Winter activity holidays such as snowboarding and skiing have fast become a popular annual pastime for groups of friends and families. Once perhaps only for the more affluent traveller due to its expense; the advent of online booking has helped reduce costs and allowed more individually tailored packages, so that holidaymakers need no longer choose between their beloved two weeks in the sun and the guaranteed fun of winter sports.
Many of the top holiday merchants available through TravelPixel have a dedicated section for ski breaks such as First Choice, Lowcost Holidays, Lastminute.com, Neilson Active and Expedia, or you may find them through local interest companies like Balkan Holidays or Pierre & Vacances. However, there are also specialist merchants in our Ski and Snowboard section that provide a dedicated service in winter activity breaks, such as Inghams and Crystal. These companies also impart their vast knowledge of winter sports and their respective resorts situated throughout the USA, Canada and the mountains and Alps of Europe in France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Bulgaria.
There are a variety of packages available with a choice of apartment and chalet-style accommodation featuring a range of added luxuries such as post activity spas or an in-house chef. Plus, there are many bookable extras or deals within each package that may include ski lift passes, ski or snowboard hire and discounts off of ski school for adults and children alike, alongside free nights and car hire or private transfers. By booking online, you can put together your own bespoke package or compare the best packages that suit you and/or your group at the pistes that are suited to particular levels of proficiency. Additionally, the specialist winter sport sites found on TravelPixel can also give you more in-depth resort information such as snow reports and where to find the best après-ski.
