What Not to Do on a Ski Holiday

What Not to Do on a Ski Holiday 1500 1125 Helen Orford

Welcome, snow enthusiasts, thrill-seekers, and winter wanderers! As the frosty winds beckon and the mountains call out to us, it’s time to gear up for an exhilarating ski holiday. But hold onto your ski poles, because before you glide into the snowy wonderland, let’s navigate through some essential dos and don’ts to ensure your ski getaway is nothing short of spectacular!

1. Don’t Miss Out on Early Bird Deals:

Picture this: you, cruising down the powdery slopes with the sun kissing your cheeks and a grin stretching from ear to ear. Now, imagine getting all of this at a steal! Don’t let those early bird deals slip through your gloves. Keep your eyes peeled for discounts and packages that make your ski adventure more affordable and unforgettable.

2. Don’t Skip on Professional Lessons:

While it might seem tempting to rely on your friend’s questionable ski tips or your own “YouTube University” crash course, investing in professional lessons is the gateway to mastering the slopes safely and confidently. Ski instructors are like wizards of the snow, equipped with the spells (read: techniques) to turn even the clumsiest beginners into graceful skiers. Trust us, it’s worth every penny!

We got in touch with Ken Smith from Progression Ski and Snowboard School. They offer a full range of private ski lessons, adult and kids group lessons and off-piste classes in Val d’Isère and Tignes throughout the winter. We regularly work with Progression Ski to provide ski lessons for our luxury ski holiday guests. Click here to read their top tips for nervous or beginner skiers.

3. Don’t Forget to Pack the Right Gear:

As you pack your suitcase (or your snow-proof duffel bag), remember that the right gear can make or break your ski holiday. From snug thermal layers to waterproof jackets and pants, don’t skimp on accessories like gloves, goggles, and helmets. Want to Travel Light?

Pro tip: If you’ve bought ski/boarding boots ahead of your holiday, break them in before hitting the slopes to avoid those dreaded blisters!

4. Don’t Miss Out on Après-Ski:

La Folie Douce

Picture this: the sun setting behind the majestic peaks, casting a golden glow over the snow-covered landscape. You’ve shed your ski gear and found yourself amidst an outdoor party on the mountain. The air is filled with laughter and the infectious beat of a live DJ. Tables are transformed into impromptu dance floors as skiers and snowboarders, fueled by the adrenaline of the day’s adventures, groove to the rhythm with Aperol Spritz in hand. This is the essence of après-ski – where the camaraderie of fellow adventurers and the euphoria of the mountains converge into an unforgettable celebration. Here’s a guide to the best après-ski spots in the French Alps.

5. Don’t Settle for the Cheapest Accommodation:

Now, let’s talk about the pièce de résistance of your ski holiday – your accommodation. While it might be tempting to opt for the budget-friendly option, choosing the right ski accommodation can elevate your experience. As a new skier, having a luxurious retreat to unwind in after a day on the slopes is not just a treat but a necessity. Imagine soaking in a hot tub, recounting your adventures by the fireplace, and sinking into a plush bed for a well-deserved rest. Trust us, splurging on a cosy catered chalet or a chic ski-in/ski-out serviced apartment is an investment in unforgettable memories and unparalleled comfort. Discover Consensio’s exclusive collection of Ultimate Catered Chalets, Relaxed Catered Chalets and Serviced Alpine Apartments in the French Alps.

So, there you have it, fellow snow seekers – a guide to steering clear of the common pitfalls and embracing the magic of a ski holiday with open arms. From seizing early bird deals to indulging in professional lessons and choosing the perfect ski accommodation, every decision is a step closer to carving out unforgettable moments on the slopes. So, buckle up your boots, adjust your goggles, and prepare to chase adventure where the snow meets the sky. The mountains are calling, and it’s time to answer with a resounding “yes”!
