Grab one of our deals as quickly as you can! Snow is falling at the moment and it is forecast to continue next week, so there is now bound to be a run on booking ski holidays. You can still celebrate Christmas in the mountains, take an early December break, or opt for a quiet January week where you can be sure of uncrowded slopes.
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.

Another great ski deal is in Zermatt. The Matterhorn Ski Weeks – are an amazing offer.
The web link is https://www.matterhornskiwochen.ch/en/welcome/
7 day Ski hire, 7 day international Ski Pass, 6 full days of ski instruction or for a small premium, you get 6 days of off piste with a guide including transceivers.
You get a choice of accommodation from apartments to rent to 5* hotels all at fixed prices. An alternative is to arrange your own accommodation and just get the 7 days Matterhorn Ski Week package.
I have been using this for the last nine or more years and for unto four weeks each season. I have enjoyed some of the best off piste skiing in untracked deep snow all over Zermatt and into Valtournenche.
A stunning special offer but not very well publicised, a shame as it deserves far more attention. Email them or book via their web site or via the hotels.
