HOW TO SAVE ON THE MOUNTAIN
Attention all skiers under the age of 25! The 4 Vallées is repeating the annual ski pass offer just for you.
The Mont4Card is a 12-month lift pass for the entire 4 Vallées - the largest ski domain in Switzerland that stretches from Bruson and Verbier through Nendaz and over to Veysonnaz and Thyon - for just CHF400.
It covers everyone aged 6 to 25. Children under the age of 6 continue to ski for free.
The Mont4Card can be used in conjunction with lift passes bought at the Family Rate. Family members who do not qualify for this youth ticket but who want to obtain the 10% family discount will still qualify. All the usual credentials are required.
The ski season in the 4 Vallées runs from November to April and includes some of Europe's most thrilling runs such as the legendary Mont-Fort to Tortin. The rest of the year, the Mont4Card works for mountain bike enthusiasts and high altitude hikers. There is plenty of scope for both during the long summer months.
LOOK FOR A PARTNER, FIND A DEAL
Skiers who already hold an annual lift pass can get 40% off the price of a 2018-19 annual lift pass simply by referring a new customer. And the best bit? The new customer will ALSO get a 40% discount.
A 4 Vallées annual pass usually costs CHF1,649. By introducing a new customer, the price for a renewal and for a new pass will be CHF989 each.

THE SIGN OF TRUE LUXURY
Have you noticed the stars twinkling all over Secret Alps? That is because we have been re-confirmed as a 5 star holiday home by the Swiss Tourism Federation (FST). Guests who know the property are already familiar with its discreet but luxurious charm. Here are a few of the most recent remarks: “The apartment was perfect. It’s extremely well equipped and ideally located.” And another: “It’s a really wonderful apartment and I could have spent all day just looking at the spectacular view.” Or: “You have a real gem of an apartment … it’s magnificent. Bravo!”
You don’t need to take their word for it. The FST applies strict criteria when classifying holiday accommodation. Apart from having to meet a long list of specific requirements for equipment, comfort, space, gadgets and furnishings, a 5 star property has to exude a sense of luxury. Secret Alps does not disappoint. All five stars are deserved. Come and see for yourself!
