Ski Bonjour was set up in 2007 with the sole objective of providing outstanding catered chalets from where our guests can relax and enjoy everything that the world-famous ski resort of Tignes and Val d’Isère has to offer.
Although biased we truly believe that the Espace Killy ski area of Tignes and Val d’Isère has some of the best skiing in the world, so much so that two of our directors have made it their permanent home.
By focusing on just one ski area, albeit one of the largest in the world, and being part of the local community, we have developed strong relationships with local suppliers as well as having extensive knowledge and experience to ensure that we get the best value and service for our customers. Whether it is renting your skis, booking a lesson or needing to find out when the local shop is open we are able to help. It is also useful to have your owner’s in resort 24/7!
Our chalets vary in size and have differing facilities but there are some key themes that run throughout. Each have an experienced and highly trained chef, friendly and sociable hosts and all the chalets are fantastically located with great access to the ski-lifts and slopes. Many have additional facilities such as saunas and hot-tubs to help you relax and all our bedrooms have ensuite facilities or their own private bathroom.
As passionate skiers and having had our fair share of chalet holidays we know good food and excellent wine is an important part of everyone’s holiday. We spend many hours developing our menus and selecting our wine.
We have an excellent reputation and are well known for providing high quality ski holidays, which are exceptional value for our guests. Many of our guests return year after year and continue to recommend Ski Bonjour to their friends and family.
Our team in the UK are all passionate about skiing and snow-boarding and have first hand knowledge of all our properties and the resort itself. They are there to answer any questions and help you choose the chalet holiday that works best for your requirements.
Our belief is that our guests deserve the best of both worlds; a relaxed friendly atmosphere and the best standards of service and food. We aim to deliver that for every guest and ensure they enjoy their holiday experience.
As one of the original founders of Ski Bonjour, Steve came to skiing late, in fact he hadn’t set foot on a ski until his late 40s. Since then he has jumped in with two feet – initially becoming a BASI instructor before deciding to set up Ski Bonjour in 2007. Steve is responsible for all aspects of Ski Bonjour in France so its quite handy having him based in resort 24/7, 365 days per year.
He loves the mountain lifestyle and the vast difference between the calmness of the summer and the craziness of the winter.
Based in the UK Ali is responsible for all Ski Bonjour’s commercial activity including sales and marketing. He along with the rest of the UK based team look after all our customers from initial enquiry through to after sales service.

An outdoor fanatic, Ben spends every spare minute enjoying life in the mountains. During the winter he fills his time searching for powder and ski touring, during the summer things don’t slow down, he spends all his time exploring the alpine valleys whether it be climbing or on two wheels.
Another one who has been consumed by the mountains, Tatiana now calls the Espace Killy home having moved here in 2007 when it all started. Tatiana is predominantly responsible for our accounts and finances along with a myriad of other in resort administrative tasks.
