If you’ve been visiting our website regularly, you’ll know that conditions are much improved in the Alps, following the comeback of decent winter weather last Thursday and Friday. Some 30-50cm fell at many of the Austrian, French, and Swiss resorts. And if that’s not enough to tempt you…all that white stuff at home must surely be getting you in the mood for skiing? Here at Welove2ski we’ve been getting out our snow boots and ski jackets just for a walk in the park.
To have a reasonable choice of where to stay, when to go and how to get there this winter, it makes sense to book as soon as you can. In our weekly post we feature the top ski deals available from a variety of tour operators. Make sure you also check out the offers pages on tour operator websites, and don’t forgot the likes of Go Ski ifyouski.com, igluski.com, Ski Solutions, Sno, and Snowfinders. Check also our features on airline luggage allowances and driving.
