Cosmos Holidays has launched its first dedicated ski & snowboard brochure featuring a range of winter sports holidays in popular European ski resorts across Austria, France and Italy for winter 2013/14.
The new holidays are packaged with a choice of Monarch scheduled flights operating to Munich, Friedrichshafen, Innsbruck, Verona, Venice and Grenoble from selected UK airports.
Building on the introduction of a first phase of the ski programme for winter 2012/13, the new brochure features a broader range of resorts and accommodation on all board bases. Ski holidays are based on seven-night durations with short breaks available in Italy.
Customers can also choose from a choice of ‘simply elite’ branded hotels offering superior accommodation such as the five-diamond rated Cristallo Hotel & Spa in Cortina d’Ampezzo or the five-diamond rated Schloss Lebenberg Hotel in Kitzbuhel.
Early booking offers are also available including a deposit offer of £59 per person as well as half price ski or snowboard carriage for bookings made before September 30.
All holidays include resort transfers in the base price and customers can pre-book a range of extras such as equipment hire, lessons and ski passes. Five-day ski tuition is available from £110 per adult or child and six-day ski set hire including boots, skis and poles is available from £51 per adult and £28 per child, while six-day lift passes cost from £13 per adult and children from £77.
