Whether you are a beginner or expert skier, you can get so much enjoyment out of a winter holiday in the Alps. Fresh air, the sheer thrill and excitement of making your way down the mountain, the enjoyment of learning to ski with other like-minded people, the fabulous scenery, the great après-ski atmosphere.

WHERE IN THE WORLD?…

Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, Andorra, or even Lapland, Romania, Bulgaria, the US and Canada or Japan! – the choice is yours!

WHAT KIND OF EXPERIENCE CAN I EXPECT?…

If you like to join in an activity, love snowy climes and the great outdoors, then you will love skiing.

WHEN CAN I DO THAT?…

The season starts in early December, with good deals to be had for departures before Christmas. February and March is generally regarded as high season, with January and late March/April also offering good deals for those flexible about their departure dates.

DO I NEED ANYTHING SPECIAL TO DO THAT?…

You will need a warm waterproof ski jacket, salopettes (waterproof trousers), a warm hat, sun glasses and sun screen, plus some thick socks. It is possible to hire ski wear from some UK retailers.

WHERE DO YOU RECOMMEND?…

One of the most popular ski resorts in Europe is Zermatt in Switzerland – particularly suitable for intermediate to advanced skiers, it is traffic-free, picturesque, and offers amazing views of the Matterhorn. The standard of accommodation is also very high, with many hotels offering indoor pools and spas.
