Christmas brings to mind an image of snow-laden ground, sledging, husky dogs, warm clothes, hot cocoa, and a roaring log fire, right?
How often is that image actually correct?
Not many of us actually get to see a white Christmas, but to experience a real one is something really to behold, and a true Christmas dream.
If you’re sat there nodding your head, yearning to see that real wintery scene this festive season, why not book a ski break for your Christmas time, and spend your holiday season high in the snowy mountains?
Skiing is massively popular during the winter months regardless of whether it’s Christmas or not, but when done in conjunction with the festive season, you could be looking at serious fun, luxury, and beautiful scenery to decorate your Christmas time – memories to keep forever.
Log cabin breaks are obviously iconic of winter ski holidays, but if you want to up the luxury on your snowy Christmas break, then look at staying in catered accommodation, such as a stay in catered chalets at La Plagne, enjoying true French rest and relaxation, in beautiful surroundings. This means you don’t have to worry about cooking, and your Christmas dinner will be all done for you.
France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Slovenia – the list of destinations goes on, and it’s really a case of where calls out to you. You don’t need to be an expert skier either, as all resorts tend to have ski schools for total beginners, helping you learn a new skill during your time away, and experience that white Christmas you’ve always dreamed of. You don’t even have to worry about equipment, because you will be able to book equipment hire onto the cost of your holiday for budget prices if you shop around, and ski passes at the same time. All it takes is a little research.
Whilst there’s no denying that any kind of Christmas break is going to be a little more costly to book than other types of holidays, simply because of the time of year, there are ways around that, and the best is to book as far in advance as possible. You can take advantage of deals, and give yourself more time to save up if you get your act together sooner, rather than later.
If you’ve never tried a ski holiday, Christmas is the ideal time to do it. All you need to factor into your planning is giving yourself enough time to get to the airport, because adverse weather has a habit of affecting travel plans at this time of year, as well as crowds from those traveling home to loves ones for Christmas, or indeed, heading away for their own spot of ski fun.
So, if you’re sat looking at the TV, watching endless advertisements for mince pies, Christmas shopping, and deals on food for the big day, and you’re dreaming of escaping to somewhere truly wintery, why not consider a ski break for something totally different?
