Why You Should Book Your Luxury Ski Holiday Early

When booking a luxury ski holiday, it pays to be organised. There are many fantastic benefits to be enjoyed when you book early, including the best choice of accommodation, location and travel. At Alpine Luxury Chalets, we recommend booking your trip well in advance of your departure date. 


If you’re looking to travel in a large group, there are many more options for booking an entire chalet to yourself. You might also benefit from group discounts on top of fantastic early booking savings. Exclusive resorts like Val d’Isere, Courchevel, Meribel, Verbier, St Anton and Lech always sell out fast for any size of group, so it’s best to book early if you’ve got your heart set on a particular destination. This is especially important for peak weeks like Christmas, New Year, February Half Term and Easter. By the end of the current ski season, many chalets and hotels are over 50% booked for the following season’s peak dates.

Getting ahead of the crowds also gives you the best choice of dates. You can book your annual leave well before anyone else in the office. If you prefer the fresh powder in February or sunny springtime skiing in March, you can get away at the time most convenient for you. 

Securing your ski holiday well in advance also gives you plenty of time to get yourself completely organised. You can book the best seats on flights from your most convenient airport, get first pick on childcare, ski guiding and tables at the top restaurants in resort: ensuring your holiday is the best it can be.

The best part about booking early? You’ll have something to look forward to all summer!
