Half term ski holidays are also often the best time to book a catered chalet for smaller families, because many operators allow children this week even if not booking out the whole chalet.

which half term ski holiday?
Half term ski holidays are fantastic fun because the snow is at its best and so is the company – with slopes full of families and teachers even the lively après ski of legendary party towns like Meribel has a more friendly and less rowdy ambiance. Half term skiing is popular for many reasons but for many it’s Hobson’s choice... some of us simply have to ski this week to avoid taking the children out of school. With that in mind, here are our top tips for finding and securing the best half term ski deal before everyone else has booked the best resorts dry:
||Half term ski holidays in places like Courchevel, Val d’Isere and St Anton will get fully booked well in advance. If you want to ski in a world class resort and it has to be at half term, you need to book early.
||By far the most popular half term ski accommodation type and always the first to become fully booked. Definitely one to book early if you’re certain you want to ski half term on a catered chalet holiday. The most popular holidays of all are skiing half term in a top resort and staying in a catered chalet – if this describes what you’re looking for, it’s worth getting your skates on.
||Easily the cheapest way to ski at half term, if there are 4 or more of you. Half term self catering ski holidays are best value when you have a group, because more apartments are for 4 or more people (ie those prices go up a lot due to under-occupancy costs, if you have only 2 people in a 4 person apartment). If you’re going self catering purely for budgetary reasons, you might also want to consider a half board holiday in a less popular resort because a half board half term ski holiday in Bulgaria may well be the same price as self catered half term skiing in France.
||If you don’t mind where you ski for half term, then you can always wait until the last month before departure and go bargain hunting. As with all late deals, the later you leave it, the lower the prices, but also the poorer the choice. It’s worth being aware of the danger of taking this approach – half term is the absolute most “peak date” of the whole skiing year – if you can’t accept Andorra or Bulgaria then waiting for a late ski deal at half term is not the right strategy for you.
