Crystal Finest doubles number of luxury properties to Europe’s premier ski resorts

Crystal Finest today launches its largest ever winter collection of stylish hotels and ski chalets in premier resorts. This season, Crystal Finest offers more than double the number of fine properties and has added five new top class ski resorts.

The winter 2007/8 brochure features no fewer than 42 four and five star hotels and 28 exquisite chalets in Austria, Canada, France, Italy, Switzerland and USA (details see attached fact sheet).

Luxurious accommodation ranges from quaint, traditional chalets, which are ideal for families and small to large chalets suitable for groups. We also offer a wide range of hotels carefully selected for skiers who appreciate the finer things in life.

New resorts are Ischgl in Austria, Selva Val Gardena in the Italian Dolomites and Davos, Klosters and St Moritz in Switzerland.

Gareth Crump, product and marketing director, said: “To meet the fast growing demand for the finest ski holidays, we have once more doubled the programme to provide an even bigger choice of highest standard accommodation in the very best ski resorts. Crystal Finest is designed for those for whom only the very best will do! ‘
