Top 5 Reasons To Book a Christmas Ski Holiday
Have you ever wondered what a white Christmas would actually look and feel like? In the Alps you wouldn’t even need to imagine.
Surrounded by traditional decorations, an insane amount of Christmas lights and of course snow, Santa’s skiing up and down the slopes and hot chocolate available every where you turn, a Christmas ski holiday will be sure to exceed your expectations. Luckily for us, ski resorts don’t close for Christmas, so get your Santa hat and beard at the ready for when you hit the slopes on Christmas morning.
Our resorts are full of festivities and catered chalets tailored to your needs so there is no need to worry, really. Whether you’re heading off for a family trip or with friends, we provide great value for money and unforgettable experiences. Prepare yourself for fun-filled days, festive meals and cosy evenings in front of the fire. Mountain Heaven have everything to ensure you enjoy and get the most out of your Christmas break as it really the most magical time of the year.
Ever considered a Christmas break on the slopes?
The Atmosphere of The MountainsThe festive season in the snowy alps is always a magical experience with lots of celebrating. The beauty the mountains hold and the christmassy atmosphere will be something to remember. Forget about the hustle and bustle of the busy UK towns and cities, you’ll be at peace and able to emerge yourself in relaxation.
Can you think of anything better than waking up to fresh snow on Christmas Day? It’d be like your own winter wonderland.
The slopes are of course open on Christmas Day so after you’ve finished opening your presents (and maybe acting surprised at some gifts that you know you would already get), you can hit the slopes and be greeted by a few Santa Claus’.
Forget the Cooking!As we all know, preparing and cooking during the Christmas period can be time consuming and stressful, (let’s avoid assuming it’s mum). There’s nothing quite like being able to enjoy a special day with loved ones where you don’t do anything.
That’s the dream, isn’t it?
Mountain Heaven put on a spectacular Christmas meal with all the trimmings. There are a range of superb restaurants and bars to grab a quick bite to eat, you’ll forget how to cook when you arrive home from your trip.
You should come and find out for yourself!
Christmas Festivities in Ski Resorts
1/2The Christmas festivities in the mountains will get you in the Christmas spirit if you have a difficult time doing so. In La Plagne, mark the start of the holidays with hot chocolate, vin chaud & of course, music. Visit Santa Claus & his wife, ride the slopes with a few other Santas but make sure you don’t lose your beard. This resort has many traditional festivities, plan ahead & take a look at more events leading up to Christmas.
You can enjoy a bit of night skiing on the Pleney if you’re staying in Morzine & don’t forget to watch the fireworks or the torch lit descent. There’s nothing quite like it.
Of course La Rosiere, La Tania & Courchevel also have magic of their own.
Christmas Festivities in Ski Resorts
2/2La Rosiere provides festive walks with a reindeer sized Saint Bernard dog and an impressive firework show to celebrate in style. Prepare yourself for their local festivities before you arrive. Whereas Santa cruises down to La Tania, a view we would all want to witness. A Christmas party is also held to lift spirits, sing carols and consume a bit of alcohol. Keep up to date with La Tania’s Christmas schedule.
Finally, if you’re considering staying in Courchevel, they have an epic New Year dance party and well, it’ll be sure to make you want to dance. A thrilling night out on the snow front is set to bring out a firework display just before the ball.
Christmas in these resorts should not be missed.
Quality TimeWe all know Christmas is about spending quality time with family and loved ones, and it’s a time where stress can reach an all time high. You spend a chunk of your time travelling to visit friends and family, only to realise there needs to be more than 24 hours in a day.
However, in a Mountain Heaven catered chalet, staff will be there to meet your needs so you and guests have a peaceful and relaxing stay. All you would have to worry about is choosing from a great selection of restaurants and bars to go out and celebrate!
You wouldn’t even need to consider loading your car with too many gifts acting like Postman Pat. Our chalets are here to help you relax and pamper you whenever required because we know you need it.
Amazing For KidsChristmas in a ski resort can be magical for anyone but for children it’s a different story. It’s an unforgettable experience which will bring them joy like no other. They’ll be able to pick their own Santa from the few on the slopes on Christmas Day. Can you imagine?
The Christmas week is a great choice for families as the kids are off school but it’s not as busy OR expensive as half term. Treat yourself and your children to your own winter wonderland, we don’t think they’ll ask for anything else after witnessing pure magic up in the mountains.
And as we are all aware, the festive break is mostly just us consuming too much food, but with exercise in the mix, where could you go wrong?
