WHO ARE SKI BEAT?
Ski Beat was founded and is still run by people who came out to France to "do a season" and then never went back! We provide quality ski holidays with good standard chalets in the high altitude snow-sure resorts of Meribel, Val d'Isère, Les Arcs and La Plagne (Paradiski), La Rosière and La Tania. Many of the staff "on the Beat" (and indeed many guests) return year after year thanks to our friendly ethos and excellent staff package. Will you end up being one of those seasonnaires who comes out and makes the French Alps their home? Read on.....
