting to come along and meet a bunch of people for the first time - but they are in exactly the same boat as you!
You can check our galleries and testimonials of previous solo ski holiday groups if you wish to be reassured further.
