How to enjoy Christmas, whether you Love it or Loathe it!


For some people, the holidays over Christmas really are the most magical time of the year, for others it’s just another holiday and they are desperate to get away from it all!

Take a Skiworld holiday and you can experience either. Book a catered ski chalet and you can enjoy the festive atmosphere. You can always do your own thing, or if you prefer, book your own self-catering apartment. Remember in ski resorts, the 25th of December is just another day in terms of lift opening times, so get on the slopes early and you’ll have some pistes all to yourself. Ok, at some stage you may have to dodge a fancy dress skiing Santa, but, hey…
Plus, remember if booking a chalet, you don’t need to lift a finger in terms of cooking, washing up or cleaning etc…

Here’s a small selection of resorts you could choose from if you love Christmas…

WHISTLER, CANADA

Whistler is an incredible resort to experience over the Christmas period!
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 great. They can really get into the festive spirit on the slopes as well, take a look at the ski lift!

MAYRHOFEN, AUSTRIA

Mayrhofen Christmas holidays spent skiing in any resorts in Austria are fantastic, Austrian resorts love to dress the snow covered streets, chalets and shops with decorations. There always seems to be a wonderful atmosphere without being overly commercial in the festive season. Mayrhofen is especially good, with its own traditional Christmas market in the town; it’s a real winter wonderland, with traditional carol concerts amongst an array of festive events.

LES ARCS, FRANCE

Les Arcs is another superb ski area to consider. It offers a great variety of challenging skiing and – and of course the excellent cable car link to the La Plagne ski area. Arc 1950 is arguably the most attractive of the villages, and especially during the festive period, there’s a real charm about the place. Take a look at Arc 1950’s video of Christmas celebrations in resort.

Here’s a small selection of resorts you could choose from if you prefer to concentrate on the skiing…

VAL THORENS, FRANCE

Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in the whole of Europe at 2,300m, so your skiing/boarding is assured. If you like to cover as much skiing as possible whilst on your holiday, again this is the place as it’s just one resort within the magnificent (600km) ‘Three valleys’ ski area. A great choice if you’re all about the skiing!

TIGNES, FRANCE

Tignes boasts some superb access to snow-sure slopes, due to its high altitude and excellent snow record. Part of the ‘Espace Killy’ ski area, it is especially good for intermediate skiers and boarders, with 300km of pistes, as well some incredible off-piste. Check out the Grande Motte glacier at 3456m. Enjoy those slopes!

ST ANTON, AUSTRIA

St. Anton has a charming and picturesque village centre, but is world-renowned for its serious après-ski and an incredible ski area. With 340km of challenging pistes to explore, this is a fun playground for any skier or boarder that likes a challenge. The partying is always good too!
