Now is the time to book ski holidays for the next ski season. There are some tempting deals around, and those who get in early can expect to benefit in a number of ways. Low deposits are available, as are generous discounts. Special offers for groups and families, even some free lift passes for specific weeks, are being made available for a limited period.
A really great ski deal can be found by shopping around. Family parties may be interested in packages that include ski schools, children’s clubs and childcare. Groups can enjoy being with family and friends for a social holiday, perhaps staying in a cosy and warm mountain chalet or in one of the welcoming hotels near the piste, guaranteeing easy access to the slopes.
One alternative option for ski holidays is cross-country skiing. As a change from the crowded pistes, some resorts offer access to peaceful and sparsely inhabited rural areas, where cross-country skiing provides a wonderful way to enjoy a different kind of skiing experience. This is a chance to discover new landscapes and enjoy backcountry skiing in a veritable wilderness.
Cross-country enthusiasts can escape the crowded pistes and ski at their own pace through entrancing scenery. There are a variety of trails from which to choose, depending on ability, with different lengths and levels of difficulty. Challenging runs available include black and red runs for more experienced skiers. Always check out the details of what is offered by specific resorts before booking.
