Family Christmas in the Mountains

We decided to ask some of the well-travelled Skiworld family where they like to ski at Christmas. Maybe their suggestions will inspire your next trip! If you have any suggestions of your own please share them with us here, on Facebook or on Twitter

I grew up skiing there most Christmases and love the mountains in that area. For a family the accommodation is really nice too. I’ve been back quite a few times with my family so it must be good!


Brendan – North American Sales

I’m from the southern hemisphere so we go to the beach at Christmas! However, Whistler is the best place EVER to go snow sports adventuring at Christmas!!

I say this because the village feels like a winter wonderland full of snow, Christmas songs, drinks, food and decorations! The mountain is in great shape to carve groomers and the powder is getting closer to knee deep for some off-piste skiing (or huge snowman building). To cap it all off there are no lift lines! Why would I go anywhere else? Santa even delivers presents to the kids in some hotels!


Will – European Sales

Val d’Isere

After a long Christmas day skiing pristine snow in the fantastic L’Espace Killy ski area, there is nothing better than a bit of dancing on the tables in la Folie Douce before heading back to a cosy Skiworld chalet for a cracking Skiworld Christmas dinner with the rest of the family!


Alex – Tailor Made Sales


The Americans sure know how to celebrate Christmas! Aspen is pretty magical place at the best of times, so for Christmas, it’s on a whole other level. Incredible decorations and lights make the town a shining beacon of “The Holiday Season” for all visitors. Its a magical place for kids and the town and ski areas are really geared up to offer more than usual to make a Christmas ski break feel like the best you ever had. All that along with 4 awesome ski areas and transfer of less than 15 minutes keeps me very happy indeed!

La Plagne

Great skiing especially with the Vanoise Express link to Les Arcs. I love to ski down lovely little tree-lined paths which create a ‘winter wonderland’ feel around Christmas time, when everyone’s feeling festive.

The resort embraces the spirit of Christmas and there are usually lots of Santas (inflatable) to be spotted around the mountain!

Les Carroz in the Grande Massif area… Best Christmas day ski I have had!

Good snow day on quite empty slopes, then the Vin Chaud après in the decorated town centre was excellent for getting into the Christmas spirit! The evening was concluded by a midnight torch-lit descent by the ESF instructors which is free to sign up to and get involved as a member of the public.


Lucy Cufflin – Skiworld’s Executive Chef

I like skiing anywhere in Austria at Christmas as they love to dress the snow-covered streets, chalets and shops with decorations – a really great atmosphere without being overly commercial in the festive season.
