Richelle Blanken

Richelle was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, where she started skiing Mt. Hood at the tender age of 3. She spent her high school and college years, at the University of Utah, ski racing. After graduating from college Richelle lived in Mexico where she enjoyed the beach, playing volleyball, and drinking Corona. Six months passed and she missed the mountains and ski racing so much that she returned to Oregon to get back into competition shape for the European ski-racing season. Richelle was a member of the US Ski Team from 1991-1994, competing in the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France.After retiring from the US Ski Team Richelle moved to Florida and formed Alpine Adventures with her brother Rick. Alpine Adventures began by organizing ski groups to Europe, however, they quickly recognized a need for other adventures and the company grew. Richelle’s favorite places to ski are off-piste in Courmayeur, Italy and Chamonix, France.Her preferred non-snow adventures are rafting in Costa Rica and kayaking in Thailand.

AJ spent most of her childhood summers, with her family, exploring the National Parks, small towns, and out-of-the way places in the western and mid-western United States. She has an easier time telling you where she hasn’t been in the U.S., as opposed to where she has been. She spent three seasons working at a small luxury guest ranch in Wyoming and enjoys sharing her knowledge of the West.

AJ completed her B.B.A in International Business at Florida Atlantic University in 2004. As a result of working for Alpine Adventures, she went back to school, finishing her Master of Science degree, at the University of Central Florida, in Hospitality and Tourism Management in 2009.AJ now spends most of her time teaching the “Travel & Hotel Management” program at a small university in Ohio, where she enjoys sharing her experiences with her students.

Amanda: Maybe! Cancellations do happen and sometimes there are gaps in availability. Be prepared to pay the going rate. You may also need to be flexible with your travel plans and the type of accommodation that has availability.

Miranda: We cannot guarantee that we can get something booked from up to thirty days prior to travel, but Alpine Adventures will always inquire if there is an opening in effort to give the fullest and most in-depth personalized journey for you and your family.

April: Yes, but since this a very popular time options will be limited. Many ski components like ski school and lift tickets can sell out so we highly recommend booking in advance.

Miranda: There are several discounts that can be applied depending on your resort of interest. Please inquire with one of our travel experts about your dream resort to discover what discounts may apply to your dream vacation.

Holly: Some resorts in France offer free lift passes to seniors over the age of 75.

Richelle: Absolutely! Kids-ski-free deals are fantastic opportunities offered by select resorts. Essentially, when parents purchase their ski pass, their kids get to hit the slopes for free at participating resorts. It’s an amazing way to make family ski trips even more enjoyable and budget-friendly!

Miranda: If any of our partner resorts offer kids-ski-free deals, they typically require one child under a specified age to be accompanied by at least one full-paying adult for the offer to apply. Please note that in Europe, this age threshold can be as young as 12-14, depending on the child’s size.

Amanda: In some places up to a year in advance.

Richelle: You’re in luck! You can start planning your dream ski vacation as early as one year in advance. That means you can get ahead of the game and secure the perfect accommodations and slopeside fun for an unforgettable winter getaway!

Miranda: It is NEVER too soon to inquire about getting your components booked! In fact, the earlier you plan your trip, the more likely it is that you can score extra deals by ordering products or rooms that fall under early booking special rates! You should begin to look at ski components such as lessons, rentals, and lift tickets the moment you decide to take a ski trip. Any of our Alpine Adventures travel experts can assist you with any questions you may have.

April: Usually, you can start booking your ski vacation about a year in advance. However, in certain destinations like Europe, bookings might not open until May for the upcoming season. It’s always good to keep an eye out for these details, and we’re here to help you navigate the process with a smile!

Amanda: Not always. A condo can be less expensive pending the number of people traveling and staying in a single unit, location/luxury level of the property, eating habits, length of trip, etc. However, it could also be more expensive given many of the same previously listed reasons.

Richelle: It really depends! Sometimes a hotel might be cheaper, but it’s not always the case—especially if you’re traveling with a family of four or more. There are lots of factors to consider, and we’re here to help you find the perfect option that fits your budget and needs!

