What is the Best Month to Go Skiing?

Skiing is a great way to get out and enjoy the winter months. Whether you’re an experienced skier or just getting started, there’s something for everyone on the slopes. But when is the best time to go skiing? Let’s take a look at what factors should be considered when deciding on the best month for skiing.

 

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Skiing Month

When choosing the best month for skiing, there are several factors that should be taken into consideration. These include weather conditions, snowfall amounts, ski resort availability, and cost.

 

Weather Conditions

Weather conditions can have a huge impact on your skiing experience. If you’re looking for warmer temperatures and less wind, then you may want to consider going skiing in December, January, or April. However, if you’re looking for colder temperatures and more snowfall, then February or March may be better options.

 

Snowfall Amounts

The amount of snowfall can also play a role in your decision-making process. Generally speaking, ski resorts tend to receive more snowfall during the winter months of December through March. This means that if you’re looking for more powdery snow conditions, then these months may be ideal for your ski trip. If you’re staying in a high-altitude resort, like Courchevel or Val d’Isère, you can have great snow from November through to April and sometimes May.

 

Ski Resort Availability

Ski resorts tend to fill up quickly during peak season (December through February). If you’re looking for more availability at ski resorts, then consider going skiing in early December or March or April instead. This will give you more options when it comes to finding lodging and lift tickets at ski resorts. Be aware that during school holiday periods (Christmas, New Year’s Eve, February Half Term and Easter), availability will be scarce, so book early if you are travelling with school-age children.

Cost

The cost of a ski trip can vary greatly depending on when you go skiing. Generally speaking, prices tend to be higher during peak season (December through February), especially so during school holidays. If you’re looking to save money on your ski trip, then consider going in early December or March or April instead as prices tend to be lower during these months.

If you want a more affordable holiday, Consensio offers Luxury Serviced Apartments, alongside their Ultimate Catered Chalets and Relaxed Catered Chalets collections.

 

Conclusion

After considering all of these factors, it’s clear that there is no one-size-fits-all answer as to what is the best month for skiing. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference and what type of experience you’re looking for from your ski trip.

If you’re looking for warmer temperatures and less wind then December or January and April may be ideal; however, if you’re looking for colder temperatures and more snowfall, then February or March may be better options.

Additionally, if you’re trying to save money on your ski trip then consider going at the start of December or during March and April as prices tend to be lower during these months compared with peak season (December through February). We also recommend going outside of school holidays if you are able to and want to have a cheaper holiday with quieter pistes.
