About Us

The Oxford Ski Company, a specialist luxury travel agency, was founded by Rupert Longsdon in 1998 and along with Mark Gibbins, Director, and our specialist team, we've been providing the ultimate, tailor-made skiing holidays ever since.

We spent years running several of the Alps' first luxury catered chalets and have since devoted the last decade to acting purely as an expert agent, establishing ourselves as an unrivalled authority on the best skiing holidays available.

Luxury Ski Holidays at Every Turn

The first property in our exclusive collection was the Domaine de la Baronne, the winter residence of a baroness and is still one of our favourites amongst a carefully inspected portfolio of 90 fantastic hotels and more than 450 privately owned and operator-run chalets spanning France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, the United States and Canada.

Luxury Ski Expertise

Our expertise is based on years of meticulous and extensive research and we believe our specialist experience is quite simply unmatchable. The Oxford Ski Company are a close-knit team who live and breathe skiing - we are passionate about what we do and make regular visits to every property and resort we feature, putting the greatest emphasis on first class personal service and offering up-to-date, unbiased advice.  We constantly strive to keep ahead of the game in order to meet the demands of our discerning clients and have all worked in ski resorts across the world for at least a season or more. Why not take a moment to Meet the Team?

In 2011, we founded The Luxury Chalet Collection - our pick of the top 20 most luxurious properties available to rent in the world for the latest season. It provides testament to our years of experience in luxury skiing. Each new winter sees the launch of more and more amazing new properties, all competing to push the boundaries of magnificence and re-write the definition of 'luxury'. Through this collection we present to you the definitive selection of those truly special places that stand apart from the rest.

2011 also saw the launch of our summery sister - Oxford Private Travel, a prestige, hand-picked collection of luxury villas, yachts, private islands and summer Alpine retreats for tailor-made holidays across Europe and beyond. Our expert summer team know everything in the carefully inspected portfolio inside-out and share the 'nothing is too much trouble' ethos of The Oxford Ski Company, offering unrivalled knowledge and impartial advice.

SIMPLY LOOK NO FURTHER - we are passionate about what we do and how we do it.
