What better way to ensure a white Christmas than in a ski resort? Christmas ski holidays give you a charming and traditional setting for enjoying the festivities with friends and family. Chalets and hotels are delightfully decorated, Christmas dinner is taken care of by the staff and you may even get Father Christmas stopping by for a visit!
