The Company

Ski Miquel is more than just an inclusive ski holiday company, we are a family-run business based 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 and has remained family run and with five permanent members of staff people know exactly who they're dealing with.  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 providing the best level of service for them again and again.
In resort, alongside high standards of service we aim to create a fun and friendly atmosphere in our chalets by ensuring that we hire the best staff.  It's this family atmosphere and work ethic that has turned Ski Miquel into the much-loved travel company it is today with 85% of our bookings are either repeat guests 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!
