DISCOUNTS FOR SKI HIRE
We can offer a range of special deals on all the essentials that you need for a great ski holiday. We are delighted to have arranged a whopping 20 per cent discount on the rental of all ski equipment from Mariéthoz Sports, the specialist company. Mariéthoz Sports has a shop and ski lockers right beside the Tracouet lift station and another shop in the centre of the resort opposite the Nendaz Tourism office.
Another new arrival in Nendaz this season is AlpineMojo. It is operating in partnership with Mariéthoz Sports and offers flexible private lessons. The idea is that an instructor is booked for a set price for so many hours. The person who has booked has the freedom to use that lesson period either for him/herself or can include other friends or family to turn it into a group. The cost, however, is unaltered. The maximum number of participants is 8.
Secret Alps guests receive 5% discount at AlpineMojo.
ARRIVE AND RELAX
Instead of the mad dash at the start of the holiday when you have to pick up skis and lift pass while trying to orient yourself with a new resort, we have devised a way of allowing you to take it easy.
We will advise on how to pre-book all the necessary items so that when you arrive, you collect what you need and can then relax with an extra Secret welcome at the Edelweiss Restaurant.
