Accommodation – Apartaments Olympiades **
Accommodation is in self catering shared apartments, such as Apartaments Olympiades. All apartments include a kitchenette, one or more bathrooms, a balcony, ski locker access, and a living and dining area. Apartaments Olympiades is likely to be the accommodation for this holiday, but this may be changed to another self-catering apartment block in the same resort.
What Olympiades lacks in luxury living, it makes up for in location. Right in the middle of Val Thorens, from Olympiades it’s a 2 minute stroll to the slopes, and later on you can pretty much just roll straight out of the biggest nightclub in the Alps and into bed. The epitome of ‘cheap and cheerful’ it’s a mere 5 minute walk to the main bars, the supermarket is next door, and across the road you’ll find the sports centre, hire shop, tabac and take-aways. Rooms are basic but standardised throughout the whole building, contain balconies with views of the ski area, and have everything you need given most of your time will be spent on the mountain or in the bar. All apartments include a kitchenette, one or more bathrooms, a balcony, ski locker access, and a living and dining area.
Group accommodation arrangements
If you are a group you should email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a group code to use in the booking process to ensure that you are accommodated together. The room sizes for this trip will not be confirmed until 4 weeks before the trip but for planning purposes, we are basing room sizes on 4 man rooms which are usually 2 bunk beds and 1 double sofa bed in the living room area (sofa style). There is the option to pay empty bed supplements. For example, if you are a group of 3 and you want the 4 man apartment for the 3 of you only, you need to pay 1 x empty bed supplement or if you are a group of 6 and want 2 x 4 person rooms over the 6 of you, between you, you need to pay 2 empty bed supplements. If you do not wish to pay empty bed supplements, the room may be filled to maximum occupancy with other Breakout Ski bookers.
If you are an individual and are not concerned about who you share with (its all about meeting new people!), we will allocate you to an apartment with other Breakout Ski bookers.
Ski and snowboard hire
With Breakout Ski, you’ll have preferential rates on ski and snowboard hire from some of the best outfits in the Alps. Ski and snowboard hire packages can be added to your holiday package at the point of booking.
