When to go Winter Season 2012/13

For anyone constrained by school vacations, consider:

  • Pre-Christmas (w/c 16 Dec) will be cheaper, quieter and the last 2 winters have seen great snow at this time
  • Christmas (w/c 23 Dec) – only Artemis left but some hotels have availability
  • New Year (w/c 30 Dec)– we have some hotels with very limited availability – but it is expensive
  • Feb half term is not overlapping with the Paris school vacations so there is still a little availability and it should be a little less busy than usual
  • Easter is the top tip this year – early Easter means w/c 23 and w/c 30 March will be within school vacations and the snow should still be fantastic

For those not constrained by school vacations, consider:

  • W/c 9 Dec is a bargain week for anyone for whom the summer has been too long!
  • March off peak is reduced from 4 weeks to 2 weeks due to later French vacations and earlier Easter – so it is likely to be busier and more expensive than usual
  • January is therefore the time to go if you are looking for the best balance of great snow and lower prices
  • Post Easter (w/c 07 and w/c 14 April) should offer some great spring skiing, especially in high altitude resorts