Miranda: In many cases, yes, a hotel can be less expensive than a condo. However, it all depends on where you’re planning to stay and what your preferences are. For personalized advice and specific pricing details tailored to your needs, feel free to reach out to one of our travel experts—they’ll be delighted to assist you further!

April: It’s not always straightforward—sometimes it depends on the location! We’re here to help you navigate the options and find the best fit for your budget and preferences. Let’s explore together and make sure you have the perfect accommodations for your trip!

Amanda: It depends! What is your skiing ability and does it match the run that the ski in/out property is on? How many members of your party ski and will they be able to utilize the ski in/out location? Where in the resort is the property located and does that match your vacation style?

Richelle: Ski-in/ski-out accommodations are totally worth it. It’s the ultimate convenience and luxury, allowing you to maximize your time on the mountain and make the most of every moment of your ski trip. Plus, the views and atmosphere are unbeatable! Investing a little extra for ski-in/ski-out is totally worth every penny for an unforgettable experience on the slopes!

Miranda: Yes. Unless you have your own transportation, or you are very familiar with the resort, ski-in ski-out will ensure you’re able to simply step out of the door and begin skiing, which has an immeasurable value. Some resorts in Europe remain free of gas powered vehicles, and many resorts in Europe have everything available within a very convenient walking distance, so in this instance or other instances similar, ski-in and ski-out isn’t always necessary.

April: Ski-in/ski-out accommodations can be a fantastic option, especially in certain regions where they truly enhance the ski experience. It all depends on where you’re headed and what you’re looking for in your ski trip.

Richelle: Always a good idea. Trip insurance offers peace of mind for unexpected situations or emergencies. It’s like having a safety net for your travels, ensuring you’re covered no matter what. It’s a smart choice for a worry-free adventure!

Amanda: I always do when I travel and I highly recommend it to all my clients. To me, trip insurance offers protection in the event of flight delays, cancellations due to weather, or if there are any accidents on the slopes (among many other things). You take out car insurance for protection when you drive, why not protect yourself and your vacation?

Miranda: YES! Please get trip insurance. There are so many possibilities of things going wrong, that you want to make sure that you and your loved ones are covered. Most circumstances involving the need for trip insurance are rare, however it’s not worth the risk on even a fraction of a chance when it comes to the lives and livelihood of your families. Even expert skiers are subject to accidents. You do not want to take that chance.

April: Absolutely, getting trip insurance is a wise move. It provides essential coverage for unexpected situations during your travels, offering peace of mind and ensuring you’re protected throughout your trip.

Richelle: Rent. Take your boots but rent kid and poles. Try the latest models.

Miranda: Looking from the perspective of international travel, it’s better to rent. Of course, please don’t allow this to deter you should you want to bring your own skis. However, ski rentals are so inexpensive in Europe with a direct effort to compete with the North American ski market, that it is well worth the slight cost to leave your favorite ski boots at home.

April: Renting skis is often the best choice due to convenience, especially considering the cost and hassle of transporting your own equipment. Rental shops offer a variety of high-quality options suited to different skill levels and conditions, allowing you to find the perfect gear without the burden of carrying it around.

Amanda: The most common peak season times are Festivus (Christmas/New Year), President’s Day week, and during Spring Break time frames. Some resorts have additional ‘peak’ times based on annual events that are popular – ex: Sundance Film Festival.

Richelle: The peak seasons for skiing generally occur during the Christmas holiday period, which is followed by Presidents’ Week, and then the March Spring break timeframe. These periods tend to see higher demand for accommodations, lift tickets, and other amenities, so it’s advisable to plan and book well in advance if you’re considering visiting during these times.

Miranda: In North America and Europe, you’ll find peak ski seasons from December to April. Meanwhile, in South America and Australia, the prime skiing months vary slightly due to their reversed seasons.

Miranda: Peak seasons typically revolve around festive periods like Christmas and New Year’s, as well as holidays such as Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Presidents’ weekend. Additionally, March tends to be busy due to spring breaks. In Europe, February sees heightened activity across the continent.

Richelle: To score the best deals, it’s all about being ahead of the game. Aim to book your trip as early as you can, ideally before September hits. This way, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from and increase your chances of snagging those sought-after bargains before they’re gone.

Miranda: As early as possible!! As soon as you decide to make the trip, preferably. That’s where we come in!

