Why a Luxury Ski Holiday Can Make a Magical New Year

8th December 2016

New Year’s Eve can often be a disappointment after the highs of the Christmas period, so what better way to avoid an anti-climax and carry on the festivities than with a memorable trip to the slopes! Here’s why a luxury ski holiday can make a magical new year:

Quality Time with Friends and Family

What better excuse to get all the friends and family together than with a luxury skiing/snowboarding holiday! With plenty of activities to do in the day there really will be something for everyone, and if you stay in your own private luxury chalet, everyone can relax under one roof after a long day.

Incredible Atmosphere

One thing that is guaranteed at a Ski Resort over the New Year’s period is an incredible atmosphere. From spectacular firework displays to festivals and parties, there’s always something going on! Bars tend to hold their own parties and restaurants often lay on a special menu and perhaps some entertainment. So, either dance the night away in an Après ski bar or if you’d prefer a quieter night, chill out by the fire with a glass of mulled wine in a cosy bar.

New Year’s Eve Parties in Courchevel and Meribel

Courchevel and Meribel are magical places to spend the festive season. It is traditional for hordes of people to head into the town for the big countdown and Meribel New Year’s Eve Party, accompanied by an incredible firework and torch light display. Likewise, Courchevel celebrates the New Year in style, with the Courchevel 1850 New Year’s Eve Party and ‘Party on the Piste’ being a favourite with holiday goers.

Local Cuisine

We can always make room for more food after Christmas, right? After a long day on the slopes what better way to refuel than with some local specialities. Plus, if you stay in a luxury catered ski chalet all the hard work will be done for you (yes that means no washing up too!) If you fancy some fine dining, Courchevel and Meribel has an enormous contingency of outstanding restaurants.

Bring in the New Year in Style

What better way to welcome in the new year than on the slopes! Snow fall is usually good at this time of year and the slopes tend to be a bit quieter; so, although we can’t make any guarantees, it’s likely that you will be able to enjoy some fresh powder on and off-piste!

Escape the English Weather

Avoid the miserable English weather and wake up to snow-covered mountains in an idyllic setting? Yes please. No more wishing for a White Christmas in England when you can enjoy a White New Year on the slopes!

It’s Special

The New Year period is a magical time to be in the mountains and is guaranteed to be one you’ll never forget.
