Useful things to know

Look at the cheaper weeks before Christmas, most years conditions are still amazing and the week is always very reasonably priced.
When looking at resorts, don’t be too quick to choose a resort with a glacier in case of bad snow. When the snow is bad every single person will be on that slope and it might not be the essential addition you thought it was. Better to book a long lunch or some of our amazing experiences instead.
There is a huge variety of restaurants on and off the mountain. Zermatt has some of the very best but you must book in advance! Don’t worry, we can do this for you.
The season mainly starts from mid December giving you a week or two before Christmas and going on until the middle of April. Resort like Val d’Isere and Zermatt where you can ski on the glacier, open earlier in November and close later in May. This does however depend on the snow.
