The Company

Ski Miquel is more than just an inclusive ski holiday company, we are a family-run business operating from our office in Hove (near Brighton) with over 40 years’ experience in the travel industry, and we like to think we're pretty good at what we do.

The company was founded in 1980, after our owner and a colleague decided to start their own travel business.  Today we are a state-of-the-art cottage industry and we're proud of it.  Five permanent members of staff work for the company in our offices so that when you call or e-mail us you'll know exactly who you're talking to.  We don't like to hide behind e-mails or answerphone messages – We're upfront and personal, and we want to talk directly to our customers so that we can provide the best level of service for them again and again.

It's this close-knit work ethic that has turned Ski Miquel into the much-loved travel company it is today.  With five members of staff in each resort, we work hard to achieve the level of service that our customers have come to expect.  Creating a fun and friendly atmosphere in our chalets is our main aim, and we do this by ensuring that we hire the best staff.  We own most of our chalet-hotels, and 85% of our booking are either repeat bookings or word-of-mouth recommendations.

If you’re looking for a great company to work for during the winter season then you’ve found it!
