What a brilliant start to the ski season we are seeing, with ample snowfall in virtually every ski resort. If you are still dithering as to where you want to spend your Christmas and New Year, why not book yourself an amazing last minute ski deal? There are still some left, so snap one up for you and your family or friends and take advantage of a late getaway. No pun intended, but you need to get your skates on as Christmas is only eight days away and your choice is, Val Thorens, La Plagne, Zermatt, Val d’Isere or Les Gets.
There are some great skiing and snowboarding on offer, but this time of year offers the holiday maker a touch more than that. The ski resorts go all out, to decorate the villages and create a magical winter wonderland. Even non skiers will head to these resorts to spend the festive period with friends and loved ones. Children especially are excited to play in the snow, build a snowman and you can see the delight on their faces when Father Christmas makes an appearance as he always does. Après ski is also ramped up with log fires, warm mulled wine and delicious treats to make your mouth water. Join in with carol singing then dance the night away to Christmas tunes, to get you in the mood for the big day. So, why not make this Christmas one to remember and book a Christmas holiday.
