Christmas & New Year
Experience the magic of the mountains in your own winter wonderland this December and enjoy the ultimate festive celebration. We’ll take away all the usual hassles by managing your itinerary and arrangements throughout. Enjoy the most relaxing Christmas ever with none of the usual preparations and household chores!
Celebrate in Style
The mountain villages come alive at Christmas and many of our hotels host festive events for you to enjoy with your family. We can oversee your plans, from forwarding luggage and presents in advance, to magical sleigh rides and of course your skiing arrangements in our bespoke programmes. You’ll be invited to our Christmas lunch party on the slopes with all the trimmings and a special visit from Father Christmas too. Our teams are on hand throughout to ensure your precious time is well spent.
Discover New Experiences
Why not surprise the family with a sleigh ride through the forests to a hidden refuge and enjoy a delicious fondue, or let us design a snow-shoe safari with our guides to explore your own winter wonderland?
Bring the Whole Family
With a range of accommodation options for large and extended families you can all be together to celebrate. Choose from hotels with extended suites and family apartments or larger private properties in our Owners Collection, all with beautiful facilities and support from our dedicated resort teams.
