1. Holiday festivities

Whether it’s a Christmas Eve torchlight descent in La Tania or a stunning New Years Eve fireworks display  in Morzine, there are always a number of holiday activities going on in resort. You’ll be sure to find something that will make your holiday unique.

2. Avoid THOSE relatives

No need to worry about those distant relatives showing up and overstaying their welcome. A ski holiday is a lovely excuse to say, “see you next year.”

3. No washing up

Have your chalet staff prepare the perfect turkey and take care of all the trimmings for you. Best part: dishes are also on them, so you can relax and enjoy the day.

6. Wake up to a White Christmas

Forget the chance of rain, you’ll have a chance of snow. Picture yourself waking up Christmas morning, pulling open the curtains and seeing fluffy, white goodness covering the mountain tops. Sigh…

7. Wide open slopes

Even though the holidays are busy weeks, Christmas Day and New Years Day are generally quite empty on the slopes. Get some time to yourself and your family on those freshly groomed pistes.

8. Catch fresh snow

Resorts will have just opened and there’s bound to be untracked lines somewhere on the mountain.

10. It’s special

People are smiling and everyone is grateful to be there. It’s a magical time to be on the mountain and will be a memory you keep for a long time to come.
