new this festive ski season - a special visitor...

Just because you're away from home doesn't mean the kids will be forgotten by Santa; you can take them away on a magical Christmas ski holiday and still enjoy the festive perks!

Before bed on that special eve, be sure to leave out a glass of sherry, a few mince pies and (of course) a nice juicy carrot for our visitor’s red nosed friend and maybe, as long as everyone is good of course…there might be a little something under the tree when the children wake up...

During selected dates in December, Father Christmas dons his skis as he travels to all of our European catered chalets to bring children aged 2-11 a small gift with their name on it!

As a little Christmas bonus (because you deserve a festive treat too!) we've added FREE kid's ski & boot hire and lift pass, PLUS 50% OFF their holiday! Who said a Christmas ski holiday had to be expensive? Click here to find out more about our FAMILY SKI SAVERS...

choosing your ski resort for a perfect white Christmas

There's nothing like waking up on Christmas morning and experiencing the joy of snow outside your window, but it's not always the most likely of outcomes back home. If you book a Skiworld holiday during the December ski season, you and your party are guaranteed a spectacular white Christmas!

We've plenty of options for where to spend your Christmas ski break, depending on what you want from your holiday. For a Christmas skiing in Europe, take your pick from Austria, Switzerland or France.Advanced skiers will appreciate the challenging slopes of the lively resort of St Anton in Austria. The country's principal ski resort is a mountain town offering a vast ski area with a few black runs that are not for the faint-hearted.

We also offer Christmas skiing trips in Canada and the USA. Those wanting a Canadian skiing break must experience one of the most exciting resorts in the world, Whistler, where the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains combine to form the largest ski area in Canada. Or, if you are feeling ambitious, you may like to try Christmas skiing in the resort of Vail in Colorado. Vail is America’s largest ski resort and is the largest single ski mountain in North America.
