Where to Ski at New Year?
With such a wide variety of destinations to choose from around the world, it can be tricky to find the right ski holiday for you at any time of the year, and at New Year can be even trickier! Your ideal location could differ depending on your skiing ability, the size of your group, and the type of ski holiday you’re looking for. So here are a few suggestions to help you decide.
If you want to do New Year in the Alps properly, you need to head to Tignes. Here big-name DJs grace the ski resort with a free outdoor party every year. A well as this the fireworks can be seen across the Tarantaise Valley! Tignes is an especially brilliant location if you enjoy a good party.
Val d’Isère is home to some of the best ski slopes in Europe and has a vibrant après-ski that can’t be matched. On New Year’s Eve, head down to the roundabout in the centre of town for an unofficial gathering that offers their own countdown. Remember to look out for champagne corks flying through the air at the stroke of midnight. You may even spot a celebrity or two skiing on the slopes or in one of the many bars.
As we are one of the only tour operators offering ski chalets in USA this season, peak dates such as this sell out quickly. We still have some availability in Vail, which is the largest ski resort in the USA and the largest single ski mountain in North America. Here, at New Year, you can enjoy holiday-themed family activities throughout the day, as well as live performances and star-studded parties all night.
Other ski resorts for breaks at New Year include Les Deux Alpes, renowned for its superb snow conditions and buzzing town centre. Then there is the trendy ski resort of Méribel nestled in the Trois Vallées where the local bars put on their own New Year shaped celebrations after the Torchlit Descent. The more adventurous may wish to venture to Mayrhofen in Austria. Here the fireworks start at midday and the street parties go on all night!
