We don’t believe in off-the-shelf packages - we tailor-make holidays.

  • Tell us what you want to do. Whether you have detailed plans or just a vague idea, get in contact – we have knowledge, ideas and expertise.
  • We build a tailored itinerary. Once you’ve received it, we can answer any further questions and refine it until you are completely happy.
  • Book it. When you are satisfied with all the arrangements, we ask you to complete a booking form and pay a deposit, at which point we start confirming everything.

Different Snow is a fully bonded tour operator, which means we automatically take responsibility for your whole holiday, offering you 100% financial security.

It’s completely self-contained with the full spectrum of resort services, thus no car is needed as your room is only an elevator ride away from the ski slopes, the dining room and all facilities. There are 123 comfortable rooms, traditionally in design, and fully equipped with a safe, mini bar, telephone, hairdryer and Wi-Fi connection. Each has either beautiful views of the Laguna del Inca or the Valley. There are double rooms, suites or family apartments.

It’s full board, the food is excellent, and the facilities and amenities are too numerous to itemize out here. Let’s just say that you’ll want for nothing – except a TV in the room. And we think that this is magnificent, creating the friendly and communal vibe which pervades.  In the evening you can relax in the Jacuzzi or pool, and after, enjoy drinks at the bar or head to the cinema. However, if you’re anything like you’ll simply be in the bar sharing you days’ adventures with new-found friends.  

Dinner is at 8:30pm, and this takes you through to the live music which goes on until midnight. For the committed, the night ends with some bad Dad-dancing in the discotheque.

The décor of the dining room is dominated by the leather-panelled walls that give the feel of historic elegance, and the views across the lake and the ski area are stunning. The main dining room is generally abuzz with conversation and is a major social centre of the hotel. The tables come in a variety of configurations so you can form groups or if you want to have a romantic dinner for two that’s also fine.

Rooms have telephones and safes, and all have private bathrooms with a shower and tub. They have Twin Rooms, Double Rooms and Apartments which are  two connecting rooms, one with two beds and the other with two or four bunk beds - deal for groups or families of four to six people. Rooms on the sixth floor are the premium options, with wonderful views from balconies.

There are actually also another four chalets - set away from the hotel. Chalets A-1 and B01 have three bedrooms and two bathrooms and can accommodate up to eight. B-2 also accommodates eight people, but has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Chalets C1 and C4 can accommodate four people and have two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
