December 25th is looming large, and we all know that the ‘Christmas present situation’ must be tackled soon. With that in mind, we’ve put together our best list of ski related stocking fillers. We’ve taken the words ‘reasonably priced’ and ‘useful’ as our mantra this year. Very practical, we know, but the thinking is that you’ll have more cash left over for that all-important ski holiday.
Well, we all know that we can’t rely on the British weather to deliver us a white Christmas, so the best way to be sure of snow is to book a pre-Christmas ski holiday. It’s a great time of year to visit the mountains, not only is there snow, but there are also Christmas markets, spiced vin chaud and all that warm and fuzzy festive spirit to revel in. Here are our top five places where you can make skiing your early Christmas present to yourself.
What could be better than skiing for Christmas? No sticky sofa lethargy, no inlaw-based dilemmas; get a catered chalet and you don't even have to think about the washing up! And what could feel more festive than a twinkly white world outside, just waiting for you to tear it up with abandon?
Read on for three clever Christmas ideas (plus three pre-Christmas ideas too, in case you really can't wait!)...
