Get active this winter

Once content with a fly-and-flop break to Spain or the Balearics, UK travellers have become increasingly selective about the kind of holidays they want to take.  Those looking for a getaway that offers a combination of relaxation, sightseeing and activities may want to think about booking a ski break. 

The thrill of hitting the slopes is intoxicating and this coupled with beautiful surroundings, the option of checking out local attractions and inviting après ski provide all the right ingredients for a battery recharging break.  

With a host of family, group and couple friendly packages available, early booking incentives andmoney-saving deals, a ski holiday needn’t break the bank.  Most people hire their equipment ‘in resort’, but if you want to save money on ski clothing, or it's your first time, it’s worth shopping around, checking out sites such as eBay and Freecycle, or borrowing clothes from friends.

There are ski resorts to suit every type of holiday maker; families may want to consider resorts in Italy and France which offer children’s ski schools, kids clubs and babysitting services.  Groups should look for large chalets where they can self-cater. They may also want to find resorts with the option of nightlife and après ski.  The dazzling white beauty of the ski-slopes could also be the perfect backdrop for a honeymoon to remember.  


It’s worthspending a little time researching your next ski break to make sure you invest your money wisely.  Those wanting to experience something a little more adventurous, individual and life-affirming often look towards online resources, such as for inspiration. Websites such as this offer a host of advice from experts and travellers so you can get a well-rounded and unbiased view of holiday destinations.
