The Festive season is the most popular time of year for ski companies, with hundreds of people looking to head off for a Christmas spent on the slopes – and can you really blame them? There is no image more romantic than that of a white Christmas, but unfortunately that isn’t a guarantee for many of us. Sometimes to get that picturesque setting we have to travel to the snow ourselves – and some may argue that it would be a shame to be surrounded by snow without getting a spot of skiing in whilst your there!
Whilst there may not be enough time to book your piste-fix for the big day itself, your festive feeling doesn’t have to end when December 25th comes to a close, and you can still get to that snowy setting before this year is out. Scour through resorts to find special Christmas deals for cheap ski holidays – you never know when you might find free transfers or special deals for families (because where better to spend time with your loves ones than on the slopes?)
But where’s good to go? Choosing your perfect setting can be difficult with so many great ones to pick from, but for that traditional Christmas atmosphere you really can’t beat a resort such as the Ours Blanc in Alpe d’Huez, France.
Alpe d’Huez not only offers slopes that are suitable for all levels of skiers – so that none of the family will be left out of the fun – but the high mountains provide some breath taking scenery to ensure that your Christmas holiday is picture perfect! Alpe d’Huez also offers some of the best prices for ski holidays in the whole of France – so you don’t have to break the bank to have some fun on the slopes!
Although staying at home might be the most appealing way to spend the holiday for many people, there is something truly magical about a family ski holiday over the festive season, and who can deny that a beautiful snowy mountain beats that dreaded rain and dreary conditions?
If you’re wishing that you booked a ski holiday this festive season, don’t despair, there’s still plenty of deals to choose from to ensure that you get your white Christmas!
