With people now trickling back to work after the Christmas and New Year holiday, we are now beginning to see some brand new ski deals. And January skiers certainly get the best deal of all – with prices cheaper, slopes less busy and conditions often superb.
Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – this is especially important during peak holiday periods. If you’re flying from Gatwick, Cophall Parking has some offers just for Welove2ski readers.
