Peaks, Slopes, And Snow: Planning Your Next Chalet Escape

‘You’re either into skiing, sledging, skating, or snowboarding, or you’re not.  However, once you’ve fallen in love with time away in the fresh mountain air, you’ll end up returning every year to get your snowy fix…’

As with any getaway, planning and preparation are the keys to the success of your trip. Therefore, it’s crucial that you plan well in advance so that you can make the most of your mountainous escape, and return home feeling recharged and ready for normal life to resume. Routine can often become your best friend when on a skiing or chalet adventure; the cold weather will have a lot to do with when you sleep, eat, relax, and enjoy the fresh air. Therefore, the more you have organised when you arrive, the better your break will be.

It’s time to get your notebook and pen ready, and you’ll need to begin writing lists of things to buy, pack, book, and organise so you can arrive feeling confident and relaxed about your holiday. Your focus should be on getting the facts, and staying warm, safe, and comfortable throughout your trip, and ensuring that you have a memorable and fun getaway; whether you’re travelling solo, going with a loved-one, family, or friends.

The following are some ideas, inspiration, and advice for those heading towards the peaks for a break in the crisp white snow on the slopes.


Take A Weight Off

You might be a newbie skier, or perhaps you just want as little stress as possible during your getaway; using the skills, expertise, and knowledge of others is your best bet regarding everything going to plan. Therefore, it’s worth looking into using companies like Andorra Ski Holidays who will ensure that you’re able to get your ideal break away.

Think of the things that are most important about your trip to the slopes; it might be the number of slopes, the nightlife, or whether there’s a reputable ski school or not. Ski holiday experts will know the right destination for you and your travel companions, so it’s always worth heading their way first, rather than trying to sort everything out yourself. You’ll also be able to compare prices and get the best deal so that you’re making the most of the money you invest in your holiday; this might just increase the number apres ski situations you can enjoy!

All The Gear

Again, it’s worth having as much planned beforehand so that you don’t have to waste valuable time that you could be spending on the slopes, on sorting things out when you’re there. Therefore, it’s worth investing in some quality, ski holiday essentials to take with you, and not struggling to find something comfortable that fits in the hire-centre at the base of the mountain.

You’re more than likely to keep returning to ski each year, so invest in quality items that will stand the test of time (and style), and you won’t have to worry when your next skiing trip rolls around. Keep planning and safety in mind, and you’ll have the best time cutting through the snow on your next mountain getaway.
