So, Christmas is done for another year, a New Year has been welcomed in, work has begun again after the festive break and everyone else appears to be dieting, detoxing and joining the gym. January doesn’t exactly have the best reputation for being fun, does it?!
What you really need is something to look forward to, something to beat the January blues. How about a great value skiing holiday?
Here are our top five reasons to book your January break:
The Best Workout
Who needs the gym when you’ve got a whole mountain for your workout? And after a day’s exercise on the slopes, it’s easy to justify that slice of cake and a three-course meal in the evening!
With over 600 kilometres of pistes, the Three Valleys can comfortably manage the crowds during the peak weeks, but during January this vast ski area opens up and it’s not uncommon to find the piste all to yourself. And it’s not just the slopes that are quieter; the lift queues are shorter (or non existent!) and the best restaurant tables easier to come by.
Top Snow Conditions
If you are looking for the best snow conditions, then this really is the time to go. Many people worry about the cold in January but the lower temperatures will give you top quality pistes with perfect powder on the sides.
Perfect For Pre-Schoolers
Make the most of travelling outside of the school holidays and take advantage of the best snow - these conditions are much easier for a child’s first foray into the wonderful world of skiing than the ice and slush that comes later in the season. Children can be very resilient and as long as they are wrapped up well, they usually cope well in the cold – and the promise of a hot chocolate always goes down well too!
And if all of this wasn’t enough, you will also find our January holidays offer great value. In particular we have a Meriski Skiers Week on 8th January, which can be included in either Chalet Bellevue or Impala Lodge whole chalet bookings. Our Skiers Weeks include 5 days complimentary ski tuition (worth 2000 euros!) with Christophe Anthèlme, an expert private ski guide – an opportunity not to be missed!
