Ski resorts at Christmas have to be one of the most magical places to spend your special day. Cosy-up in front of your luxury chalet’s fire with festive nibbles and drinks, open presents under the beautifully decorated Christmas tree, head out onto the mountains for a Christmas ski, enjoy gourmet Christmas dinner cooked, served and cleaned away and then head out into town to enjoy the local festivities… there really is so much to do! So much so that you may not fit it all into one day – but don’t worry, because you have a whole week to eat, drink, ski and be merry!

Apres ski – arguably one of the best parts of your ski holiday. Being one of the World’s most renowned ski areas, Chamonix has to extend its reputation to apres too!

There are plenty of drinking establishments to top off your awesome day on the slopes. Whether you choose to unwind with a hot chocolate with the kids, or with a pint (or pitcher) of that well deserved beer, everyone can be satisfied with endless choices!
Ahh, the annual ski holiday (or bi-annual for those lucky snow fiends amongst you), a definite highlight of the winter and the whole year.
