2016 Christmas.
Dec 24th 2016 returns on 31st Dec (Christmas Eve to New Year's Eve)

Christmas is a truly magical time to be in the mountains.

Can you think of a better place to be than being surrounded by snow covered peaks in all directions as you whoosh down an almost empty piste? Now “that” is the selfie you’ll want to send to your mates back in the UK.

After you rise for breakfast and, of course, have opened your prezzies, it’s time to set off for a relaxing day on the slopes. Around here snow covered Christmas trees aren’t just on cards, they are everywhere; its Christmas as you imagined when you were a child.

Top Tip - You'll notice that virtually everyone you meet will wish you a Happy Christmas so you'll want to respond by saying "buon Natale"

Ski resorts don’t close over Christmas, so if you’ve taken ski lessons your instructor will still be there, the slope side cafes will be open and all the lifts will be running.  The main thing you'll notice is that you have the slopes (almost) to yourself for the simple reason that the locals don’t tend to ski on Christmas Day – they'll be too busy preparing (and eating) 10 course breakfasts / brunches / lunches / teas / dinners / suppers / etc.

At the end of the day, after maybe a hot wine or two in the Apes Ski Bar, you can head back to your hotel for a full Christmas Dinner and the best bit is there’ll be no washing up to do.

We have arranged morning flights for this week so you will be in resort in time to get in some (well earned) relaxing time before the Christmas festivities begin. On the way home you again have a morning flight so you will be back in time to celebrate the New Year with your friends in the UK – and of course show them all your Christmas photos.
