Once you’ve tried a skiing holiday, with the fresh air, amazing views, and, of course, the apres ski and amazing food…. Well once you’ve tried skiing for the first time it’s something you do again, and again and again…

But learning to ski for the first time can be a daunting experience – even though every skier has, at one time or another, had their very first ski holiday. So we’ve teamed up with our friends at the Les 3 Vallées in France, the world’s largest ski area, to give one family the chance to become experts in one season. Yes, we said one season!

The Easy Rider competition!

The fantastique ‘Easy Rider’ competition  means you could win over £30,000 worth of ski holidays, ski equipment, ski lessons and more; and the amazing experience for your family to learn and perfect your ski skills in one season. The extremely lucky family will win FIVE ski holidays to Les 3 Vallées in France between December 2012 and April 2013 including:

  • Flights from London to Grenoble
  • Transfers from Grenoble to Les 3 Vallées
  • Accommodation in five resorts in the Les 3 Vallées region
  • Season lift passes for the full Les 3 Vallées region
  • Ski equipment for all the family
  • Ski clothes for all the family
  • Ski lessons for all the family


For the chance to win this once in a lifetime competition, all you have to do is to tell Les 3 Vallées why you would be a great choice to win in a short video. It could be that you are really sporty, but never thought you would be able to afford skiing. Or that you are a real whiz on you blog and will tell thousands of friends about about it. Or just that your family needs a new challenge…

Whatever the reason all you need to do is post your entry to YouTube and share that video on Les 3 Vallées’  Facebook page.

And if you’ve decided to take the plunge and try skiing for the first time this season – you won’t regret it! – here are a few of our useful guides on organising a ski trip for the first time, what you’ll need on your first ski holiday and general ski tips for beginners to get you started!
