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.
There's nothing quite like Christmas in the Alps and with events, activities and plenty of Christmas cheer, you're sure to have the time of your life.
Guests at the Belvedere in Grindelwald are in for a treat this Christmas and New Year!
With the Swiss celebrating Christmas on the 24th December, the whole family can enjoy two days of festive fun in Grindelwald! Visits from Santa Claus and choirs singing carols on the 24th will make your Christmas Eve special, whilst on Christmas Day you'll enjoy our very own Powder Byrne ‘Big Family Christmas’ on the mountain!
You’ll be joined there by all of the PB families in the resort so the children will be surrounded by their new friends and the Powder Byrne team will be on hand to celebrate Christmas in style, too.
New Year’s Eve certainly isn’t missed in Grindelwald either, with the roads shut down, the eve of the 31st sees locals take to the streets and quite literally ring in the new year by going bar to bar with their cowbells, ringing in the new year whilst enjoying the festivities with well wishers along the way. Take it all in from the comfort of one of the bars, or join in yourself!
The stroke of midnight sees the village bring in the new year with spectacular fireworks displays that are treat for the entire family.
Those staying in Grindelwald with novice skiers of 10 years plus can enjoy our SnoZone Beginners programme during the New Year week. Perfect for novice skiers of all ages due to the Bodmi nursery slopes just above the village, this is a great resort to introduce your kids to skiing this new year.
