This season, as Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve fall on a Saturday (Christmas Day and New Year’s Day on a Sunday) most operators decided to change their usual Saturday/Sunday departure dates so that guests would not have to travel on festive days. In order to get back to operating on the usual departure days, operators have had to offer short break options for the first week of January.
If you are thinking about a short ski break we suggest you take advantage of this January week as not only will you get your holiday at a great price, there is usually great snow at this time of year too! Below are the main three January departure dates, duration options and operators;
Monday 02nd – Sunday 08th Jan (6 nights) – Club Med/VIP/YSE/Scott Dunn
Tuesday 03rd – Saturday 07th Jan (4 nights) – Neilson/Skiworld/Ski Cuisine
Tuesday 03rd – Sunday 08th Jan (5 nights) – Ski Olympic/Le Ski/ Ski Val
If you are not sure of the best options, just give our friendly team a call 020 7801 1080 and tell us roughly what you are looking for in your ski short break holiday (budget, number of people in your party, type of resort and accommodation etc) and we will find the best option for you.
To help your with you choose a short break, we have selected our top January short ski break chalets below;
1. Chalet Haus Hockar **** St Anton, Austria – Sleeps 10-11
Due to the way St Anton as a resort is laid out there are very few chalets where you have the benefit of being able to ski from the door. The chalet Haus Hochkar is different because you can which is quite special in this resort. All you need to do is open the door, put on your skis and glide down the snow to the lifts, nursery slopes, ski school and kids kindergarten.
Dept 2nd Jan for 6 nights - Was £1,329pp Now £1,229pp includes flights/transfers and chalet board.
The Club Alaska is located in a central location in Morzine and has stunning interiors, a full wet suite with sauna and hot tubs and just 250m from the Pleney piste. The decor in the chalet is deliberately restrained, using subtle lighting to highlight the eaves, vaulted ceilings and sleek, clean lines. The colours in the chalet are soothing and neutral making for a calming atmosphere.
Dept 2nd Jan for 6 nights - Was £1,149pp Now £1,049pp includes flights/transfers and chalet board.
Chalet Armoise in Tignes is situated between the lake and Val Claret. It is a traditionally built alpine chalet offering lots of charm and provides relaxing accommodation in a quiet area of the resort. Only 500m from the nearest lift and the ski bus stops just 50m away.
Dept 3rd Jan for 4 nights - Was £489pp Now £369pp includes flights/transfers and chalet board.
Chalet Rosablanche in Nendaz is one of the smart, modern chalet apartments in the stunning Mer de Glace development. This is situated just 150 metres from the main lifts and also close to the 'old' centre of Nendaz with its shops, bars and restaurants. Modern building techniques and quality have been mixed with local Swiss architectural tradition to produce a chalet development of the highest order.
Dept 3rd Jan for 4 nights - Was £537pp Now £468pp includes flights/transfers and chalet board.
The Chalet Hotel Aalborg could hardly be better located. Set back away from the busy main road it is positioned at the foot of the home pistes and nursery slopes with several smaller chairlifts and Poma lifts within 50 metres of the hotel's front door. The main Diable gondola station is no more than 300 metres away (3 minute's walk) which means no matter what standard skier or boarder you are you can access the slopes very easily in the morning and ski back to the hotel's door at the end of the day.
Dept 3rd Jan for 4 nights - Was £579pp Now £445pp includes flights/transfers and chalet board.
The Chalet Hotel Chamois d'Or is a large property with a fantastic location in Val d'Isere. Situated at the foot of the Face piste on Bellevarde, you can ski from the door to the main lifts, nursery slopes and ski school meeting points and it is also only five minutes walk from the resort centre, so it is absolutely ideal for families as well as keen skiers.
