If you’ve never managed to experience a white Christmas, then booking a ski holiday in December pretty much guarantees you’ll see snow. Skiing at Christmas means you’ll usually catch the start of the ski season, enjoy decent snowfall, and can spend lots of time on the slopes. Best of all, once you’re off the piste, you’ll be able to enjoy charming ski resorts and villages, which make the perfect backdrop for a Christmas break.

Family ski breaks

Those spending Christmas with their family will find a ski holiday the ideal way to spend time together. Book a resort that’s got excellent ski schools and nursery slopes, and the kids will be able to pick up new skills. Many hotels and larger chalets have in-house childcare, so you can enjoy the slopes in peace, or go out for some apres-ski. However, there are also plenty of ways you can spend time as a family over Christmas, with many ski resorts throwing special festive events, whether it’s the arrival of Santa, ice skating, or carolling. Events vary by country, with ski resorts in the USA and Canada usually really going all out on festive cheer.

Group skiing holidays

Another option for Christmas skiing is to get together a group of friends and rent a large chalet. This usually works out much cheaper per head than a hotel, and on occasions such as Christmas, it means you can socialise and enjoy spending time together. Snowfinders have a huge choice of chalets suitable for groups, and can book a Christmas ski holiday for a small group of six, or a huge group of over 100. Because we are experts in booking ski trips, we can take care of the logistics, so you simply need to pack your ski equipment and gifts.

All-inclusive ski holidays

If the least favourite part of Christmas is all the cooking and cleaning, then you might want to consider booking one of our all-inclusive ski packages. One price covers flights, accommodation, and transfers, as well as meals and unlimited drinks at your resort. This means you can spend as much time as possible on the slopes, having some family time, or simply relaxing and enjoying the views.

Christmas ski destinations

There’s a huge choice of destinations for Christmas ski holidays, and Snowfinders can help you find the right spot to suit your party. If you’re mostly confident skiers, you may want to try the challenging slopes of Val d’Isere or the charming village of Ischgl, both of which look beautiful in Christmas time, with the latter even hosting its own traditional market. If you have a mixed group with beginners and non-skiers, you might want to look for resorts that have a mixture of pistes, such as Jackson Hole or Aspen in the USA, both of which have a full program of Christmas events, and offer activities away from the slopes such as sledding and ice skating. 

If you want to book ski holidays at Christmas and need expert advice on the best destinations and accommodation, then call the experts at Snowfinders on 01858 466888.
