Christmas and New Year are brilliant times of the year for a ski holiday, whether with friends or family, with lots of fun lined up both in our chalet-hotels and in the ski resorts themselves.

Your won’t miss out on festive traditions and treats if you take a Christmas ski holiday, as well as being virtually assured a white Christmas. Specific arrangements vary by hotel, but you can expect the likes of Bucks Fizz, pancakes and smoked salmon at breakfast, multi-course gourmet Christmas dinners, visits from Santa, a Christmas afternoon tea and seasonal kids’ activities including tree-decoration making. Plus all the usual Mark Warner trimmings from childcare for our younger guests to friendly staff and great central resort locations.

Meanwhile, our ski resorts in the French Alps, Austria and Italy celebrate Christmas and New Year in inimitable fashion, with everything from local customs, festive lighting brightening up the bustling local markets and Santa’s grottos to spectacular skiing displays, wild street parties and spectacular fireworks displays.
