Christmas may be over, New Year almost upon us, and a much-needed snowfall is due in the Alps within days…so now must be the time to book a low-season January ski holiday. We’re starting to see a couple of deals for February and April, too.
Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – especially important during peak holiday periods. If you’re flying from Gatwick, Cophall Parking has some offers just for Welove2ski viewers.
Due to readers’ requests, we now also have our ski holiday prices in euros (with the exchange rate correct at the time of writing), although you should contact tour operators direct for a quote that doesn’t include travel from the UK.
