January Skiing Holidays

January skiing

For the connoisseur, January is quite simply the best time for your skiing holiday. The snow is at its best, the pistes are quiet and the prices are more reasonable. In January all our Austrian and French ski resorts and ski areas will be fully open and offering some of the best, most extensive skiing for all levels in Europe: try Meribel ski holidays, for a huge ski area (600Kms) and access to the huge Three Valleys, or La Plagne ski holidays, with its wide open runs and rarely-frequented off-piste. Alternatively, for a lively town atmosphere, try Morzine ski holidays; or take your ski holiday in Tignes for almost limitless powder snow at this time of year and the excellent Espace Killy ski area - a mecca for all levels of skier and snowboarder.

Remember, January is the coldest month of the year in the Alps, so aside from assurance of great snow cover, it is important to bring the right clothes to keep you warm and toasty up on the slopes. You’ll need a base layer (thermal top and bottoms), a mid layer (fleece or soft shell) as well as your ski jacket and trousers. Also vital are insulating gloves and goggles, to keep any wind-blown snow out of your eyes.

If all of this sounds a bit too cold for your liking, try taking your January ski holiday to Morzine or Les Gets in the Portes Du Soleil Ski Area, which literally translates as the ‘Door to the Sun'. These 2 resorts are situated at an altitude of just over 1000m so Village life is a bit warmer than it's high altitude conterparts, yet you still have the lifts to take you high into the Portes Du Soleil Area. 

With all this snow about, remember to go fully equipped if you are venturing off-piste: you’ll need a transceiver, shovel and probe and for most excursions it is advisable to hire a mountain guide, who will ensure you find the best snow as well as keeping you safe. For those freestyle skiers and boarders among you, by January the snow parks will all be up and running, perfect for practising those tricks. Recommended is the Burton Stash Park in Avoriaz – part of the Portes du Soleil ski area linked to Les Gets and Morzine.


January snowTips For Cheaper Skiing this January

Make huge savings on your ski holiday this winter by taking a package ski holiday and one departing in January wil save you £'s over February rates - and you get the same great snow and Alpine Elements formula! A package will save money as it includes flights, breakfast, 3 course catering and transfers, as well as accommodation in France's premier ski destinations. Save yet more  free  unbeatable online booking discounts, and group offers where you can save an additional £200 a head for groups of 6 or more.


Self Drive January Skiing

The flexibility of driving to the alps will give you an extra 2 days on the slopes, and save your group up to £150p/per - esp over peak dates! Groups of 4 can save by going on a self drive ski holiday. The drive time is approximately 8 hours on the French side, tolls cost £30 and Ferry tickets start at £90 return. Fuel is usually a touch cheaper than UK pump prices. Two fill ups should get you there.


Pre Book Ski and board Hire

We are currently offering huge savings for pre-booked skis and boards, such as buy 1 get 1 free! Which means skis and boots cost from just £54 & £34 for children. Check out our Ski Hire deals.

Cheaper Insurance

Don't pay over the odds for a winter sports policy, but at the same time - ensure you are fully covered for your trip. Ours costs just £29 for peace of mind and includes (subj. to terms) airlifts, offpiste and on piste rescue, mountain rescue, repatriation & cancellation.  


Don't Risk It - Book A Package

If you want total holiday security then don't be tempted to DIY your holiday and book flights separately. Airline failure will mean you lose the cost of your flight and have the extra replacement cost of finding a new one. However if you book a flight inclusive package with a Holiday Company that has an ATOL license (ours is ATOL 6435) your monies will always be protected.


January Ski Conditions

January always gets the benefit of the first fresh snowfalls of the season. The temps are colder and thus the snow is dryer and in very healthy shape, allowing skis to grip more. January also benefits from crowd free slopes.

January 2015 offers great news for beginners too. Crowd free slopes will allow beginners to learn in a stress free atmosphere. The learning curve is further enhanced with cold, dry snow which stays in better shape.

Remember to add the airfuel and ensuite supls (if required)
And there is no free wine with the Hotels Bdn, The Ridge, Montana and Gelinotte
