We recently returned from a holiday to the newly opened BlackRock Ski Lodge. This trip opened our eyes to what a ski holiday could be like. All our previous experiences have been of a mass produced almost military 'Ski-athon's' that left you more tired after than when you arrived. Holidays that lead to you having to compromise on at least one aspect of the trip, Serivice, accomodation, food or even stresses through transfers.
What we were introduced to was a Chalet and hosts that enabled you to relax and trust that you are truey getting something that is different and a cut above. We experienced attention to detail throughout our time there, in the purpose built amazing Chalet, the transfers (in crazy weather conditions), the in-house ski fittings (where the ski rental guys come to you!) and ski guiding arranged through Paul and Lizzy, it was top notch. So trusting were we that we also allowed BlackRock to introduce us to Ski touring with a local guide (Walking up the mountain with skins on the soles of your ski's & then off-pesting back)..Somethiing we would never had considered before last week..
If you are looking for a 5 star experience in the hands of genuine people who care about your experience from start to finish, who seem to have a passion for sport and the mountain life then BlackRock is a for you. They will be seeing us again.
