The Early Bird Catches The Worm

Be ski holiday savvy!

Why taking your ski holiday pre-Christmas is a smart & savvy thing to do!

Hurrah snow is on its way in Meribel!! According to weather forecasts we will begin to see the snow fall this weekend! The great news is that it is set to get colder over the next few weeks meaning that the snow should stick around and form an excellent base for the winter.

All this talk of snow has got us super excited and thinking about being on top of the beautiful mountain! If you are like us and cannot wait for the ski season to begin then we highly recommend getting those skis & snowboards dusted off and hitting the slopes pre-Christmas.

Here is why..

The slopes are quiet

Pure heaven!! Ski down slopes and take the chair lift straight back up without having to que for even 5 minutes. Make wide long turns or practice your quick short ones – do what you like without the fear of anyone behind you or skiing into you!

Value for money

Your holiday will be cheaper. You will experience the same fantastic chalet holiday, food and wine pre- Christmas but pay less for it. Not only that but flights are cheaper and even ski lessons are cheaper. Our friends at Marmalade have developed a pre-season week long ski course at the bargain price of €350 – that price is less than 4 hours instruction in peak weeks! Find out more about that here:

Skiing is guaranteed

We are so luckily to be based in one of the best ski resorts in the world – the 3 valleys. There are over 2,300 snow canons covering more than 50% of the ski area which is maintained by over 70 grooming machines each night. As soon as it is cold the snow will be falling on the slopes real or not.

Fresh and Festive

The whole resort is fresh and buzzing! From your chalet host, the piesters, the ski instructors, the restaurateurs and absolutely anyone you meet will be super excited to be in resort and on the slopes. You have to be there to experience this amazing buzz for yourself to truly understand it! Pair this with the excitement of it being nearly Christmas and you really will not find anywhere more festive!
