Ski extras – in partnership with Powder White

British Airways has teamed up with recognised skiing expert Powder White to make your ski holiday an unforgettable one. Through Powder White you can book and pre-pay for essential ski extras including ski passes, ski equipment from the best ski hire shops in resort and ski lessons.

Speak to a dedicated advisor at Powder White who can talk you through the array of lift pass options available. They can advise on ski equipment hire too and ensure you have the right kit to suit your needs, whether you’re a novice or an expert on the slopes. You can also be confident that it’s locally sourced close to your accommodation, so you can start your ski break in earnest from the moment you arrive.

Ski passes.

Ski passes

Book and pre-pay your ski passes before you arrive at the resort to avoid the queues. Powder White offer a large array of options including adult, child, senior and family passes, covering various length of days from 1 to 14 days, as well as different ski areas within a resort to satisfy even the most adventurous skier.

Ski hire.

Ski hire

Finding the best kit to match your ability can make all the difference to the skiing or boarding experience you have. Powder White uses the best hire shops in the resort to provide you with high quality equipment for the duration of your stay. Best of all, when you pre-book, everything will be waiting for you to test out without having to wait in a queue. When you pick up your equipment, it will be adjusted to your personal preferences in terms of your weight and ability. At any point you’re unhappy with your ski equipment during your holiday, your ski boots are uncomfortable for instance, you can pop back to the ski hire shop and swap it over – you’ll only be charged the difference in price if applicable.

Ski lessons.

Ski lessons

Depending on the resort you have chosen there is a wide variety of lessons available, from children and adult group lessons and private lessons, to off-piste guiding. Powder White will be happy to find what you are looking for (subject to availability), and in most resorts there are a variety of languages spoken, so they will endeavour to find an instructor that speaks your lingo too.
