choosing christmas ski holidays
Christmas ski holidays can be magical, whether taken with children or as an adult Xmas ski break, but its important to be clear exactly what you're looking for when choosing and booking a Christmas ski deal. Here we've put together a list of top priorities that cover what most people skiing at Christmas are looking for and, if you spot your main wants and needs below, you'll understand better what to look for when choosing the best ski resorts for Christmas and the best Christmas ski deal for you in particular:
||If your main priority is the skiing or snowboarding at Christmas, then you need to choose from the more snow sure Christmas ski resorts, which boast great early season snow. There's a lot of truth in the ski holiday rule that says, if you're going early or late (in the season) you should go high. The northern European ski resorts which go big on festive extras like father Christmas and the like tend to have quite limited ski areas, so they're not the best for avid snow lovers.
||To really feel the Christmas spirit its worth considering skiing at Christmas in a resort which goes big on Xmas itself as an event . Lapland resorts have sleigh rides for a romantic trip and you can even visit Santa if you're so inclined. Whatever your yuletide dreams entail, just claim it's for the kids and indulge them while skiing somewhere like Finland or Norway - the ski areas won't be as big, but the early season snow should be good, as they're close to or inside the arctic circle.
|Best of Both
||To enjoy a really cool Yule with both great skiing and also bucket loads of Christmas cheer, you can choose a very high and very big ski resort which will have both awesome high and snow sure skiing and have a town/resort which is big enough to throw some great events to celebrate on Christmas day. Courchevel and St Anton are two examples of ski resorts which are great fun at Christmas, and have large ski areas which go high enough to afford great skiing in the early season.
snow sure christmas ski resorts
While altitude doesn't matter nearly so much when choosing half term ski holidays, it really does come into play when choosing a great skiing area for New Year ski holidays, Easter ski holidays and Christmas ski holidays. The crucial thing to remember when checking the altitude of your Xmas skiing is that it's the altitude of the top and bottom of the ski area which matters... not the altitude of the resort itself. Your choice of Christmas ski holiday will be limited to the less charming purpose-built high altitude French resorts if you go by resort altitude alone. Instead check out the altitude of the slopes and you'll spot hidden gems like Mayrhofen which has a terrific après ski scene in the relatively low resort and a big gondola up to the higher ski area which is very also big indeed.
