Our Christmas Day
Christmas Day starts on Christmas Eve in a festively decorated chalet with Mulled Wine and Yuletide Log for afternoon tea. In the evening the kids can put out mince pies and Carrots for Santa.
On Christmas Day wake up to Bucks Fizz at breakfast along with a cooked breakfast and a continental buffet.
After a festive day on the slopes come home to a crackling log fire, a well laid table and your host serving an afternoon tea of Vin Chaud and Mince Pies.
To start the festive feast bubbly is served before pre-dinner canapés.
You can pop your crackers then tuck into a take on a festive classic; a starter of Smoked Salmon Cocktail.
Shortly afterward the mains will be served. This is a turkey roast with all of the trimmings and flowing wine; vegetarian options are available.
No Christmas day meal would be complete without a Christmas pudding. We serve ours with brandy butter and pouring cream.
Then relax, sit back and cosy up in front of the fire with an after dinner chocolate and freshly brewed tea or coffee! If you are in a premium plus property then a cheese board will be provided.

Christmas is always a festive celebration in any ski resort! A celebration enhanced by fresh falls of snow, warming log fires, firework displays and delicious servings of Vin Chaud! Our catered chalets and hotels are decorated with festive cheer, and a special festive menu is served for Christmas and New Year!
Our Catered Ski Chalets are decorated with festive cheer, and a feast is served for Christmas and New Year! They provide a magical environment for families, friends and children to feel truly involved in the spirit of Christmas.
Skiing at New Year and Christmas has always been the ideal time for a ski holiday. Why sit at home dreaming of a white Christmas when you can take a short flight and experience one for real instead? Why toil for hours over Christmas dinner only to have your 5-year-old complain they don’t like sprouts/stuffing/turkey, when you can fly away to your dream alpine destination and allow someone else to worry about cooking times and children’s fads?
A ski chalet holiday at Christmas time is the stuff of dreams. Snow falling gently outside the chocolate box chalet, perhaps a log fire or a champagne toast and canapes before dinner…presents under the Christmas tree (the one you didn’t have to buy and won’t have to lug to the recycling depot next week)…and, of course, powder snow and acres of excellent skiing.
It is advisable to go for a more snow-sure resorts, such as Tignes, Val D’Isere, or Les Arcs 2000, where the slopes will be nicely covered by mid December.
Christmas ski holidays certainly provide a lot to do both on and off the piste. Most resorts have a lot of events going on over the festive period: you can watch a torchlit descent or a children’s lantern procession on Christmas eve and enjoy fantastic firework displays to bring in the New Year.
Our Service at Christmas
Allow your chalet host to look after you with breakfast every day, afternoon tea cakes on your return from the slopes and a deliciously filling 3-course evening meal 6 nights a week. You’ll enjoy the privacy of your own room within the convivial atmosphere of a chalet full of like minded guests, and you’ll definitely have a Christmas to remember!
Please Note - The ski slopes and ski lifts are open as usual for the whole of Christmas and New Years day, so don't despair, skiing will not be reduced or restricted in any way over the festive period...See Ski All Inclusive
