Alpine Luxury Chalets

Alpine Luxury Chalets was first established in 1992 and has been under the same ownership and management ever since our first day in business. When considering the longevity of our ownership and management this makes us the most established ski holiday booking agency in the UK. Back in 1992 no one had mobile phones and the internet wasn’t even a pipe dream. It says something that we have successfully rolled with the times and are still in today’s modern world adhering to our original principles of professionalism, honesty and integrity. 

Earl Knudsen was the founding partner and was joined by Simon Hoskyns in 1995. Both came from a background of working winter seasons in the ski resorts of the Alps and the head offices of ski holiday companies based in London – Earl from Supertravel, and Simon from Powder Byrne.

Earl and Simon have over the last 30+ years built a superb consultancy team at Alpine Answers which is widely regarded as the best in the business. Sam Dobson has been with Alpine Answers since 2001 and heads up our Operations Department.   


Safe In Our Hands

Alpine Luxury Chalets is a trading name of Alpine Answers. This means that all clients of Alpine Luxury Chalets are financially protected under the ABTA bond held by Alpine Answers. Furthermore, clients booking a package holiday through us that includes flights are also financially protected by our ATOL license. As a member of ABTA we follow a code of conduct which ensures our business operates to exacting professional standards.

Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. However, ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed. Where clients book holidays but arrange their own travel to and from the resort they may be financially protected under a different scheme such as ABTA, the Travel Trust Association, Association of Independent Tour Operators, ABTOT or some other body. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking.
