New Year and Half Term Chalets 19/20

| | Ski Chalets

Following on from a busy summer for winter bookings coupled with the main ski holiday selling period, which is now in full swing, the peak weeks for the 2019/2020 season are beginning to look quite full. There is no doubt that groups looking to take a ski chalet for exclusive use for a peak week need to be organised in order to bag the best properties. Many families will repeat book a year ahead and others get their act together to book their favourite chalets long before the first flakes of winter snow begin to fall.

Already Christmas and New Year week are 68% sold out and the February 2020 half term week 62% sold out. Over the next 2 to 3 months we expect approximately another 25% of the market to sell which will mean that by the beginning of the season nearly all the market’s properties available for exclusive will be sold for the peak weeks. If you are a group just thinking of getting a chalet booked up for next winter now is the time to get your group organised – there’s not a moment to lose.

However, don’t despair – you’re not too late. Although many of the popular ski chalets have already been booked there are still plenty that remain un-booked. Some of these available chalets are real beauties, and we can’t fathom why they haven’t been snapped up yet.A selection of the best chalets still available for Christmas, New Year and February Half Term weeks for the 2019-2020 winter season.

Christmas week

We are seeing much higher demand for this week than we normally do. Perhaps the great early snow last season has restored confidence regards potential snow cover or perhaps the way Christmas and Boxing Day fall this year going away for this week is definitely back in fashion.

  • Interior décor and style to match the 5 star service

New Year week

New Year week is always in high demand and this season sees no change to that trend. Brexit or no Brexit it makes no difference – clients want to be in the Alps for New Year.

Half Term (15th – 22nd February 2020)

For many the mid-term week in February is THE week to go skiing. It offers the deepest snow cover (mid-winter season) and the weather is generally beginning to warm a little, also offering the chance of lots of sun.

Good value

  • Arguably the best chalet in the Alps
  • Fantastic spa facilities, amazing views, world beating service and chalet catering
  • Eye watering prices to match quality but if you want the best you gotta pay for it

I completed my 1st winter ski season as a ski bum after leaving school. Travelling out to Sauze d'Oulx, Italy, (not knowing one ski resort from another) and with just a basic Italian phrase book in my rucksack I found a job in a hotel as a pot washer. However, I was also trained as a barista (before anyone knew what they were) which was enormous fun. After graduating from university I headed back to the Alps for a 2nd season. I was a handyman for Bladon Lines in Meribel, looking after their chalets and also those of sister company, Ski West. This was the best ski resort job ever. The 2nd season was followed by three fun but ultimately unrewarding years in a London advertising agency before I returned to the Alps yet again. A season for the Ski Club of Great Britain in St Anton was followed by another season working for Powder Byrne in Flims and Klosters, Switzerland. Returning to London I joined the fledgling Alpine Answers in 1995, becoming partner in 1997.
