frequently asked questions
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK A SKI WEEKEND?
Is it best to book a short break ski early in the year? Should I wait and book last minute? We all ask ourselves these questions when it comes to booking our ski trips for the winter.
Ski weekends and midweek ski breaks prices are frequently related to flight prices. Flight prices tend to increase with time and flights can get very expensive last minute. For this reason it’s fair to say that early bookers will always benefit from lower prices. Plus, the room choice is usually better in the hotels and chalets if you reserve your room before the last minute rush. From full en-suite rooms to sunny balconies, booking early will secure those little extras which are so important to us!
Ski weekends and midweek packages are on sale as early as May, so if you can plan your days skiing ahead, you can make great savings!
Is it best to organise a ski weekend independently or book it through an operator?
When booking a ski weekend or a short break ski, you must remember how precious your time on the slopes is. As you will be in resort for less than a week, all elements of your trip must be organised efficiently and with minimum time wasted.
Booking through a fully protected operator (always check ATOL certificates!) will assure transfer efficiency and will get you on the slopes faster. Lift Passes and ski hire are also easier if organised by the same company, prior to departure, rather than you walking around the resort (wasting your precious ski time!) looking for the right places to go and the best value offers. Let the operator do the job for you!
They can always get the best offers with ski hire shops and deliver the lift passes to you on arrival, saving you from those long queues in the lift pass office! A ski weekend or a short break ski is all about convenience and spending as much time as possible on the slopes, so flight times are also chosen to maximize your time in resort. So take advantage of the low cost early flights and have a great time in the mountains with only 1 or 2 days out of the office!
