Recently I popped along to Snow Factor with Crystal Ski get get excited about winter! It was a fabulous ski evening where we got the chance to hit the slopes before the ski season is upon us - ideal to get a lil bit of practice in before you head off to swoosh down the slopes. As you may already know I'm a bit of a ski lover and as a Piste Princess couldn't wait to test out my ski legs for the first time this season!
Crystal are ski holiday specialists, they know everything there is to know about the world of snow! If you're thinking of heading to the mountains they make everything easy for you and just love the snow and mountains. They know all about a huge array of resorts and have insider knowledge for amazing hints and tips. I actually went to Andorra with Crystal in March and had an absolute ball. They just had everything under control and kept us busy with trips like the Mountain Meal that we never would have found out about before!
Crystal are here to make booking a ski holiday easy peasy. You can jet off to Italy, France, Austria and even head a little further afield to the USA or Canada, You've got the choice of chalets, hotels or apartments. You can go as a group, go all out luxury or even go solo to the mountains. They've got amazing deals on offer, as well as snow reports to keep you up to date on the conditions of where you're headed!
Basically Crystal are your go-to for all things snow!
We started the evening with a bit of a buffet in Bar Varia - gotta fuel up before you pop the skis on you know.
Bar Varia is the Barvarian themed restaurant and Bier Halle at Snow Factor. They offer up delicious home-cooked meals, some with their own mouth-watering Barvarian taste. Plus on Fridays and Saturdays there's often live music, bands and DJs - ideal for a bit of apres. There's plenty of beers to choose from and of course some lovely chilled wines. It's just a really lovely place to chill out whilst watching the skiers do their stuff on the slope.
And then we got the chance to hit the slopes - yaaaaa!
As I've skied before I headed off for some free time on the slopes!
At Snow Factor there's two slopes, the advanced and beginner and it's actually Scotland's only year round snow-sport resort and it's the longest indoor real snow slope in the UK, pretty dandy. As well as enjoying free time on the slope you can also get lessons for skiing or snowboarding. You couldn't get a more perfect place practice, learn and just enjoy the slopes!
After skiing of course you have to head back to Bar Varia for a bit of apres....
A had such a fabulous evening with Crystal and it definitely got me excited to get my skis on and head to the mountains at Christmas time! Snow Factor is just an amazing evening out where you can spent an evening doing something different that you love.
So Crystal, where should I book my next ski adventure to.....
