Tips For Planning A Christmas Ski Vacation

Jan 28, 2008
Christmas is the perfect time to plan a ski vacation. It's the peak of winter in most countries and the ski slopes are covered with snow. A white Christmas, the family all together, ski slopes to conquer by day and a warm fire in a ski chalet to look forward to at night; a Christmas ski vacation is the perfect way for any family to spend the Christmas holidays.

Choosing a Ski Resort

Ski slopes in different countries offer very different skiing experiences. In fact, it's safe to say that no two ski vacations at different ski resorts could ever be the same. Some ski slopes are meant for very experienced skiers whereas others, which have gentler slopes, are more appropriate for beginners. Ski resorts that offer a variety of slopes of different complexities are best for families with smaller kids.

Your budget is a major factor in deciding which ski resort you and your family choose to spend your Christmas vacation in. A ski-resort is by no means a cheap Christmas vacation idea. Ski resorts vary in their prices and many have peak-season and off-season rates. However, do keep in mind that Christmas is peak season at any ski-resort and their prices are likely to be steepest at this time.

Despite the high prices, all ski resorts almost all over the world are likely to be fully booked during the Christmas holidays, so you need to make your plans much, much in advance. Doing a search on the internet is the best way to find different ski resorts and to compare the different packages they offer. Remember the earlier you start your search, the more choices you will have to avail of. Short list a few ski resorts that suit your needs and contact them to clarify other queries you may have. Once you've found the perfect ski resort that meets all your requirements and is also within your budget you may want to consider paying a down payment in order to book the requisite number of rooms for your family.

It's never too soon to start looking for you're the perfect ski resort. Commencing your search a year in advance will give you a head start over all other families who have the same Christmas vacation plans.

Looking for Santa Claus at the ski resort

While looking for the perfect ski resort, don't forget what this vacation is really all about. A Christmas ski vacation needs to combine the skiing fun with the spirit of Christmas. Without it, the vacation will end up being just a family skiing vacation, fun, but not Christmassy.

When making your enquiries, expand your search to include the Christmas options in and around the area. Find out if there are any community activities that your family can participate in, even if it is in the town around the resort and not in the resort itself.

Also, you may want to consider taking along stockings and stocking stuffers for the whole family. While carrying gigantic gifts for the children is downright inconvenient, stockings filled with little gifts are an ideal way of carrying the spirit of Christmas everywhere you go.
