Book now for Christmas 2021

Book your Christmas ski holiday now to secure your spot on the slopes! Popular properties fill up quickly for peak dates, and as conditions were superb for Christmas 2019 (and the snow was good for Christmas 2020), we expect Christmas to be a popular date to go in future seasons. Those gorgeous, cosy chalet apartments that are perfect for an idyllic Christmas together, fill up fast, so book well in advance to secure your ideal accommodation. 

Christmas ski holidays include a return Eurotunnel crossing (with a free FlexiPlus upgrade) or you can book accommodation only. 

Christmas dates

This year, Christmas falls on a Saturday so, for many properties, whilst we have not completely finalised our arrival days for all properties for December 2021, we anticipate that there will be some changes to the usual Saturday start date over this period only. Dates will vary by property so do check but we anticipate the following with Christmas week skiing starting on Saturday 18th December 2021. 

  • Saturday 18th December - Sunday 26th December 2021 (8 nights)
  • Sunday 26th December 2021 - Sunday 2nd January 2022 (7 nights)
  • Sunday 2nd January - Sunday 9th January 2022 (7 nights)
  • Sunday 9th January - Saturday 15th January 2022 (6 nights)
  • Following that arrivals will revert to Saturday as usual in most cases.

Christmas Snow Record

Nearly all our resorts have a snow range above 1500m (around 5,000ft). Altitude is, however, not the only important factor.


Some areas like the Grand Massif or Mont-Blanc Val d’Arly benefit from a microclimate because of their close proximity to Europe’s highest peak, Mont-Blanc. These areas have a much more reliable snow record than other resorts at the same altitude or even some higher-up.

North-Facing Slopes

Other important factors for good snow are North-facing slopes, as whatever cover they get will simply last longer. What lies below the snow cover is also of importance: a few centimetres will be enough to ski on pasture whereas more will be required to cover a rocky surface.

Snow Cannons

Finally, resorts that have snow cannons to cover the lower slopes (generally the nursery slopes) offer a good guarantee. These will normally run at night from early December to top up on natural snow cover.

Above all, check the hard facts as in the end the snow history over a period of time is the only reliable indicator. Over the past 8 years, skiing was available in all our featured resorts. Please see individual resort pages for historical snow records.
