About Us – Meet our Team

We have worked all over the world, within different areas of the snowsports industry. Entering our 10th year in Tignes our wealth of experience and local knowledge ensure we always deliver a great product.

We are fully licensed and insured with the French and Swiss authorities. Our British drivers hold professional qualifications (ROSPA) and undertake a medical examination to ensure they are safe and physically capable of working in an alpine environment. The team is dedicated to making your journey an enjoyable and comfortable experience.

All our vehicles are Long Wheel Base Renault Trafic 9 Seat Minibuses. This means you have plenty of room for skis/boards and any other holiday essentials you may need. We have USB charging points in each van too should your phones or tablets need power. All vans are equipped with 4 winter tyres and snowchains so you will be sure to get to your destination safely. We have a stock of children’s seats, please let us know your requirements in your initial enquiry.
