Airbnb's Highest Ever European Listing Goes Live at 2700 Metres
Acrophobes look away now. The world renowned ski resort of Courchevel in France is set to make a ski lover’s dream come true by listing one of its famous cable cars exclusively on Airbnb for one night only. For the first time ever to it will be possible spend the night in a Saulire cable car, suspended 2700 metres above Courchevel and waking up in prime position to hit the slopes the next morning.
On 6 March 2015 one lucky winner and three of their guests will reach for the stars in the cable car, which will be completely transformed in just a matter of hours after a day of ferrying skiers up the mountain, into a cosy cocoon for the night, complete with a bed and living room.
After climbing the ski runs by snowmobile, the four guests will be greeted with traditional mulled wine at the Saulire Summit. Suspended over the Combe de Saulire, highly prized by the best freeriders, the guests will be served a typical savoyard dinner of cheese and pork fondue. They will then tuck in for the night at the very top of the Saulire, the highest point of Courchevel. In the morning, they will have the privilege of laying down the “first tracks” over an untouched snow run.
Adeline Roux, Director of Courchevel Tourism, said: “We are happy to offer a unique experience of the mountain to four lucky winners who will discover Courchevel from an unprecedented angle! We thrive on challenge and take pride in opening up new possibilities”
James McClure, General Manager UK & Ireland at Airbnb, added: “Travellers who choose Airbnb are looking for experiences rather than simply a place to stay. This night in a majestic and unexpected setting joins thousands of ski-friendly listings around the world and will remain in the four winners’ memories forever”.
For a chance to win this unique experience, visit Courchevel’s listing on Airbnb no later than 25 February and tell the host why you would like to spend the night in the Saulire cable car. The contest is open to families or groups of friends, four people maximum. All terms and conditions of the contest are available on www.airbnb.co.uk
