It's no secret that we love adventure. Although you can usually catch us somewhere warm, during the colder Winter months you'll find us laying tracks in fresh powder. This week we caught up with Bella Seel, Founder of bespoke travel companies ALS Ski & ALS Sun, whose knowledge & experience are unparalleled in the industry.
Tell us a bit about ALS Ski - what makes you guys different?
We have access to a number of private chalets that friends of ALS Ski own. We love to source the perfect chalet for our clients ski holidays. All of our team live and breathe ski.
When did you set up ALS Sun and why?
We set up ALS Sun this year, early 2019. We wanted to support our clients in other parts of the world when they are not skiing. A lot of our friends who have chalets, also have villas in like minded places, making it the perfect marriage.
Where's your favourite place to ski?
3 valleys - Courchevel and Meribel. I grew up skiing there and whenever I go back, it always feels like home. Even though I spent 10 years living in Verbier!
Where's your favourite place in the sun?
It's a toss up between the Turks & Caicos islands and the South of France… so different, but both so fantastic in their own ways.
What are your most played songs this year?
Highest love remix…. Steve Winwood was the original.
Best bar in the world?
Rickies in the TCI
Five Things you won't travel without?
1. A stand out suitcase like my Green Saint Luke one - always easy to pick out on the conveyor belt.
2. My Hunza G swimsuit, wherever I stay, if there is a pool, I will swim each AM.
3. A blanket/large scarf for flights - I ALWAYS get cold.
4. Games - travelling backgammon set and cards
5. The vanity one - my Chanel CC cream with SPF 50 in it, tinted moisturiser I wear EVERYDAY!
Favourite Saint Luke item?
The overnight bag - the dream!!
