Luxury Chalet Specialist, Alpine Guru have introduced a brand new ski concierge service, arranging anything from piste-side picnic to helicopter transfers from the slopes.
Ski-travellers around the world now have the ultimate in luxury service at their fingertips even when on-piste, thanks to the launch of a brand new Slopeside Concierge service from luxury chalet specialist Alpine Guru.
Available at a selection of Alpine Guru’s luxury properties in ski resorts across France, Austria, Switzerland and the US, the new service aims to offer guests the luxury of its attentive in-chalet service even when they’re out and about on the slopes; catering to their every need as they make their way down pristine pistes.
From helicopter pick-ups and valets for your skis, to gourmet Champagne picnics on the piste served by your own dedicated butler, the new Slopeside Concierge service offers a wide range of luxury services to guests when they’re away from their chalet home. Highlights of the new service include:
Gourmet On-Piste Picnics
Alpine Guru will arrange for a restaurant-quality gourmet picnic to be delivered to an on-piste spot of your choosing, complete with bottle of Champagne, a range of canapés, pastries and sandwiches prepared by your chalet chef, luxury silverware and a cosy waterproof blanket upon which to eat; all arranged and served by a private on-piste butler. Once you’ve finished, you needn’t worry about clearing your picnic away - your butler will take care of it all, leaving you free to enjoy your afternoon on the slopes.
Helicopter Transfers off the Slopes
A saviour for all those who’ve missed the last lift after indulging in a little too much fun at an après bar, or for those who simply like to descend the slopes in style… Alpine Guru’s new Slopeside Concierge service can arrange for a helicopter to pick you up from the slopes, eliminating the need to make your way back by lift, ski or snow-mobile. Simply give the concierge service a call and they’ll arrange for a helicopter transfer at a viable pick-up location nearby, leaving you to enjoy one last run whilst you wait (or one more tipple).
Ski and Boot Valet
Long-gone are the days where you’d have to trudge back to your chalet in your ski boots, skis or board uncomfortably flung over your shoulder. Alpine Guru’s new concierge service can arrange for a dedicated valet to meet you with fresh clothes and shoes, and transfer your skis/ snowboard and boots from the lift for you; taking the hassle out of your piste-to-chalet journey and leaving you free to head straight to the après bar after a long day on the slopes, without the worry of where to stash your equipment. Your skis and boots will be transferred safely in a warm, dry van and stored away back at your chalet – ready for you to hit the slopes the next day. Personal transfers from the slopes can of course also be arranged, whisking you from lift to chalet and on to a bar or restaurant of your choosing; ideal for those who don’t like to hit the après in their snow gear.
Personal Shopping on the Slopes
Feeling lacklustre in your choice of snow gear once you’ve hit the slopes? The Slopeside Concierge service can rectify that for you, arranging for a personal shopper to hit the resort stores for any items you need, select some options for you and meet you at a restaurant on-piste to select your favourites. If you want to change immediately- that’s no problem. Your personal shopper will take your original ski outfit back to your chalet for you, leaving you to swoosh down the slopes looking seriously stylish.
Impossible Reservations Made Possible
Desperate to get into that slopeside restaurant that’s forever fully booked? Alpine Guru’s new concierge service specialises in making those impossible reservations possible, getting you a table at your resort’s must-visit restaurants to make sure you’re well-fed whilst on the slopes. From Zermatt’s famous Chez Vrony to Crans Montana’s renowned Chetzeron restaurant, Alpine Guru will do all in its power to bag you a booking; made easy thanks to its excellent book of restaurant contacts worldwide.
