Vanilla Ski is run by Samantha Maiklem and her 2 daughters Jessica and Melissa, both accomplished competitive skiers who have grown up skiing the Tarentaise. We are very much hands on owner-operators and have been running winter holidays around the world for the past twenty years. Our goal is for you to enjoy your winter break so much that you will come back again and again.

Vanilla Ski has a number of unique features that ensure you have the best ski holiday possible. We are located in the Tarentaise valley, surrounded by the most extensive and varied skiing in the French Alps. We are experienced multi resort specialist; most of our clients will ski in at least four different resorts during a week’s stay. This combined with our expert resort knowledge and our close links to mountain guides and instructors ensures a unique skiing experience and client service second to none.

Finally and perhaps most of all, we place as much importance on you having a superb evening meal as we do on ensuring you have a day’s exhilarating skiing. We guarantee your week in the mountains will be the experience of a lifetime.
