A Quest To Stop Eternal Darkness

A classic fairy-tale of good against evil, set within the backdrop of an enchanting, wintery landscape. A chance encounter with some elves, deep in the snowy forests of Northern Sweden, and the youngest family members are set on a special quest to save the Arctic from eternal darkness…



Spectacular Ski Escapes

If all this seems too off-the-beaten-path, then perhaps you should consider a winter adventure in the Alps. From chic Courchevel 1850, to grand St. Moritz, or awe-inspiring Zermatt, to name a few old favourites. We’ll provide access to the most private and luxurious chalet bases, then sprinkle our magic throughout to elevate your skiing exploits.

From forays to secret and romantic backcountry cabins, where private chefs and musicians entertain; to snowmobile journeys into a winter never-never-land; or fun and engaging private mini-winter Olympic challenges or simply super-styling everywhere you go. Based On A True Story will take your alpine experience to another level to ensure you have everlasting memories.
