The Holiski Card allows easy access to 10 resorts in the Compagnie des Alpes Domaines Ski area for the 2008-09 season.

This hands-free skipass, equipped with an RFID chip, is accepted by all ski terminals across the Holiski region and gives access to the slopes without queuing at the cash desks.

By subscribing to Holiski, it allows skiers and riders to have their credit or debit card debited the following month for only the days they actually skied.

The Holiski card gives direct access to the 10 high altitude resorts of Val d'Isère (Espace Killy), Meribel Alpina, Les Menuires, Paradiski and its massifs (Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry, La Plagne), Serre Chevalier, le Grand Massif, and Tignes (Espace Killy).

Card holders also benefit from reductions and promotional offers. The minimum discount for all of the days in the new season is 15 percent on the daily price of the chosen resort.

Subscription to Holiski is available on their Web site and costs £32 a year. Skipasses are sent out within 24 hours after subscribing. The subscription is automatically renewed Oct. 1 every year unless cancelled.

The Holiski card is aimed at regular skiers and boarders, particularly those who wish to access all the best resorts in the French Alps in complete freedom.
