The ski season may be coming to a close but plenty of people are already looking ahead and booking their spot in the mountains for next winter. With plenty of early booking offers available for all group sizes, it’s never too early to start dreaming of next winter’s ski trip. Here are our top 5 reasons why you should start thinking about securing your ski holiday sooner rather than later.
5. Getting your place on peak dates
With recent legislation prohibiting parents from taking children out of school in term time, there is even more demand for holidays during peak dates. The festive period is popular for groups and families alike as the mountains create the perfect backdrop for the best Christmas and New Year getaway – is there anything better than waking up to fresh snow on Christmas Day?
When most schools in England and Wales begin half term in February it also conflicts with school holidays in Paris, ‘Zone A’ regions of France, and Belgium. Any families that take their ski holiday in half term knows how busy this week can be at airports and in the larger resorts so it is even more important to book early to get the best choice of flights and accommodations to make your week as squabble-free as possible. With hiking flight prices around these dates, the best offers are through package deals.
After the incredible snowfall at the end of this winter we are expecting Easter to be a very popular date for keen skiers and snowboarders that want an end of season fix.
4. Low deposits
As well as securing the best accommodation in your favourite resort, if you book now you can pay a low deposit from just £150 pp and pay off the rest over the summer.
3. Peace of mind
Put your deposit down and look forward to your next adventure in the mountains. We all love a countdown, so you can start getting excited and begin counting down the weeks till ski season (we’ve started ours already!) If you love planning, you can now start to think about other ways to make the most of your ski holiday and start thinking about the best ski areas, top restaurants and the greatest après to make your week away the best ski trip ever. For inspiration take a look at our most popular ski chalets.

1. Secure your favourite spot on the mountain
Booking early means getting the best choice of accommodation in the finest locations in resort. This is extremely important for families who are looking for their own chalet for the week, or a group of friends desiring a chalet with a hot tub, or if you are like me and have to have a ski in – ski out chalet so you can make the most of your time on the mountain.