April: Booking early is crucial for securing the best deals. The sooner you make your plans, the more likely you are to find great savings.

Amanda: Savings! Money and time saved when you let us package a trip together for you.

Richelle: You save money getting a package and save time. Don’t need to Winair in line to buy lift tickets

Miranda: This is usually helpful, unless you do not plan to ski. A package typically will make everything cheaper. However, please note that most packages do not allow for substitutions.

Amanda: No. Conditions are based on Mother Nature and while ski resorts can give their best predictions based on weather patterns and historical trends, there is no way to guarantee conditions.

Richelle: No. Mother Nature is un predictable.

Miranda: All ski resorts do very well with keeping you informed about live weather conditions via their website.

April: Ski resorts don’t guarantee good snow conditions. However, they strive to provide optimal skiing experiences by employing snowmaking technology and grooming techniques.

Amanda: Ask about BOGO (Buy One Get One) and Ski Free/Stay Free deals! Various resorts offer great specials for skiers/boarders that are able to book early. A select few resorts offer the opportunity to ski free on their arrival day (restrictions apply, of course.)

Miranda: Some of the resorts offer free night stays when purchasing a set number of nights, every resort is different.

Amanda: Just you! Renting a house is all about budget, size of the home, and what you want from your trip. Some homes may have rules regarding the renter’s age. Generally there is a maximum number of people per home but not typically a minimum.

Richelle: As many as you want. Depends on if people are ok sharing rooms/beds. We have houses of all sizes.

Miranda: A good suggestion is a minimum of 4, however no less than 2.

April: Depends on the size of the house.

Amanda: Spring skiing is fun and is generally less expensive (many resorts consider Spring “low” or “shoulder” season, which means a great deal for anyone looking to tear up the slopes!) Skiers/Boarders should be cautioned that they are at the mercy of the snow-gods for late skiing conditions.

Richelle: While March is typically considered high season for skiing, which may not result in lower costs, rates tend to decrease after Easter. It’s worth considering the post-Easter period for potentially more budget-friendly options without compromising on the ski experience.

Miranda: Typically it can be, but it is because they cannot guarantee ski or snow conditions.

April: While it can vary depending on the resort and specific timing, going on a ski vacation in the spring often presents opportunities for savings. As the winter season winds down, some resorts may offer discounted rates on accommodations, lift tickets, and packages. Additionally, spring skiing can provide enjoyable conditions with milder weather and longer daylight hours. It’s worth exploring springtime options for a potentially more affordable and enjoyable ski experience.

Richelle: No, lift passes are the same regardless of days.

Amanda: Sometimes yes and sometimes no. It should be noted that for those wanting to enjoy the beautiful European resorts many only work within a Saturday-Saturday or Sunday-Sunday time frame.

Miranda: Not a lot less expensive, however no less services are included with mini-weeks. I highly suggest to take an entire week, that way you do not chance feeling rushed on your trip.

April: Not necessarily in the high season.

Amanda: A package includes multiple components for your trip, and include services from one or more companies. A deal or offer is generally a savings offering from one company and may have special restrictions regarding dates or book by dates.

Richelle: A deal or offer is still a package but will reflect special prices a hotel or resort May offer.

Miranda: A package typically refers to a bundled arrangement that includes various components of a vacation, such as accommodation, lift tickets, and sometimes additional amenities like meals or activities. On the other hand, a deal or offer often refers to a special promotion or discounted rate offered by a hotel or resort. While both may include similar elements, deals or offers tend to focus on specific pricing incentives rather than comprehensive package inclusions.

Richelle: Summer time.

Miranda: Ultimately at the end of the ski season, and remain lower until festive.

Amanda: Prices will typically drop after the New Year, they will go up again around the President’s Day Weekend and then taper back down. Prices drop into “low” season towards the end of March. Most ski resorts close around the 2nd or 3rd week of April.

Richelle: Starting December until April.

Miranda: Between Christmas and 5 days prior, as well as New Years. Spring Break is also included in a price increase.

Richelle: We get lower prices and bundle them together.

Miranda: Having more than one component, you’re more likely to get a discount on each individual component, rather than just a singular item.
